Pete Buttigieg, a prospective Democratic presidential candidate and the current mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is a devout Christian who has, from the start, been upfront about how much his faith has influenced his life. Buttigieg was baptized Roman Catholic, went to Catholic schools, and has cited several religious figures, including St. Augustine, as religious influences.
Despite this, right-wing figures have taken to dismissing Buttigieg as "not really Christian." This isn't because Buttigieg is gay, but because he's an Episcopalian.
A member of Congress who publicly presents himself as one of President Donald Trump's more vociferous defenders has privately decided that he detests the president "and wants to unload," according to a report from The Resurgent's Erick Erickson, the former editor of Red State and himself one of the president's harsher conservative critics.
"If we're going to lose because of him, we might as well impeach the motherf**ker," said the congressman, whom Erickson stumbled upon while out shopping with his family at a supermarket on Capitol Hill.
