Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg says that Trump supporters cannot be Christians
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has been accused of being “anti-God” by his husband’s predecessor.
Rhyan Glezman, 35, pastor in Clio, Michigan, responded this week to Buttigieg’s claim that it was impossible to be a Christian and vote for Donald Trump.
Glezman, whose younger brother Chasten is married to Buttigieg, said to Tucker Carlson tonight: “All Pete is pushing is anti-God. I’m just going to be honest with you.
“Nothing matches the Scripture to make cases that say you can’t be a Christian and you can vote for Trump. He is the one who openly contradicts God’s word over and over again. ”
He added that it was “the culmination of intellectual dishonesty for Pete to claim that there is no compatibility with being a Christian and voting for Trump.”
He said, “Pete is actually the one who pushes agendas and rhetoric that is against, clearly against Scripture.”
38-year-old Buttigieg made his remarks after being asked by CNN host Erin Burnett: “Do you think it’s impossible to be a Christian and support Trump?”

“I’m not going to tell other Christians how they should be Christians,” Buttigieg said during a town hall.
“But I will say that I cannot find any compatibility between the way this President behaves and everything I find in the Bible.”
Buttigieg met Chasten, a teacher, on a dating app in 2015 and they got married three years later.
Glezman also responded to a clip by Buttigieg on The View about abortion with partial birth after being asked where his ‘line is’.
“But my point is that it should not be a government official to draw the line,” Buttigieg said. “It must be up to the woman who is confronted.”
Glezman said to Tucker on Wednesday: “I am only in a state of lamentation if you hear that there is someone who is supreme commander who cannot make a moral decision about whether or not to keep a child after it is born or killed.
“What moral suggestions does he get if he doesn’t find out? It’s just, it’s alarming. “
Buttigieg clashed with his brother-in-law earlier last year when Glezman accused the politician of hijacking his family’s history for political advantage by making a fake background story of poverty, homelessness and homophobia.
Glezman said he received death threats and hate mail when stories circulated claiming that he was a fool who had dropped out with his younger brother Chasten when he told his family that he was gay.
Glezman insisted that he had been supportive and that he wanted “the best for him,” but he admitted that he was against same-sex marriage.
He added last May: “A mayor from a small town and his husband, a child who grew up with nothing and his parents kicked him out … it’s a perfect political story for the campaign.
“I find that very sad. If that is all you need to stand on, you are not fit to be President of the United States. “
Chasten shared this Instagram message last June to celebrate their one-year marriage. The two were married at St. James’s Cathedral in South Bend
