A member of Congress who says she, herself, is Catholic has launched a diatribe against Christianity, calling the faith “fascism” and bluntly rejecting one of the Bible’s primary instructions to adherents, to spread the Good News.
During Sunday’s Super Bowl, an organization called He Gets Us apparently spent upward of $20 million for two ads that showed Jesus “as someone with empathy for immigrants and the [poor, who was also tired of the division of politics,” according to a report from Fox News.
The condemnation from U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat from New York who repeatedly has attacked the Christian faith from her position as an elected government official, said she didn’t believe that was right.
“Something tells me Jesus would *not* spent millions of dollars on Super bowl ads to make fascism look benign,” she claimed on social media.

Responses to her ranged from “I take it you don’t know Jesus,” to “Agreed, Of course he would also not support unlimited abortions, transing kids, open borders or socialism. So since you are talking about things Jesus wouldn’t do, I wanted to add a few other[s] since you seem to support all of these things he wouldn’t support.”
Fox reported the ads apparently were funded in part by the family behind Hobby Lobby, as well as a number of other Christian groups.
“The ads were an effort to spread the message of Jesus to LGBTQ+ people and other communities that have often felt unwelcome by Christianity,” the report said.

The Bible’s instructions give Christians the responsibility to take the Good News of Jesus to the “uttermost parts of the earth.”
One of the ads showed black-and-white images of migrants fleeing their homes to avoid persecution, then revealed it actually was about Jesus, his mother Mary and her husband Joseph.
Another showed black-and-white images of disputes over racial justice, pandemic lockdowns and politics, and stated, “Jesus loved the people we hate.” Watch one of the ads below:
Fox reported, “The He Gets Us campaign was launched in March 2022 and plans to spend $2 billion over the next several years. The ads direct viewers to a website that includes Bible readings, methods to chat with real people about religion and information about Jesus.”
The Washington Examiner noted, “Ocasio-Cortez, who identifies as Catholic, has previously channeled her faith to wade into political skirmishes. Back in 2020, she suggested that conservatives would largely reject Jesus if he were alive today.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?
Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?
Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?
No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.
Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.
WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
