Pete Buttigieg has openly discussed his sexuality before and during his presidential campaign, but was confronted by a protestor for defending marriage equality at a campaign event in Des Moines, Iowa on Tuesday, per the AP.

Details: As Buttigieg talked about marriage equality, the protester stood up and shouted: “You betray your baptism!” before being removed from the town hall. Per the AP, Buttigieg — whose presidential run is historic as the first openly gay candidate in a same-sex marriage — took the interruption with a light-hearted approach, saying: “Coffee after church gets a little rowdy sometimes.”
