If Mike Pence gets booed at a convention of church-goers, there must not be any safe, friendly venues where he can speechify.

I am no fan of Mike Pence but the angry response he received at the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference in Florida on Friday was rather unseemly. He faithfully fulfilled his constitutional duty, is ushered to safety ahead of an angry mob and he gets nothing but grief for his trouble...especially from his former running-mate, Donald Trump.

I have been disabused of my naive notion that religious people are polite and respectful.

The Indianapolis Star reported that former Vice President Mike Pence was greeted with boos and cries of "traitor!" while speaking at the conference.

According to the Star, the dissatisfaction of some conference attendees likely comes from Pence's refusal to block the Congress' certification of President Joe Biden's electoral win on Jan. 6.

    In the clip you showed, Pence's applause line: "Christian, conservative, Republican in that order," was well received. Certainly, there was a wacko, maybe two, heckling in the background.

    The GOPs are in the midst of a moment of transition. Who and what they are will probably be determined by who they nominate for President next time around...if s/he wins.

    That Mike Pence got a polite response to his tried and true "...in that order" go to line at a convention of the faithful is rather a low bar. It's like asking the patrons of a Boston bar "are there any Red Sox fans here?"

    Funny how the Republicans are transitioning yet they are suspicious of individuals who transition.
