Christian Woman Who Voted For Buttigieg Panics After Finding Out He’s Gay

Christian Woman Who Voted For Buttigieg Panics After Finding Out He’s Gay February 4, 2020

Low Information Voter: A Christian woman panics after finding out that Pete Buttigieg, the candidate she voted for in the Iowa caucus, is gay and married to a man. 

In a video highlighting the bigotry and willful ignorance of many Christians, an Iowa voter is caught on video freaking out after finding out that the Democratic candidate she voted for is gay and married to another man.

TMZ reports:

Pete Buttigieg seemed to lose at least one supporter during this week’s caucusing in Iowa, and it’s all because the woman found he was gay AFTER she cast her vote.

The Hill reports:

An Iowa voter who had sought to support former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the state’s troubled caucuses on Monday changed her mind after learning he’s gay.

Mediaite reports:

Nikki van den Heever, a caucus precinct captain for former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, tried to talk down an Iowa woman who was incensed to find out — in real-time during a caucus after she’d signed a card supporting him — that the candidate is openly gay.

In the video the “good Christian woman” can be heard saying:

Are you saying that he has a same-sex partner? Pete?

Iowa caucus precinct captain Nikki Heever responds:

Yes, yes he does.

The unnamed woman declares:

Are you kidding? Then I don’t want anybody like that in the White House. So can I have my card back? He better read the bible.

Heever replies:

I don’t know, you signed it. We could go ask.

Heever then tries to reason with the Christian bigot:

The whole point of it is, though, he’s a human being, right? Just like you and me and it shouldn’t really matter…

The woman replies:

Well he better read the Bible.

Heever responds:

He does, and he says that God doesn’t choose a political party because… 

The woman, with a smug smile on her face, interrupts to ask:

Why does it say in the Bible that a man should marry a woman then?

And on it goes. The Christian woman is an ignorant bigot, and the quintessential “low information voter.” Imagine voting for Buttigieg and not knowing he is gay. 

The stupid, it burns.

Bottom line: A Christian woman panics after finding out that Pete Buttigieg, the candidate she voted for in the Iowa caucus, is gay and married to a man.
