Pastor says it’s not a right time for a gay President


Bishop Paul S. Morton, who preaches at Greater St. Stephen Full Gospel Baptist Church in New Orleans, Louisiana, tells Democrats not to support Pete Buttigieg because to his mind the country is not ready for a gay President. He said that he is not homophobic and he loves gay people and so does God. But the thing is Buttigieg is married to a man and this is something he is not ready to support as a Christian. He believes in the Biblical definition of marriage and recommends everybody to do the same, also adding that voting for a married gay man would be ‘too liberal’ and ‘a political suicide’. Twitter users say that “I am not homophobic, but…” is a quite common beginning for homophobic statements and Buttigieg himself is a Christian and whether being gay is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ is something to decide only between him and God. And as we can see, he found out for himself that it is not wrong to love his husband and to love Jesus at once, and he is responsible only to God for this decision. It does not refer to his political potential and his possibility to succeed as a President. As for the rest of the people, they should follow another Biblical rule – don’t judge not to be judged.
