Mike Pence answers Pete Buttigieg’s criticism-‘He knows better. He knows me’

Vice President Mike Pence defended his opposition to same-sex marriage in an interview Wednesday in which he also scolded Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg for making comments “critical of my Christian faith and about me personally.”

“He knows better,” Pence said in a CNBC interview scheduled to air Thursday. “He knows me.”

Asked by CNBC’s Joe Kernen if his position on marriage equality had evolved in the past two decades as public opinion has shifted, Pence said: “My family and I have a view of marriage that’s informed by our faith.”

“And we stand by that,” Pence continued. “But that doesn’t mean that we’re critical of anyone else who has a different point of view.”
