It's about time someone rocks this boat. It's beyond time to confront the christian right on their hypocrisy and support for the most unchristian president.
Also, good move on tapping into this large voting block and fertile ground. Now if he could change their minds with the obvious. This could fall in line with replacing Pence as the VP for 2020.
I'm liking Mayor Pete
"In light of Trump’s many controversies, Buttigieg couldn’t wrap his mind around how evangelical voters could tolerate the president.
“Even on the version of Christianity that you hear from the religious right, which is about sexual ethics, I can’t believe that somebody who was caught writing hush money checks to adult film actresses is somebody they should be lifting up as the kind of person you want to be leading this nation,” he said."https://news.yahoo.com/pete-buttigieg-r ...

christians always give themselves the out.
They claim they are not perfect, just forgiven.
Meanwhile they hold those they don't like to moral purity.
I call it situational morality.

Like I keep saying....
Evangelicals are Zionists. "Support for Israel" however you want to define it, is a couple steps above passing judgement on somebody's morality on their ladder of importance. As long as they're convinced that Democrats hate Israel, Donald could openly have a wing of mistresses living in the White House and they'd still support him. That #&@$!% simple.
As for Buttigieg, very impressive guy but I don't think he's electable in today's America. Maybe next time or maybe as Vice-President, but at the moment I think nominating him would be giving Donald a second term.

Was Trump electable? The bar has never been lower.
He's working the process... Write a book ---> Run for president ---> Collect the royalties.
I like him though. He speaks to a wide range of People.

The range of people who don't support him is larger.

The number of people who will HATE his opponent will be lower next time as well.

I heard a better pronunciation of his name - Buddha-judge.

I see the right already has some fancy pronunciations for his name. :roll:

He's young and I don't think he's electable at the moment but he has wisdom you don't often see in politics.

Ah.. an actual thinking person back in the White House. No way!
I don't know .. people said Obama was too inexperienced, Trump would never win. Things happen. He's not even announced yet and apparently he's already guaranteed a spot at the debate table. Time will tell.

If you want Christians not to vote for Trump in 2020 then give us a better presidential candidate. Stop telling us how stupid we are and how terrible the current President is. President Trump is not our Pastor and Chief he was the candidate that was closer to our agenda than Hillary Clinton, Jill Stein or Gary Johnson. The DNC and the Clinton campaign cheated Bernie Sanders and that keep Sander voters like my two sons home on election night.
Show me the candidate.

ICYMI. That's a common soundbite with conservatives.

Why do you guys give Sanders voters a pass?https://www.npr.org/2017/08/24/54581224 ... rvey-finds
Fully 12 percent of people who voted for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries voted for President Trump in the general election. That is according to the data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study — a massive election survey of around 50,000 people.
Schaffner's numbers show that after a bitter Democratic primary, more than 1 in 10 of those who voted in the primaries for the very progressive Sanders ended up voting for the Republican in the general election, rather than for the Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton.
If Clinton gets the Sander's votes she's in the White House. :bonk:
