    A prominent priest at an Atlanta superchurch went after out governmental prospect Pete Buttigieg.

    Bishop Paul S. Morton Sr., owner of the Full Scripture Baptist Church Fellowship International, says Democrats have to not choose a male wed to one more guy for head of state.

    \" Dems I pray U will certainly use knowledge in voting. Being too liberal will not win,\" Morton tweeted. \"I am not Homophobic. However it is definitely not the time 4 POTUS 2b a male with his other half up there by his side. There are those of us who like everybody But we believe in the Scriptural Meaning of Marital Relationship.\"

    The remark has upset LGBTQ politicians within the Black community. Florida lawmaker Shevrin Jones, that came out as gay last year, drew attention to words on Thursday.

    \" It has taken me a whole week to refine this declaration from someone that I have sang his songs in church as well as cried from his messages preached,\" Jones reacted. \"Bishop, with all due regard, this declaration is far from the love Christ reveals to us everyday. There's no 'BUT' crazy.\"

    Jones recommended the comments most likely pain participants of Morton's members that identify as LGBTQ.

    Morton responded to Jones, claiming his very own thoughts were also practical and also political.

    \" My opinion is numerous individuals running will certainly not b able 2 win in 2020. That's not dislike that's fact in love,\" he wrote. \"Question is what will people b all set 4 in 2020? A legitimate conversation. You don't like my opinion and also I do not like your own an I still Love U.\"

    \" However that are you to claim what America awaits? Were they ready for Barack Obama as the initial black president?\" he said. \"They didn't choose his color, they chose his plans. If Pete Buttigieg wins, it's due to the fact that they were driven by his plans not his sexuality.\"
