Most Hypocritical Quote of the Week – April 16, 2022

“I’d look them in the eye and tell them, ‘I love you.’”

Former Vice President Mike Pence, in a speech at the University of Virginia

During a Q&A session after the speech, a student asked, “I’m just wondering if one of your children came out to you as gay, how would you respond?  What would you tell them?”

After the audience applauded his response, Pence added, “Let me say on this issue … if we got to know each other, you’d know the Pences love everybody. We treat everybody the way we want to be treated.

However, he went on to say, “But on this issue, and it’s frankly something that when the Obergefell decision was made which legalized same-sex marriage in America, the Supreme Court, Justice [Anthony] Kennedy wrote at the end, that this decision will likely create an intersection and tension between people in same-sex relationships and people in the exercise of their religious liberty.”
