There is an old adage that “A squeaking wheel gets the most grease”.
Well, here’s a story about a big squeaker
CBSNews.com reports that
Potential 2020 Democratic hopeful Pete Buttigieg, the openly gay mayor of South Bend, Indiana, delivered a pointed message for Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday, telling him to raise his objections with the gay community with God.
Buttigieg, in a speech at LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch in Washington, D.C., referenced the vice president’s less-than-welcoming attitude toward members of the LGBTQ community when discussing his marriage to his husband Chasten. He called marriage equality a moral issue, saying his marriage of two years has made him a “better human being.”
“My marriage to Chasten has made me a better man and yes, Mr. Vice President, it has moved me closer to God,” said Buttigieg, a devout Episcopalian.
“I can tell you, that if me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade,” he added, to a room full of loud cheers. “And that’s the thing I wish the Mike Pence’s of the world could understand, that if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”
Pence, a conservative Christian, has opposed same-sex marriage throughout his political career. He received harsh criticism from social activists for pursuing anti-LGBTQ policies during his time as governor of Indiana.
During his remarks Sunday, Buttigieg detailed how so much has changed for the gay community in his young lifetime. He acknowledged the historic implications of his candidacy and what it could mean for the LGBTQ community at large, including the possibility of the very first same-sex couple in the White House.
“You could either be openly gay or run for office, but not both,” Buttigieg recalled of his early days in politics. But he said he was uncomfortable with the idea of coming to terms with his sexuality as a young man, saying he “would have done anything to not be gay, when I started to half way realize what it meant that I felt the way I did,” comparing it to a war inside himself.
“If you had offered me a pill to make me straight, I would have swallowed it before I could get a sip of water,” he said.
Buttigieg said he ultimately decided to come out as gay after his seven-month deployment to Afghanistan in 2014, which he said forced him “to realize that you only get one life.” He said he finally addressed his sexuality during his reelection campaign as mayor in 2015, when Pence was governor. He said his coming out wasn’t for political purposes, but for the simple reason of wanting to start dating.
The 37-year-old credited a dating app for meeting his future spouse.
“I looked through this little screen on my phone and I saw this smile. This guy and I clicked the button the right because I had to meet him. And one of the best things about this past couple of months is watching America meet him too and fall for Chasten, just like I did,” he explained, crediting Chasten with helping him get through some of the tougher times in his life, including the loss of his father.
In previewing his plans for a potential presidency, the mayor said he would push for a Federal Equality Act immediately upon entering office.
Mayor Buttigieg must be desperate for recognition.
Why else would he attack a sitting Vice President who openly practices the faith of 75% of Americans?
Now, I realize that Buttigieg also proclaims to be a Christian.
However, regardless of how he feels about himself, homosexuality is listed as a sin in the Bible, along with adultery, theft, etc.
Buttigieg, like other Modern American Liberals, seeks to rewrite the Bible in order to feel comfortable about his own sin.
We are all sinners, saved by God’s Grace.
Vice-President Mike Pence’s Christianity makes him a common target of the Modern American Liberals in the Democratic Party.
Basically, because within the pages of the Bible, you will not find a lot of things which the Modern Democratic Party stands for.
And, the Traditional American Faith and Values which we were taught as children, usually came from the Family Bible found on a shelf or table in the homes of families from coast to coast.
However, with the last few generations,, as public education has changed into public indoctrination, children have been taught that traditional American views on faith and family are narrow-minded and wrong.
Karl Marx said basically the same thing when he opined that
“Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people”.
With the shift in the Democratic Party from Classic American Liberalism to the embracing of Marxist Theory under the misnomer “Democratic Socialism” the Democrats have moved away from Traditional American Faith and Values toward the worship of “the State” and the practice of relative morality and situational ethics.
This movement, led by “the smartest people in the room”, has produced an arrogance among the Democrats, reinforced by Democrat-heavy polling, to where they believe that their values are held by the majority of American Voters.
This same belief led to Mayor Buttigieg’s attacking of Vice-President Pence.
And, with the Mayor being a potential Dark Horse Candidate, what did he have to lose?
As was proven in 2016, wild-eyed “Democratic Socialists” are not going to get the Heartland’s votes, anyway.
And, considering the way all of them are currently behaving, they are not going to receive those votes in 2020, either.
