    Editing another persons post is not "dishonest", Michel, whatever you might believe. At least not as long as the person doing the editing is clearly signaling that that's what he's doing, which OBP clearly did and on top of that he left the post ID in the quote tag, so anyone could go and look at the original. There simply was no deception involved. You might not think he "captured the gist of your post" correctly, but you have no grounds for accusing him of dishonesty simply because you think (and however warranted you might be in thinking so) he misunderstood your post.

    So, whatever other reasons you might have for not liking the editing of someone elses post that happens here sometime, dishonesty is not one of those things, because whenever it happens the person doing it usually makes it clear that the post they're quoting has been purposefully edited.

    He proclaims he’s a Christian every time he attends a worship service in his local Episcopal church. The recitation of one of the Creeds is an integral part of all services in the Anglican Communion, e.g. The Apostles’ Creed, recited at Evensong:

    I BELIEVE in God, the Father almighty,
    creator of heaven and earth.

    I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
    He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
    and born of the Virgin Mary.

    He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
    was crucified, died, and was buried.

    He descended to the dead.
    On the third day he rose again.
    He ascended into heaven,
    and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
    He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit,
    the holy catholic Church,
    the communion of saints,
    the forgiveness of sins,
    the resurrection of the body,
    and the life everlasting. Amen

    Oh please. I know people who are not Christian or are openly agnostic and yet who still go to church for a wide variety of reasons. They may go for their spouse's sake, for the fellowship, to make business/political connections etc.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    I just had a flash of Michael Corleone in church, renouncing satan and all his works and all his pomps -- while his men committed bloody murder. I enjoy the GF movies, but after all the times I've seen them, that is always jarring.

    Or, in Buttigieg's case he proclaims his belief in Jesus by reciting the Creeds regularly in church. He says that "I found in (the Episcopal Cathedral of) St. James this faith community that really takes seriously that it's urban, that it's part of a city. And just very quickly felt drawn to that community. And now for about 10 years it's been my faith home." "It was a mix of faith but also of community that really made it the right place to be".

    But it seems you are determined that nothing will persuade you that he is sincerely Christian.

    So, Buttigieg is on a par with a fictional mafia boss in your mind? Gotcha.

    That is one of my favorite parts, but honestly, I still like the fact that he gets revenge...

    How often is that?

    And how do you khow he actually recites the creed? Lots of CEO "Christians" simply stand there, or mumble their way through it.

    Here is what he has said PERSONALLY about his Christianity:
















    I'll be happy to add to that should you find something?


    ETA: And since you bolded the word "BELIEVE", you think maybe Pete shouts that part?
