“Christian” Activist Heckles Pete Buttigieg in Iowa: Screams “Remember Sodom And Gomorrah” at Rally (Video)

Via: Politico Playbook 

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg swept into Iowa on Tuesday, drawing some of the biggest crowds of the 2020 race so far in the first-in-the-nation caucus state. He faced anti-gay hecklers at two events, including in Des Moines where a man in the crowd shouted ‘remember Sodom and Gomorrah!’ just after Buttigieg talked about marrying his husband, Chasten, who attended the event.

The man kept shouting but the crowd chants of ‘Pete! Pete!’ drowned him out. Buttigieg calmly looked on as security escorted away the individual. “The good news is, the condition of my soul is in the hands of God, but the Iowa caucuses are up to you,” Buttigieg said to laughter and cheers.

In all, three hecklers over two Iowa events were taken away and each time Buttigieg unflinchingly carried on after cracking a joke or commenting on freedom of expression. A campaign aide said it was the first time the mayor faced such security incidents since touring nationally.

The “Christian” nutjob named Randall Terry is an anti-abortion, and anti-LGBT activist who’s own son is gay, much to his embarrassment and has been arrested more than 40 times. Two of Terry’s children by adoption became pregnant outside of wedlock. Both were thrown out of the house when they became pregnant, with no help from pro-life daddy to support them.

Terry is quoted as saying: ” I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good… Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called on by God to conquer this country. We don’t want equal time. We don’t want pluralism.” – —The News Sentinel, (Fort Wayne, Indiana), August 16, 1993

  1. I am a gay man of 66 yrs old. Have read the bible every year from cover to cover except the last few pages of the last book on purpose. I consider myself a Christian and have read many versions of the bible. However I spent time on Sodom an Gomorah to find out why God got rid of those cities. It was for failing to follow his orders about many laws and rules and about forcing sexual things on the good people there by evil demons and humans. It wasn’t for being gay. It was about obedience to God and how he wanted the people to stop following false idols and other gods. The mention of sex with same sex people was forced upon them by the demonic people in the cities. So so called Christians that call that up aren’t paying attention to what Jesus Christ talks about in the Gospels. They are doing what many interpret the old testament like some of the various writers that may have had their original text changed. Jesus never once, mentions homosexuality and he had one apostle he favored, that was young and when they took him from the Garden of Gethsemane. That young apostle got up to run and lost the small tunic covering him at the waist. He was naked and had been praying and laying his head on the lap of Jesus according to a few versions of the gospel in the bible. We are to love one another as we love ourselves.
    I am comfortable knowing only my God can judge and condemn me. I am also fine that people don’t like it but feel sorry for them and the people that preach one thing and do another. Is one sin worse than another? I don’t think so. There is one sin if we commit, where Christ said, we could lose our salvation for. Blaspheming the Holy Spirit… No other does He mention anywhere!
