Remember when gas prices were so high at the end of George W. Bush’s presidency we couldn’t even afford to drive? We’re talking around $4-5, even higher in some states. Ridiculously high. Now that several years later gas prices have settled in the $2 range, all of a sudden, we’re conditioned to accept that as reasonable — even though they’re still much higher than they were in years past.
This is exactly how Democrats operate. They throw someone out into the mix that is so ridiculously outrageous that even most Democrats find them unreasonable — then all of a sudden, a slightly less outrageous option becomes the voice of reason.
In this case, in the wake of Beto O’Rourke’s attack on Christian churches and demand that Christian organizations comply with gay marriage and the homosexual agenda, or else, lose their tax-exempt status, Pete Buttigieg, the homosexual candidate now seems like the voice of reason – even to Christians.
In response to O’Rourke’s comments, Buttigieg — who, let’s be clear, also wants churches to celebrate sodomy — comes on television to announce that O’Rourke’s methods were a little too harsh.
I agree that anti-discrimination law ought to be applied to all institutions. But the idea that you’re going to strip churches of their tax-exempt status if they haven’t found their way towards blessing same-sex marriage, I’m not sure [O’Rourke] understood the implications of what he was saying,
Senior ERLC Fellow, Andrew T. Walker praises Buttigieg calling it “honesty” and agreeing with Buttigieg that his “concerns about polarization” are “good.”
Let’s be honest — Buttigieg’s concerns about polarization are not good. He wants the exact same thing that O’Rourke wants, he just wants to take it slower so that it’s less noticeable and more palatable for the Church. He wants to do it in a way that conservatives are able to swallow smaller chunks of it at a time.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!Isaiah 5:20
Why can’t you call it what it is, Walker? Are you so blind to the deceptive tactics of these God-haters? There is no reasonability on the left, period. None. They all hate God and they all hate the Church. Who cares about his “concerns about polarization”? What if this polarization is a good thing? What if God is using it to separate the sheep from the goats and clearly define His bride so that they can be a light in the midst of a dark and dying world? Why do you care to intermingle with these people?
It’s baffling to me how this kind of thinking ends up in leadership positions in the Church.
