The problem, Mike Pence, is that you have to ask for forgiveness
Mike Pence wants Christians to forgive Trump. But Trump has no remorse and hasn’t asked for forgiveness.
Pence urged Christian college students on Wednesday to vote for Donald Trump despite his behavior, continuing his damage control efforts as the tape controversy continues this week.
Pence spoke to the convocation of Liberty University, an evangelical university that was founded by Jerry Falwell and is now run by Falwell’s son, who like other Christian right leaders has stuck with Trump even in the wake of the explosive tape showing Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women and using vulgar language. The appearance emphasized Pence’s role, especially in the context of the scandal, of interpreting and excusing Trump for more socially conservative audiences.
“As Christians we’re called to forgive,” Pence said. “My running mate showed humility, showed what was in his heart to the American people.”
He showed humility? Really?
