There are a lot of articles already posted about Mike Pence…
The 3 things you need to know, The 10 things you need to know, Everything you need to know.
From my perspective, there seems to be one thing that informs pretty much everything he says and does.
He’s an Evangelical Christian.
Oh good. I know so many reasonable, educated, evangelical Christians… On a Christian broadcast network, he said “For me it all begins with faith; it begins with what matters most, and I try and put what I believe to be moral truth first. My philosophy of government second. And my politics third.”
Here is a great example of what he thinks ‘matters most’, defending the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which allows people to legally discriminate against gay and lesbian couples. Can you count the number of time he says “Hoosier(s)”?
“The law got so much attention that at the 2015 White House correspondents’ dinner, President Obama joked he and Vice President Biden were so close that “in some places in Indiana, they won’t serve us pizza anymore.” Source: Washington Post
But that can’t be. There must be more to this guy than Leviticus and abortion and sexuality, right?
Well, turns out he’s in favor of protecting people from government persecution, so we’ve got that going for us. Here is a video showing just how much he is in favor of protecting people from government persecution.
Wait, wait. Seriously. There has to be something else Mike Pence has done. He’s a deeply religious man, so, he must be in favor of feeding the hungry. Maybe Fox News will provide a more fair and balanced look into his views on this biblical teaching.
Fair point, Mike. I’m feeling pretty “enobbled” right now. I’m honestly curious if there is any more to this guy than pandering to the religious right?
Wasn’t Trump going to win Indiana anyway? Didn’t he already cater to our religious extremists (ie, crazy christians) by being against their religious extremists (ie, ISIS)?
Does he think that because Ohio is geographically close to Indiana that it would help his chances in that legitimate swing state?
Or was Mike Pence the only person who actually agreed to be his VP?
Not to get too petty, but don’t you think someone should have told his paid search team to stop bidding on terms trying to get people to “chip in” to his re-election campaign? Here is a screen shot captured the evening of July 14th.
Out of curiosity, I clicked on the ad, and found that even if I wanted to contribute to “Mike’s fight for hardworking Hoosiers”, I couldn’t. The oh-so-convenient floating left navigation bar was in the way. That’s a shame – I was really hoping for an easy donation option somewhere between $100 and $500.
