Pete Buttigieg was in Dallas for a campaign event Friday evening when a gaggle of antigay bigots decided to crash the event.
The 2020 hopeful was speaking before an audience at an event hosted by the Dallas County Democratic Party when he was rudely interrupted by a group of Christian extremists who shouted “Marriage is between a man and a woman!”, “Remember Sodom and Gomorrah!”, and “Repent!”
Pete Buttigieg has been interrupted four times here in Dallas by protesters. One yelled “Marriage is between a man and a woman!” Another yelled “Repent!” After the 4th, Buttigieg continued, “The moment I packed my bags for Afghanistan, to defend that man’s freedom of speech…” pic.twitter.com/zIpDSCIrti

One of the hecklers was antigay activist Randall Terry who, earlier this year, vowed to protest five of Buttigieg’s upcoming campaign stops in Iowa and has since developed a bizarre obsession with the 37-year-old presidential candidate, following him around from state to state to state.

Buttigieg was undeterred by Friday’s interruption, however. As the protesters were being escorted from the building, he told the crowd it was all part of why he spent six months fighting in Afghanistan. You know, to defend their right to protest. Even if they were protesting against him.
Afterwards, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who is technically competing against Buttigieg for the Democratic nomination, shared words of support for his opponent.
“Texans don’t stand for this kind of homophobia and hatred,” O’Rourke tweeted. “Mayor Pete, we are grateful you came to Texas and hope to see you and Chasten back again soon.”

In Ezekiel 16:48–50, God compares Jerusalem to Sodom, saying “Sodom never did what you and your daughters have done.” He explains that the sin of Sodom was that “She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me.”
In other words, the men of Sodom refused welcome to guests in their city and even attempted to commit violence against them; their destruction was a consequence of this failure.
I really do hate these f* cks. They’re either bigots using the bible as weapon for their hate or just loons like that lady and her insane babbling about babies.
It’s all about $$$$. They have to have someone to hate so they can make flyers and raise money to support themselves. That’s why it’s important to find out who they are representing and if their organization is tax exempt. That’s where you hit them is in the purse. Ignore them and they won’t have a platform to preach. Which is what Pete does.
Vince…..Once again, you have these older imbeciles who have done NO research to realize there is NO PROOF that Sodom and Gomorrah ever existed. These older ding-Bats can’t think for themselves and would believe ANYTHING coming from a pulpit. Sad. It’s OK….they are slowly dying out. The younger generation mostly doesn’t give a RAT’s as to sexuality. The wheels of progress are moving but slowly.
Fur_hunter. I agree that it’s complete made up BS. However, if I was passionate about something I would want to know as much about it as possible yet they take the complete opposite approach. They only take out the parts they like and yet still don’t understand it. Their nothing but hateful frauds.
How soon before any of these protesters are caught peeking into Buttigieg’s bedroom window trying to get an underwear glimpse. These self hating closet cases are just sad.
Randy Terry – sounds like a gay porn actor.

Q: What do you call a “cum rag”?
A: Terry cloth.
If you note the age of MOST of these IMBECILES. Older Dim-wits who can’t think for themselves and are clueless about actual facts. And as he yells out about Sodom and Gomorrah…..There is NO PROOF….NONE those places ever existed. Archeologists have been searching for YEARS looking for their location and they cannot find it. Just another HEARSAY story in the BuyBull…a total work of FICTION!!!!…….MORONS!!!!!!
Why didn’t queerty report on the parched protesting in Birmingham shouting shame and holding signs proclaiming you can’t be Muslim and homosexuality?
Why has queerty ignored the religious bigotry of the Muslim parents angry their children are being taught it’s OK to be gay?
Why has queerty ignored the no Outsiders program had been shut down to comply with the Muslim community’s demands.
Yes, I don’t understand either. Now, it okay of Muslim prosecute or discrimination gay people while not okay to criticize Islam.
Criticizing Christianity is ok on Queerty. However, criticism towards Islam is Islamophobia. That story will never see the light of day on Queerty.
Wow, I just read about that. How awful
Chrixtian trash, their churches are empty and their ministers child molesters. They are already in hell. May they rot. Jesus never knew them.
Last I knew hatred , bigotry , & ignorance was a choice. I would rather choose compassion , love understanding and acceptance any day. Isn’t that what that book is supposed to be about ?
FOR THE RECORD RANDALL TERRY HAS A GAY SON.
Sodom and Gomorrah were examples of inhospitable, rude, unwilling, unkind and efforts were made to rape their “guest” an angel. How ignorant are these people? Thank you Mayor Pete for your gracious words, your uphill battle against people who refuse to respect laws. If it’s de criminalizes then that is the law of Th3 land. Fostering & adoption? Serving in armed forces? Marriage? The government leads the people into greater acceptance, awareness and embracing diversity. Ignore Trump.
So let’s just say your religious views are a disgrace to Christianity or any religion. Is it true? First ask is it really truth? Have you the right facts to use as free speech! Is it fair and kind!? If it’s not, keep it to yourself.
As the Dalai Lama said recently, ‘If you have anger, keep it to yourself.’
Religious conservatives seem determined to prove that they are the stupidest, most obnoxious people on earth. Maybe they are.
Dinosaurs just need to DIE so that intelligent life can thrive.
Where were these clowns when the serial adulterer was in town?
Everyone is making an insane effort to not touch these fools… Why? Has the political and societal climate fallen to such a point where we can’t touch strangers…?
I would grab every single person who is disrupting by the arm and forcefully remove them, close the door firmly behind them and not give two shits after that.
It’s good that people are learning that their opinion matters, and that they can voice them, but people must NEVER forget that your actions have consequences.
…these religious idiots have such little knowledge of up to date real life issues. Just listen to them they’re the real MAD ones..! All religious zealots ought to be silenced because they’re rhetoric is always the same and they really are the ones screaming the obscenities..nothing reflects any factual life asserting issues.

Funny… but not really is you hear her last statement, “What about the babies?”. Get out of our faces prissy-missy misguided and gullible girl.
Reply ‘don’t worry about it, ignorant hag; nobody’s gonna want to fu*k you anyway, gay OR straight’….well, that’s what I would have said, lol….I’m sorry, when it comes to this stuff, I have no filter…..:)
For what it’s worth, I want to report on the owners and managers of the Senior Independent Living complex my wife and I reside at. We are two of the youngest residents in here; 55 being the age of acceptance for an apartment. When we moved in, one die-hard bible-thumping older woman took it upon herself to stalk us…holding it above her head while screeching at us to repent and find men. This happened in the hallway, the elevator, and even in the lobby…being Indiana and having to deal with Mike Pence’s hateful message before he left to lick Trump’s boots in DC, we simply ignored it and went about our business. Then one day this crazy woman banged on our door like cops with a warrant at 2 am; screaming and muttering scripture. Again, we sent her away with no complaint to management, thinking that the mostly older-than-70 crowd would probably agree with her bigotry anyway. Much to our delight, surprise, and simple amazement, several other older residents even up to 98 yrs old had gone to the building representative after hearing our Hater terrorize us…and demanded that this unhinged person be evicted immediately. Upper Management agreed; and the woman was given notice to vacate !!! We actually had the support of the complex to not be a victim of this crap, and STICK IT WHERE ‘MOTHER’ WON’T FIND IT, MIKEY…we have Mayor Pete of South Bend that has impressed our seniors with his campaign, veteran’s status, and happy marriage. Knowing that my wife and I have been a couple since 2000, with 5 grown kids and several grandchildren, nobody here is asking “What about the babies”, lol…we’ve proven that like the famous rock album of the same name, The Kids Are Alright, lol….
