LaBarbera: 'Mayor Pete' campaign a disaster in the making

Pete Buttigieg (Indiana mayor)A pro-family activist who works to expose the truth about homosexuality says conservatives need to be watching out for the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who wants to be the first homosexual president.

During one of his recent radio broadcasts, talk-show icon Rush Limbaugh said "Watch out for Mayor Pete." He was referring to Pete Buttigieg (pictured), who recently finished third in an Emerson Democratic poll in Iowa, trailing only former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders. And a Fox News interview today revealed that via social media buzz and surges in recent polls, Buttigieg's successful rollout has raised "a ton of money" for his campaign.

Peter LaBarbera is founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality. He points out that Buttigieg, 37, hopes to appeal to younger Millennial voters.

LaBarbera, Peter"I think conservatives should be watching out for Buttigieg because he's young, [he's] charismatic, he's homosexual," states LaBarbera. "So the Millennials will be inclined to support him because [they] are so lost on that issue [of homosexuality]. He's got all the things that Millennials like and the media will support him, so we have to watch out for this guy – and we've got to expose him."

According to LaBarbera, it would be disastrous if Buttigieg, a homosexual activist, somehow got elected.

"He's proudly gay and he talks about it in his book. He talks about his – quote, unquote – 'husband,'" the family advocate continues. "I mean, the president is a role model – and imagine if you had a [homosexual] president and instead of having a first lady you had a 'first husband' for a man?"

Should that ever happen, LaBarbera says it would be "symbolic of America's utter moral depravity and our moral decline [and] how we have fallen.

"If that ever happens," he concludes, "it will be the ultimate sign that America has kicked God to the curb."

South Bend Tribune identifies Buttigieg's "partner" as Chasten Glezman, and reports that the two were "married" in June 2018.
