Democrat Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg went after conservative Christians on Tuesday night during the second round the Democratic primary debate. As Fox News reports:
South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg blasted “so-called conservative Christian senators” for opposing the minimum wage as Democrats tried to take the moral high ground during the first night of the second round of Democratic presidential primary debates.
“The minimum wage is just too low. And so-called conservative Christian senators right now in the Senate are blocking a bill to raise the minimum wage when scripture says that, ‘Whoever oppresses the poor taunts their maker,'” Buttigieg declared in Detroit, Mich. at the Fox Theatre, citing Proverbs 14:31.
Fox News contributor Jonathan Morris said the “so-called” part was “most offensive” during Buttigieg’s remarks, stripping Republicans of their faith claims “just because you don’t believe my policy is right.” He said that it was a low-point for the 37-year-old Democratic presidential hopeful.
“You saw every single candidate was trying to take that moral high ground and say, ‘We are the ones that are good, and the White House is evil,'” Morris told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning, pointing directly to Buttigieg, he added: “I wouldn’t say to anyone you are a ‘so-called Christian,’ right? Unless they say I don’t believe in the divinity of Jesus or something, OK.”
Apparently, any Christian who doesn’t agree with the ultra-liberal Buttigieg’s doesn’t actually really believe. Convenient isn’t it?
