Pence Breaks Silence On Buttigieg’s Attack On His Faith

Pence made the remarks during an interview Wednesday with Joe Kernen on CNBC's "Squawk Box" that was set to air Thursday morning.

"That's the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand: That if you have a problem with who I am, your quarrel is not with me". He said some things that are critical of my Christian faith and of me personally.

Pence shared that he was not surprised by the claims despite the fact that the two worked "very closely" when Pence was the governor of Indiana.

Buttigieg invoked Pence during his speech before the LGBTQ Victory Fund brunch in D.C. on Sunday in a emotional speech in which the South Bend mayor talked about his personal struggle accepting being gay. "He knows better", Pence said.

She also noted, according to The Hill, that while Buttigieg's comments are helping the Democrat garner "some notoriety", the mayor and her husband "have always had a great relationship".

"Nineteen people running for president on that side in a party that's sliding off to the left".

Kernen then asked Pence if his views on marriage equality have evolved with the broader national view on LGBT equality.

"There is not a single example of Pence in his professional leadership role being rude, disrespectful, or hostile towards a gay person in the years he has been vice president, governor, or a member of Congress", Greene added.

PENCE: Look, the Supreme Court has made their decision. "God loves us, and the Bible says we are all sinners who need God's forgiveness, which He offers if we repent and turn from our sin and put our faith in His Son, Jesus Christ", Graham wrote.

Pence's wife, Karen, also responded to Buttigieg's comments, declaring that "in our country, we need to understand you shouldn't be attacked for what your religious beliefs are".

"But that doesn't mean that we're critical of anyone who has a different point of view", he added.

"We'll continue to cherish our values, cherish our views", Pence concluded.
