Gospel of Matthew’s Message Rings Loudly for Some 2020 Dems

posted on February 13, 2020

The Associated Press’s Elana Schor reports that Democratic candidates continue to utilize a popular Bible passage, Matthew 25, for their campaigns. Pete Buttigieg used the verses in a television ad in South Carolina, saying, “Whatever happened to, ‘I was hungry and you fed me? I was a stranger and you welcomed me?’” According to Schor, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has also cited Matthew 25 “more than a half-dozen times in public forums since her campaign started, including last week at a New Hampshire town hall when she urged a more compassionate immigration policy.”
