Buttigieg will use law to force acceptanceApril 16, 2019
To the editor:
Pete Buttigieg is the mayor of South Bend and is running for President as a Democrat. Buttigieg identifies as a homosexual and has been attacking Vice President Pence. Of course, the attacks are contrived only to generate publicity as Pence has worked with Buttigieg for years, and “he knows I don’t have a problem with him,” says Pence.
Recently, Buttigieg was on the “The Ellen Show” and had this to say: “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 ... I’m not interested in feuding with the vice president, but if he wanted to clear this up, he could come out today and say he has changed his mind, that it shouldn’t be legal to discriminate against anybody in this country for who they are. That’s all.”
“For who they are” he says, but what he really means is “for what they do.”
Cardinal Robert Sarah says: “Homosexuality does not define the identity of persons. It describes certain deviant, sinful, and perverse acts."
Some have changed “who they are” and are now somebody else simply through changing their behavior. If you can change who you are by changing what you do, then it is not an inviolable identity.
The vice president and the church already hold that a person should not be discriminated against merely because of how they identify themselves. Buttigieg wants to use the law as a club to force everyone to accept people whom they may sincerely believe engage in deviant, sinful and perverse acts.
The Equality Act, co-sponsored by every House Democrat but one, would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make "sexual orientation and gender identity" protected characteristics under federal anti-discrimination law. Were this law to pass, Buttigieg and his LGBTQ totalitarians could really mess up the lives of innocent people.
Take out an insurance policy against this: vote Republican.
