Rev. Franklin Graham had a lot to say Wednesday to 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg over his numerous statements about the Christian faith.
Graham was specifically responding to the South Bend, Indiana, mayor's comments about God not being on the side of any political party.
"Presidential candidate & South Bend Mayor @PeteButtigieg is right—God doesn't have a political party," tweeted Graham.
"But God does have commandments, laws & standards He gives us to live by," he explained. "God doesn't change. His Word is the same yesterday, today & forever."
"Mayor Buttigieg says he's a gay Christian," Graham continued in a second tweet.
"As a Christian I believe the Bible which defines homosexuality as sin, something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized," he said. "The Bible says marriage is between a man & a woman—not two men, not two women."
"The core of the Christian faith is believing and following Jesus Christ," Graham concluded, "who God sent to be the Savior of the world—to save us from sin, to save us from hell, to save us from eternal damnation."
Buttigieg has used Christianity to criticize his political opponents as part of his presidential campaign, with Vice President Mike Pence as one of his favorite targets. The presidential candidate has tried to reframe Christianity to fit the policies of the Democratic Party while questioning who is authentically Christian.
