Mike Pence to Southern Baptists: "Our Administration Will Always Stand With You"

Earlier today [yesterday], Vice President Mike Pence addressed thousands of attendees at the Southern Baptist Conventionís annual meeting. (It didnít go over well with some people, to the point that the SBCís new president J.D. Greear called the speech ďa terribly mixed signal.Ē)
Still, Pence spoke to them, and this is how he opened the talk:

ďIíll make you a promise: This president, this vice president and our administration will always stand with you.Ē

You know what? Maybe itís good that the administration is coming out in support of Southern Baptists. Because they sure as hell arenít coming out in support of anyone else.

They donít support victims of domestic abuse.

They donít support transgender troops.

They donít support immigrants from African countries.

The donít support immigrants from non-African countries.

They donít support Gold Star parents.

They donít support Muslims.

(etc etc)
---------------
But they support Southern Baptists, who are overwhelmingly white, who look the other way when they learn about abuse (until they have no choice but to deal with it), who believe women canít be ministers, and who believe men must always be the head of the household.

Is anyone surprised that this administration feels right at home with the SBC?
