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.

The candidacy of Pete Buttigieg demands our attention. Why? Not so much because of his candidacy as an individual but the ideas he espouses. He attempts to radically shift the understanding of Christianity away from its historic and biblical position.

Trends change. Fashions change. Current wisdom changes.

God does not change. Nor does His word.

article:
"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 Pete’s’ 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.

Yet, Buttigieg did indeed take direct aim at Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence. Buttigieg told the crowd, “I wish that the Mike Pence’s of the world would understand… that if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”

The dude is seriously deluded.

We already have a “progressive” church. It’s called the Unitarian Universalist church...

So OK. Let's see. According to this literal ass clown the only way to save Christianity going forward is to strip it of all of its meaning and purpose. Thus making it a parody of its former self. This guy is one sick little monkey. And gee, what a surprise. His daddy was a Marxist college professor. Whoda saw that coming?

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 Buttigieg’s 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 Buttigieg’s 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.
