Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg blasted Vice President Mike Pence and other Christian politicians this week for adopting what he charged were un-Christian political stances. Asked by Religion News whether he would call “sinful” those Christian politicians who supported the Trump administration’s since-scrapped policy of separating families arrested after crossing the southern border illegally, Buttigieg declined to go that far. “I’ll be careful to use that word to kind of point out a speck in my brother’s eye,” the South Bend, Ind. mayor replied. “What I would say is that it’s clear that some naked sins are being at best

It looks like Drudge's Pretty Pete is planning to add "venomous" to "homosexual" as his qualifications for presidency. I don't think that adds much.

So, what happens in South Bend IN when an American citizen, who is a parent is jailed? Are their children jailed with them? Do the parents receive a 'get out of jail free' card? How are the children not separated from their children under Pete's leadership? I did not see that mentioned in the article.

A few remarks: First, he sounds like a child, ignorant and whiney. Next, he says he's taking a tiny speck out of VP Pence's eye? Does he not understand that he still doesn't know that he has a log in his own? For a self-important egotist, he has little self-awareness. He's judgmental and hypocritical. As far as I know, Mike Pence has never said a critical word against Buttie. An egotist thinks everyone is always talking about him. "Naked sins"? sounds like he's got his mind on other things... Then, to accuse people of thinking that "God smiles on" the policy (begun during the Obama Admin.), who are trying to end the crisis at the border, where adults are found with children who are NOT their own, and young girls have been in the predatory grip of men, is utterly ridiculous. In the end, Buttie is a vain man who speaks in clichés and points his finger at others judgmentally as a huge log hangs out of his eyes.

How special. A homosexual, who practices what God describes as abominations, denouncing the hypocrisy of Christians. The devil always likes to point out the failings of Christians to live up to their beliefs. Alinsky did the same thing. That's alright, you demons. We know we are sinners and do not always live up to Gods standards. We don't need The Accuser to tell us so.

We are all sinners who fall short of glory. Scripture tell us "there is none righteous, no, not one". Scripture also says "Do not judge, lest you be judged"--its not up to us--Only God will judge. I'm just a sinner saved by grace. Only the Almighty can judge me at the Great White Throne, but my name is in the Book of Life and Christ has given a free gift that He won't take back. Praise God!

"The check's in the mail" is a promise that payment's been sent even if it hasn't. It's a stalling tactic to avoid pressure from creditors, from those expecting payment. That's the scam our government is running on the American people today, a ruse to tamp down expectations of justice. We all know that the FBI used an unverifiable document, the Steele dossier, to get a warrant to spy on Trump using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). This dossier was used to start a counterintelligence operation to plant spies in Trump's campaign, to get a special counsel to impeach the president.

Hurricane Dorian, a Category 4 with 140 mph winds as of early Saturday, is not expected to make landfall in Florida and instead will track up the coastline, possibly slamming into the Carolinas late Wednesday. Earlier projections had it hitting Florida head on as early as Monday. Areas all along the coast still are bracing for storm surge, heavy rain and dangerous, gusty winds. Other forecasts have the storm not making landfall at all in the U.S. A high-pressure system in the Atlantic is helping push the storm north. If Dorian remains farther off shore, parts of Florida may see only up to 10 inches of rain, significantly lower than earlier forecasts.

Some told him it was too risky, but Biden said he brushed off their concerns. “We can lose a vice president,” he said. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” The Navy captain, Biden recalled Friday night, had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and retrieved the body of an American comrade,
