    A) He claims to be gay, and proud of it.
    2) He is openly living with a man, proving it's not just talk.

    PS.... and it's not "was", but "is", obviously.





    Correct -- I have my doubts, but I can't know that he is NOT a Christian. I'm fairly certain, based on what I know thus far, that he is not a "practicing" Christian, but I'm still open to be shown otherwise.
    Hence, according to your notion of Christianity Buttigieg cannot be a REAL Christian as an acknowledged practicing homosexual. So why play the dishonest game that you’re “willing to be shown otherwise? You clearly are not.

    That's what I thought too until my Bishop corrected me.

    What part was corrected by your Bishop? Perhaps you are a member of the the Anglican Church in America, which is a Continuing Anglican church body, separate from the Episcopal Church in USA.

    What a doofus. He still has the option to repent, and there can be other factors involved. His Salvation and Christianity are not dependent upon his sexual orientation, so I'm asking about his own statements concerning his faith.

    So why play the dishonest game
    Wow..... says the anti-Christian drama queen who constantly makes false accusations, false claims, fails to support the crap he claims, says stupid things, then denies saying them....

    that you’re “willing to be shown otherwise? You clearly are not.
    I have been searching the web almost DAILY for any claim or statement by Buttigieg that could be put in the "plus" side of the argument that he is - by your own statement - a "practicing Christian", then coming up with your very own definition of that that entails.... Tass - you're like the absolute WORST debater I've ever encountered. You make the Mormons look like GENIUSES!!! Heck, you're starting to make JimL look smart!

    Being unable to find support of his claim is NOT the same as being unwilling to be shown. I have asked repeatedly - you have failed miserably.

    Perhaps this is your final admission that you can't find a single thing from Buttigieg himself stating ANYTHING that supports your claim that he's a "practicing Christian".

    Hi, Tass. I'm definitely TEC though I usually describe myself as an Anglican (more conservative, Postulant in the Anglican Order of Preachers, etc.) I was corrected because a bunch of us went to grab dinner and our server mentioned he was briefly a seminarian and said something about some Archbishop that was kind to him. I asked the gentlemen if he was Episcopalian or Catholic. He responded he was definitely Catholic to which my Bishop turned to me and explained we don't have Archbishops in the Episcopal Church. A learning experience for me. I did recall that the Church of England has an Archbishop but the Episcopal Church is a separate entity in the Anglican Communion.

    Sorry, but that's not something we do....believe it or not. Though we highly encourage it, we don't really recommend anything specific.

    Gotcha - I found something from a Prison Ministry outfit, and their website has a pretty decent statement of faith, so I'll check them out a bit further.

    Well, that's true. In the Episcopalian Church the equivalent to an Archbishop is known as a Presiding Bishop. The Anglican Communion elsewhere, including my home country Australia, has Archbishops whose job it is to run a Province and lesser bishops under him in charge of the dioceses withing each Province.

    You will never find anything to convince you of what is obvious to anyone other than Evangelical bigots, that Buttigieg is a committed Christian.

    You're so amusing when you go all drama queen.

    My turn.

    [Tazzymode] Well, what's extremely obvious is that you (drama queen underline italics) are completely incapable (more drama queen underline italics) of backing up anything (still more drama queen underline italics) you say! [/Tazzymode]

    • There is NO evidence from his own mouth that he's a committed Christian.
    • His parents didn't go to Church.
    • He doesn't claim to attend Church.
    • He has a very low view of the Bible, only quoting the verses that support his liberation theology view.
    • He has a very low view of prayer.
    • His own brother-in-law claims this his "faith" is all a ruse for political purposes.
    • He only claimed to be "more-or-less" Anglican.
    • He has chosen a lifestyle in direct opposition to the Bible.
    • He is advocating for abortion with NO limits.
    • There is NO statement from him professing Christ as Savior.
    • He doesn't appear to "practice" ANYTHING that a "practicing Christian" would practice.



    And, on top of that, he has the stamp of approval of Tweb's most hate-filled anti-Christian bigot, which is yet another strike against him.

    Now, your turn. Pitch a little hissy, and do your little kabuki dance.



    To anybody else reading this --

    A) it's entirely possible that Buttigieg, at some point in his life, had made a commitment to Christ, but I can't find any evidence of it. And I certainly can't prove a negative.
    2) it's entirely possible that Buttigieg could, at some point, repent of his sinful lifestyle and return to Christ (if he ever was a Christian to begin with).
    C) the above is HIGHLY unlikely because he is staking his entire political future on being the "right kind of Christian" to the extreme leftist wackos.
    D) the fact that ATHEIST anti-Christian bigot Tassman so vigorously defends his "Christianity" should speak to... well.... I'll leave it at that.
