Known homophobe Mike Pence delivered a glorious rhetorical gift to the internet yesterday, advising some people at a talk to "spend more time on your knees than on the internet." Yes, he said these words out loud!
The sentence was uttered at a talk hosted by by the Alliance Defending Freedom, an organization that supports discrimination against LGBT people under the guise of religious liberty, according to the Advocate.
So why was Pence compelled to say this? Because the CEO of the group asked him how members of the group could deal with backlash for... you know, being homophobes.
“No. 1 is, spend more time on your knees than on the internet,” he said. He then added, “Forgiveness is a great gift.”
