Buttitieg in a one-sided quarrel with VP Pence

Mike Pence and Pete ButtitiegThe Bible says a soft answer turns away wrath. It's a verse that one person in a public political squabble has taken to heart – and that a person the other side of that squabble might want to review.

Pete Buttitieg, the openly homosexual mayor of South Bend, Indiana and assumed Democratic presidential candidate, has an issue with Vice President Mike Pence's belief in biblical sexuality – and he's been vocal about it:

Buttigieg: "That's the thing I wish the Mike Pence's of the world would understand. If you've got a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my Creator."

The Pence family could yell back about it being inappropriate to criticize someone else's faith, but that's not their style. Karen Pence responded to the comments Tuesday on Fox News Radio's Brian Kilmeade Show.

Kilmeade: "You must have heard that yesterday."

Karen Pence: "It's kind of funny because I don't think the vice president does have a problem with him."

Mike and Karen Pence wavingMrs. Pence pointed out that her husband – the supposedly homophobic former governor of Buttigieg's home state of Indiana – had a very unbigoted comment when Mayor Pete publicly announced in 2015 that he was "gay."

"I hold Mayor Buttigieg in the highest personal regard," the then-governor said, "and we have a great working relationship, and I see him as a dedicated public servant and a patriot."

Karen Pence: "I'm just like, Pete, did you not like that? Did you not like that? Because that's what the vice president said about him. So it's like, uh, what's the problem with that?"

Karen Pence isn't angry. She says Buttigieg – in saying that about the vice president – is just trying to "get some notoriety" as he considers a run for the White House.

The Democratic hopeful – who touts himself as a homosexual Episcopalian – made news earlier this week when he labeled evangelical Christians who support President Donald Trump "hypocrites."
