The South Bend, Ind., mayor is the first openly gay Democrat to run for president. He was interrupted on Tuesday by two protesters who shouted about the cities that the Bible says were ruined by what it considers to be sins, including sodomy. They were quickly drowned out by the crowd of 1,650 people who chanted Buttigieg's name.
"The good news is the condition of my soul is in the hands of God, but the Iowa caucuses are up to you," Buttigieg said in response.
Buttigieg has been outspoken about his Episcopalian faith. He has also feuded with Vice President Pence over Pence's opposition to gay marriage.
