God’s Plan for Mike Pence

posted on December 1, 2017

The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins writes about Vice President Mike Pence and his ostensibly boundless loyalty to President Trump. A former senior advisor said of Pence, “He was this mild-mannered, uber-Christian guy with a Midwestern accent telling voters, ‘Trump is a good man; I know what’s in his heart.’ It was very convincing – you wanted to trust him.” Coppins points out that Pence’s loyalty has paid off; the religious right has enjoyed a largely evangelical cabinet, a conservative Supreme Court justice, and restrictions on abortion. Coppins adds, “Some prominent evangelicals have gone even further to describe Pence’s role – reverently invoking biblical heroes who aligned themselves with flawed worldly leaders to do God’s will.”
