Pierce Bush is facing increased scrutiny for some comments he made in which he compared American Christians to Muslim terrorists.
Bush is the latest member of the infamous Bush family to run for higher office, as he seeks election in Texas’s 22nd Congressional District.
Cary Cheshire of Texas Scorecard noted that Bush wrote a letter to the Houston Chronicle, criticizing the Roman Catholic Church’s election of Pope Benedict XVI.
“With the election of Pope Benedict XVI, Christians around the world will most likely not be able to look forward to needed reforms within the Catholic Church. There are two major areas of reform that are needed to accommodate our progressive world society,” said Bush.
Bush even argued that the Catholic Church must change in order to “accommodate our progressive world society.”
According to his newspaper submission, Pierce Bush’s biggest gripe with the Catholic Church is that it does not ordain women.
“In a religion that preaches equality among all people, the Catholic Church is locked into a stone-age mentality by not allowing women to be ordained as priests,” wrote Bush. “Frankly, it is rather Talibanesque.”
However, Cheshire noted that the Catholic Church isn’t the only church that bars the ordination of women. He reminded readers that “the majority of American Christians attend a church that prohibits that as well.”
Southern Baptists, who are the second-largest Christians denomination next to Catholics, are also opposed to the ordination of women.
Cheshire also pointed out the following:
The Missouri Synod Lutherans, the vast majority of Churches of Christ, the Presbyterian Church in America, most bible churches, cowboy churches, and non-denominational churches do as well. Added together, the majority of American Christians attend a church that does not ordain women.
Further, Bush called for ending priest celibacy.
Conservative Catholics like Texas Right to Life’s Jim Graham have opposed this move for years.
“Texas and the conservative movement do not need a Bush in a position of power working toward the liberalization of the Catholic Church―or any faith, for that matter,” Graham told Church Militant, who first broke this story.
Additionally, Pierce Bush has held Never Trump views on immigration.
Back in December, The Daily Caller revealed that Bush participated in an anti-Donald Trump protest march right after the president’s inauguration. Bush was in attendance as protester of President Trump’s proposed immigration restrictions.
“No ban. No fear. Refugees are welcome here. #nationofimmigrants #diversityisourstrength,” he posted to Facebook.
Although, he has co-opted the MAGA message on border security, his family history should still make voters hesitant about his candidacy.
How many times have we seen candidates talk tough on the campaign trail and later become total sellouts while in office?
Conservative voters would be wise to avoid Pierce Bush during the GOP primary.
America does not need to perpetuate this political dynasty of globalism.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump
Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.
Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.
On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.
“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto. “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not, he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”
Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil. No, no, it’s not true. I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”
“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019. Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.
The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago. According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.
Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.
However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
