Democrats' Religion Comes With a New Twist

"One of the biggest applause lines of Pete Buttigieg's latest trip to Iowa came when he said: 'Faith isn't the property of one political party.'" So starts a June 12 Politico article by Elena Schneider titled "Democrats make a play for faith voters turned off by Trump."

Buttigieg is correct. Political parties are groups of individuals, known as party constituents, with similar political goals and opinions, whose purpose it is to get candidates who represent their values elected to public office. The ultimate battle in America is between two competing religions vying for control of the public square: Christianity versus secularism.

Pete Buttigieg, it may be recalled, is the "openly gay, happily married" Millennial presidential candidate portrayed by the media as a "devout Christian." The "devout" Buttigieg lately appears to be trying to recast biblical Christianity to fit his own image. Entering into marriage with his male companion, Chasten Buttigieg, has moved him, as he says, "closer to God."

"But the Democratic focus on religion comes with a new twist," the Politico article continues. "While some previous Democratic candidates have used their faith to connect with conservative or traditionalist voters, 2020 hopefuls like Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker and others are using their religion to justify liberal positions on same-sex marriage, abortion and other policy areas that have traditionally animated the conservative religious right in the other direction."

"Buttigieg, the openly gay mayor of South Bend, Indiana, went viral in April saying that Vice President Mike Pence's 'quarrel, sir, is with my Creator' if he had a problem with Buttigieg's sexuality. read more
