Remind me, which job is he running for — President, or preacher at some ‘woke’ activist leftist church?
Petey the Prophet is at it again.
Hot on the heels of sermonizing on Jake Tapper’s show, he’s explaining the Biblical Basis for believing in … late-term Abortion.
No, really — he’s serious.
Here he is, in his own words:
In an interview with “The Breakfast Club”, Buttigieg begins by painting Republicans as holding Pro-life priorities specifically (and only) because of a particularly narrow interpretation of scripture — one with which he obviously disagrees. He’s wrong, but that’s his claim.
‘Then again, there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath, and so even that is something that we can interpret differently.’
Then he goes on to explain how he is pro-life and he thinks most Americans agree with him.
It’s a clever attempt at a work-around against a question of conscience.
Where do we start?
We could begin by pointing to Prophet Petey that there are many NON-Religious people who hold the pro-life position for much the same reasons that Christians hold them. For philosophical, rather than what he would portray as fideistic reasons.
From an essay written by an atheist:
Personally, my pro-life beliefs belong to the discoveries in science. While I am sympathetic to women’s rights and would even consider myself a Feminist as would any man who believes in gender equality, the right to life outweighs our personal discomforts. I will hesitantly concede that had I been born 10 years earlier I most likely would have considered myself pro-choice based upon the absence of scientific evidence within the pro-life movement at the time. More so, if science had proven that life began at birth I would have had no foundation for an anti-abortion belief. Thankfully for the pro-life movement, science has reemphasized the movement’s argument that abortion takes the life of an unborn child. Today, the movement has realized that science is much more likely to reach an audience which is increasingly looking for demonstrable evidence from which to base their position on social issues; not just the church’s suggestion.
But look at what Buttigieg is claiming.
Some verses equate life with breath.
Uh, yeah. In the sense that when you STOP breathing, you’re in some real trouble. But does that mean that’s when life begins?
The simplest BIBLICAL response to that idea is found in the story of Jesus own nativity, in the words immediately before a famous passage of scripture commonly called the Magnificat.
9 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a town in Judah, 40 and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, 42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be[g] a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” — Luke 1
In that story, neither Jesus nor John had yet been born. Elizabeth was in her third trimester, (see verse 36) which means Mary was in her first.
Petey does an awful lot of preaching for someone who isn’t a theologian.
He’s going to have to choose what job he really wants in life. Because at this point, he seems pretty confused on the issue. (And a whole lot of others.)
Zuby’s reaction was much simpler:
Trump says mean things on Twitter sometimes…
Democratic presidential hopefuls try to justify third trimester abortions by citing The Bible… ?
If you think the former is worse than the latter, then we are from different planets. https://t.co/UGRFMCcknQ
