After protesters shouted references to the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah during a campaign event earlier this week for openly gay Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, an MSNBC political analyst defended the South Bend, Indiana, mayor — and blasted Christians who speak out against LGBTQ issues and abortion.
Maxwell then tore into Christians who openly oppose progressive ideals in support of LGBTQ rights and same-sex marriage.
A pair of protesters at the Tuesday event in Fort Dodge, Iowa, shouted about Sodom and Gomorrah during Buttigieg's speech, the Hill reported.
However, the crowd of 1,650 people at Buttigieg's event shouted down the protesters and chanted his name, the Hill added.
Buttigieg made huge headlines earlier this month when he targeted Vice President Mike Pence, who is opposed to gay marriage.
