Time to roll out some modified Chevy ad slogans…
Chevy. Like a Rock Hudson.
Chevy Runs Deep. (needs no further comment)
See Your Friend’s Hairy A, In Your New Chevrolet
Chevrolet. An American Devolution.
The Fartbeat of America
Chevy Olympic ads feature gay couple
One ad, called “The New Us,” for the Chevrolet Traverse crossover SUV, shows quick shots of many different families, including a gay male couple with a son and a daughter. “While what it means to be a family hasn’t changed, what a family looks like has,” a voiceover states. “This is the new us.”
Another ad, an overall Chevrolet brand spot, features a pastiche of different images of America, including a shot of a gay couple getting married. “Like the old love, the new love starts with a kiss,” a voiceover states. “Like the old community, the new community still keeps us connected. … A whole new lineup for a whole new world.”
Chevy, a unit of General Motors Co. that is not an official sponsor, didn’t comment on the Russian laws specifically, instead saying in a statement that “these ads … are not intended as any political commentary.”
It might be the new you, Chevrolet, but it ain’t the new me. I know you’re just pandering to a specific market segment, but don’t go throwing that word “us” around. There’s very little that unites Americans anymore. To consider myself separate from the likes of you, well, it gives me great PRIDE. I love the fact that the only institution that is truly a diverse body, crossing racial, socio-economic and all other dividing lines is the church of Jesus Christ. True Christians reach out in love to those caught in sin. Chevrolet and General Motors see them as targets to be manipulated for profit. You might contract AIDS next week, but that’s OK because we’re offering 0% APR financing this week.
Tolerance is a far cry from love. God didn’t simply tolerate us, He sent His Son to be crushed for us. He didn’t send out His apostles with a plan of diversity and inclusion, welcoming our sinfulness into His kingdom. He invested everything most valuable to Him in order to transform us. Chevrolet is fine with deadly lifestyles if they can sell you a new car. And as for being a piece of Americana, I need say only one thing regarding Chevy and their “baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet” thing: NAFTA. I wonder if the Chinese get something like, “Gymnastics, cooked dogs, wonton soup and Chevrolet.”
This world is very much in the same condition as it was in Noah’s day, practically daring God to do something. Very soon, He will. In that day, Chevy won’t “run deep”, they’ll run scared.
6 Give back to her as she has given;
pay her back double for what she has done.
Pour her a double portion from her own cup.
7 Give her as much torment and grief
as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
In her heart she boasts,
‘I sit enthroned as queen.
I am not a widow;[c]
I will never mourn.’
8 Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,
for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. Revelation 18:6-8
Your merchants were the world’s important people.
By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.
24 In her was found the blood of prophets and of God’s holy people,
of all who have been slaughtered on the earth.” Revelation 18:23b-24
Amen! Come quickly Lord Jesus.
