The Bigotry of Mike Pence

During his public career, Pence has been an outspoken opponent of equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens. In Congress, he opposed efforts to encourage foreign governments to decriminalize homosexuality and sought to block the repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. As a governor, he stood against not only marriage equality, but civil unions as well. He also opposed a law prohibiting discrimination against LGBT people in the workplace and signed one opening the door to wide-ranging discrimination against these residents of his own state under the guise of religious liberty.

What causes a politician to do things like that? Why would you go out of your way to actively take away rights of fellow citizens? Ok, he obviously doesn’t like homosexual people.

This country is founded on the principles of equal rights for all. Some people are gay, some are black, some are atheist, some speak Spanish, some are Muslim, some are short, some are tall, and some are female.

But they’re all people.

What gives the white male politicians the right to take away the liberties of others that are not like them? Because they were born white?

White male politicians, leave the people alone. Stay out of their bedrooms, prayer halls, libraries and schools. Let the people live their own lives!

  1. I was just wondering, how would people as Pence react if there was a law which allows, say, bakers to refuse to sell wedding cakes to christians because of their (the bakers’) own personal believes?
