    Many events will have to take place for Pete Buttigieg to get the nomination, but I want to focus on only one. Will he be able to produce a large showing among Christian moderates?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Think his issue is diversity of the the vote. He’s polling third or forth in SC. Biden still shows leading by a larger margin there. Pete has to show strength in the South.

    I think everything will change in the South. I don't know if it will be enough to help Biden. I really don't think Biden or Sanders can beat Trump. They give Trump too much ammunition.

    Are you thinking Pete can beat Donald if maybe Trump will mock Pete's sexuality and the backlash may affect Trump's prospects?

    The people who would vote against him for his sexuality are already voting for Trump.

    True but it also would stir up voters too lazy ordinarily to vote. And as for those who would agree with Trump, I'll bet none of them saw Don kneeling and drawing in the dirt and then saying I don't condemn you, go and sin no more.

    On my paper route, there is a house with a banner that reads, "Democrats for Trump." I don't think that anyone wants the return of jobs to stop; at least, no sooner than it has to.

    Trump doesn't need to mock his sexuality, just his name, his record, his positions, and his relative inexperience.

    I doubt it. Trump appointed Grennell as ambassador to Germany, our first openly gay ambassador (who's doing a good job, btw). Trump is advocating on the world stage to have countries remove persecution against gays. On what grounds then would he attack Buttagieg's gayness?

    Besides, I think he's smarter than that. There's plenty to go after besides PB's sexual inclinations.

    Election no holds barred mockery of a threat to the throne plus his love of insulting nicknames.

    If Trump thinks it will help him win, he will do it. The win is all that matters to him.

    Only if Christian moderates utterly abandon scripture in order to justify voting for a pro-abortion sodomite.

    I can truthfully say that there was not a hint of love or acceptance on that sentence.

    There is no love in accepting that which is evil. Mayor Pete needs to repent and leave homosexual conduct in the past. Christians have no business denying God's law and celebrating that which God calls an abomination.

    We aren't electing first ladies, we are electing a president.

    One comes with the other. Do you fear his?
