Mike Pence says Mayor Pete is attacking 'my Christian faith'

Source: Washington Examiner | April 12, 2019 | Daniel Jativa

Vice President Mike Pence accused Democratic White House hopeful Pete Buttigieg of attacking his Christian faith, as the two men spent the week trading increasingly personal barbs.

“I hope that Pete will offer more to the American people than attacks on my Christian faith or attacks on the president as he seeks the highest office in the land,” Pence said in an interview on CNN. “He’d do well to reflect on the importance of respecting the freedom of religion of every American.”

Pence, who was Indiana governor from 2013 to 2017, said he and Buttigieg, mayor of the state’s fourth-largest city, South Bend, “worked very closely together when I was governor, and I considered him a friend. And he knows I don’t have a problem with him.”

Pence was referring to comments Buttigieg made about his homosexuality in which he called out the vice president.

“If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade,” Buttigieg said Sunday. “And that’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand. That if you got a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me — your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”

Buttigieg added that marrying his husband “has made me a better man, and yes, Mr. Vice President, it has moved me closer to God.” He also accused Pence of being “the cheerleader of the porn star presidency” and “at best complicit” in the rise of white nationalism.

When asked to respond to Buttigieg’s remarks, Pence told CNN that “all of us have our own religious convictions. Pete has his convictions, I have mine.” He continued, “I think Pete’s quarrel is with the First Amendment. All of us in this country have the right to our religious beliefs. I’m a Bible-believing Christian.”

    “I’m a Bible-believing Christian”

    He must have missed the part about lying. He does plenty of that for Trump. What a phony Pence is!

    Buttigieg has never fully read the Bible, if he can say with a straight face that his relationship with his “husband” makes him a stronger man of faith. His faith is NOT in the Biblical Jesus or God, as the Scriptures have absolutely NO verses that make any room for the accommodation of homosexuality or any of this gender nonsense.

    There is a “gay” bible out there, which I am sure reinterprets these passages to be gay-friendly, instead of telling them the absolute Truth so that they might be lead to the real Savior in repentance. Tolerance is not a doctrine of the Bible. Nor should it be of Christianity. Tolerance today has lost its real meaning and really has a new meaning that you must accept as fact the aberrant doctrines of the lost and keep your mouth shut about the Truth. That is the new definition of tolerance.

    Mike, don’t forsake or give in. Remember that you will not stand before men as your judge in the end, but Jesus. We will give an answer to Him. Once we start to cave, thinking we are giving just a little, it balloons into a much larger problem. We will never go wrong sticking to the Truth. We were warned that we will be brought before counsels and kings for our testimony, but to stand strong. To fear Him who has the power over our souls, not the one whose only power is to to take this earthen vessel out of use. It will die, anyway.

    Pray for righteousness to be restored and for the peace of Jerusalem

    IMHO Mike Pence should not have even responded to Buttigieg’s remarks. Buttigieg is just a one issue candidate catering to one segment of the population — perverts like himself. I believe that without more to offer to more people, Buttigieg’s campaign is going to fall flat on his own.

    In the end we are all going to be judged by a Being far greater than any of us. Pence should be more concerned about that judgment than the one issued by this lowlife Buttigieg.
