Mike Pence ‘disappointed’ in Pete Buttigieg using his name to debate religious views of LGBTQ people

Bailey Vogt The Washington TimesMay 14, 2019

Vice President Mike Pence said Monday he was “disappointed” that South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has used his name to spark a debate on religious tolerance of LGBTQ people.

Mr. Buttigieg, the openly gay presidential candidate, blasted Mr. Pence in April for his views on homosexuality, telling the vice president his marriage to a man has moved him “closer to God.”

“That’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand: That if you have a problem with who I am, your quarrel is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator,” the Indiana Democrat said.
