Heeding the advice of Fr. Martin, Mayor Pete of South Bend announced his 2020 run for president on Palm Sunday. Interestingly, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame burns the next day.
Is God warning America of what might happen if America elects a gay president? Mayor Peter reminds me of King Saul. Like King Saul, he possesses every qualification and more. Like King Saul, Pete’s dad (Dr. Joseph) was a very important person. Dr. Joseph Buttigieg was a literary scholar at Notre-Dame. The University of Notre Dame famously ask pro-choice activist Mario Cuomo to speak on Religious belief. Today, the Catholic church reminds me of the nation of Israel during the final days of the prophet Samuel.
I Samuel 8 states:
When Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons as Israel’s leaders.[a]2 The name of his firstborn was Joel and the name of his second was Abijah, and they served at Beersheba. 3 But his sons did not follow his ways. They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice.
Clearly, the sons of the founders of Notre Dame did not follow the ways of its founder, St. Peter. Mayor Pete appeals to His creator to support his gay lifestyle. And yet, if natural law tells us anything, it’s completely contrary to God’s creation.
If America elects Mayor Pete, expect a conflagration even greater than the fire of Notre- Dame.
