Pete Buttigieg, the Mayor of South Bend and a 2020 Presidential candidate, has some extreme views on abortion. He also is trying to appeal to Christian voters by saying things like, ‘Abortion is Christian. Therefore, Christians should vote for me’, because honestly, he doesn’t understand Christians. Odd. He’s in South Bend. There’s a great university in South Bend that could teach him the basics of theology. He should take advantage of it.
Anyways, Buttigieg is extreme on abortion, so extreme he fought the opening of a free pregnancy resource center in South Bend, because his funders in the abortion lobby didn’t like that. And recently, he reiterated his support for unlimited abortion and infanticide, all paid for by the taxpayer. Continuing his Quixotean crusade to get Christians to support him, he threw in a bad interpretation of the Bible into the mix (Buttiegieg’s thinking: Christians like the Bible. If I say ‘Bible’ while explaining why I love infanticide, maybe they’ll support me.’ Seriously, this guy is so off the rails that if he worked at a railroad company he’d be fired the first day).
One person that didn’t take too kindly to Buttigieg’s full-throated endorsement of infanticide was his brother-in-law, a pastor.
Here’s what the Washington Examiner reported:
The evangelical brother-in-law of Pete Buttigieg called on him to “repent” for using the Bible to justify late-term abortion and claimed the presidential candidate is “weaponizing” Christian teachings to promote a false religion.
Pastor Rhyan Glezman, 34, who serves a church in small-town Michigan, told the Washington Examiner that he was very alarmed by Buttigieg’s claim that the Bible teaches life does not begin until a baby first draws breath….
I feel a sense of responsibility and stewardship of my faith to stand up and say something, to say, ‘No, that’s not true,'” Glezman explained. “God places a very high value on all human life. Everyone is created fearfully and wonderfully in the image of God with intrinsic value. That doesn’t start at the first breath, it starts when we enter our mother’s womb.”
Glezman asserted that Buttigieg’s use of Scripture to defend abortion up to the point of birth was “outrageous,” adding, “If we’re going to say we’re for all people and we love all people, but we don’t value human life in the womb, that’s being a hypocrite. You’re hypocritical if you don’t stand up for all life. So that’s why I’m speaking out.”
