Pete Buttigieg: "God Has A Sense Of Humor"

Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, apparently leading Bernie Sanders and all the other candidates going into the New Hampshire primary tomorrow night, is seizing the moment.

CNN gave Pete and his "husband" the opportunity to advocate, explain and promote their homosexual lifestyle this last week in Iowa.

In his appeal to the public, Pete explained that "God must have a sense of humor" about his homosexuality.

Be informed.

The activist press.

Certainly, the press has picked the winners and losers, at least in their mind, for the 2020 presidential election--and they'll do almost anything to make their dream come true.

They have also decided what America should believe---about most everything. Including marriage and human sexuality.

The morning following last week's Iowa primary, Pete Buttigieg's "husband" Chasten, tweeted out a photo of Pete putting his head on Chasten's shoulder.

In the tweet, Chasten said, "I couldn't do this without you by my side too, P. in this together, and I am so proud of you."

During the Iowa debate, candidate Buttigieg had pointed out "husband" Chasten Buttigieg sitting in the audience, doing so while he was talking about what he calls the "Cause for LGBTQ Equality."

LGBTQ movement and the Bible.

CNN's Chris Cuomo purposefully opened the door and set the table for Buttigieg to explain to America how normal and blessed his "marriage" to Chasten is, and how God thinks it's funny.

Cuomo said to Pete, "You once said being gay could be a death sentence for your career---now we see you at the top of the Iowa Caucuses."

Cuomo continued telling the audience we now see Iowa as a "validation" Pete's sexual behavior.

Pete, of course, agrees, stepping through the open door---explaining to all,
"There was a time when I would have done anything not to be gay," but now, at this point, "reality has become certain and that impact has become a positive thing"---"Talk about God having a sense of humor."

"All I can say," Pete says, "it gets better"--- borrowing a phrase from Seattle's own Dan Savage.

Dan Savage is well known for his blaspheming the Bible and the God who gave it to us.

Back in 2012, the National High School Journalist Conference was held in Seattle. More than 3000 high school teenagers attended. The organization invited Dan Savage to be the keynote speaker. Savage is well known for pioneering the "It Gets Better" movement. And his blasphemy of the Bible. and God.

I wrote about it in this column at the time.

Within minutes into his speech, Savage began his tirade against the Bible, God and the people who believe in both. As some students began to walk out, he swore at them.

Savage went on the attack calling what the Bible says about homosexuality "bull sh__." He told the teens, "We can learn to ignore what the Bible says about gay people" ---then his attacks and his language went downhill, getting worse and worse.

Adult sponsors and many of the teenagers described it as "hostile." Finally, Savage announced that "The Bible guys in the hall can come back now because I'm done beating up the Bible."

But Savage, who has now created a series for Disney about the "difficulties of being gay," and his cohorts in the homosexual advocacy community have never stopped "beating up the Bible." Nor will they, because the Bible offers forgiveness and restoration, not affirmation of their behavior.

The various ways in which they "beat up the Bible."

Pete's approach is apparently different than that of Savage, however, it was Savage's phrase that came to Pete's mind when asked on live television.

Last year, CNN began promoting Pete in earnest with this headline: "Pete Buttigieg, a gay Christian, Is Driving The Religious Right Nuts."

They said, "The only Democrat talking at length about his faith in the 2020 primary also happens to be the only gay candidate in the race."

CNN noted,
"Combining homosexuality and Christianity might be the most natural thing in the world for Buttigieg and millions of gay Americans, but it is an iconoclastic development in American politics, where generalizations about religious freedom have in recent years been used to fight advances in LGBTQ rights."

The far-Left network then published several tweets from Franklin Graham quoting him...
"God doesn't have a political party, But God does have commandments, laws and standards. He gives us to live by. God doesn't change. His Word is the same yesterday, today and forever"...Mayor Buttigieg says he's a gay Christian. As a Christian I believe the Bible, which defines homosexuality as sin, something to be repented of, not flaunted, praised or politicized..."

They also quoted Graham tweeting, "The core of the Christian faith is believing and following Jesus Christ, who God sent to be the Savior of the world---to save us from sin, to save us from hell, to save us from eternal damnation."

CNN then pivots in their article and begins an attack on biblical Christians that voted for Trump, calling Graham's position "ironic" and "hypocritical" given the support for Trump.

They quote Buttigieg who also includes a pretty strong poke at Vice President Pence for his biblical Christianity and beliefs.

CNN suggests that in an attempt for the biblical Christians to cover themselves for their transgressions of voting for Trump, they point to Trump's appointment of conservative Supreme Court Justices which we biblical Christians hope will challenge both abortion and gay "marriage" in the courts.

So Pete will continue to campaign, and to bend Scriptures to support and affirm his so-called "same-sex marriage" and how it has brought "him closer to God." And the media will continue to promote him because he is the personification of what the media sees as "progress."

We'll see what happens politically to Pete in New Hampshire tomorrow. But I can, with certainty assure you the spiritual deception will continue until there is personal recognition of sin followed by repentance and acceptance of Jesus Christ---who is the Word made flesh, crucified and resurrected from the dead.

As I write this, I'm reminded of Mark's New Testament account of the Resurrection in Mark 15: 29-32 in which he says, in part,
"And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads and saying, Aha! You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself, and come down from the cross!"

And "Likewise the chief priests also, mocking among themselves with the scribes, said, 'He saved others; Himself He cannot save'."

The Scribes, the chief priests and the far Left are all wrong. God's Word is eternal and Christ has risen.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Faithful. Be Prayerful.
