Mayor Pete Attacks Evangelical Trump Supporters at CNN Town Hall

Todd Starnes · Feb. 20, 2020

Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the gay Democrat running for the White House, has earned a reputation on the campaign trail for telling people to judge not while he judges.

“Saint” Buttigieg has mastered the art of weaponizing his left-wing religious beliefs as well as his same-sex marriage (which he never fails to mention on the campaign trail).

On Tuesday, Buttigieg was at it again — attacking Evangelical Trump supporters, this time at a CNN town-hall meeting.

“Do you think that it’s impossible to be a Christian and support Trump?” CNN anchor Erin Burnett asked.

“I’m not going to tell other Christians how to be Christian,” Buttigieg responded, “but I will say I cannot find any compatibility between the way this president conducts himself and anything I find in Scripture.”

Last year, Saint Buttigieg blasted Christian Trump supporters over the president’s border policies.

“For a party that associates itself with Christianity to say that it is ok, to suggest that God would smile on the division of families at the hands of federal agents, that God would condone putting children in cages, has lost all claim to ever use religious language again,” the mayor said last June.

And in February he was back at it again:

If you belong to a faith tradition that tells you that so much depends on how we make ourselves useful to those who are marginalized and oppressed, that so much depends on how we work to comfort the afflicted, and that so much depends on seeking leaders who walk in the way of humility and decency, I can’t imagine that requires you to be anywhere near this president or what the Republican party has become.

The truth is President Trump’s political policies are more in line with the teachings of Christ than Buttigieg’s policies.

The president’s border policies are designed to keep families safe — to protect small children from danger. Mayor Pete wants to flood American neighborhoods with dangerous criminal illegal aliens.

President Trump has implemented policies to protect religious liberty so that people of faith will not be punished for following the teachings of Christ. Mayor Pete, on the other hand, wants to destroy religious liberty and force Christians to pledge allegiance to a radical LGBT agenda.

The president has also taken bold steps to protect the unborn from Planned Parenthood abortion mills. Mayor Pete, on the other hand, refuses to condemn infanticide.

Mayor Pete told CNN’s town-hall gathering that God is apolitical. I do not presume to speak for the Almighty, but I sincerely doubt He would endorse a political party that wants to legalize the killing of newborn babies.
