The first openly gay 2020 Democratic presidential candidate is pushing a never before heard of form of Christianity which is far from normal.
IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg insisted in an interview that Christianity does not belong to the “right wing” and that the holy scripture is “progressive.”
Buttigieg stated, “I don’t think religion belongs to one political party. When I go to church, the scripture I hear has to do with protecting the poor, and spending time with the prisoner, and healing the sick, and caring for the stranger which to me is another word for immigrant. It has a very clear set of moral and policy implications none of which are things I would associate with the right wing.”
Adding, “Christianity to me is about humility, it’s about love. If we want to put those values into political practice at least by my lights, they lead us in a very progressive direction.”
