    Pence neighbors in Aspen hang 'Make America Gay Again' banner - Fox News yesterday

    Pence neighbors in Aspen hang 'Make America Gay Again' banner | Fox News

    It's been said that good fences make good neighbors. But in Aspen, Colo., this week, Vice President Mike Pence has something different posted between his vacation lodging and that of the people next door.

    Specifically, it's a rainbow banner reading “Make America Gay Again.” It appeared on a stone pillar in front of the house where Pence and his wife are staying this week.

    The daughters of the couple across the street and one of their girlfriends reportedly draped the rainbow banner on the pillar while a Pitkin County deputy and Secret Service members stood nearby, the Aspen Times reported. The stone pillar is situated at the end of the driveway between the two homes.


    According to the Times, the Secret Service agents were unfazed when the women draped the banner over the pillar, telling them, “We’re not here to control your free speech rights.”

    The women reportedly became less timid afterward, and later brought out chili and corn muffins for the county deputies and Secret Service agents who were stationed at the foot of the driveway.

    While governor of Indiana, Pence signed legislation that critics said encouraged discrimination against gay people, has previously opposed repealing the U.S. military's former “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and once likened marriage equality to “societal collapse” -- positions that have placed him at odds with the LGBTQ community.

    Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo said he is in favor of free speech and that Aspen has a long history of irreverence when it came to powerful people visiting the area.

    The Pence family arrived to Aspen on Tuesday and were expected to leave next week.

    You'd like that, wouldn't you?. Hitlery lost, so we won't see storm trooper actions.

    Either would have been appropriate, as both would have been, He was basically run out of IN for his positions on gay folks.

    Make America Gay Again? Really? Last I checked the number of gays in the U.S. were less than 10%. Yet they have every right in this country as anyone else. So what is your beef?

    It isn't just Pence whose personal beliefs are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It happens to be the majority opinion among evangelicals/Christians. It is also the belief among Muslims. It is also the belief among a good number of Jews. The overwhelming majority of the three major faiths believe marriage is between a male and a female.

    Deal with it.

    Pence was an about to be an out of work, failed politician in Indiana. If it weren't for Trump selecting Pence to appeal to right-wing bigots, Pence would be just a bad memory.

    What's a "good number" for you? It's the 21st century, now. People like you need to deal with it!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Israel

    Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in Israel are the most advanced in the Middle East, and one of the most advanced in Asia.[1]
    Finally, the banner is a play on the "Make American Great Again" slogan. Not surprising the joke is lost on anti-LBGT bigots.

    No I don't have to deal with anything. I respect the individual. Maybe you should try that sometime.
