At the most recent Democratic debate, Pete Buttigieg seemed to tie his religious redemption to his behavior, claiming that his salvation "has to do with how I make myself useful" to marginalized and oppressed people.

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was responding to claims by presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) that she would represent "leadership…[that] has worked with and have the experience of working with" diverse groups of Americans, including minorities, LGBT citizens, and women.

Buttigieg responded by saying that he "welcome[s] the challenge of connecting with black voters in America."

"I care about this because my faith teaches me that salvation has to do with how I make myself useful to those who have been excluded, marginalized, and cast aside and oppressed in society," he said.
