2. Above Everything Else, Mike Pence Is a Christian

One thing about Pence hasn’t changed since he’s become the Vice President, and that’s his commitment to being Jesus-riffic. While speaking at a conservative (obviously) event in 2010, Pence proudly said, “I’m a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.” To be more specific, the VP is an evangelical Christian, which means, among other things, he believes that being his kind of Christian is the only way to get into heaven, that preaching the word of Jesus is for the good of humanity at large, and that the Bible should be taken literally. It’s a fine set of beliefs for the average person (who lives far away from me), but it’s a scary thing to be passionate about when your daily dealings involves dealing with people of different faiths who are equally passionate.
