    Back in the days when Pence was a critic of others, those ideals were important. Now they are seemingly not.

    I sometimes envy the way of life in which you can cover things up with references to holy principles and apply them ad hoc.

    If Jesus had said a certain kind of character should not hold a certain position and then changes his mind when it was for his own benefit, he would have been a hypocrite. But he was too wise to do se. He even said some rather wise words about the situation in which Pence has brought himself but I am afraid those words would contradict the Gospel of Mountain Man, particularly the part called The sermon in Trump Tower.
    You still haven't explained how it is a compromise of one's ideals to accept employment with a less than perfect boss. For all you know, Pence could be a positive influence in the Trump administration. You're like the Pharisees who condemned Jesus for eating with sinners.

    Charles couldn't care less about Pence or Trump. This is just his way of attacking us Christians by association ("How dare you so-called Christians support such a hypocrite!?")

    I have to admit I find that joke, and this whole discussion, somewhat offensive. Not personally for me, but for those unborn chickens who suffered during that holocaust.
