We’re only two primaries into the 2020 Presidential race, but the field has already narrowed for the Democratic nominee. Elizabeth Warren is struggling. Joe Biden is fading. Bernie Sanders, to the chagrin of the party, is the current front runner. And Pete Buttigieg, the former Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is surging.
Have you noticed how the liberal new media seems to be pushing Mayor Pete, often comparing him to President Barack Obama?
Buttigieg is often described as youthful. Articulate. And fresh. One news article wrote, “He’s Christian, progressive, and gay.”
Mayor Pete, who was raised Catholic and a declared devoted Episcopalian, often refers to his faith in campaign speeches, cites Bible verses, and claims that he is closer to God after marrying his husband in June 2018.
What IF Mayor Pete was the Democratic nominee? And what IF Mayor Pete was elected President? Granted both are pretty big IF’s. But what IF?
Think about that.
IF Mayor Pete was elected President, there are two thoughts to consider.
First of all, Christians would still be obligated to respect the Presidency, obey the law and pray for President Buttigieg.
If that seems difficult to accept, imagine being a Christian in New Testament times. Paganism was widely practiced. The Governors were corrupt. Most of the Roman Emperors were homosexuals and even pedophiles. The Roman historian Suetonius wrote that the Emperor, Tiberius, who was in power during Jesus’ day, retired to the island of Capri to engage in “wanton sexual pleasure” with young boys and girls.
Yet, when asked whether or not it was right to pay taxes to the corrupt Roman Empire, Jesus said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.” (Matt 22:21).
Nero was the Roman Emperor during Paul’s ministry. Nero was a fornicator, adulterer, and pedophile. The sexual pervert once married a 12-year-old boy, Sporus, and paraded him through the streets of Rome.
Yet, Paul commanded Christians to pray “for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (I Tim. 2:2).
Just like we ought to pray for President Trump with his checkered moral past, we would be called upon to pray for future Presidents regardless of their sexual preferences.
Secondly, I agree with author and professor Dr. Michael Brown who recently wrote this Op-Ed for CNSnews.com. “Choosing an out and proud ‘married’ gay man to run for president, let alone become president, would contribute to the further degeneration and moral confusion of our society along with further attacks on our most fundamental rights.”
When Brown tweeted this message, he received a lot of support, but as expected some strong opposition. Bible teacher and founder of Phoenix Miniseries, Gilbert Gonzalez Jr wrote: “Please tell me this tweet is from a different century. There is no way that anyone today that has any education would ever write something so generally uninformed, childish, and biblically ignorant. This is why people don’t take Christianity seriously. Its leaders refuse to learn.”
IF Mayor Pete were nominated and elected, you can expect the radical homosexual agenda and activism to accelerate and intensify with a President proud of his homosexuality.
Already on the campaign trail Mayor Pete has been seen kissing his husband and citing “Biblical evidence” to justify same-sex marriage. In one interview Mayor Pete described his journey of faith and his desire for religion in his campaign to be used not “as a cudgel but invoked as a way of calling us to higher values.”
Apparently, the Mayor, who not only champions same-sex marriage but abortion on demand is reading a different Bible than I am. The apostle who lived in Nero’s day called homosexuality a sin along with adultery and fornication(1 Cor 6:9-11). He also described it in Romans 1as “degrading.” “Shameful.” And “unnatural.”
Be advised, this post is not motivated by partisan politics or a hatred of homosexuals, but by moral and Biblical considerations. Sadly, our citizens are generally uneducated by inspired Scripture and often deceived by ill-equipped religious leaders, like Gonzalez, lacking respect for God’s Word.
We’re living in perilous times. “Do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Eph. 5:17).

Amen…preach on Preacherman!
NO NEVER, ITS SAD THESE SINFUL PEOPLE ARE PUSHING AND FORCING THEIR EVIL ON US, ALSO THE HARM TO OUR YOUNGER GENERATION. THEY WILL BUST THE LAKE OF FIRE WIDE OPEN. WE JUST HAVE TO TRUST IN GOD AND PRAY HE WILL HELP, GIVE US ALL STRENGTH TO DEFEAT THESE EVIL ONE’S WHO ARE IN CONTROL. GET OUT AND VOTE THEM OUT.OF OFICE.
Excellent comments on the obvious but the Church to day would rather chase “Priscilla’s” than preach what is plain.
Keep it up
Many Christians agree with “the Mayor, who not only champions same-sex marriage but abortion on demand”. They are not reading a different Bible than you are Ken. They just have different glasses.
As you point out…”The apostle who lived in Nero’s day called homosexuality a sin along with adultery and fornication (1 Cor 6:9-11). He also described it in Romans 1 as “degrading.” “Shameful.” And “unnatural.” ”
What many Christians then and now are missing are 2020 glasses. Many Christians have been convinced that Christ is a single, celibate male who was and is the perfect sinless incarnation of GOD the Father. Believing this lie, they went on to perpetuate the view that the Kingdom of God was an exclusive place that excluded the Woman Caught in Adultery and all those believing her to be the worst sinner who needed to repent.
And yet so believing, well meaning Christians only serve to trap her in a loveless life, in a wicked life. Such a Dilemma! If the Woman Caught In Adultery remains with her CROWN of Thorns, her husband Steven, she accepts a false love. If she divorces and remarries she commits adultery, many have considered a stoning offence. If she remains single, she must not kiss or engage in sexual acts of intimacy to express her love and affection lest she be guilty of blasphemy.
In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul extolled the virtues of LOVE, saying Love [is perfect] It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things…For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial passes away. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became an [adult], I set aside childish ways. Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”
Knowing Paul fully is to know that Paul is The Woman Caught in Adultery and as such Paul is the Female Jesus, the Bride crucified with Christ (Galatians 2:20). Embracing her and lifting her up as the Mother of Jesus and Bride of Christ and celebrating her marriage to the Bridegroom releases her and her followers from the shame and the TRAP of sexual immorality and frees them and gives them the choice to marry or not.
With 2020 Vision Christians can put on the whole armour of God and tear down the Old Kingdom ruling over heaven and earth…and take part in the building of the New Heaven and the New Earth! Fear Not. God is with us.
As in most cases whenever someone brings up the woman caught in adultery, they leave the part out where Christ says to “Go your way and sin no more.”
Being a follower of Christ is not like going to a cafeteria where you just pick and choose what you want and leave what you don’t want.

The part about “go and sin no more” is an important piece of the story. The Woman is trapped…She can’t go and sin no more. I think you miss the point Jeff. Jesus the Rabboni insists that anyone divorcing cannot marry again. If they do…he says that they will be guilty of committing adultery. So you see the Woman is trapped–and she is the cursed vine of the Gospel. To go back and try to make a go with her husband…she would be living a lie and keeping herself from living as God intended her to live–with a husband who loves, honours and cherishes her in a covenanting relationship. Yet, to divorce the husband of her childish years and marry the husbandman God intends for her in her wiser adult years…makes her an adulterer–and the Cross of Jesus.

I would ask, Why are we surprised at the ungodliness of our culture?, except I know the answer. Too many of us can’t shake the mis-impression that America is (or was) a christian nation. It isn’t now and never was. While the open support of homosexuality is new to us, it isn’t to history, or to many places in the world today. I am shocked at the “woe is me, this world is coming to an end because of the gay agenda” chicken little attitude among my brethren. Seriously brethren grow a spine. As you noted Ken, the first century Christians lived in a culture sewer and were told to engage it with the love of God. Brethren today want to use the arm of the state to force a stop to behavior they don’t like instead of the word of God in faith to persuade some like Paul.
When Paul condemned the Corinthian church for accepting a sinner in their midst he made it very plain it wasn’t their job to judge or condemn the sinners in the world (1 Cor 5:9-13). We’ve turned that around and, like the Corinthians, will tolerate hatred and bitterness and gossip in the church all while calling on the govt to end the gay agenda. That may explain why we have so little success reaching the lost, we’re too busy condemning them to try to save them. We need to be salt and light, which means get out of the shaker and into the world (yes even among gay people). Let’s become slaves to the world so we might save some (1 Cor 9:19).
And before your heads explode and you accuse me of saying we can join in their sin – NO!!!!!! Don’t even go there. Let your moral excellence stand out as the light in this sin darkened world – regardless of how others respond (1 Peter 2:11-12). Just don’t be known as the man or woman who hates others – gay or straight!
Well said James! Christians should be loving one another and holding brothers and sisters accountable to the Christian ideal to love one another within a covenanting relationship that honours them as “sons” persons in Christ.

This post back during the Presidental primaries received one of the greatest number of ‘hits” during 2020. While Mayor Pete didn’t receive the nomination, the 2 major points are still valid and remind us of our need to be faithful regardless of the political or moral climate in which we live.
Amen Ken. Thanks for reposting this one. May 2021 be a Magda Helene a great and bright one that guides us into unity and a magnificent future.
