On Tuesday, the American people were given the dubious treat of yet another debate among six of the remaining Democratic presidential candidates, during which Pete Buttigieg, a “married” homosexual and late-term abortion advocate who claims to be a Christian, declared that “God does not belong to a political party.”
The Iowa debate, hosted by CNN and The Des Moines Register, featured Buttigieg, former Vice President Joe Biden, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, businessman Tom Steyer, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Buttigieg’s comments came when asked how he would stand up to Trump if he secured the Democratic nomination.
“If a guy like Donald Trump keeps trying to use religion to somehow recruit Christianity into the GOP, I will be standing there not afraid to talk about a different way to answer the call of faith and insist that God does not belong to a political party,” Buttigieg said.
In all fairness to Buttigieg, it is accurate at face value to state that God does not “belong” to a secular political party. God does not “belong” to any institution forged by His own creatures.
That said, the difference between Christians who seek to mold their political beliefs and actions according to their biblical convictions and those who attempt to mold their god to match their political beliefs is quite clear. Conservatives aren’t the ones who have to contort Scripture to force it to support homosexuality, transgenderism, abortion, and more. We are able to simply allow God’s Word to speak for itself, and we do.
Later on in the debate, Steyer contended that any Democrat who challenges Trump will only be able to win on the economy front and that, with just three years under his belt at a global consulting firm.
After quickly changing the topic from his lack of experience in economic issues, Buttigieg explained why he believes his experience as mayor, his military service, and his faith makes him the man to take down Trump:
When, at the beginning of the decade, I took office, [South Bend, Indiana was] described as a dying city. I’m ready to take on Donald Trump because, when he gets to the tough talk and the chest-thumping, he’ll have to stand next to an American war veteran and explain how he pretended bone spurs made him ineligible to serve.
If a guy like Donald Trump keeps trying to use religion to somehow recruit Christianity into the GOP, I will be standing there not afraid to talk about a different way to answer the call of faith and insist that God does not belong to a political party. I am ready to take on this president on everything.
Buttigieg, an Episcopalian, clearly has a seared conscience if he can reconcile his various anti-Scriptural stances with his supposed faith.
Back in September, his “brother-in-law,” (the brother of his “husband,” Chasten) called Buttigieg “a modern-day pharisee” for his support of late-term abortion.
“I feel a sense of responsibility and stewardship of my faith to stand up and say something, to say, ‘No, that’s not true,’” Pastor Rhyan Glezman said, explaining his opposition to his “brother-in-law” to the Washington Examiner. “God places a very high value on all human life. Everyone is created fearfully and wonderfully in the image of God with intrinsic value. That doesn’t start at the first breath, it starts when we enter our mother’s womb.”
Glezman argued that Buttigieg has “manipulated” and “weaponized” the Word of God for his own political gain, and is “making up their own rules and regulations and, basically, if we don’t celebrate and endorse their interpretation of Scripture, our religion is fallible.”
Amen!! God will not be mocked. Woe to pharisees like Buttigieg who contort His holy Word to fashion a pitiful “god” of their own making.
