A Religion Without Meaning Or Content

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 3, 2019

         ONE OF THE MANY DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES IS THE MAYOR OF SOUTH BEND, INDIANA. HIS NAME IS PETE BUDDHA-JUDGE. A WASHINGTON POST STORY DESCRIBES HIM AS MARRIED TO A MAN HE CALLS HIS “HUSBAND.” IT ALSO SAYS HE WANTS HIS PARTY TO EMBRACE RELIGION, BUT NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF EXCLUDING OTHERS.

         THIS IS A RELIGION MANY POLITICIANS WANT. THEY WANT A RELIGION THAT BLESSES THEIR MANY ANTI-BIBLICAL POLICIES, INCLUDING ABORTION, SAME SEX MARRIAGE AND TRANSGENDERISM IN ORDER TO FOOL PEOPLE INTO BELIEVING THEY ARE JUST AS MORAL AS THE MORE CONSERVATIVE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS OF NAZARETH.

         THIS ISN’T REALLY RELIGION, BECAUSE IT REQUIRES NOTHING OF THE INDIVIDUAL AND SEEKS TO BLESS – THOUGH IT IS A BLESSING WITHOUT GOD’S APPROVAL – ANY LIFESTYLE OR GOVERNMENT PROGRAM THE LEFT SEEKS TO ADVANCE.

         BUDHA-JUDGE IS GETTING A LOT OF ATTENTION AND MILLIONS HAVE BEEN DONATED TO HIS CAMPAIGN. HE IS YOUNG AND ARTICULATE AND HE REPRESENTS THE SPIRIT OF THE AGE IN WHICH ANYTHING GOES. HE IS LIKELY TO DAZZLE IN THE DEBATES AND WILL ATRACT MANY PEOPLE FOR WHOM RELIGION, IF IT IS ANYTHING AT ALL, IS JUST ANOTHER LIFESTYLE CHOICE, BUT WITHOUT MEANING. I’M CAL THOMAS.
