Mike Pence's questionable history with LGBTQ issues has been long and well-documented. Perhaps most shocking, however, is that he makes so little effort to correct his course.

Pence recently visited the Holy City Church of God in Christ in Memphis, Tennessee to speak. While he was there, the pastor gave an incredibly homophobic sermon, saying LGBTQ people were possessed by demons.


The pastor's speech, which was streamed on the White House's official website and YouTube account, featured Bishop Jerry Wayne Taylor describing Pence as "one of the most persecuted Christians in America."

In his speech, given mere moments after Pence spoke, said that gay people were possessed by the Devil.

"We have to encourage young men and women to get married. It's a demonic spirit that causes a woman to want to lie with another woman. It's a demonic spirit that causes a man to be attracted to another man."


He also said:

"If a man gets attracted to me, he's gonna be in trouble. Don't put your hands on me! Amen. God didn't make us for that."



The Bishop then made this joke to loud cheers:

"He made a man to be a man. If you want to know what God made you, when you go to the bathroom, just check your plumbing. What kind of plumbing are you using?"




Adding inaccuracy to his homophobia, the pastor then falsely said homosexuality must be caused by the devil because animals don't exhibit homosexual behavior (many do).

"You never see two male animals coming together. Animals have not left the place that God called them to be in, they stay in that place. We've got to expose what the devil is doing, y'all."


During his speech, Vice President Pence promised to "stand strong for the values that you hold dear."

Overall, people were exhausted that one of our most powerful representatives in government continues to support anti-LGBTQ causes.

But goodness knows we won't have long to wait before Vice President Pence gives us another opportunity to be disgusted.

There is so much to learn in life.

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

Yeah, not possible.

Knowledge is power and sometimes it's a nightmare.

Don't we have enough to keep us up at night?

Damn curiosity.

Well let's do some learning.

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
