Memo to Mike Pence: Respect Separation Between Church and State

Vice President Mike Pence shared that he and his wife, Karen, are joining “Christians everywhere in remembering the sacrifice made for us on the Cross.”

Pence tweeted from the Book of Isaiah in the Bible, verse 53:5: “He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed.”

“. . .I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.”

Thomas Jefferson

Christianity may be the predominant religion in America, but the United States is a secular democracy and elected officials should refrain from mentioning God, let alone sermonize in their public utterances.

Declaring that Jesus Christ died for our sins is not an inherently offensive message, and I rejoice when ministers proclaim the Good News to their parishioners.

But when Mike Pence preaches the Gospel in an official capacity it is patently offensive to Muslims, Jews, atheists and everyone, including Christians, who believe that there should be a wall of separation between church and state.  

It is especially jarring to hear Pence proselytize for the evangelical faith when he is the chief enabler and supporter of the most godless person to ever sit in the Oval Office.

Whenever I hear Pence act all sanctimonious I say to myself: STFU! You embrace and gaze adoringly at a man who embodies the spirt of the Antichrist.

There is a special place reserved in hell for the likes of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.

Mike Pence’s Unrequited Love for Donald Trump Will Never Blossom into a Brokeback Mountain Romance

Vice President Mike Pence refers to his wife as “Mother,” a sobriquet you don`t bestow on your significant other if you think of her as a sexual being.

Pence`s true love is Donald Trump, he`s often praised his boss`s “broad shoulders” and cameras always catch him staring lovingly at him the way a high school freshman stares at his homeroom crush.

Pence`s bromance with Trump is one-sided, he perceives Pence as an underling and not as a person worthy of having a serious platonic or sexual relationship with, and he`s oblivious to the homoerotic undertones of his second-in-command`s loyalty.

You may be thinking, “Stop right there brother, Pence is an evangelical who is vehemently opposed to same-sex love.” To which I would respond, “How many times have we seen this movie, the stridently anti-gay conservative turns out to be a latent homosexual.”

Pence`s unrequited love for the stable genius will never blossom into a Brokeback Mountain love story. Trump is decidedly heterosexual and he is too busy looking for pussy to grab, to pay any attention to his obsequious love-struck vice president.

But Pence`s substantial consolation prize may be that his devotion to the Orange Baboon will earn him the support of Trump`s base if he ever decides to run for president himself.

Mike Pence Tweets His Support for ‘Unplanned’

So good to see movie theaters across the country showing @UnplannedMovie — a deeply inspiring new pro-life film based on the best-selling book by @AbbyJohnson. More & more Americans are embracing the sanctity of life because of powerful stories like this one. #Unplanned

Mike Pence Tweet

Mike Pence film critic? I don`t think so!

I haven`t seen Unplanned, and I have no desire to watch it. But if I was considering the merits of the movie I would check the reviews at RottenTomatoes.Com by critics who judge a film based on the literary quality of the screenplay, the acting skills of the thespians, the visual talent of the cinematographer and the artistic vision of the director.

The last thing I would do is seek the advice of an anal-retentive evangelical who judges a motion picture on whether its message is Biblically-correct according to his interpretation of Scripture.

Pence is culturally out-of-step with the vast majority of Americans, while we watch Netflix and chill he watches PureFlix and prays. I`m surprised Pence didn`t warn male moviegoers not to sit next to a woman, lest the wanton woman distracts him from the godly message of the movie and leads him down the path to licentiousness.

Unplanned is evangelical agitprop, and I don`t know about you but I go to the movies as a form of escapism or to learn deeper truths about the human experience, not to be preached to by dour evangelicals.

Mike Pence the Homophobe Meets Openly Gay Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar

Vice President Mike Pence is the face of homophobia and intolerance, the most important persons in his life share his revulsion of gays and lesbians: Trump and Mother.

The notorious homophobe`s wife works at a so-called Christian school that bans members of LGBTS communities.

As a real estate developer and reality TV entertainer Trump was gay-friendly in speech and substance, after all most gays are unencumbered with children and they have the financial means to afford his condos and apartments. And in the entertainment business he met many gay and lesbian artists and discovered that they are normal human beings, no better and no worse than anyone else.

Trump doesn`t share the religiously based animus towards gays and lesbians as his vice president, but since taking office he has pursued a virulently anti-gay agenda to pander to his evangelical base.

Pence had the chutzpah to invite Ireland`s openly gay Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to his official residence for a visit. Pence was probably clutching a cross with one hand and a four-leaf clover with the other to protect him from any possible sexual advance from the Irish Prime Minister.

When reporters asked Varadkar how he felt about being so close to a politician who views homosexuality as a sin and works against the interests of gays and lesbians, he didn`t hold back:

“I lived in a country where if I`d tried to be myself at the time, it would have ended up breaking laws.

I stand here as the leader of my country. Flawed and human, but judged by my political actions, not by my sexual orientation, my skin tone, gender, or religious beliefs.”

We are, after all, all God`s children.”

Bravo! That`s what we Americans call speaking truth to power! If only Pence possessed such remarkable courage and admonished his boss whenever he made a racist statement or attacked someone on Twitter.

Dick Cheney Reams Mike Pence

Evangelical Creep

“A large group of conservative donors and scholars were shocked last weekend after a friendly exchange between Vice President Mike Pence and Dick Cheney, the former vice president, turned tense.

Cheney, a fierce defender of the foreign policy of President George W. Bush, politely questioned the approach of Pence`s boss, President Donald Trump, on foreign policy and national security.”

CNN

Actually by most accounts the “friendly exchange” was more like a grilling, Cheney accused the Trump administration of treating American foreign policy like a “New York real estate deal,” and he demanded answers from the hapless Pence.

The current vice president is normally mild-mannered and even-tempered but he`s a loyal lieutenant and he vociferously defends his boss`s contradictory and irrational domestic and foreign policies.

Most Republican leaders are too afraid to confront Trump, so they take out their frustrations on Pence, they rightly deduce that a milquetoast whose nose is perpetually brown is just going to stand there like a mannequin and take it.

I rarely find common ground with Darth Vader, but Cheney is spot-on: Trump treats foreign policy like a “New York real estate deal.”

When deciding what action to take in hot spots around the globe the stable genius doesn`t take geopolitical concerns or our democratic values into consideration, he merely does a cost-benefit analysis.

Take Syria for example, Trump wanted to remove our troops from the god-forsaken country immediately and precipitously as a cost-saving measure. He didn`t consult with our allies, and he was willing to leave the Kurds to the tender mercies of the brutal Turkish army.

Nobody treats Pence with the deference due a vice president, and he`s in for at least two more years of Cheney-like attacks.

But reaming Pence is as challenging as taking candy from a baby. I wish Republican politicians would grow some gonads, and attack Trump directly for destroying their party and doing indelible harm to our democracy.

Who Says Trump Doesn’t Have a Dog in the White House? What About Mike Pence?

Donald Trump is the first American president in over 130 years not to have a dog in the White House. However, it could be argued that he doesn`t need a dog when he has his human lapdog, Mike Pence. Like any pooch worth his salt Pence stares adoringly at his master, and the brownish tint to his nose is testament of his subservience and loyalty. Pence loves Trump, his vindictive God and Mother, in that order.

A dog is man`s best friend, a narcissist like Trump doesn`t have any genuine friends, but Pence is the president`s favorite sycophant. I wonder if Trump sometimes lets Pence sleep on his bed to reward him for his loyalty – God knows there`s plenty of room in his bed since Melania never sleeps with him.

Trump doesn`t share the spotlight with anyone, and Pence`s sublimation of ego is complete. Pence is like a dog who is so terrified of his cruel master that he never barks or whines. Pence rarely speaks unless spoken to, and when he does speak it`s to praise his master.

Pence is like a dog, but he`s also like a mannequin. Whenever he`s in the presence of his master, the only muscles that he moves are the ones that activate his subservient smile. If Pence is an anatomically-correct mannequin his anus must be the size of the head of a pin.

The White House staff realizes that Pence doesn`t wield any real power, and nobody has any respect for the spineless Mother-loving yes man. However they treat him with deference because if Trump isn`t impeached before the end of his term the actuarial charts will catch up with the obese buffoon.

In that horrible day Pence will let his freak flag fly high, he will demand that his Cabinet hold a Bible study every day, and he will ban sodomites from serving in his administration. Mother will be venerated like the Virgin Mary, and our democracy will be turned into a theocracy.

Democracy in Decline at the Hands of Donald Trump and Mike Pence

Fascist

Nobody was surprised when the opening salvo in Donald Trump`s 2016 presidential campaign was a blatantly racist attack on Mexican immigrants, branding them criminals and rapists.

For decades Trump has fanned the flames of racial controversies, in the 70`s a young Trump and his KKK-loving father were sued over discriminatory rental practices in their New York apartments.

In 1989, after black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were accused of assaulting and raping a white woman in Central Park, Trump spend thousands placing full-page ads in the four daily newspapers in New York City, demanding their execution.

A decade and a half later when their sentences were overturned based on DNA evidence and the confession of the real rapist, Trump refused to apologize.

Trump ran a racist campaign, demonizing Muslims and Hispanic immigrants to appeal to his racist white evangelical base, and his presidency has been marked by racist tweets, comments and policies.

Once again I`m not surprised, very few racists ever have an epiphany.

But I am somewhat surprised by Trump`s anti-gay sentiments and policies since he became president. Trump has been a life-long racist, but as a businessman and as a reality TV star he never expressed any homophobic views. As an entertainer he had contact with many gays and lesbians in the entertainment industry, and he was friendly with many of them.

But when he made common cause with white evangelicals in order to win the presidency he adopted their anti-gay agenda. Hence his choice of the anti-gay bigot Mike Pence as his vice president and the banning of transgender soldiers from the military.

Pence is explicitly anti-LGBTQ, and has been throughout his political career. Pence uses his extreme brand of Christianity to justify his right to discriminate. He quotes scripture to justify treating women and gays and lesbians as second-class citizens.

Trump recognizes Pence as an anal-retentive religious zealot, but he gives his second-in-command free rein to treat gays and lesbians with disdain, because he realizes it solidifies his support with his evangelical base.

Trump and Pence are the most damaging one-two punch democracy has suffered in our lifetimes, and everyone who loves freedom and democracy must devote their lives to the impeachment and removal from office of both of them.

Despite Mike Pence’s Obsequiousness Donald Trump Treats Him Like Dirt

Mr. Brown Nose

When a woman signs a contract to work as an exotic dancer at a strip club she knows that she`s in for world of humiliation besides the inherent degradation of exposing her body parts to leering and ogling men for a few dollars.

She won`t have union representation, health insurance or any fringe benefits. The owner of the club will expect her to perform lap dances and other sexual favors for paying customers, ultimately she`s as disposable as a dirty and ripped pair of thongs.

When a person accepts a position in the Trump administration he knows that he is in for a world of humiliation. We have witnessed a parade of captains of industry, educators and politicians accept positions in Trump`s administration only to resign or be fired months later with their dignity and reputation in shatters. In Trump`s world respected career politicians and even generals are as disposable as one of his wives who has reached her expiration date.

Vice President Mike Pence is no exception to this rule despite his obsequiousness and servile attitude towards his master, he has repeatedly been humiliated by him.

Trump`s treatment of Pence during the shutdown is just the latest example. Trump initially signaled that he would back a funding bill without money for his precious wall, dispatching Pence to the Senate to tell Republicans that he was on board.

But as he is wont to do Trump later reversed himself after Ann Coulter and other far right loonies ripped him a new a-hole, leaving Pence looking pitiful, powerless and pathetic.

When the government shut down, Trump again dispatched Pence to the Senate, and he worked out a compromise deal with the Democrats of only $2.5 billion in wall funding.

But Trump made his loyal second-in-command look like a fool again, bellowing at a cabinet meeting that he wouldn`t accept anything less than $5.6 billion for his wall.

I have no sympathy for a stripper who is treated like dirt as a strip club, she knew the humiliations she would suffer in her chosen profession, and I have no sympathy for anyone who accepts a position in the White House, they knew full well that the stable genius is the mayor of Crazytown.

Chris Evans Calls Mike Pence an Obsequious Little Worm

Gay Gentleman

Wow. @VP is an obsequious little worm desperately trying to sanitize Trump`s lies. He has no shame. Keep tap dancing you fool. We all see you.

Chris Evans Tweet

This was the reaction of the Captain America actor after witnessing Mike Pence`s ridiculous attempt to explain Trump`s preposterous claim that past presidents had told him that building a border wall was necessary.

Trump`s claim was patently false, all the living former presidents despise him, and they have absolutely no correspondence with him. They have all made statements denouncing Trump`s proposed wall.

Journalists would be well-advised to adopt Evans` tone when faced with a staffer who is verbally contorting himself trying to explain his boss`s lies.

This is the exchange that got Evan`s blood boiling:

NBC Reporter Hallie Jackson: Which former presidents told President Trump, as he said, that he should have built a wall? All of their representatives have denied that that was the case.

Pence: I know the President has said that that was his impression from previous administrations, previous presidents. I know I`ve seen clips of previous presidents talking about the importance of border security, the importance of addressing the issue of illegal immigration.

Jackson: That`s different from telling the President, though, right?

Pence: Look, honestly, the American people, the American people want us to address this issue.

Jackson is a fine reporter, but she should have adopted a more adversarial tone, and rebuked the VP for attempting to whitewash Trump`s flagrant lie.

Pence is an obsequious little piece of shit, and covering up Trump`s lies has left him with a brown nose and a black heart.

Just How Gay is Mike Pence?

Handsome gay gentleman

“If Mike Pence is so inclined, he has a seat reserved for him to watch Broadway`s The Prom, the new Broadway musical that made history in November by giving the Macy`s Thanksgiving Day Parade its first televised same-sex kiss ever.

The vice president, who has taken multiple anti-LGBT positions over the years, has been personally invited to watch the show that follows a lesbian girl`s efforts to take her girlfriend to prom in Indiana. In fact, the location was specifically chosen because it is Pence`s home state, according to The Prom`s co-writer and lyricist Chad Beguelin.

People

Mike Pence`s meticulously cut hairstyle is favored by a maître d`hôtel at a restaurant that caters to an exclusively gay clientele and a receptionist at a gay bathhouse, naturally there are rumors that the virulently anti-gay politician is a latent homosexual.

Pence famously calls his wife “Mother,” a clear indication that he doesn`t think of her in sexual terms. If Pence succeeds Trump as president I wouldn`t be surprised if everyone in his cabinet looked like a pool boy at a gay resort.

In November 2016, Pence was booed by a Broadway audience when he went to see Hamilton with his family, he might have reservations about attending another Broadway show.

I doubt Pence will attend considering “The Prom” features lesbians kissing, if the show featured gay hunks locking lips he would find an excuse to attend. He could always leave when the male leads lock lips, and explain to his evangelical base that he watched the hit Broadway show only to make a statement against gay sexuality.

Pence should do the right thing and come out of the closet and become a champion for gay rights. It would be a shame if he spent the rest of his life in his prayer closet getting real intimate with his male prayer partners.
