Pete Buttigieg–Man of Faith
Here’s a pretty-how-de-do! Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend and leading candidate for the Democratic nomination, wonders if someone like Donald Trump--so wealthy, so unashamed of his wealth--could possibly be Christian. He has also attacked Mike Pence for his concentration on sexual issues.
Like many people who read the headlines, I wondered what religion could inform the mind of a man who attacks one politician for being rich and another for being moralistic, when he pretends to have married another man. (I forget which he pretends to be the wife and which the husband.) He can’t be a Muslim, and Hinduism is fairly straight on marriage, so what?
It turns out he is described as a “devout Episcoplian.”
Thank goodness. For a minute I thought he was pretending to be some kind of Christian.
