Peter On Pence


cjones04212019

Mike Pence was upset. He said Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana and promising presidential candidate had attacked his religion and accused him of discrimination. Pence said, “He said some things that are critical of my Christian faith and about me personally.” Actually, he didn’t attack Pence’s faith. Pence is doing what old, white, conservative men do best and that is pretend to be victimized.

Mayor Pete said, “That’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand. If you got a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.” The closest he came to criticizing Pence’s faith was when he wondered out loud when the pious veep stopped “believing in scripture when he started believing Donald Trump.” He also asked, “How would he allow himself to become the cheerleader for the porn star presidency?”

Surprising no one, Pence didn’t answer those questions. Pence is like all Republicans now. They spent decades fashioning themselves as being closer to God than Democrats only to turn around and get into bed with a man who never goes to church, says “Two Corinthians,” and pays hush money to porn stars. There’s also that constant lying and attacking people thing. Republicans spent years telling us they are the party of family values. As it turns out, they were lying.

In response to Buttigieg’s criticism, Pence defended himself by saying, “I don’t believe in discrimination against anybody.” Oh really?

As governor of Indiana, Pence fought to prevent same-sex couples from obtaining equal parenting rights, supported a measure to ban same-sex marriage in the state, and signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which allowed business owners to refuse service to LGBTQ customers. He’s just as homophobic as vice president as he was as governor. In January, Pence defended his wife’s decision to take a job teaching at a school that bars LGBTQ students and faculty and said people who criticized that were “offensive.”

Additionally, Mike Pence once supported federal funding for gay conversion therapy, which is designed to change “sexual behavior.” No word yet where he stands on Trump-sycophant conversion therapy, but maybe he was just born that way.

Mike Pence is a champion of discrimination. He is almost as good at discrimination as he is at kissing Trump’s ass.

Also, take note that Pence hasn’t criticized the homophobic hecklers who have been following Buttigieg from rally to rally.

Mike Pence’s faith in God may be solid as a rock. His faith in everything else, along with his principles and dignity are for sale.

  1. “Christians” (people who claim to be Christian but really don’t have a clue what their book says) claim the right to discriminate against anybody, and to make their local, state, and preferably federal government discriminate against anybody, and to lay down laws controlling everybody else’s sex life… but if you say that’s wrong, then (gasp!) YOU are prejudiced against religion, and you’re attacking their faith!

    Bullshit. They don’t even read their book. Jesus did not say one word against homosexuals, married with kids or otherwise. What he did condemn repeatedly was being rich. He also said in 3 of the 4 gospels that divorce and remarriage was the same as committing adultery. So if those pious religious folk condemn homosexuals but are just fine with baking a wedding cake for Bob and Sue’s second marriage, you know they’re just “Christians” shoveling the BS.
