Pence: Buttigieg 'Knows Better' Than Criticism on LGBT Stance

Pence: Buttigieg 'Knows Better' Than Criticism on LGBT Stance

Buttigieg, who is one of many vying for the Democratic presidential nomination, is the mayor of South Bend, Indiana. 'It's amusing because I don't think the vice president does have a problem with him, but I think it's helping Pete to get some notoriety by saying that about the vice president'.

"You may be religious and you may not", he added. "He's not saying, 'This is my religion, I'm proud of it.' He's saying, 'No, you, Mr".

"If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade", Buttigieg said.

"But I get it". Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator'.

Mrs. Pence said on "The Story" that she appreciates the freedoms that America provides, including the freedom to marry whoever you wish.

"He said some things that are critical of my Christian faith and about me personally", Pence, who was governor of IN when Buttigieg came out as being gay while running for reelection as mayor of South Bend, told CNBC IN an interview airing Thursday. He said some things that are critical of my Christian faith and of me personally. "He knows better. He knows me".


"If you had offered me a pill to make me straight, I would have swallowed it before I could get a sip of water", he said.

"I get it, you know, it's like, you have 19 people running for president on that side, and part of it is sliding off to the left", he added.

CNBC's Joe Kernen asked the vice president if his views on same-sex "marriage" have changed in the last two decades.

Asked if his views have evolved on marriage equality, Pence replied, "The Supreme Court has made their decision". "And we stand by that, but that doesn't mean that we're critical of anyone else who has a different point of view". We have a great working relationship.

People will often be polite to you in person, while advancing policies that harm you and your family. Previous year the Vice President battled Olympic skater Adam Rippon, making thinly-veiled disparaging remarks as only Mike Pence can, and attacking him before he was to perform. "So it goes, in the public square".

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.
