Campaign “Trail Mix”: the Democratic presidential candidates are supposed to be on the search in which mayor Pete Buttigieg could be vulnerable.

MSNBC the “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough took evangelists Rev. Franklin Graham to task Thursday, calling him a “disgrace” for the recent comments about 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg sexuality.

Scarborough’s comment was in response to a tweet from Graham, the President of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, an Evangelical Christian humanitarian aid organization, where he Buttigieg condemned, to say as a “gay Christian,” that the Bible “defines homosexuality as a sin.”

Scarborough said on Thursday: “Oh shut up, just shut up Franklin Graham! You are a disgrace! You behaviour is a disgrace for the normalization Donald Trump’s.”

Graham tweeted on Wednesday, “Presidential candidate & South Bend mayor @PeteButtigieg is right— that God is not a political party. But God has commandments, laws, and standards that He gives us. God does not change. His word is the same yesterday, today, & forever.”

Graham posted a tweet in response to a CNN article with the title “Pete Buttigieg: ‘God is not a political party'”

Graham also tweeted, “mayor Buttigieg says that he is a gay Christian. As a Christian, I believe that the Bible defines homosexuality as a sin, to repent of something, something not to be flaunted, praised, or politicized. The Bible says that marriage is between a man & a woman, not two men, two women.”

He concluded: “The core of the Christian faith, in the faith and in the succession of Jesus Christ, which God sent as the Saviour of the world—to save us from sin, to save us from hell, to save us from eternal damnation.”

Scarborough said in response: “Here is a man who, along with so many people in my community, the Evangelical community, attacked Bill Clinton for his personal failings.”

“You are now with your position, these Evangelical leaders, like the religious leaders of Jesus’ day, you are now winning with their positions, political power, and apologize for Donald Trump.”

Buttigieg, South Bend, Ind., Mayor, came out as gay during his mayoral campaign for re-election in 2015. Earlier this month, he discussed his sexual orientation during a meeting of the LGBTQ victory Fund, said: “If I was gay is a choice, it was far, far above my pay grade group”

He added: “If you have a problem with the I- – your problem is not with me, your quarrel, sir, with my Creator.”

Scarborough said on Thursday: “Now all of a sudden, Franklin Graham spoke about the way of life and sin, and a man who had a very difficult personal journey to find out who he really is, he is criticizing? Because it is not a life style choice. And who is Pete Buttigieg to talk, know that.”
