I'm pretty sure the "R" in AARP doesn't stand for "Religion" 😊

The video is intended to be a very un-funny mockery that ridicules hypocritical pseudo-christians who are much more republican than christian - that's the point - those pseudo-christians are liars, frauds and charlatans - just like trump - that's why they like him so much...

Birds of a feather act like bigoted trash together...

 

Even sadder that AARP is allowing this to be promoted. I guess they don't care if Christians do not join or promote AARP.

AARP is religion neutral - like this nation's government that is constitutionally obligated to maintain the wall of separation between church and state - AARP does not favor any single religion, or disfavor any religion...

I don't see this as brilliant or funny ....that's great.  I for one appreciate your opinion, though I vehemently disagree.  God has a sense of humor.....and look who I'm telling.....a part-time comedian.

 

Do you think God appreciates those attacking minorities?  Immigrants? Or complaints about "germs" or "trash" at the border?  What about those who embrace a liar, a bigot and adulterer.  Is God cool with that?  I couldn't find a reference in the bible.

 

Where does God draw the line?  Based on recent posts on this forum, it's wherever "a believer" decides on any given particular day.  My favorite passage is this, from Matthew, 7 15-20

 

You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits.Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

 

It weeds out the hypocrites and frauds.  I don't see anyone "well-served" by ignoring the hypocrisy and sweeping it under the rug.  Do you?

Exposing a 'faux Christian" is not "mocking Christianity".  Exposing hypocrisy among certain Christians or anyone else is not "mocking Christianity".  Those who expose hypocrisy haven't necessarily "rejected" the "plan of Salvation".  AARP sticks to  Freedom of Speech and a person's right to believe or not believe what they want as individuals, although it seems that certain people here might want AARP to only accept people of a certain religious belief. I look upon God's grace, not his "punishing". I also believe in loving everyone and forgiving everyone, not just Christians.

Fortunately, Jesus would never have considered being a republican.

Here's what a republican Jesus would have sounded like...

They aren't fooling the majority of Chrisians here and worldwide...

They aren't fooling people who are of another faith.

They aren't fooling agnostics.

They aren't fooling atheists.

They aren't fooling God.

They are only fooling themselves...
