“While some have been opposed to Pence in claiming that he is anti-homosexual — from Pete Buttigieg to Lady Gaga — Pence defended the Trump administration in February 2017 in its decision to retain an Obama-era order banning groups that contract with the federal government from “discriminating” against homosexuals and transgenders in their business or non-profit organization.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News Network) U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, who is openly homosexual, told reporters this past week that Vice President Mike Pence is “on board” with his plan to urge nations worldwide to decriminalize homosexuality.
Grenell spoke with Fox & Friends on Tuesday in regard to his remarks about Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, also a homosexual, who has characterized Pence as being “anti-gay.” Grenell had stated on a recent broadcast of “The Story With Martha McCallum” that Buttigieg’s assertions are a “hate hoax along the lines of Jussie Smollett.”
“Mike and Karen are great people. They’re godly people. They’re followers of Christ. They don’t have hate in their heart for anyone. They know my partner [and] they have accepted us,” he said, according to a report from Fox. “You asked me do we agree philosophically on every single issue? No.”
As previously reported, Pence swore Grenell into office last May as his “partner,” Matt Lashey, held the Bible.
“Ric, I know you’ve got a lot of friends from many years here, but most importantly, you’ve got people that you cherish, and your family. I want to acknowledge your mother Judi, who’s with us today; your brothers, Jeff and Brad; your partner, Matt Lashey; and his parents, Dave and Nancy; and many others,” Pence said during the occasion.
