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 are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
