Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg’s personal view of religion is “love and humility”
It’s clear that Mike Pence could learn a lot from South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg who I become more impressed with each day.
Buttigieg, expected to announce his candidacy for US president this weekend, appeared on The Ellen Show for an interview that airs today.
I like how Buttigieg explained that what he takes from his personal view of religion is “love and humility, humbling yourself before God and putting other people before you.”
The openly gay mayor discussed with Ellen his remarks criticizing Mike Pence’s views on LGBTQ people: “I’m not critical of his faith. I’m critical of bad policies. I don’t have a problem with religion. I’m religious, too. I have a problem with religion being used as a justification to harm people and especially in the LGBTQ community. So many people, even today, feel like they don’t belong. You can get fired in so many parts of this country just for who you are. And that’s got to change. “
