Democratic Mayor Pete Buttigieg Attacks Mike Pence’s Faith… Again
Pete Buttigieg, an openly gay mayor who plans to run for president but has yet to officially declare, continued his personal attacks against Vice President Mike Pence Sunday at the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch in Washington, D.C.
“If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade,” Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana said. “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,” he added.
Pence has become a frequent target of homosexual activists for signing into law the 2015 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which offers religious and freedom of conscience protections for businesses. Critics maintain the law is a free pass to allow discrimination against the LGBTQ community. Just days after signing the law, Pence challenged the “license to discriminate” claims by tweeting out, “If I saw a restaurant owner refuse to serve a gay couple, I wouldn’t eat there anymore.”
Last month, Buttigieg declared Pence had become a “cheerleader of the porn star presidency” during a CNN town hall the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.
At the same festival, Buzzfeed asked the mayor about former Vice President Joe Biden’s assessment that Pence was a “decent guy.” Buttigieg warned that Pence’s demeanor couldn’t be trusted.
