Christian preacher: Pete Buttigieg should be ‘thrown in jail’ for advising 9-year-old on how to come out as gay

A few days ago a youngster in Colorado asked Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg to “help me tell the world I’m gay, too,” and right-wing Christian talk show host Dave Daubenmire is beyond upset that Buttigieg wasn’t arrested “for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.”

Daubenmire is so disturbed by this in fact, that he flew into a vitriolic rage on his Pass The Salt program earlier today.

“Fifty years ago they would have thrown [Buttigieg] in jail for even bringing it up and talking about it in front of a young kid,” Daubenmire yelled. “Whatever happened to shame? Why didn’t his mommy put him into a headlock and drag him off the court? Where’s his daddy?”

A guest on the show suggested audience members should have demanded that the sheriff pull Buttigieg from the stage because he was “violating the moral code of our lives.” Another guest surmised that the boy asking the question “was probably molested by either mom or dad or some relative.”

Daubenmire appeared aghast and said he couldn’t believe society was supporting a candidate who “is contributing to the delinquency of a minor.”
