The current pope is part of the re=packaging of Christianity, and it is bad news because the Catholic Church had been a bastion of tradition for a couple of thousand years. Even when activists wrested control fifty years ago, the popes themselves (for the most part) clung to tradition: No abortion, divorce, homosexuality, female clergy - all clearly laid out in Scripture.
Red Frankie is doing his damnedest to change that in his last few years before his judgment.
Dems think that if they paint a cnadidate as a Christian, it will fool us and sucker people in to vote for him.
They KNOW Christian values are important and a candidate who professes Christianity stands a far better chance with mainstream America, much as they hate it and us.
Not buying it.
“Christians should respond to Buttigieg the way they are commanded: With Love.
This one is easy. Chastising these homosexuals IS love. Leaving them or encouraging them to rot in their sin IS hate. It’s why it was always nonsensical to claim that parents who indulge homosexuality in their children, do it out of love. That behavior is at best abandonment.
Ultimately, the Religious Left fails because it replaces the power of God with the all-powerful state. The two cannot coexist.
Trends change. Fashions change. Current wisdom changes.
God does not change. Nor does His word.
"In what political climate could a major contender for the Democratic Presidential Nomination be a 37-year-old mayor from a town in Indiana?"South Bend is NOT some typical Indiana town. It is a city. It is not some farm crossroads from Hoosiers. It is home to Notre Dame, research and pharma companies, and a bumper crop of liberal transplants. It is a typical ultra-liberal college enclave. It no more representative of Indiana and the Heartland than Manhattan, New York City.
So the author of this article is "surprised" that a "married" queer channeling Pee Wee Herman was elected in one of the most liberal cities in Indiana? The author is a liar to try pass Buttgag off as some good ol' down home Hoosier.
Mayor Petes total lack of character was evident by his 180 on Pence, after complaints by the Leftist fringe in regards to a semi-nice comment about Pence. That point is hugh and series and should be exploited to the Nth degree.
The dude is seriously deluded.
We already have a “progressive” church. It’s called the Unitarian Universalist church...
How can someone with a name like that be taken seriously?
“Rich tradition of progressive Christianity”....
That is what followers of the word of God call apostasy. Homosexuality was condemned under the law of the Patriarchs, the law of Moses, and currently under the law of Christ. I don’t hate homosexuals, but I will not sit idly by and pretend the are living in accordance with scripture.
If you want to know where these people are coming from just read the book of Jude.
Yet, Buttigieg demands that evangelical Christians evolve their understanding of holy Scripture. The biblically orthodox interpretation of sexuality represents an antiquated morality from a culturally dated book. In Buttigiegs view, we ought to keep the universal principles but jettison the culturally and socially inconvenient passages that do not square with our modern, moral ideology. Christians must, in short, redefine biblical sexuality in unbiblical terms.<cut>
Powers applies Buttigiegs formula to the evangelical conviction regarding abortion. According to Powers, Jesus never mentioned abortion at all, thereby making it a dubious issue for Christians to espouse. This line of reasoning applies to other issues like sexual orientation, gender identity, and the entire spectrum of LGBTQ rights.
See what they do here?
Because as well all know, nothing screams faith, discernment, morality, Christianity, and love of God quite like mixing bodily fluids and feces .How Christ like.
Every successful Democrat president must pretend to be a Christian.
It is interesting, is it not, that almost all of the most radical pro-abortion people are homosexuals.
No such thing as “Progressive” Christianity. You either are a Christian, or you worship the world and sodomy.
