Pete Buttigieg is becoming the newest darling of progressives.
He’s gaining momentum by running as a homosexual mayor.
But what he said about Christianity and Christians in America is truly jaw dropping.
Buttigieg has quickly become the darling of the media.
He’s trailing only Sanders and Biden according to some polls, and is among the leading pack in others.
Buttigieg is openly gay and Episcopalian.
And he’s trying to make sure Christianity does not belong to the “right wing.”
In an interview with the liberal social media organization “Now This News,” Buttigieg said he believes Scripture leads “us in a very progressive direction.”
He’s trying to rebrand Christianity in his image and putting a leftist spin on Jesus’ message.
“I don’t think religion belongs to one political party. When I go to church, the scripture I hear has to do with protecting the poor, and spending time with the prisoner, and healing the sick, and caring for the stranger which to me is another word for immigrant. It has a very clear set of moral and policy implications none of which are things I would associate with the right wing.”
The left has fallen in love with Buttigieg because they feel he can break through to non-traditional groups that maybe they can capture this election cycle.
And they can put a checkmark on what they’re looking for:
He’s gay, Christian, a veteran, and, as some say, the second coming of Obama.
Tucker Carlson couldn’t help but point out the media’s desire to “consume [Buttigieg] like a hearty stew” because of their weird fascination with the gay mayor from Indiana.
He also pointed out Beto O’Rourke must feel cheated on because it was he who was the media darling not too long ago who was their Obama reincarnate.
The fact of the matter is Christians are more than capable of realizing which party more accurately reflects their viewpoint in the world of politics.
We know what Scripture tells us, and it isn’t to be a radical left-leaning progressive.
