    You guys seem to continually think I am somehow offended. For the record:

    "That is inappropriate"

    and

    "I am offended"

    are two separate concepts. Assuming the latter when the former has been said is essentially an exercise in mind-reading.

    Unvarnished, naked ruthlessness usually is.

    You're "offended" by it because you find it "inappropriate". Last word to you.

    How does Beck know what Buttigeg does when the latter has been as quite as a church mouse about it? Beck doesn't even live in the same same state[1] much less go to the same church (and wouldn't even if they lived in the same neighborhood since they belong to different denominations.

    Beck has no idea if Buttigeg recites the creeds, is respectably silent during that time or is checking his emails and text messages.

    A statement from Buttigeg affirming that he is would be sufficient. But he has been noticeably silent on the matter which is odd for a practicing/committed/devout Christian[2]. Instead we get a few scattered incredibly nebulous statements that as I previously noted could also have been said by a semi-agnostic theist.





    1. South Bend, Indiana is over 700 miles from NYC where Beck resides.

    2. As a Christian Buttigeg ought to be quite aware of I Peter 3:5:

    Scripture Verse:

    but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect

    © Copyright Original Source



    Buttigeg seems awfully reluctant to offer such a defense and such reticence is quite frankly inexplicable if he is, as you proclaim, a practicing/committed/devout Christian

    You are displaying quite a talent for twisting what someone says so that it becomes totally unrecognizable.

    I just find it quite amusing that one of our most rabid anti-Christian trolls is so desperately bent on turning Buttigieg into a "sincere Christian", even if he has to totally make things up.

    You should know better by now than to attempt to pin Michel down on anything.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. Ė St. John Chrysostom
