A prominent Christian conservative has said that South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg would make a bad role model for children because he’s gay, and therefore people should vote against him.

Bryan Fischer is the Director of Issues Analysis for the SPLC designated anti-LGBTQ hate group American Family Association.

On his radio show, he said that Pete Buttigieg would make a bad president because he wouldn’t be a good role model to children because of his “sexual conduct.”

“Do we want somebody who engages in that kind of sexual conduct to serve as a role model for the rest of the country, to serve as a role model for America’s children,” Fischer said. “I vote no.”

On Twitter, some people noticed that if Fischer is really worried about presidential sexual conduct, he doesn’t have to look at possible future presidents….

Since Buttigieg has shown that he’s a viable candidate at the Iowa caucuses, he may face more homophobic attacks from the right.

Andrew Bieszad, the Christian pundit who called Buttigieg the “king of cocks” last year, started attacking Buttigieg’s sexuality again.

In a column, he said that Buttigieg is a “sodomite” and is too “effeminate” to be president, renewing his attacks on the him.

“A woman ran in 2016 for the Democrats and lost,” Bieszad wrote. “Right now, it appears that the sodomite Buttigieg is being promoted, but he is highly effeminate and it is very likely he will be crushed by Trump in 2020 should he be nominated.”
