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

By Robert Paul Reyes

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.
