Morals and values are “grievously missing” from the White House today, gay Democrat Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg said Monday night.
Buttigieg, currently serving as mayor of South Bend, Indiana, made the claim during an appearance of “The Daily Show”:
“But, then, just when you’re having a good laugh about that is the when the phone call comes in about a racially-explosive, officer-involved shooting where you don’t even have all the facts and you’ve got to figure out what to say on television to try to hold the community together.
“What you learn is the job has not just a policy element, not just a management element, but also this intangible part, the moral part of just calling people to their highest values. It’s actually probably the thing we’re most grievously missing right now in the White House, and we really need it.”
But, Christian leaders, such as Reverend Franklin Graham, say that, by practicing homosexuality and gay marriage, Buttigieg is behaving immorally and violating Christian values.
As previously reported by CNSNews.com, Rev. Graham recently rebuked Buttigieg for “ignoring God’s commandments against homosexuality”:
Reverend Franklin Graham criticized Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg, who is openly gay and "married" to another man, for stressing that God does not belong to a political party while ignoring God's commandments against homosexual behavior and so-called gay marriage. Without following God's Word, he said, we have no moral foundation and are at risk of "eternal damnation."
“As a Christian I believe what the Bible says. God’s Word defines homosexuality as sin, something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised, or politicized. The Bible defines marriage as between a man and a woman—not two men, not two women."
