Franklin Graham, one of the country’s most well-known evangelical Christians, took to Twitter Wednesday to respond to Mayor Pete Buttigieg, an openly gay 2020 presidential candidate who appeared at a televised town hall a day earlier.

Graham called homosexuality a “sin” and “something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized,” in a tweet Wednesday.

In a CNN town hall Tuesday, Buttigieg said, “I get that one of the things about Scripture is different people see different things in it.”
