The evangelist finds himself out of step with a clear majority of Americans who say they are not bothered by the prospect of a presidential candidate who is gay or lesbian. "I think that's how we got where we are".

Graham, who is the CEO of Samaritan's Purse, an global Christian relief organization, continued to reference the bible to support his assertion that gay marriage has no place in society.

Christian conservative Franklin Graham has called on presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg to repent for being gay, warning that he faces eternal damnation for "flaunting" his sexuality.

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg (BOO'-tuh-juhj) is planning to focus on outreach to African American voters during an upcoming trip to SC.

Grenell had called Buttigieg's accusations of homophobia against the vice president a "hate hoax along the lines of Jussie Smollett", but on Monday night, during a CNN Town Hall, Buttigieg, who like Grenell is openly gay, said he wasn't going to respond to the ambassador's comment.

Even with that reassurance residents feel that Buttigieg could be doing more in what is considered a small city, population 100,000, to get to know all of the areas and there needs.

Turkish police said that he was planning an attack in retaliation for last month's mosque massacres in Christchurch, New Zealand. Tweed River High School student Emily Bradford said Anzac Day remained as important as ever in 2019.

Graham, who preached at President Donald Trump's inauguration in January 2017, hit out at Buttigieg in a Facebook post on Tuesday (April 23), claiming: "God's Word defines homosexuality as sin, something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised, or politicized".

Oh shut up, just shut up Franklin Graham!

Buttigieg's campaign manager, Mike Schmuhl, said in an email Friday that the campaign will send back $30,250 it had received from 39 individuals. "And yes, Mr. Vice President, it has moved me closer to God". When asked about allegations that Trump had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels, he said previous year: 'President Trump I don't think has admitted to having an affair with this person'. Others include former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders.

The truth is that public figures have been using their public platforms to attack evangelical and Roman Catholic Christianity more and more, in increasingly strident tones.

"If Buttigieg was pro-life and gay that would be very interesting", Fea said.
