As we have previously reported, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg recently made an especially heinous defense for late-term abortion on Friday by claiming that the Bible teaches that life doesn’t truly begin until a person has drawn their first breath.
While every Christian with a spine has something to say about Buttigieg’s vile twisting of scriptural principles to support the holocaust of the unborn, one man in particular has an especially weighty voice on the matter: Rhyan Glezman, a Michigan pastor who is also the brother of Buttigieg’s “husband,” Chasten.
In his Friday interview with hip hop radio show The Breakfast Club, Buttigieg feigned sensitivity to pro-life concerns about abortion which, he said, ”is obviously a tough issue for a lot of people to think through morally.”
“Then again,” he added, “there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath, and so even that is something that we can interpret differently.”
He continued, “I think, no matter what you think about the kind of cosmic question of how life begins, most Americans can get on board with the idea of, alright, I might draw the line here, you might draw the line there, but the most important thing is the person who should be drawing the line is the woman making the decision.”
“I feel a sense of responsibility and stewardship of my faith to stand up and say something, to say, ‘No, that’s not true,'” Pastor Glezman said, explaining his opposition to his “brother-in-law” to the Washington Examiner. “God places a very high value on all human life. Everyone is created fearfully and wonderfully in the image of God with intrinsic value. That doesn’t start at the first breath, it starts when we enter our mother’s womb.”
Can this man get an ‘amen’??
“If we’re going to say we’re for all people and we love all people, but we don’t value human life in the womb, that’s being a hypocrite,” Glezman continued, rebuking Buttigieg for his “outrageous” use of Scripture. “You’re hypocritical if you don’t stand up for all life. So that’s why I’m speaking out.”
Glezman even went so far as to slam Buttigieg as a “modern-day pharisee” who has “manipulated” and “weaponized” the Word of God for his own political gain, and is “making up their own rules and regulations and, basically, if we don’t celebrate and endorse their interpretation of Scripture, our religion is fallible.”
“This isn’t a little issue, especially when we’re talking about life,” he declared. “This is not just a political conversation. We’re talking about human life. These are human beings.” Glezman stated, noting that each of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are “very anti-life” and “very anti-God,” not just Buttigieg.
While he loves both Pete and Chasten, Pastor Glezman said that he truly hopes they will “repent from teaching these false claims of Christianity; that [Buttigieg] would just have an absolute encounter with God.”
“Anyone who makes those claims, anyone who’s going to weaponize the (Bible) in that way, I would say to anyone that you need to repent,” he concluded. “This is leading people astray and it’s very, very dangerous.”
Praise God for people like Pastor Glezman who aren’t afraid to speak up against powers and principalities in this world—even his own family. Christians, we can’t be silent any longer. Look what has happened after years of Christian complacency, which often comes at the risk of letting family members live in sin so that we do not offend! We cannot hide God’s truth just to please others. We are called to be lights shining in the darkness, and so we must be, no matter whose feelings it hurts.
