Skip to comments.Buttigieg responds to protesters yelling about 'Sodom and Gomorrah'

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg (D) was recently confronted by two protesters shouting about the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Two protesters interrupted Buttigieg, who is openly gay, during a speech in Fort Dodge, Iowa, shouting about the two cities that the Bible says were destroyed by what it calls sinful acts, including sodomy. They were both quickly shouted down by a crowd of 1,650 people chanting the South Bend, Ind., mayors name and escorted out of the area by security.
ADVERTISEMENT "The good news is the condition of my soul is in the hands of God, but the Iowa caucuses are up to you," Buttigieg said after the first protester was ushered away from the crowd.
"Remember the beauty of our democracy. Everyone here gets the exact same voice and vote. Feels like the numbers are on our side," he added after the second protester was removed.
When asked for further comment regarding the protesters, Buttigiegs campaign directed The Hill to the candidates statements during the event.
Buttigiegs sexual orientation has been thrust into the spotlight in recent days as he feuds with Vice President Pence over the former Indiana governors stances on the LGBTQ community. He was particularly critical of a 2015 law Pence signed that allowed businesses to use religious liberty as a defense if they believed the government was infringing on their exercise of religion. Critics said the law would allow businesses to discriminate against the LGBTQ community.
The vice president is entitled to his religious beliefs, Buttigieg said Tuesday on CNNs New Day. My problem is when those religious beliefs are used as an excuse to harm other people.

Hes very pious to be so disgusting.
The rabid leftist media are promoting this guy to the hilt. He is going nowhere. When it comes to the ballot box, no sane Christian of any denomination will vote for this sodomite. The problem is sanity—do we still have it?
Yep, zero evangelical votes.
“Buttigiegs sexual orientation has been thrust into the spotlight...”
That’s the only thing he’s running on or why the small town mayor running for president gets any coverage.
Many Blacks will not vote for him if he were the nominee.
Butt Gig is a dangerous sort. Just like Jerry Brown he creates straw men, or issues such as his assault on our V.P., and attempts to disparage via mocking, and condescension.
Such tactics are proven effective when used on the unwary.
“harm other people.
Who, exactly, is being harmed? I don’t see him being beaten up, ridiculed, or forced back in the closet.
There's the leftist, fake-ass media again with this crap. There is no feud. Pence said absolutely zippo about this clown.
The Mayor is using Pence's name as bait. He wants Pence to make a statement, so then the fake news can scream that Pence is a homophobe and hates gay people, and then a hashtag will magically pop up saying #StandwithMayorPete or something....you get the idea.
The ick factor will have to be over comed.
Yeah, the media knows there’s ‘nothing there.’
But maybe they’ll get some clicks for their advertisers....
Wait a minute. Buttigieg is a homosexual? Knock me down with a feather!
“Buttigiegs sexual orientation has been thrust into ...”
Poor choice of wording. Or, perhaps purposeful. If so, SICK choice of wording. IMHO
Buttgigger will be out of this before the first primary.
He’s proud of his sin.
