Everyone should see Mike Pence’s cowardly refusal to acknowledge anti-LGBT discrimination

One of the largest LGBT civil rights advocacy groups wants you to know who Donald Trump‘s nominee for Vice President is.

In a somewhat prophetic video released in March of 2015, The Human Rights Campaign created a little mashup of a then-recent appearance of Indiana Governor Mike Pence on ABC’s This Week with anchor George Stephanopoulos.

Time and time again, Stephanopoulos tried to get Pence to clarify where he stands on discrimination against gays and lesbians, and time and time again, Pence does everything he can – rather inartfully – to avoid answering the question directly.

It’s a powerful reminder of the hypocrisy of religious conservatives and their puppet politicians, who claim to be doing God’s work but are ashamed to voice their convictions when called out.
