‘Mayor Pete’s Brother in Law Calls on Him to Repent After Using the Bible to Justify Abortion

Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg (D), or ‘Mayor Pete’, tried to justify his stance on abortion recently using the Bible. His brother in law, 34-year-old Rhyan Glezman, a pastor of a church in Michigan, was not thrilled. Glezman, responded on Twitter to a Washington Examiner article that was tweeted out with an excerpt quote at the top of Buttigieg’s saying: “There’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath.”

The full Buttigieg quote from the initial Washington Examiner report that was referenced was:

“Right now, they hold everybody in line with this one piece of doctrine about abortion.” Acknowledging the moral complexity of the issue, he qualified, “Then again, there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath. So even that is something we can interpret differently.”

Paster Rhyan Glezman responded: “My brother in law needs to repent from this radical false teaching. God does not endorse this nonsense, only false religion does.”

Rhyan Glezman, who spoke to the Washington Examiner, had some further details to add as well. In a different report they quote Glezman as saying:

“I feel a sense of responsibility and stewardship of my faith to stand up and say something, to say, ‘No, that’s not true,'” Glezman explained. “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.”

Glezman asserted that Buttigieg’s use of Scripture to defend abortion up to the point of birth was “outrageous,” adding, “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. You’re hypocritical if you don’t stand up for all life. So that’s why I’m speaking out.”

And later in the article:

“What we see is a modern-day Pharisee,” said Glezman, referencing the 1st-century Jewish sect that was notorious for demanding its followers adhere to an exhaustive list of trivial laws to earn God’s favor. “Buttigieg is a person who’s making up their own rules and regulations and, basically, if we don’t celebrate and endorse their interpretation of Scripture, our religion is fallible. And that’s just not true.”

In another tweet chain with Jon Brown from the Daily Caller and Glezman again, Brown quotes above a tweet of the initial report of ‘Bible justification’ saying:

To throw moral weight behind late-term abortion, @PeteButtigieg claimed the Bible says “life begins with breath.”

“It’s his latest use of Christianity to justify his liberal policies, for which reason @TuckerCarlson dubbed him “Father Pete.” Glezman tweeted out: “Bad theology often leads to bad morality and that is what you see with Pete. He is a modern day pharisee inventing new laws and regulations and in his opinion we must abide to his standards to have our faith confirmed.”

This is not the first run in Buttigieg, who is polling at 4.4% according to the latest Real Clear Politics average, has had with his brother in law. Back in May of this year, Glezman accused his brother in law, candidate Buttigieg, of lying about him for political gain.
