Report: ‘Conservative’ evangelicals including Hobby Lobby execs are behind ad campaign using Jesus to promote illegal aliens, LGBTQ agenda
By JD Heyes // Feb 10, 2023

Christian evangelicals like the principal owners and executives of the retail chain Hobby Lobby are using Jesus and the Bible to promote the mass entry of illegal immigrants and the far-left LGBTQ agenda.

According to an extensive report from Revolver News, these 'conservatives' "are behind the new 'He Gets Us' and 'Jesus Was a Refugee' ads that are blowing up."

"These ads use the Bible and Jesus to validate and even promote the chaos at the border and also to appeal to the LGBTQ/trans communities. And these Evangelical groups say they’re just getting started. Apparently, they plan to make this a full-fledged PR campaign," the report continues.

As noted by NPR:

*The ads all stem from the central idea that “He Gets Us”. They discuss how “He” (Jesus Christ) was a refugee, had disdain for hypocrisy, and was also unfairly judged like other marginalized members of modern society.

* In one of the commercials, a black and white slideshow of photos tells the story of Central American migrants who must flee their home to avoid persecution. At the end, it is revealed the story being told is that of Jesus and his parents, Mary and Joseph.

* The ads are reportedly funded in part by the family that owns the notably religious craft store chain Hobby Lobby, according to Christianity Today, as well as other evangelical groups, including a foundation called The Signatry. Other donors have kept their identities anonymous.

This, at a time when the country is literally at its breaking point, financially and culturally speaking. The national debt has exceeded $31.5 trillion, the border has become an unmanageable mess that is porous and open, the drugs that are pouring in from Mexico -- whose cartels are using ingredients to manufacture deadly fentanyl obtained by China -- and our kids are being indoctrinated into LGBTQ perversion. "Why on earth would so-called 'conservatives' push this type of messaging?" Revolver News asked.

Answering the question, the report noted that Religious News Service reporter Bob Smeitana says it is because these individuals are seeking to change the "negative public views" about Christianity, which essentially is asking people to submit to the left's agenda, which is godless.

"Smietana says that the campaign is attempting to appeal to groups that may have felt excluded or repelled by the church in recent years, like members of the LGBTQ community, different races and ethnicities, those who lean more liberal politically, or people who have kept up with scandals of abuse," NPR reported further, noting that the individuals behind the campaign have bought ad time during the most expensive event of the year, the Super Bowl, which airs on Sunday.

"The group behind the campaign has also purchased an advertisement slot for this Sunday’s Super Bowl, one of the most expensive brand platforms out there. The estimated costs for those ads will run around $20 million," NPR added. "In an interview with Christianity Today, the branding firm for the campaign said the plan included investing $1 billion over the next three years, a budget comparable to that of a major brand."

Revolver News assigned an even darker motive to the ad campaign, which is obviously being bankrolled by business interests with deep pockets.

"It’s a tale as old as time — rich business owners want cheap labor and to appeal to a new 'customer' base, and they will happily sell the rest of us out to achieve it," the outlet surmised.

"Get woke, go broke? It remains to be seen if this progressive campaign will backfire on Hobby Lobby," the report noted, adding that it was a good time to remind readers that evangelicals are not always synonymous with "conservatism."
