Glezman said he believes Buttigieg is creeping into dangerous territory when he uses the Bible to buttress his radical positions on things such as late-term abortion. “This isn’t a little issue, especially when we’re talking about life,” he said. “This is not just a political conversation. We’re talking about human life. These are human beings.” Glezman maintains that his brother-in-law has “manipulated” and “weaponized” the Bible to appeal to a wider demographic of liberal Democrats, which makes him “a false teacher,” as far he’s concerned.

“What we see is a modern-day Pharisee,” said Glezman, referencing the 1st-century Jewish sect that was notorious for demanding its followers adhere to an exhaustive list of trivial laws to earn God’s favor. “Buttigieg is a person who’s making up their own rules and regulations and, basically, if we don’t celebrate and endorse their interpretation of Scripture, our religion is fallible. And that’s just not true.”
