Mayor Pete and the Crackup of Christianity

Mayor Pete and the Crackup of Christianity

USA -(Ammoland.com)- “(T)here is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so,” said Hamlet, who thereby raised some crucial questions:

Is moral truth subjective? Does it change with changing times and changing attitudes? Or is there a higher law, a permanent law, God's law, immutable and eternal, to which man's law should conform?

Are, for example, the Ten Commandments of the Old Testament, Christian teaching and natural law unchangeable and applicable to all men at all times? Or can some of the 10 be consigned to the dumpster of antiquated moral prohibitions?

This question has been brought straight into the presidential primaries by Pete Buttigieg, breakout star of the spring of 2019.

“Mayor Pete” is proudly gay and living happily with his husband.

He says God made him the way he is, and he is living the life God intended for him. Raising the same-sex marriage issue himself, the mayor defiantly taunted Mike Pence:

“Yes, Mr. Vice President … it has moved me closer to God. … That's the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand: That if you have a problem with who I am, your quarrel is not with me. …Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”

Buttigieg declared his candidacy recently, and his bid ensures that America's deepening moral divide will be front and center in 2020.

Our culture wars will not be ending anytime soon.

This weekend, General Social Survey data revealed that Americans who profess to have “no religion,” 23.1%, now exceed Catholics, our largest religion with 23%, and Evangelicals at 22.5%. And the “nones” have grown by 266% since 1991.

As for the mainstream Protestant congregations, together, they are not half as numerous as those Americans who profess no religion. Added to our racial and ethnic diversity, America is growing more diverse religiously, de-Christianizing with all deliberate speed. We are becoming another people, and a post-Christian America appears to be our destiny well before the end of this century.

Consider what has changed already.

In the 19th century, blasphemy was a crime. In the Roaring '20s the “vices” of booze and gambling were outlawed. Now they are major sources of state revenue. Divorce was a rarity. Now half of all marriages are dissolved.

After the sexual revolution of the '60s, births out of wedlock rocketed to where 40 percent of all children are born without a father in the home, as are half of Hispanics and 70 percent of all black children.

Pornography, which used to bring a prison term, today dominates cable TV. Marijuana, once a social scourge, is the hot new product. And Sen. Kamala Harris wants prostitution legalized.
In the lifetime of many Americans, homosexuality and abortion were still scandalous crimes. They are now cherished “constitutional rights”.

Yet, Mayor Pete's assertion — that God made him gay, and God intended that he live his life this way, and that this life is moral and good — is another milestone on the road to a new America.
For what Buttigieg is saying is that either God changes his moral law to conform to the changing behavior of mankind or that, for 2,000 years, Christian preaching and practice toward homosexuals has been bigoted, injurious and morally indefensible.

If Pete is right, since the time of Christ, Christians have ostracized and persecuted gays simply for being and behaving as God intended.

And if that is true, what is the defense of Christianity?

Already, among a good slice of America, especially the young, the West is guilty of centuries of racism, imperialism, colonialism, slavery, sexism, ethnic cleansing, religious persecution and cultural genocide against indigenous peoples.

Now, according to Mayor Pete's logic, the West is also guilty of centuries of hateful homophobia toward people living as God made them and intended them to live.

What does this portend for 2020?

While Democrats defend Mayor Pete's same-sex marriage as moral, they will also insist that women's “reproductive rights” remain sacrosanct, and that unborn infants, 60 million of whom have been killed in the womb since Roe v. Wade in 1973, still have no rights at all, not even the right to life.

How does a nation so divided ever come together again?

How can a nation, many of whose elites are so ashamed of its history and heritage and deplorable other half — as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic … and bigoted” — credibly claim to be a shining city on a hill or a light unto the nations?

America is today as powerful, prosperous and free as any nation the world has ever seen. And we have used that wealth and freedom to create a culture and a society many of our own people and much of the world now see as dissolute and decadent.

Post-Christian America, in many ways, is beginning to mirror what we were once taught that the pre-Christian Roman Empire looked like.

Indeed, if the mayor's lifestyle is moral, Christianity got it wrong for 20 centuries.

    So 23.1 % do not want religion. That means about 76.9 % do. We can see here how numbers are manipulated for a cause as this “writer” (who wants to believe we are stupid) wants us to believe that there are more God haters than believers.

    I got into a discussion with a husband and wife who both have their doctorates and he is a professor at a local college. I asked what their position was on gays in the ministry, they both recently became co-pastors at the church we attend. From him I got a very political response but from her I got a response of “What would you do if it was your child, you would still love them” All in all I found out that they had spent to much time in the classroom listening to progressive profs. because they are progressive.

    ATTRACTION to one of the same sex is not grevious sin, or an abomination. ACTING on that attraction is, and God clearly labels that as an abomination. Don’t like that? Take it up with Him. HE’s the one that so defined sodomy. And we who uphold God’s judgement on the matter are not “phobic’ at all,… unless one were to count us fearful of God’s judgement, yes, even upon our entire land. Perhaps the hugely anti-sodomite moslems are sent our way by the God who has declared the practice an abomination? He has a long history of using various peoples… Read more »

    What we are seeing in America is the decaying and fall of a nation. When people, in any walk of life, hold no law higher than their own there can be no justice. The bad news is that the laws written by man “evolve” and spiral down in decay. The good news is the laws of GOD never change. They are there for your health, happiness and wellbeing. What is righteous remain righteous and what is evil remains evil. There are laws that enslave man and there are laws that set men free. Either what we hold to be right… Read more »

    GOD told us many thing in scripture, the majority of which has been poorly translated, misinterpreted, and ignored. God warned about the false preachers, the deceivers, that ALL men are liars, and ALL men are sinners. He told us what is necessary to have eternal life and what will happen to those who chose a life of immorality and sin. The doctrine of man does NOT in any way override GOD’s doctrine, and those who insist on claiming that they are Christian while knowingly and blatantly violating GOD’s laws are doomed.

    Because someone does not agree with you does not mean that they hate you ! That’s a stretch on your part to justify your position. God and others love you in spite of your’s , mine or their sin . But it still is a sin . And others do not have to like it , or agree with it because of those that do choose to live that way or accept it as being normal and ok . Because if it was normal people would not be constantly expecting others to be accepting of it .

She would have been a dark skinned woman and GOD approved that marriage. GOD even placed leprosy on Moses sister and brother, after they opposed the marriage. They then begged Moses to have GOD restore them and remove the disease. He petitioned GOD and the disease was lifted. No more in-law problems.

    As it has been throughout history, man contorts Christianity either as justification to leave, disdain it or to justify current or desired behavior. Making Christianity in their own way removes their guilt. This we know, Christ accepted all but never condoned or was a cohort is the commission of sins. It other words Christ would not have baked the cake.

Many of the mistranslations of scripture, the misinterpretation, and the outright deceit have come from catholicism and judaism.

    Those who adhere to God’s written word are Christian. Professing the Son as Savior and God’s son, Jesus Christ redeemed our sinful souls upon the cross. However, it is as Paul said when referring to false Christians, ” they are from us but not of us”. Christianity is a name given to the above stated belief. The word of God, the Holy Bible, is wherein you will find your answer.

This is why GOD warned that few will enter the narrow gate!

    No, I should say – shouted, VERY, VERY loudly, for if those who profess a desire to be obedient followers of God do not speak out, shout out, what is right in God’s eyes alone they will become less and less regarded until real moral truth will no longer exist.

Christmas, Easter, Sunday, etc. are not viewed as celebrations of our creator, but a celebration of giving and getting, and “partying” instead of worshiping.
