Oh my god. The protester has a fake @PeteButtigieg whipping Jesus on a cross. I have no words.

Homophobes think about gay sex more than gay people think about gay sex which is really f-ing weird.
Imagine being so homophobic you resort to theatre
Everyone knows we Jews killed Christ. Why can鈥檛 we get credit for anything?

you ever notice how media just kind of lets the right wing describe democrats as deviant and weird while they鈥檙e out here doing shit like this
it鈥檚 like a ben garrison cartoon come to life
Thankful for the crazy Christians that make the crazy Muslims look less crazy
Always nice to see local Fetlife groups at political rallies.
Well, the Jesus crowd showed up to Mayor Pete's campaign event this morning to make their homophobic objections clear. 馃憖
These people think two men in love is perverse, and that this is not.
It feels like the stupids are winning

.@PeteButtigieg on stage now. Crowd size is a little under 200 right now.
I'm worried this is only the beginning. Christians, please don't distance yourselves from this stuff. It's violent and dangerous. Speak out against it. Talk to people in your circles about the dignity of LGBTQ people.
In reply to @marcusdipaola
Well, Mel Gibson really decided to go low budget with The Passion sequel
This is what happens when the local theater bans you from performing your one-man show entitled: "Is the Friendzone Terrorism?"
Jesus died in the suburbs so we wouldn鈥檛 have to
I don't have an answer on this, but there's a serious conversation to be had among journalists about how to cover blatantly homophobic displays like this (or racist protests at a black candidate's event!) without acting as a megaphone/viral engine for hatred.
Why do homophobic Christians always make being gay look so fucking hot?
Not to kinkshame, but LMAO
Conservative protestors are all failed drama majors.
Homophobes are far more extra than gay people could ever dream of.
Terry is a bit of a clown, but the National Org for Marriage is also bashing Buttigieg. There was an idea, which Trump made use of, that the gay rights battles were over after Obergefell. Trans military fight/Buttigieg candidacy putting the lie to that.
Either Pete himself hired these people or they are the dumbest protesters ... ever. lol
In reply to @marcusdipaola
Another great reply by @Buttigieg - 鈥淭he good news is,鈥 he said, 鈥渢he condition of my soul is in the hands of God but the Iowa Caucuses are up to you.鈥
鈥淓very vote is a lash on the back of Christ!鈥 This is like so many terrible church and kids鈥/youth mission trip dramas. Peak #HowToEvangelical

It's really hard to get together when you're adults. Everyone has so much on their plate...
It has to be said that hardcore religious people are VERY good at making time and organising things.
In reply to @marcusdipaola
Lol it鈥檚 like cheap community theater!
For those who think anti-gay bigotry ended with the SCOTUS marriage decision.鈥
Not a Gucci belt in sight
why are they trying to make me like this guy
I'm the son of rage and love, the jesus of suburbia

This is a great opportunity for someone to get a loud speaker and play @rihanna's "S&M" back at them.

I'm curious...what were these adult losers up to when Buttigieg was serving his country in the Armed Forces?
Are the Christian straights OK?
In reply to @marcusdipaola
Pete shouldn't worry but the protestors should: they could be sued for intellectual property theft of a Monty Python skit.

These guys do a fine job of discrediting fundamentalist Christianity.

What in the world is the "Freedom Caucus" doing in Iowa.
I can't help but think this is just an excuse to practice their BDSM fetishes in public. 馃し

Is that supposed to be the devil or a pro wrestling manager?
I鈥檝e had dates like that.
I鈥檝e paid to see something like this, except a whole lot nakeder and oilier.
This is somebody鈥檚 extremely specific fetish

One has to wonder, do they just have all of that stuff laying around, or....?
I nominate Jesus for Equity Deputy.
The Republican Party is clearly dominated by reasonable people who we can work with.
In reply to @marcusdipaola
To utilize Jesus' crucifixion as a vehicle for hate and persecution fundamentally betrays the paschal message:

Jesus was executed because he stood against unjust power on behalf of oppressed people. This grotesque display deploys homophobic violence to infllict more pain.
We too need gay presidential candidates, so we can have some right-wing Christian theatre
This is profane and, in our opinion, violates the Third Commandment.
> This is why an openly gay man running for president is so groundbreaking. A not insignificant chunk of Americans believe gay people to be tools of the devil. The question of "gay enough" obscures the larger point: that being openly gay is *radical* in some areas of the country.
It's weird how often right-wing bullshit seems like a repressed sexual fetish gone wrong.
Jesus is my virtue, but Mayor Pete is the demon I cling to
In reply to @TylerHuckabee
Every time I think American fundamentalist idiocy has for sure hit rock bottom, it screws on a new drill bit and tunnels down a few more feet with terrifying abandon like Ben Affleck in Armageddon.
Girl. So much to unpack here
Look, I don't like to kinkshame, but maybe keep your freaky Jesus fetishes in the bedroom.
Why can鈥檛 dems ever actually be as cool as their haters portray them
This is a sex thing isn鈥檛 it
I have new fetish.
Is there a variation of horseshoe theory where sufficiently radical religious rage becomes indistinguishable from BDSM
In reply to @marcusdipaola
If you photoshop that "Mayor Pete" cardboard sign out, it's just a friendly insurance salesman going off.
Every. Single. Democratic. Candidate should be calling this out. This is about hate. It鈥檚 more than about a candidate.

In reply to @marcusdipaola
Now now, let's not kinkshame these fine gentlemen.
Narrator voice: the cishets were in fact, not okay.
Really hope this in-kind donation is appropriately reported to the FEC
So, so weird. Can you imagine...

Can you imagine the torrent of bizarre displays of homophobia (like this) that will be unleashed on this country if @PeteButtigieg gets the nomination?

It will be horribly sad.
Oh my god @tapley_kate just called this 鈥淢ormon BDSM鈥 馃槶馃槶馃槶馃槶
[NPR news host:]

"That was the latest in our 'Keeping It Civil' series on how Americans can reach across the aisle without letting things turn ugly."

"And now, let's go to Iowa, where 鈥"
This is literally a scene from Glen or Glenda.
Just. Wow. I have no words either.
In reply to @marcusdipaola
I'm no authority on Christian belief, but this performance seems sacrilegious? Even the devil costume lacks reverence.
The way to handle these clowns is to point and laugh.
now taking you live to Satan in Pawnee, Indiana

Let me guess. Same people that worship Trump though? 馃檮
In reply to @AngloRemnant
the kind of political spectacle i've been waiting for.
the dramatic homophobes:
It's like they're roleplaying a Ben Garrison cartoon. They even have the labels.
This feels like a false flag. Who cares this much about Mayor Pete
Possibly the greatest political protest since West Pakistan became Bangladesh.
LGBTQ people have reason to beam at the fact that, less than 4 years after nationwide marriage equality & 8 yrs after the end of DADT, a married gay veteran is a serious candidate for president.

But also are nauseating thoughts of the naked bigotry to come鈥攆or some, from family.
This is what the Republicans do with their unemployed time.
