The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, says his feeling “is that the Scripture is about protecting the stranger, the prisoner, the poor person, and that idea of welcome.” That’s what I get in the Gospel when I’m in church.” He said ’s view “has a lot more to do with sexuality, a certain view of rectitude.”

says he is puzzled by ’s strong support for the president.

He asks how “could allow himself to become the cheerleader of the porn star presidency?” and adds, “Is it that he stopped believing in Scripture, when he started believing in Donald Trump?”
