VP Pence tours Indonesian mosque in outreach to Muslims
Source: AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE
US Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday toured the biggest mosque in Muslim-majority Indonesia during a visit seen as a highly symbolic gesture from an administration that has been accused of stoking Islamophobia.
After kicking off his stop in the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country by praising its moderate Islam as “an inspiration”, he visited Istiqlal Mosque, whose vast white dome towers over downtown Jakarta.
He slipped off his shoes before being guided around the mosque, which is also the biggest in Southeast Asia, accompanied by his wife and two daughters in headscarves, as well as Istiqlal’s grand imam.
His visit represents the most high-profile outreach to Muslims by the Donald Trump administration since the brash billionaire came to office and echoes a similar trip by Barack and Michelle Obama in 2010.

4. He's gazing towards heaven
where he will look down on all the heathens when jebus takes him.
He's secretly thinking: "Sorry, folks, you're all doomed. Only super-special xtians like me are saved."
