Heaven help those who are gay, but not gay enough. Pete Buttigieg is facing cancel culture. A photo has surfaced of the openly-gay presidential candidate helping ring a bell for the Salvation Army in 2017, leading to swift condemnation from the radical left.
Out Magazine launched its attack with the headline: Pete Buttigieg Volunteered for the Homophobic Salvation Army. The author, Rose Dommu, said:
It’s nice to see politicians using their platforms to give back to their communities during the holiday season — except when they do it with organizations that historically exclude LGBTQ+ people.
More than one LGBT advocate was fuming. Zack Ford, press secretary for the Alliance for Justice, wrote:
I know the photos are two years old, but still, I can’t help but wonder if Mayor Pete just looks at what LGBTQ activists have been working on for years and then chooses to spite it (e.g. Salvation Army, Chick-fil-A, queer media in general, etc).
Pete Buttigieg has a rocky relationship with the gay media. In September he said he has avoided LGBTQ media because he is being attacked for appearing too masculine. Apparently, he is the “wrong kind of gay.”
The “Out” article concluded:
Maybe Pete Buttigieg should have supported an organization that was created to cater to the needs of queer people — there’s plenty of them!
In 2019, it is unclear which carries more status: victimhood or perversity. In all ways, it seems to be a race to the bottom.

Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil...
“JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.”
