Why doesn't anyone point out that using the generic term "god" does not mean you are talking about the YAHWEH (our God's only revealed name) of Abraham, Moses and every true-believing Christian. There are many "gods" worshiped in the world today, and I would suggest that Mayor Pete worships someone other than the God of the Bible. YAHWEH is his name.
I have had that argument (sex with my homosexual lover makes me feel closer to god) thrown at me by numerous homosexuals. My consistent response has been "Not closer to the God of Abraham, Moses and every true Christian, who all worship YAHWEH. I don't know who your god is, but it is not Him."
