Buttigieg hits 'so-called conservative Christian senators' blocking bill to raise minimum wage

I cannot begin to tell you how offensive it is when people taunt others for not being good Christians because they don't support that person's plan for what government should do. It is particularly offensive when it is clear that the person trying to bully or coerce Christians doesn't seem to know what God taught. God said very little about government. God focused on personal responsibility for yourself and your fellow man.

"In a scathing criticism of Republicans, Pete Buttigieg torched "so-called conservative Christian senators" who are blocking the House-passed bill to raise the minimum wage to $15/hour, warning: "Scripture says that 'Whoever oppresses the poor taunts their maker.'"

"South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) slammed a number of "so-called conservative Christian senators" on Tuesday for blocking legislation to raise the minimum wage, suggesting they were going against God. "So-called conservative Christian senators right now in the Senate are blocking a bill to raise the minimum wage when Scripture says that 'Whoever oppresses the poor taunts their maker,'" Buttigieg said during the Democratic primary debate in Detroit."
