Why we shouldn't trust Pence's pious face






“How can you know what I might do, or be?
Is it on my good actions that you base
Your favor? Do you trust my pious face?
Ah, no, don’t be deceived by hollow shows;
I’m far, alas, from being what men suppose;”   {Moliere’s title character, Tartuffe]


Mike Pence acts as if a saint.

But if you’re Trump’s VP, you ain’t!

  • Well, Pence isn't acting like he had nothing to do with the Florida mad attempted bomber, who had the same targets the insane tweeter did.

    You'll remember about 2 years ago that I replied to the Breitbart troll that I'm not voting for someone who accepted the support of the American Nazi Party. It's possible that's also part of Indiana politics, but Pence's boss seemed to embrace it. Well, we saw a result of that yesterday. I don't know what Southern Baptists do, but other than the Israeli Army, Jews don't carry on the Sabbath (except cell phones), and certainly not heat.In fact, I'm offended by the several Pennsylvania politicians who said those in the synagogue were worshiping "their God." The Lord is One, although maybe not Pence's Lord.

  • If our God is Pence's Lord, he's got a lot to answer for, you think.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Not as much as his boss's. For instance, his obsession with "mother" seems to keep him from grabbing puddy tats.

    I don't have a use for theocracy, but I don't know the Greek-derived word for a fascist state of psychosis. Maybe it is Kassopolis.

    I once saw him at the Tribune on a field trip. Not a friendly guy. He could have welcomed the children, but didn't. Impressions last a lifetime.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    This is part of why I cling to the Bible verse which counsels "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." It doesn't say figure out anyone else's.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Basically, I subscribe to the First Amendment Religion Clause view that anyone (even Pence) can believe what one wants, religion speaking, so long as nobody uses it to harm or convert anyone else. Also, as can be frequently gleaned from my posts, I don't countenance hypocrites (even if the Lord lets his countenance shine upon you).
