AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg says he and Vice President Mike Pence have different views of their Christian faith and that he doesn’t understand Pence’s loyalty to President Trump.

The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, says his feeling “is that the Scripture is about protecting the stranger, the prisoner, the poor person, and that idea of welcome.” That’s what I get in the Gospel when I’m in church.” He said Pence’s view “has a lot more to do with sexuality, a certain view of rectitude.”

Buttigieg says he is puzzled by Pence’s strong support for the president.

He asks how Pence “could allow himself to become the cheerleader of the porn star presidency?” and adds, “Is it that he stopped believing in Scripture, when he started believing in Donald Trump?”

Buttigieg made the comments at a CNN town hall Sunday night in Austin, Texas.
