Skip to comments.Pete Buttigieg: Imposing Christianity on People is Wrong, Imposing Abortion on Babies is OK

Pete Buttigieg does not want pro-life Christians to impose their religious beliefs on others when it comes to protecting the unborn, but he would push his own pro-abortion beliefs on Americans if elected president.
The pro-abortion Democrat and South Bend, Indiana mayor recently spoke to an Orange City, Iowa crowd about why he, a self-described Christian, supports abortion on demand, according to the Washington Examiner.
Buttigieg reportedly touted his faith while talking about welcoming immigrants and refugees, expanding food stamps, and helping the poor, referring to various scripture references to support his position.
When asked about abortion, however, he defended the so-called freedom to abort an unborn baby for any reason up to birth.
According to the report:
Buttigieg responded by pointing to biblical passages that suggest life doesnt begin until birth. His argument was that the Bible is ambiguous on the morality of abortion. Its a clever argument, but it doesnt really hold water in conservative, Christian places such as Orange City.
My understanding of my faith should never be imposed on anyone else, Buttigieg said. This contradicts all the times Buttigieg uses his faith to call for other laws, including minimum wage hikes and gun control. Buttigieg is willing to restrict the right to bear arms because his faith compels him to pursue a world with no weapons. So, clearly, he is willing to impose his understanding of his faith on the rest of the country in some cases.
Buttigieg repeatedly has insisted that he can be a Christian and support abortion on demand. Speaking with Rolling Stone in November, he tried to justify his stance by claiming the Bible is inconsistent on the issue and it associates the beginning of life with breath.
Interestingly, abortionist and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell used a very similar biblical argument to defend infanticide in 2015.
Buttigieg is no moderate on abortion. As mayor of South Bend, he tried to stop a pregnancy resource center from opening down the street from an abortion facility. Then, in August, he celebrated when an abortion chain that amassed dozens of health and safety violations opened a new location there.
He also would force taxpayers to fund abortions by working to end the Hyde Amendment.
When asked about aborting unborn babies in the third trimester, Buttigieg said he thinks it should be legal and unrestricted. He told Fox News Chris Wallace, I trust women to draw the line.
Recently, he also said he would deregulate dangerous abortion drugs and allow them to be sold over the counter.
Well, he and his “wife” will never have to worry about making a decision on an abortion, so I guess that gives him license to pontificate to the rest of us on it.
Imposing faggotry is wrong too...
Butti-judge does not care about babies since they can’t vote.
Does he ever quote Jesus’ words, “Go, and sin no more”?
So sad the twisted logic this man tries to use to con us into voting for him.
Gods Wrath on Unrighteousness
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [d]suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is [e]manifest [f]in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and [g]Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like [h]corruptible manand birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their [i]women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the [j]men, leaving the natural use of the [k]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.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, [l]sexual immorality, wickedness, [m]covetousness, [n]maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 [o]undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, [p]unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
I had a liberal boss who talked about Christians imposing their views on others. I said, “Shall I show you the involuntary deductions from my paycheck?”
I can remember a joke I was once told that is appropriate to your post. “Did you hear about the homosexuals that got married? They could not decide on who was going to be the wife.” There you have it, never thought it would come true.
He’s just another vile worshipper of the abortion god, Molech. Devil worship at its finest.
The communist party is full of these evil SOBs.
“Well, he and his wife will never have to worry.....”
Who said he’s the husband?
If imposing Christian morals is wrong, then so is imposing secular morals on people.
You can’t say one set of morals is fine but another is verboten. Because any one set of morals inherently discriminates against all others that are different.
This is where their idiot logic falls apart. Laws are always based on morals. The question is are they going to be yours, or someone elses.
Historically this country’s laws and foundation are Christian. They work far better than anyone elses. Society via people who hate them has sure done their best to whittle them down.
I don’t know who deserves a righteous bolt of lighting more — “Twisting the Bible” Buttigieg or “I’m Catholic, I don’t hate anyone” Pelosi
The guy is one sick puppy.
How do you impose Christianity? By speaking?
You cant impose Christianity.
Thats the difference.
Geez. I cant believe how hypocritical he is ok with appearing.
Can’t wait til defeat is imposed upon him and he shuts the hell up.
The entire experience of the homosexual running for President is saddening. It does spell CURTAINS for the Democrat party. If it has ANY hope of getting ANYWHERE in the future it will have to make some basic changes.
There ARE plenty of conservative people in the Democrat party. But with the presentation of a homosexual candidate and his "wife" I think that the GOP will be providing presidents and congressmen for a LONG time to come.
I'm with you.
