Pete Buttigieg (dark bkgrd)Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is out with a new campaign ad in which the openly homosexual mayor quotes scripture.

The 30-second spot is running in South Carolina, where the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is hoping for the support of Christians for a strong showing:

Buttigieg: "In our White House, you won't have to shake your head and ask yourself, 'Whatever happened to I was hungry and you fed me, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.'"

The reference is from Matthew 25 where Jesus talks about the Final Judgment during the Great Tribulation. Dr. Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of First Baptist-Dallas, says Christ will judge people on how they treated the 144,000 Jewish evangelists promised in the last days.

"I do think there's an application for right now that, as individuals and as Christians together, we should be hospitable to those who are in need," the pastor tells OneNewsNow. "And frankly, there's no more hospitable place in the world to those in need than the United States of America."

But he points out God's command to the government is to guard its borders and protect its citizens.

As for the mayor's homosexuality, Jeffress says it will not play well in South Carolina.

"Pete Buttigieg is facing tremendous opposition from the African-American community, from other conservative Christians – not because he claims to be gay, but because of his vitriol against those who believe in traditional marriage," he contends.

Buttigieg – who is "married" to his male partner, Chasten Glezman – draws single-digit support for the nomination in most South Carolina polls. Since February, those same polls have shown former Vice President Joe Biden with substantial double-digit leads over his nearest competitor.
