Buttigieg Turns Tables on VP, Tells Pence to Take it Up with God If He Doesn’t Like Pete’s Private Life

This is going to be a major conversation starter in the 2020 election…but can Americans remain civil enough to learn from it?

There is something inherently beautiful about the combination of freedom of speech and freedom of religion that could only manifest itself in a place alike America.

Of course, we are a boisterous crowd of human beings to begin with.  We love our nation, and we’re not afraid to admit it…loudly at times.  We revel in our freedoms, and our pursuit of happiness.  We strive everyday to meet the creed of “all are created equal”, just to prove to the world that this is, in fact, a true statement.

And if you can’t agree with that, my friends, you’re in the wrong place.

So, what happens when an immovable object, such as a person’s sexual identity, meets an unstoppable force, such as someone else’s religion?

Why, a whole lot of heated discussion, that’s what.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 democratic hopeful, is sparking just such a conversation today with his stern rebuke of Vice President Mike Pence’s religious beliefs regarding homosexuality.

Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg on Sunday again took on Vice President Mike Pence — whose stances on LGBTQ issues have faced criticism from gay rights activists — saying that if Pence has “a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me — your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, made the comments while speaking at the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch in Washington. He reflected on his personal struggles with his sexuality, his decision to come out in 2015 and the fact that his being gay is not the result of a personal decision.

“If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade,” Buttigieg 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.”

Buttigieg hasn’t quite been a breakout star of the 2020 races so far, but the recent fizzling of democratic darling Beto O’Rourke could give the midwestern mayor a boost in the polls.

This discussion, however, could be a breakout soundbite of the election, however, as it reminds us that America is strong due to her diversity and unity…just so long as both sides can keep it civil.
