Mike Pence Opposes Word ‘Vice’ On Religious Grounds, Doesn’t Want To Be Called Vice Presidential Candidate | Huffington Post

“… Pence’s comment about Duke came in response to a question after Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate for president, referred to Trump supporters, including Duke, as a “ basket of deplorables.”

Pence was asked during his press conference if he condemned the word ‘vice’ on Christian principles, why then didn’t he condemn the Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist organization, that openly participates in immoral and wicked behavior?

‘I would,’ he answered. ‘But if we start criticizing deplorables, we run the risk of losing half our voters.’ Pence, who regularly touts his Christian faith, often describes himself as “a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.”

    Well we wouldn’t want Mike Pence to alienate the KKK, they’re a fine, upstanding organization…Mike Pence also said women are “getting raped to get abortions”, so yeah, he should be the KKK’s poster child (because sane, rational people will not endorse him, or his running mate)

    He’s a young earth creationist and a climate change denier, and that’s all anyone needs to know about him.

      John,

      Please cite your sources concerning Pence and young earth creationism.

      And since when was denying the global warming hoax a bad thing?

      And isn’t change what climate does naturally?

        club,

        If you had a brain in that sweet little head of yours you would ask yourself why is a so-called science magazine publishing a political opinion editorial.

        Yes, political opinion is what serves as “the news” in left wing rags like Scientific American.

        John,

        You’ve obviously never even bothered to watch the video of Pence that you linked to.

        Pence never advocated young earth creationism.

        And his critique of the Theory of Evolution was spot on…

        …from a purely scientific and reasonable point of view.

        You’ve obviously been caught in another of your famous lies.

        Why do atheists have to lie about everything?

        You are kidding, right? You do know Intelligent Design is code for Creationism…. something he wants taught in schools.

        MATTHEWS: I think you believe in evolution but you‘re afraid to say so because your conservative constituency might find that offensive.

        PENCE: No, I’ve said to you, Chris, I believe with all my heart that God created the heavens and the earth, the seas and all that is in them.

        MATTHEWS: Right.

        PENCE: How he did that, I‘ll ask him about some day.

        But hey, if Pence isn’t a Young Earth Creationist, then perhaps he could come out and actually say he believes Evolutionary Theory to be fact.

        Pence:

        “I believe that God created the known universe, the earth and everything in it, including man,” Pence said. “And I also believe that someday scientists will come to see that only the theory of intelligent design provides even a remotely rational explanation for the known universe.”

        John,

        You are lying again.

        Creationism isn’t a code for anything.

        Just as the Theory of Evolution is not code for atheism.

        The Theory of Evolution has holes in it.

        And Pence pointed them out rationally and intelligently.

        His request was that the holes in the Theory of Evolution be taught in public schools along with the Theory of Creation, which is perfectly reasonable.

        Young earth creationism is clearly bogus and a rejection of science just as atheism is a rejection of science.

        Your attempt to link Pence to your own rejection of science is contemptible to say the least.

    I can’t wait for November 8. I’m a bit tired of this campaign. I don’t want to say or hear how bad Trump is. I don’t want to see Trump’s face anymore or read about him on the front pages. I just want him to go into oblivion and never come back.

        Given his personality, he always did and always will try to get into the spotlight. I don’t mind him becoming a global warming activist like Al Gore (he might, just to make the news), start another reality show, failed or successful (I don’t care) business empire, or even become a Grand Wizard of the KKK. It will be possible to ignore him as I always have. I have never watched “The Apprentice” or paid any attention to this clown. But this reality show is a bit harder to ignore. The possibility of him becoming a president has too many global implications. It’s hard to believe that this is for real.

        I hope not, but I hate making predictions of that kind. All who I know loathe Trump and I have not seen favorable coverage of him in mainstream media. But, apparently, there is a parallel universe out there with a lot of people living in it.

        I feel that in this election most people on both sides will vote against and not for a candidate. It’s a shame we have to choose between those two.

    Quotes from the article:
    “The Bible says that the Lord helps those who help themselves,” Pence responded.

    “But governor,” the reporter responded, “that phrase is not in the Bible.”

    “Never mind,” Pence responded, “it’s in the Republican Bible.

    Are these actual quotes? I mean, I know that the republicans are crazy, but I would think at least some christian republicans would object to him having his own “bible”.
    And aren’t any christians somewhat peeved that the guy clearly hasn’t read the bible? One would think that if you’re a christian voting for another christian, you would want him to actually know his stuff.

    His comment about losing half their voters is somewhat amusing, but at least honest. He is actually admitting that he is a despicable human being, and that half of all republicans are despicable as well.
    It makes me wonder what country USA actually is, if politicians can get away with admitting that their own voters are KKK supporters. That’s insane. =-O

      One of the Bible’s prominent messages is that people need to help themselves.

      The leftist, Democrat Party operative, posing as a reporter obviously doesn’t know his Bible.

        Where does it say this “One of the Bible’s prominent messages is that people need to help themselves.”, SOM? Please do show us.

        now, since I have read the bible. I know it doesn’t say that at all. It says that one should depend on God for everything e.g. when JC talks about the lilies of the field (matthew 6)

        And here too: Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding

        Jeremiah 17:5-9
        Psalm 62:5-12
        John 6:63
        1 Peter 5:7
        Phillipians 4:19
        2 Corinthians 1:9

        Now, SOM, why would you, a Christian, lie about what your bible says?

        Agrudensky,

        Please don’t blame me for your intellectual laziness and your biblical illiteracy.

        I don’t cite references to you folks because you aren’t interested in references.

        However, you are interested in ending the conversation and asking for references is the standard tactic of the ignoramus who poses as a person of wit.

        Get off your lazy ass and go read the Bible.

        The facts I state for you are so obvious that any lame brain can comprehend them independent of outside help.

        God didn’t magically transport the Hebrews to the Promised Land.

        Jesus stated multiple times what people need to do to be disciples.

        And Saint James is credited with the famous quote: “Faith without works is dead.”

        The provincial ignoramus demands that foreign cultures express themselves just so.

        Please get a brain of your own and get it trained to think and then get it educated.

        That way you won’t be such a waste of time.
