Pete Buttigieg Is Inspiring Us To Come Out Again
wbur.org ^ | 5/8/19 | Robert C. Bordone

Posted on 05/08/2019 5:16:58 AM PDT by madprof98

Apart from the historic nature of Mayor Pete’s candidacy, however, his candidness about being both openly gay and openly Christian has stirred an awakening for many similarly situated LGBTQ+ Christian Americans, prompting us to finally and fully “come out,” claiming both our sexual identity and our religious faith in all settings, not just selectively or advisedly. I count myself among the newly emboldened.

Like Mayor Pete, I was a bit of a late bloomer, coming out at the age of 30. Many factors held me back, including the official teaching of my Catholic faith, perceived family expectations and my own fears that being gay would deprive me of a host of professional and personal aspirations. Like Mayor Pete, I did all I could do to deny my reality and make dating women work.

In the intervening years since coming out, I have reconciled my faith with my sexuality and been fortunate enough to find a local Catholic community that supports me fully for who I am, as someone who, in the words of Psalm 139, is “fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Because I worship in a community with many openly LGBTQ+ persons I know many LGBTQ+ persons of faith. That Mayor Pete is an openly gay Christian, then, does not strike me as extraordinary. For many less familiar with LGBTQ+ persons of faith, though, a LGBTQ+ Christian is still viewed as an oxymoron, fundamentally incompatible and problematic.

The author is a Harvard law school prof who adopts every liberal position in the book. The forum here is NPR in Boston. I think this piece illustrates very well why our wealthy elites and their media allies are pushing Mayor Pete's candidacy so hard: they are going to teach any practicing Christians who remain in the US that we are wrong, wrong, wrong--and that we had best do as our betters tell us to do: BAKE THE CAKE!

Well...that’s the whole point now isn’t it? :)

You don’t have to be a Christian.

That’s why we live in America :)

But you CANNOT be a Christian and practice homosexuality.

Well, you CAN be a Christian. You’ll just be rotten at it :)

The Bible and the Constitution are dead - long live both!!

“Jumped the gerbil”. That’s a good one in regard to over-hyped gays. Thanks for the laugh.

Homosexuality is the sharp tip of Satan’s spear.

Where it penetrates, great damage follows.

Satan, the great deceiver, has deceived a great many with the direct help of pubic school teachers, college prof’s, media pundits, politicians, entertainers and social media leaders.

Be not deceived.

I knew two lesbians who were part of a gay church. She delighted one afternoon in telling me how they pranced about the altar, some carrying each other, and kissing passionately. She thought it was the most wonderful religious experience of her lifetime.

These people are sexual obsessives. It has nothing to do with in-born traits.

Oh BS - it shows how shallow and vapid a man he is along with this inspid need to define yourself by your sexual wants and call yourself enlightened.

These people are lowlife midwits parading as intelligentsia and that includes our religious leaders.

Do not follow them.

I’ve come to understand that Mayor Pete Butt-plug’s sole reason for existing is to goad Donald Trump into saying or tweeting something that could be interpreted as being “homo-phobic” and then used to rile up gay voters for the next election. Unfortunately for the Democrats many gay people actually like having a prosperous economy and sane foreign policy.

Too bad Petey, our president is too smart for that. Trump is a master at provoking his opponents into saying and doing things that reveal their true intent and weakness. It obviously drives the Left crazy that they don’t have that ability.

Why elect a sodomite?

He would be too morally superior, would not enforce laws he did not “like.” and would bring in heavy ideologically based regulation of business, firearms etc. The Constitution and our government institutions would be further damaged by these lefty prigs.

Obama already has weaponized the DOJ, FBI, CIA and the IRS against the American people. We need a president who will sort it out and end this weaponization by liberal fascism. That President is Donald trump, who has been a continuing victim of these leftist ba$tards.

No way ANYONE should vote for this a$$wipe , code named Butterkeg.

None of these so-called LGBT “Christians” ever discuss the holy nature of God. They focus exclusively on His love, rarely if ever quote scripture—taking it out of context when they do—and attack other Christians for being judgmental. To me, this is the same path the Anti-Christ will take, i.e. focusing only on one aspect of God and distorting scripture to take on the appearance of godliness. Keep in mind that Satan tried to use scripture—out of context—to tempt Christ.

What are believing Christians supposed to do about unrepentant LGBT “Christians?”

1 Corinthians 5:11
“But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.”
