Pete Buttigieg to Mike Pence: 'Your Quarrel Is With My Creator'

Pete Buttigieg to Mike Pence: 'Your Quarrel Is With My Creator'

Buttigieg spoke out against Pence's long-held opposition to same sex marriage during a speech last weekend, saying that his marriage to Chasten Glezman "has moved me closer to God".

Pence also pointed out that, despite his view that marriage should be defined as a union between a man and a woman, he did was he was required to do as governor in implementing gay marriage when the Supreme Court struck down all gay marriage bans in 2015.

"But that doesn't mean that we're critical of anyone who has a different point of view", he added.

Pence shared that he was not surprised by the claims despite the fact that the two worked "very closely" when Pence was the governor of Indiana. The measure ultimately failed in the state legislature. And that's the thing I wish the Mike Pence's of the world could understand, that if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me.

The South Bend mayor invoked the name of the former IN governor during a speech last weekend at the LGBTQ Victory Fund IN Washington, D.C.

Among those expressing indignation with Buttigieg was conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

"To set the record straight, Mr. Mayor", he wrote, "the issue isn't whether somebody has a problem with who you are - the issue is that we all have a problem with God because of our sin".

The right-wing response ignores Pence's long anti-LGBT history, which includes promoting as U.S. House member a Federal Marriage Amendment that would have banned same-sex marriage, signing as IN governor a "religious freedom" bill enabling anti-LGBT discrimination and defending as vice president his wife for teaching at a Christian school that refuses to admit LGBT student or employ LGBT teachers. "We have a great working relationship, and I see him as a dedicated public servant and a patriot'".

Buttigieg has said his decision to come out as gay was influenced by Vice President Pence's signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act when Pence was governor.

"If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade", Buttigieg said Sunday at an LGBT event.

Buttigieg also took a dim view of Vice President Mike Pence's actions, wondering aloud whether the latter "stopped believing in Scripture when he started believing in Donald Trump".
