Pete Buttigieg, mayor of the city of South Bend in the state of in, who's a gay Episcopalian Christian who seeks the Democratic Party's nomination for the 2020 U.S. presidential election, has delivered a verbal broadside against Evangelical Christians who support President Donald Trump, labelling their actions as "hypocrisy".

The South Bend mayor invoked the name of the former IN governor during a speech last weekend at the LGBTQ Victory Fund IN Washington, D.C.

President Donald Trump's faith adviser Tony Perkins has hit back at Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg for claiming God made him gay.

Buttigieg has used Pence as a high-profile example of a Christian whose biblical view on sexuality and marriage is damaging to the LGBTQ community.

"And that's the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand", he continued. "Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator". If he were here, you would think he's a nice guy to your face. "We have a great working relationship, and I see him as a dedicated public servant and a patriot'".

Meet the Genius Behind the First Black Hole Image
The first ever image of a black hole was widely shared this week, thanks to the work of The National Science Foundation and Dr. While only six observatories are now signed up to the project, more are expected to join in months to come, according to MIT.

Pete then responded, "So, I can think of no better place than here except one, which is my hometown".

Mrs. Pence said her husband does not have a problem with Buttigieg in the first place.

Said Pence: "I worked very closely with Mayor Pete when I was governor of the state of Indiana".

Buttigieg has said his decision to come out as gay was influenced by Vice President Pence's signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act when Pence was governor. According to the Indianapolis Star, "a noticeably moved Pence called Buttigieg the day he was driving to the base".

Bizarrely, Pence had not issued any comments to provoke such pointed remarks. "Pence is remarkably tolerant in every sense of the word, separating his personal religious views from his personal and professional relationships in a way as to not impose on anyone else", Greene argued in a piece at The Federalist.
