Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg attacked President Donald Trump's Christian supporters during his town hall with CNN on Tuesday. According to Mayor Pete, he can't seem to understand how Christians support President Trump.
"To the point, you've talked about God not belonging to any kind of political party," CNN's Erin Burnette started. "At the last CNN town hall you said if your faith calls upon you to help the marginalized, those who are afflicted, to comfort people, to strive for humility and decency, as the Christian faith does, and I quote, 'Then I just can't imagine that that requires of you be anywhere near this president.' Do you think it is impossible to be a Christian and support President Trump?"
"Well, I'm not going to tell other Christians how to be Christians," Buttigieg replied. "But I will say, I cannot find any compatibility between the way this president conducts himself and anything that I find in scripture. Now I guess that's my interpretation but I think that's a lot of people's interpretation and that interpretation deserves a voice."
One of the most irritating things about Buttigieg is his ability to pander and use his Christian faith to do it. He cherry-picks what he believes depending on when it's convenient for him.
He plays the Christian card yet Romans 1:24-27 talks explicitly about homosexuality:
Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
He plays the Christian card but supports abortion even though babies are continually mentioned as a reward in the Bible, as evidenced is Psalm 127:3-5:
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
He plays the Christian card but supports illegal aliens, even though the Bible says those in authority positions are appointed by Him. Rules were established and resisting those rules is resisting God, as described in Romans 13:1-7
Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.
We could go on and on and on. Try again, Pete.
