South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is obsessed with “stealing” religion away from the Republican Party, and he’s getting away with it.
“Mayor Pete,” as people who prefer not to type out his name every time he is mentioned like to call him, began his campaign for the Democratic Party’s presidential nod from a surprisingly centrist space. He went as far as to say that he had no problem eating Chick-fil-A sandwiches, which is a cardinal sin for the modern left. This schtick lasted about a week before the Indiana mayor realized the voter base that he was dealing with — this centrist crap wasn’t going to cut it in 2019, so he had to adjust.
Now, Buttigieg is mirroring the same progressivism that all of his other Democratic rivals are — appearing just slightly less radical than Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. He does, however, have a monopoly on one of the left’s most annoying tendencies: trying to convince us that Christianity is actually about being a good liberal.
More recently, Mayor Pete tried to use his biblical credentials (he says he’s a Christian — that’s his credential) to justify the virtue of murdering an unborn child. Now, the Bible is actually shockingly clear about the status of unborn children — but that isn’t stopping the man from conjuring up blatant lies about the topic.
