South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg blasted "so-called conservative Christian senators" for opposing the minimum wage as Democrats tried to take the moral high ground during the first night of the second round of Democratic presidential primary debates.
"The minimum wage is just too low. And 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 declared in Detroit, Mich. at the FoxTheatre, citing Proverbs 14:31.
Fox News contributor Jonathan Morris said the "so-called" part was "most offensive" during Buttigieg's remarks, stripping Republicans of their faith claims "just because you don't believe my policy is right." He said that it was a low-point for the 37-year-old Democratic presidential hopeful.
"You saw every single candidate was trying to take that moral high ground and say, 'We are the ones that are good and the White House is evil,'" Morris told "Fox & Friends" Wednesday morning, pointing directly to Buttigieg, he added: "I wouldn't say to anyone you are a 'so-called Christian,' right? Unless they say I don't believe in the divinity of Jesus or something, OK."
According to the Democratic presidential candidate's logic, Morris said, because all of them are pushing for a $15 minimum wage, a $25 minimum wage would be "more Christian," but it's not that simple.
First of all, since Mayor Pete represents a party that, as a flag-waver for abortion, a.k.a. baby-killing, which is totally opposed to the Commandment "Thou Shalt Not Murder," he's a fine one to flaunt the Bible.
And second of all, there is a large and growing body of empirical evidence that a $15 minimum wage is causing economic havoc among low-paid laborers in this country. People who normally would be picking up low-paying jobs are now finding those jobs no longer exist, because it does not make economic sense for employers to pay unskilled or marginally-skilled people fifteen dollars an hour to perform them.
So it is the Democrats who are "oppressing the poor" and "taunting their Maker." Of course, most of them appear to doubt the very existence of any Supreme Being in the first place, judging by their words and actions, so they think they can get away with it.

Oh, here is another one for Mayor ButtycalL
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
