In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg’s brother-in-law criticized the candidate for being “anti-God.” Pastor Rhyan Glezman, is the brother of Buttigieg’s husband Chasten, and he was responding to earlier comments the presidential candidate made about Christians who support Donald Trump.
During Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, Buttigieg was asked what he thought about Christians who support Trump, The Christian Post reports.
Buttigieg, who’s Episcopalian, recently told CNN that he didn’t think he had a right to “tell other Christians how to be Christians” but added that hw “can’t find any compatibility between the way this president conducts himself and anything I find in scripture.”
That apparently didn’t sit well with Glezman, who is the pastor of a Michigan congregation. He claimed Buttigieg was promoting ideas that go against scripture.
“The height of intellectual dishonesty for Pete to make claims that there’s no compatibility with being a Christian and voting for Trump, which Pete, in fact, is the one who is pushing agendas and rhetoric that is clearly against scripture,” Glezman told Carlson.”
Then he attacked Buttigieg for his stance on abortion, accusing him of wanting to legalize infanticide and saying Buttigieg ” can’t make a moral decision on whether to keep a child after it’s already been born or have it killed.”
He criticized Buttigieg for using “anti-God rhetoric,” and inferred that a Christian isn’t “allowed” to “wag his finger in the face of people” in order to moralize, even though Buttigieg, in the CNN interview, noted he was only talking about his own personal beliefs.
“Just everything that Pete is pushing, it’s anti-God,” Glezman said. “I’m just gonna be honest with you. Nothing lines up with scripture for him to make cases like to say that you cannot be a Christian and vote for Trump. He’s the one that is openly contradicting God’s word over and over.”
