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.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
