Al Franken Warns Christian ‘Zealot’ Pence Worse Than Trump

Impeachment worries: Senator Al Franken warns Mike Pence is a dangerous Christian “zealot” who “would be worse” than Donald Trump.http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2017/06/al-franken-warns-christian-zealot-pence-worse-trump/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=BRSS&utm_campaign=Nonreligious&utm_content=367Senator Al Franken (Image via Screen Grab)

In a recent interview Senator Al Franken discussed the possible ramifications of impeaching President Donald Trump. In particular, Franken is concerned that as president, Mike Pence would be worse that Trump on domestic policy because Pence is a dangerous Christian “zealot.”

Speaking about a potential Pence presidency, Franken told International Business Times that Pence would be worse than Trump, at least on domestic policy, because he is too “ideological” and a “zealot.”

Franken said:

Pence ran the transition and some of the very worst nominees, I felt — [EPA chief Scott] Pruitt, [Education Secretary Betsy] DeVos, [HHS Secretary Tom] Price, [Budget director Mick] Mulvaney — were Pence selections…

He’s ideological, I consider him a zealot, and I think that in terms of a lot of domestic policy [Pence] certainly would be worse than Trump.

Franken is right. President Trump may be a buffoon, but a President Pence would bring ruin upon the nation and turn the U.S. into a Christian theocracy.

As Trump’s troubles continue to grow, conservatives and liberals alike are wrestling with the very real possibility that Trump will be forced out of office due to scandal and/or incompetence, leaving a President Mike Pence in charge of the nation.

Many conservatives are happy with the prospect of Trump leaving office and a President Pence taking control. They see Pence as a traditional and predictable Republican, and many are sympathetic to his radical religious extremism.

However, for liberals, progressives, and others who value the secular values upon which this nation was founded, a President Pence would be a disaster.

Pence, who is fond of saying he is “a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order,” is an anti-science, anti-gay,  anti-woman, religious extremist.

In fact, the former Indiana Governor and current Vice President is a conservative Christian nightmare who rejects the separation of church and state, and places his Christian faith above the U.S. Constitution.

Bottom line: Pence is a cold, cruel, Christian zealot – a radical religious extremist. If given the chance, a President Pence would ruin the nation and turn the U.S. into a Christian theocracy.
