The guy that has been going around saying that God doesn’t belong to a political party is lecturing Christians that support Trump.
It’s an interesting strategy.
Over the weekend, Democratic presidential hopeful, Pete Buttigieg, insisted that God does not belong to a particular political party.
In a CNN town hall event in Las Vegas, Buttigieg targeted Christian Trump supporters implying that they were not holding to the tenets of their faith because of the way they choose to vote.
He couched his words by insisting that he wasn’t going to “tell other Christians how to be Christians,” but then castigated them for supporting Trump.
BURNETT: To the point you talked about God not belonging to any kind of a political party, at the last CNN town hall, you said, if your faith calls upon you to help the marginalized, those who are afflicted, to comfort people, to strive for humility and decency as the Christian faith does, and then, I quote you, “Then, I just can’t imagine that that requires of you that you be anywhere near this President.” Do you think it is impossible to be a Christian and support President Trump?
BUTTIGIEG: Well, I’m not going to tell other Christians how to be Christians, but I will say: I cannot find any compatibility between the way this president conducts himself and anything I find in scripture. Now I guess that’s my interpretation, but I think that’s a lot of people’s interpretation, and that interpretation deserves a voice.

Those who do not ascribe to Buttigieg’s leftist interpretation of Christianity would say that there aspects of Mayor Pete’s behavior and his political positions that are incompatible with scripture — such as late-term abortion, open borders, wealth redistribution, statism, divisive racialization of everything, and, quite frankly, being married to another dude.
Do those interpretations of scripture also deserve a voice, Pete? I bet he’d say no.
Mayor Pete doesn’t like President Trump’s pugilistic style or what he considers questionable morality. What if — and hear me out — what if we’re looking for a PRESIDENT and not a moral leader.
After all, to Christians, we’ve already had the greatest moral teacher of all time — Jesus. Frankly, he wasn’t always the Sweet, Gentle Jesus that he has been portrayed as; he braided a whip and kicked people out of the Temple, he called a woman a dog, he called out another woman for her sexual history, and he insulted the Pharisees by calling them names like “whitewashed tombs.”

If the choice comes down to Trump who tweets things that sometimes make me cringe and supercilious Mayor Pete who looks down his nose at Christians that just aren’t the right kind of Christian — I’ll take the adulterous bully who supports religious freedom, capitalism, the nation of Israel, and life in the womb, thanks.
I don’t think I’m alone.
I know at the very least, ClashDaily’s Big Dawg agrees with me. After all, he literally wrote the book on that.
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
