Glezman: Buttigieg is misrepresenting scripture to push pro-abortion agenda


>>Tucker: ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, MAYOR PETE BUTTIGIEG FREQUENTLY USES RELIGIOUS RHETORIC. HE SAYS AMERICAN POLITICS CAN BE INVITED INTO THE PEOPLE AND DISSENTERS AND YOU CAN GUESS WHICH SIDE REPUBLICANS ARE ON. NOW MAYOR PETE IS GETTING INTO BIBLICAL SCHOLARSHIP AS WELL. IN A RECENT INTERVIEW HE EXPLAINED HOW ACTUALLY THE BIBLE SAYS THAT UNBORN CHILDREN ARE NOT ALIVE AND SO ABORTION IS OKAY.>>YOU GO THROUGH THE NEW TESTAMENT, SURE, AND EVERY OTHER WORD THAT COMES OUT OF THE MOUTH OF CHRIST IS ABOUT THINGS LIKE OPEN THOSE IN NEED AND YOU GOT A REPUBLICAN PARTY DEDICATED TO ITS OPPOSITE. THERE WILL BE A RECKONING OVER IT. RIGHT NOW THEY HOLD EVERYBODY IN LINE WITH THIS ONE KIND OF PEACE OF DOCTRINE ABOUT ABORTION, RIGHT? WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY A TOUGH ISSUE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE. THEN AGAIN, AS A LOT OF PARTS OF THE BIBLE TO TALK ABOUT LIFE BEGINS WITH BREATH AND SO EVEN THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN INTERPRET DIFFERENTLY.>>Tucker: AT RYAN GLASSMAN IS SENIOR PASTOR A COMMUNITY CHURCH OF GOD IN CLEO MICHIGAN, HE IS ALSO THE BROTHER-IN-LAW OF MAYOR BUTTIGIEG AND CALLED ON HIS BROTHER TO REPENT AFTER HIS LATEST REMARKS. JOINS US TONIGHT. THANKS FOR COMING ON. YOU ARE, BY YOUR OWN DESCRIPTION, NONPOLITICAL, AND ARE NOT SEEKING TO ATTACK YOUR BROTHER-IN-LAW, BUT I FELT IT WOULD BE WORTH GETTING A REVIEW OF THE THEOLOGY INVOLVED IN THIS EXPLANATION OF ABORTION. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT?>>ABSOLUTELY, THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY AND I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A PLEA TO PETE BUTTIGIEG, MY BROTHER-IN-LAW, THAT WE HE WOULD RECONSIDER HIS POSITION AND THE WAY HE HAS MISREPRESENTED SCRIPTURE TO PUSH THIS PRO-ABORTION PLATFORM THAT HE’S PUSHING. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A PLEA WITH HIM THAT HE WOULD RECONSIDER AND ACTUALLY OPEN HIS BIBLE. I ACTUALLY ASK ALL PEOPLE TO OPEN UP THEIR BIBLES AS THEY ARE WATCHING THIS IN TURN TO PSALM 1:30 NINE, SPECIFICALLY VERSES 13 THROUGH 16 AND HOW CAN YOU READ THOSE PASSAGES THAT TALKS ABOUT WE ARE FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD, INTRINSICALLY WE ARE WOVEN TOGETHER IN THE WOMAN’S WOMB. I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU CAN READ THAT AND COME OUT OF THAT WITH ANY OTHER UNDERSTANDING THAT LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION AND WHAT’S EVEN MORE ALARMING IS THAT THOSE QUESTIONS WILL WITHSTAND LIKE MAYOR PETE WOULD AND SAY THAT GOD CONDONES — THAT GOD SAYS THAT ABORTION IS OKAY ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE. THAT’S JUST ABSURD AND OUTLANDISH TO ME.>>Tucker: SO HIS CONTENTION, AS I AM INTERPRETING IT, IS THAT THE NEW TESTAMENT SAYS THAT ABORTION IS FINE UNTIL THE CHILD DRAWS BREATH IN OTHER WORDS, REALLY THROUGH THE END OF THE THIRD TRIMESTER. DO YOU — I JUST WANT TO BE ABSOLUTELY CLEAR ON THIS, IS THERE ANY, IN YOUR VIEW, CHRISTIAN INTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE THAT LEADS TO THAT CONCLUSION?>>ABSOLUTELY NOT. I WOULD JUST ENCOURAGE ALL PEOPLE TO LOOK AT SCRIPTURE — AGAIN, BACK TO PSALM 1:30 NINE, THAT WE ARE CREATED AND LIFE BEGINS AT CONCEPTION. WE NEED TO GET AWAY — THIS ISN’T A POLITICAL THING TO ME, THIS IS A SPIRITUAL THING TO ME AND THIS ISN’T THE DIAL OF — THIS IS A GOD ISSUE. THIS IS A SPIRITUAL — NOT A POLITICAL ISSUE AND TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, THIS ISN’T EVEN MY OPINION OR PETE’S OPINION. THIS IS WHAT DOES GOD SAY, WHAT DOES THE WORD OF GOD TRULY SAY IN THE BIBLE IS JUST BEING MISREPRESENTED AND MISUSED TO PUSH A PRO-ABORTION AGENDA AND THAT IS ALARMING, IT’S DISGUSTING, IT’S FRIGHTENING AND IT NEEDS TO STOP.>>Tucker: IT IS ALL OF THOSE THINGS, I AGREE WITH YOU COMPLETELY. HAVING SAID THIS TO YOUR BROTHER-IN-LAW?>>I HAVE NOT SPOKEN THIS DIRECTLY — I HOPE HE SEES THIS. I HOPE ALL PEOPLE WATCH THIS AND HE WILL RECONSIDER, HE WILL CHANGE HIS POSITION, HE WILL ACTUALLY OPEN UP THE BIBLE AND READ THROUGH SCRIPTURE, WHAT SCRIPTURE ACTUALLY SAYS. WE NEED TO CREATE A CULTURE THAT SPEAKS OF HUMAN LIFE AND HUMAN BEINGS WHO HAVE VALUE. WE ARE COMMANDED BY CHRIST HIMSELF TO UPHOLD THE DIGNITY AND RESPECT OF ALL HUMAN LIFE. WE NEED TO STAND FOR ALL THE BORN AND ALL THE UNBORN.>>Tucker: SO, YOU JUST SAID YOU WOULD ASK YOUR BROTHER-IN-LAW TO OPEN UP SCRIPTURE AND READ THIS. HIS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, AS I’VE BEEN WATCHING IT, IS BASED ON THE IDEA THAT HE IS DEEPLY VERSED IN SCRIPTURE, THAT HE IS A DEEPLY CHRISTIAN MAN, HE IS RUNNING AN EXPLICITLY, HE SAYS, CHRISTIAN CAMPAIGN.>>I DON’T KNOW HOW ANYONE — WHAT HAPPENS, WE SEE IN SECOND PETER, CHAPTER FOUR, THAT IS A TIME, MORE PEOPLE WILL TURN AWAY FROM DOCTRINE AND ACCUMULATE TEACHING THAT EACH THEIR EARS. BASICALLY WHAT THAT PERSUADES HIS PEOPLE — WE ARE LIVING IN A TIME NOW AS WE SEE WITH MAYOR PETE, THAT PEOPLE ARE DRIFTING AWAY FROM SOUND DOCTRINE TO MAKE THE SCRIPTURE SAY WHATEVER THEY WANT TO DO TO MANIPULATE AND DISTORT CHRISTIANITY AND WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS TO MAKE THEIR OWN DESIRES AND OWN PLEASURE. REALLY IT BOILS DOWN TO THIS, IS WHAT I BELIEVE, PEOPLE EITHER SEEK POWER WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO STAND UP FOR THE POWERLESS AND PEOPLE — THE BABY IN THE WOMB — IN THE MOTHER’S WOMB IS POWERLESS. IT’S THE MOST VULNERABLE PERSON, HUMAN LIFE, AND SO PEOPLE HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION. PETE HAS TO MAKE A DECISION, ARE YOU GOING TO STAND UP FOR THE MOST VULNERABLE ARE YOU GOING TO SEEK THE POWER AND DISTORT SCRIPTURE TO MEET YOUR OWN POLITICAL AGENDA THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE SEEING NOT JUST WITH PETE, WITH THE WHOLE DEMOCRATIC, RIGHT ON THE LINE.>>Tucker: THAT’S EXACTLY RIGHT. I THINK IT’S NICELY PUT. LET ME JUST AND ON THIS, PETE BUTTIGIEG IS MARRIED TO YOUR BROTHER. HAVE YOU SPOKEN TO HIM ABOUT THIS?>>I AM VERY OPEN ABOUT ALL OF THIS. AND I HOPE ALL OF THEM SEE THIS. I AM VERY UNASHAMED OF THE GOOD NEWS OF. I’M A PASTOR, I SHARE THE GOSPEL. POLITICS IS SECONDARY TO ME, I’M ABOUT SHARING THE GOOD NEWS OF CHRIST AND I HOPE PEOPLE WATCHING THIS — I REALLY — I CHALLENGE AMERICANS AS THESE DEMOCRATIC DEBATES COME UP HERE IN A COUPLE OF DAYS AND I’M ASSUMING THIS TOPIC IS GOING TO BE BROUGHT UP, THE PEOPLE WOULD STOP AND ACTUALLY THINK AND ACTUALLY THINK, WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT? WE ARE WITH HUMAN LIFE HERE. WE’RE NOT TALKING ABOUT JUST A LITTLE BLOB OF CELLS, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HUMAN LIFE, AND ARE WE GOING TO STAND UP FOR THE DIGNITY AND RESPECT — WHEN PEOPLE STOP AND REALLY THINK WHAT DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE, NOT WHAT YOUR PARTY BELIEVES. IT WOULD BE WONDERFUL TO SEE A DEMOCRAT — I’M NOT GOING TO GOING ON THE TRAIL LEVELED THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO VOTE ON, I THINK LIFE IN THE WOMB IS VALUABLE AND HAS INTRINSIC VALUE AND I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOMEONE STAND UP AND DO THAT.>>Tucker: DEMOCRATS SAY SHE
