From Fire and Brimstone and Hell with Buttigeig?

It isn’t a new tactic for Democratic politicians and now South Bend Mayor and Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is trying his hand at using religion to win votes. Before we get into the story covering Mayor Pete’s latest campaign efforts we should make this disclaimer: This story has nothing to do with religion or religious beliefs.

This story also has nothing to do with the sexual orientation of people or even Buttigieg either for that matter, but it does add a caveat to the story that can’t go unnoticed. What the story is about, however, is how Buttigieg is trying to gain ground among voters. In particular, black voters.

It almost defies logic, how this polarizing figure and rising star on the Democratic platform is doing so well in the race for the Democratic nomination. Now you are asking, if this young Democratic candidate is such a rising star and a polarizing figure, why would we be surprised that he continually polls near the top among the other Presidential hopefuls?

What makes Buttigieg’s polling numbers so impressive is that he is staying very competitive with the likes of front runners like Warren, Sanders, and Biden, while garnering historically low numbers when it comes to black voters. That is in almost zero percent historically low! In fact, it wouldn’t take much of a step forward (or any step forward really) among that voting segment for Buttigieg to become the man to beat. In theory, that would make him quite possibly the only legitimate threat the Democrats have to unseat President Trump.

The Mayor of South Bend is a smart guy. He polls well among the elderly, women, the young, and across most income brackets. He also has the distinct advantage of being one of the few Democratic candidates without any looming scandals or any ethically questionable behavior checkering his past. Being a smart guy, Buttigieg realizes this lacking or absent representation of black voters, and he has made some efforts correspondingly to address that problem.

Perhaps the young Mayor is too smart for his own good. The tactic Buttigieg is employing isn’t one we haven’t seen before. As our story reports, “Mayor Pete Buttigieg continues emphasizing that he is a Bible-believing Christian, attempting to earn the support of Democrats in South Carolina.” As our story also reminded us, “since he entered the race, Buttigieg has used social teachings in the Bible to shame Republicans and justify his positions on amnesty for illegal immigrants and abortion.”

No, it isn’t as if Buttigieg has shied away from using the Bible in his campaign, and he has at times referenced scripture throughout his candidacy. Now he is just turning up the volume and perhaps focusing more on connecting with the black community, through the Good Book, of course. Reporting on those efforts, our story said that “Buttigieg also spent two hours at a black church on Sunday with Pastor William Barber II, even carrying his own Bible to the service.” There were photo ops and everything.

This, though, might be where his smartness catches up with him. The fact is there has always been and there is today, a divide between the LGBTQ community and the church. What that means for our young candidate is a choice between two evils, so to speak.

Does he be careful not to lean too hard on the Bible, walking the line of peppering enough verses in here and there without proclaiming sainthood, and in doing so keep his current voting base happy? Or does he turn up the volume, get more photo ops and push harder for the black vote through religious channels, although doing so could put off a considerable base of his constituents.

If it is fire and brimstone and hell that Mayor Pete wants to preach, it could be hellfire he receives. Somewhere between preaching the Buttigieg plan and the Bible is where he’s been. Where he goes and where he ends up will most likely be determined by the voter’s perception of both.

  1. Just another lying liberal who claims one thing to win votes and supports the opposite. He has adopted Obama’s practices, in particular, and he similarly has no qualifications to be President.

  2. Pete It’s a disservice to believers in Christ when you go for believers vote while you practice Homosexuality which is Contrary to the word of God. You support Abortion . That is Murder & commandment #6 Thou Shalt Not Kill. If you say you’re a Believer your fruit will show it. I know if one is a new believer it might take time to adjust. But Don’t pretend to be a believer just to win votes. God will hold you accountable for your actions.

  3. If on this IDIOT got to be President ,We do not need to say GOD PANIS US because we are al reedy !! How many idiots in the democratic party ,al want to be president ,not because want to help the nation, to reap of and steal as much they can .the same did Hillary ,Pelosi from what is multi millionerd Biden steal Billions ,so PEOPLE You see , we are not important

  4. It must be remembered that satan quotes scripture for his own purpose.
    It is interesting to note that the Biblical account of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah has been confirmed by scientific investigation. You can view it at:

    Romans 1:26-28

    26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural,
    27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
    28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct.

    Also, this is the same as Jesus Christ speaking since St. Paul was given Power of Attorney by the following:

    Luke 10:16

    16 ” He who hears you hears me, and he who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me.”

    It is also interesting to note that prophesy of Akita of which all events contained in it have come to pass except the last on which is as folllows:

    “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.”

  5. The majority of Blacks dislike gays as do Muslims! Oil and water!!

  6. liar and hypocrite – He may hold the

    Liar and hypocrite — He may carry the BIBLE around in his hand; but he does not have it in his mind or heart. If anyone thinks he is truthful; they have no reasoning ability

  7. He is keeping God out of his politics but trying to use God to fool voters. We need to have God in our politics and obey his commands in politics and other areas of our life.

  8. Pray for Buttigigieg’s salvation. Vote for Trump.

  9. God’s Word says at our human birth we entered this world with a ‘dead’ spirit; (God says that not me), The Lord says, ”We must be born again,’ (John 3:1-15). Born again of the Holy Spirit (John 14:14 -18, & 15:1-15). Apostle Paul explains once this happens we will become very conscience of our deep rooted sins.

    There will be a *struggle within a new born Christian (Romans 7:11 through 8:39). The Holy Spirit presses hard on our minds His Holy Commandments; Good & bad, right & wrong becomes abundantly clearer, but God will not force His Will on us ..We always have control over the decisions we make. REPENTANCE & DISTASTE for our deep rooted sins will happen IF the Holy Spirit has taken control of the dead human spirit.

    * God says… homosexually is considered by “abomination” and by the way ..Never quoted by a mere political party to my knowledge anyway.
    *Every Christian knows John 14:6..”I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, No HUman comes to the Father except through Me”.
    *It is HIS Way or No Way if we chose to carry the name “Christian”.

    With all that said, HOW then can a sexually active homosexual..’married’ to another homosexual be “IN Christ Jesus and Christ Jesus in you” (John 17:1-26) Being ‘married’ infers sexually active.. Because there are certainly saved EXhomosexuals Christians.
    (Read Numbers 18:18 and Romans 1:22 through 1:32)

  10. Buttingay is a damn ass pirate. He’ll slide up the backside of anything while having someone slide up his backside. He knows nothing of of the bible and his pretend bible efforts are meant to show how stupid religious people are.

    Are you ssd’s stupid enough to fall for a butt pirate sliding up your back side.

  11. True it has nit read it

  12. Amen God forbid this he/she from becoming President

  13. I’m sorry, but knowing what the Bible says about homosexuality is letting me know that he’s using God to try and get votes. Not a good idea at all.

  14. Surprised he doesn’t burst into flames, if he touches a bible

  15. Either he’s coming to The Lord, or he is one SICK reprobate! . . . he needs to show REPENTANCE about that LIFESTYLE that he’s leading, which God calls an ABOMINATION. A bath and a bowtie does not pig into a poodle! The HOMOSEXUAL lifestyle is extremely perverted and anyone practicing it will “NOT enter into the Kingdom of heaven” (Read it for yourself). The BIBLE give GRAVE warnings about ABOMINATIONS like this. RUN AWAY from it. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  16. Buttigieg is nothing more than a disgusting sexual pervert! He has a lot of gall attempting to use Religion to gain votes! He should bow his head in “Shame” and ask the Lord for forgiveness, except somehow I don’t think he thinks he needs to! His arrogance is only surpassed by his ignorance of Scripture! What a disgusting immoral degenerate!!

  17. Noting new, remember the oversize bible Clainton was seen carrying during the Lewinsky investigation.

  18. Try reading your Bible. It states: “Men who lie with men will NOT inherit God’s kingdom nor will those who agree”. Keep God out of yourpolitics.

  19. Isn’t this the guy that commits Sodomy?
    I rest my case.

  20. you’re right. Except—St. john didn’t write
    Galatians, it was Paul.

  21. Right on! Now if some of the so-called Christian [sell-out] churches, that St John mentions in Galatians 1:6-9 could just believe, maybe just maybe we wouldn’t have the blood or need of 50 million American babies blood to sacrifice on the Godless Lib’s alter of shame!

  22. Hey Butthead … try reading about Sodom and Gomorrah … you are heading for HELL !

  23. I’d like to know how this person explains all the Bible verses that specifically call his homosexuality a sin. God calls homosexuals abominations and warns that they will all go to hell. There’s no mincing of God’s words and no way to twist them. True believers of the Bible know this.
    Also how can he say God condones abortion? During the time when God was telling the people what they could and could not eat, he specifically told them not to eat the blood of an animal because the Life is in the blood. The blood (therefore life) is in a fetus long before the breath, which means God considers it a living being well before birth.
    Butt-head needs to study his Bible longer than 2 hours.
