Openly-gay Democrat presidential candidate and mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttigieg, has drawn criticism for declaring that his same sex-marriage has moved him closer to God, and telling Vice President Mike Pence and conservative Christians to quarrel with God if they have a problem with his homosexuality.
"My marriage to Chasten has made me a better man and yes, Mr. Vice President, it has moved me closer to God," Buttigieg declared during a speech at the LGBT Victory Fund's annual brunch in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, according to USA Today. "And that's the thing I wish the Mike Pence's of the world would understand, that if you've got a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator."
Buttigieg, 37, who is a veteran, a Rhodes scholar and graduate of Harvard, lives with his husband, Chasten, in the same South Bend neighborhood where he grew up, with their two rescue dogs, Truman and Buddy.
Last month, during a Q&A at The South by Southwest Conference & Festivals in Austin, Texas, he said he tries to live a life that is consistent with Christian teachings and questioned whether Pence truly believes in Scripture.
First of all I try to live a life that is consistent with Christian teachings. I know that it is my responsibility not to ever do anything that would in public life, not be equally beneficial or make as much sense to people of another faith or people of no faith. But in my life I believe in that Christian ethic, the idea that was drilled into me in Catholic school even though Im not Catholic, Im Episcopalian, he said.

“Gay marriage”?! No such thing. A “union” yes. Marriage, no. This is up there with calling the USA a democracy.
One Day he will be ‘closer to God’............right in front of Him, in fact..................
He is running against all traditional organized religion, with perhaps the exception of popie Frankie’s defenders, and “liberal” Jews.
SIN made you what you are Pete.
You are a result of Adam’s curse.
Romans 5:12-21 12Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned- 13To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law. 14Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come. 15But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! 18Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous. 20The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our LORD.
If he knew anything about Christianity or the Bible he’d change his stripes.
I dont think the meeting will be as pleasant as he thinks it will be.
I sincerely hope that he has a come to Jesus moment before he meets his maker on his judgment day... he will find out that there are no arguments allowed.
Buttgeek looks creepy, the other faggot looks like a complete airhead.
Gays are like ex-smokers. Always in your face about their new-found way of life. It’s not a badge of honor and it’s not my business. Live and let live
I agree that it has made him closer to god.......the god of this world.
He knows as much about getting closer to God as I do about interior decorating/hairdressing/fashion design.
Braveheart fan here.
Longshanks: “Whom do I send? Not my gentle son. The mere sight of him would only encourage an enemy to take over the whole country...”
I beg to differ Mr Butt-kick. Your professed homosexuality is a slap in the face to Christian teachings.
