    Besides Focus on the Family, the group making headlines over the super bowl ad, what other groups are there that pimp Jesus in an effort to advance a political agenda?

    Is there a definitive list?

    First, Abortion is only a political agenda because the government made it so. It is a God agenda to prevent abortion. It has been God's plan far longer than it has been a political issue.

    Jesus is not a political figure, and not a law figure. He is the Savior, and to be peoclaimed to the world. I will do so, even if it becomes illegal. Why, because it is above the law, and it is God's command.

    So, politics stole the abortion issue, and wants to kick God out of the matter. That will not happen.

    Pimp your god Satan somewhere else for he is also not a political issue. He does, however, have a political agenda, and all of it is immoral.

    So we agree that groups like Focus on the Family are guilty of pimping Jesus for political purposes.

    Glad to hear it. :thup:

    Yea, a non-profit organization is guilty of "pimping" Jesus.

    :doubt:

    Curious to know how you come to that conclusion, since the group is PAYING alot of money to get a message out, as opposed to making money off of it. And is Jesus even mentioned in the ad?
