Buttigieg tells Pence: My marriage ’has moved me closer to God’

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 presidential hopeful, took potshots at VP Mike Pence Sunday regarding his sexuality, telling Pence his marriage to a man has moved him ’closer to God’. ’Your quarrel is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator’, Buttigieg said during a speech at the LGBTQ Victory Fund’s annual brunch. Pence has opposed legalizing gay marriage.

As a Gay Christian Trump supporter I have no quarrel with Mike Pence. Everyone is entitled to his or her beliefs. Personally I do believe homosexuality is a sin BUT Jesus died on the cross to forgive us of our sins to allow us into heaven. Sin is intrinsic in all of us. Jesus forgave Magdalene a temptress of lust and corrupter of men something I would find more damnble then most other sins because you're corrupting another person. If Jesus forgave a person thats corrupts men into having sex and betraying their vows I'm sure he'd forgive two men who simply love each other.

Going back to the" I was created this way" actually destroys the argument that many liberals are now making, sexuality is a social issue.

"God made me this way" is the same excuse pedophiles use Mr. Buttgig. There's no gay gene, you weren't made gay, you want to be gay and draw pleasure from it, I don't know what God you're closer to but it's clearly not the Christian God.

The thing I don’t get is that while gay sex is a sin, so is any heterosexual sex not for the purpose of conception. So we’re all more or less guilty of the same sin here and I don’t get why people only hold it against gays.

Who cares! Imagine you have a religion that says killing people is not ok, the people of that religion don’t kill people, somebody says “killing people has brought me closer to god”.... so? Good for you! You want to speak to the pope? maybe you could get him to change the Bible based on your experience! And bringing mike pence into this???

While I don't have a problem with Christianity for the most part, I find it problematic that there is a 'sex is sinful' culture that seeped into the western world's cultural subconscious. Especially because this attitude got started when Christianity spread to ancient Greece and the philosophers who were the early adopters believed one should focus on the mind and spirit over the body. Before that Jesus Christ really on said people should be monogamous.

God has also showed me he made me gay so I would find him. Since I was a child I knew being gay was "bad", I would beg God every night to fix me in crying tears- he would not, and showed me he made me this way- and that I AM is NEVER wrong in what he does. God used it because he knew it would bring me to him in prayer, at 12, when most kids don't think twice about him. God is love, therefore love can never be wrong- now gay people don't like to consider this, but being gay is not wrong- I'm not sure about the sex part yet. Ill say this though, if gay sex is continual sin, so are the other commandments, adultery (cheating, divorce, premarital sex, lusting for another, etc.)- so if your divorced, you sin every second you remain divorced- lieing, swearing, idols, etc. We all live in continual sin, whether we know it or not. Jesus is our salvation out of our sinful lives.

"More humane?" More focus on human desires than Godly ones, more like. Which isn't the point of religious faith to be focused on God not man?

Does this app link to actual news articles anymore? No one gives a fuck about this booty-judge guy. Republicans would rather have Bootyjudge making headlines than Bernie. Bernie gets our base out to vote. Bootyjudge doesn’t. Conservatives should be very scared of Bernie. Did you see him march right into the lion’s den on Fox news and watch the crowd cheer for him? Conservatives should be very happy whenever a fluff piece like this one for Bootyjudge comes out. Conservatives should try pushing harder for corporatist robots like Harris and Booker. Conservatives should try to come to Biden’s aid especially now after this controversy because a candidate like Biden will divide the vote. Conservatives know this and that’s why they are pretending Bernie’s numbers are smaller than they really are. That’s why Rush Limbaugh is trying to fool people into thinking that Beto is the Democratic frontrunner. If they can convince you Bernie will lose then maybe he will lose. It’s pretty easy to see through this tactic though if you even just take a quick glance at Bernie’s numbers. Still liberal media takes the bait and does fluff pieces like this on nobodies while grilling Bernie because he isn’t for “open borders” 😂😂😂. Liberals are tired of electing limp dick centrists like Obama and Bootyjudge. If Bernie makes it to the general election then Trump will lose. No contest. The polling sides with Bernie on so many issues. And it’s going to be an extremely easy election if all conservatives can say in a debate is “Socialist! Venezuela! Raising my taxes!” Bernie will mop the floor with you.
