Pete Buttigieg’s Brother: He’s “Intellectually Dishonest” to Say He’s a Christian and Support Abortion

Democrat Pete Buttigieg’s own family is calling out his dishonesty for claiming to be a Christian who supports the killing of unborn babies up to birth.

Rhyan Glezman, a pastor and the brother-in-law of the pro-abortion presidential candidate, recently spoke with Fox News host Tucker Carlson about Buttigieg’s so-called Christian faith, the Washington Examiner reports.

“The height of intellectual dishonesty for Pete to make claims that there’s no compatibility with being a Christian and voting for Trump, which Pete, in fact, is the one who is pushing agendas and rhetoric that is clearly against Scripture,” Glezman said.

Glezman said it troubles him deeply that his brother-in-law is running for the highest office in the land, but he can’t even “make a moral decision on whether to keep a child after it’s already been born or to have it killed.”

Last week, when Buttigieg appeared on The View, he defended abortions for any reason up to birth and infanticide. View host Meghan McCain asked him about late-term abortions and cited Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s infamous defense of infanticide — saying that babies should be left to die if parents want that.

Buttigieg refused to condemn infanticide or Northam’s comments and dismissed that it even happens even though Centers for Disease Control statistics show that babies do survive abortions.

Reacting to his relative’s comments, Glezman told Carlson that abortion is “absolutely not” consistent with Christian values.

“I encourage Pete, and everyone in America, to read Psalm 139:13-16, where God says in his word that every single person is ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’ in the image of God. Go to Jeremiah 1:5, where it talks about God knew us before we were ever in our mother’s womb,” he said.

If elected president, Buttigieg has signaled that his allegiance would be to the billion-dollar abortion industry, not women or voters. He supports a radical pro-abortion platform that calls for legalized abortions for any reason up to birth and taxpayer-funded abortions, both of which Americans strongly oppose.

In May, he described the killing of unborn babies as “an American freedom,” the AP reports. He said the government should not restrict abortions in any way, and instead leave the decision to abort an unborn baby completely up to women, according to One News Now.

“I think the dialogue has gotten so caught up on where you draw the line that we’ve gotten away from the fundamental question of who gets to draw the line,” Buttigieg said when asked about a new Alabama law that bans all abortions. “And I trust women to draw the line.”

The former South Bend, Indiana mayor, who claims to be a Christian, also recently refused to welcome pro-life Democrat voters and lawmakers into the party.
