By Breitbart. Mayor Pete Buttigieg claimed Friday that Christianity had its own extremist factions of faith similar to that of radical Islam in the Middle East.
Asked about the differences between Shia extremism followed in Iran versus Sunni extremism, the 2020 presidential candidate immediately compared radical Islam to Christianity.
“Well, you know, not unlike Christianity when it is motivating someone to do something extreme. It can have a thousand different flavors,” he said. “The real question is what’s going on with the regime, the government, that’s given the power and the apparatus of the state and intelligence service and a military, and what do they do with their ideology?” . . .
The South Bend mayor also compared the radical Iran regime to President Donald Trump’s administration, insofar as whether they were representative of the entire population.
“You know, Iran, the Iranian regime does not speak for all of the Iranian people as a unit any more than, you know, you could say that there are no moderate politicians in the U.S., and we’re all secretly enthusiastic Trump supporters,” he said. “It just doesn’t work that way.” (Read more from “Radical 2020 Dem: Christianity Has Extremist Factions, Just Like Islam” HERE)

By CBN News. Meanwhile, Buttigieg says he’s a Christian, but he’s been touting his homosexuality and his marriage to a man named Chasten Glezman as a campaign issue, lashing out repeatedly at Vice President Mike Pence over his conservative Christian views.
On the campaign trail, Buttigieg has blasted Pence’s cultural and religious conservatism.
Appearing on The Stephen Colbert Show last month, Buttigieg said of Pence, “He’s nice. If he were here, you would think he’s a nice guy to your face. But he’s also fanatical.”
He lashed out at the vice president for his biblical views on sexuality.
“If it was a choice,” Buttigieg said of being same-sex attracted, “it was a choice made way above my pay grade.” (Read more from “Gay Dem Candidate Buttigieg Compares Christians to Islamic Extremists, Calls Pence ‘Fanatical'” HERE)
