Pete Buttigieg, Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, envisions himself a presidential candidate. Whereas I see him as a modern day Joseph Smith, but without the claim of the golden plates, no make that a Fred Phelps for a new mileneum, from TIME

“People talk about things like marriage equality as a moral issue, and it is certainly a moral issue as far as I’m concerned,” Buttigieg said. “It’s a moral issue because being married to Chasten has made me a better human being — because it has made me more compassionate, more understanding, more self-aware and more decent. My marriage to Chasten has made me a better man and yes, Mr. Vice President, it has moved me closer to God.”

Now Mr. Pete Buttigieg is certainly entitled to both hold and preach his particular religious beliefs, whatever they happen to be. However if Mr. Pete Buttigieg chooses to preach in public he should clearly identify his particular religion. Further more, he should absolutely refrain from using his personal religions beliefs as any basis for criticism of public policy.

Maybe Mr. Pete Buttigieg’s personal god has, or has not, made him a better person. It has certain not made him a better politician

    the vp’s argument is not with God, but with what the former mayor has done with his creation.
