    Well if it’s a Personal Testimony you're after about how he got to know Jesus you’ll be waiting a long time; this is an Evangelical practice, not mainstream Episcopalian. Nevertheless, Buttigieg has spoken openly about his faith many times as has been previously linked.

    Here again:

    And here:

    “He has also stood out as a devoted Christian who is speaking against the dominance of the religious right in the public square. As Buttigieg told me in an interview Friday, “The left is rightly committed to a separation of church and state … but we need to not be afraid to invoke arguments that are convincing on why Christian faith is going to point you in a progressive direction…”

    You don't know SQUAT about what Buttigieg believes because you just make things up from your own little drama world. He's a homosexual, so you're going to sing his praises endlessly.

    Tassman will invent something. He's THAT desperate for Buttigieg to be a "for really Christian", even though Tassman is an anti-Christian bigot himself.

    Laughing.... 2,000 years of Christianity based on personal testimony, and Tassman tosses all that away.... this is hysterical. What a bloomin' idiot!

    Yes, you just proved my point -- Buttigieg is perverting Christianity to support his own twisted Liberation Theology and his political campaign to be POTUS, as his own brother-in-law suggests.

    Thanks, Tass, you're a sweetie.

    Yup! That's EGGZackly what he's doing, according to his own brother-in-law.

    Thanks again, Tass!

    here is an interesting table:

    Shows that those that believe homosexuality should be accepted don't bother to read scripture.

    Wouldn't you say that "reading scripture" (at least occasionally) is one of the "practices" of "practicing Christians"?

    I would love for Tassman to list the "practices" that "practicing Christian Buttigieg" actually practices.

    (Though, you may have noted that he's morphed "practicing Christian" into "committed Christian".

    Yep. it seems that the less a person bothers to read the bible, the more they are influenced by the world instead of by God.

    Which is why, when Tassman claimed that Buttigieg "interprets those passages differently", I countered with "he totally ignores them". As you have stated, he's a "Cafeteria Christian" at best - picking and choosing only the green jello and desserts, and ignoring the meat and potatoes.

    (it was interesting that Tassman interpreted "Cafeteria Christian" as an admission that Buttigieg is, indeed, a for really Christian.
