Vice President Mike Pence has made some risky moves lately, like walking out to the Korean DMZ against security protocol, but that doesn’t compare to going to a Muslim country and insulting radical Islam.
In his own, kind way of course. He’s not an idiot. He’s simply brave, something we failed to see from our last President.
While in Indonesia, Vice President Pence toured the largest Mosque in Southeast Asia and praised their commitment to the moderate form of Islam.
“As the largest majority Muslim country, Indonesia’s tradition of modern Islam, frankly, is the inspiration to the world.”
You know, the kind that doesn’t endeavor to marry children and kill infidels? That’s the kind that the rest of the world should accept.
“We commend you and your people. In your nation as in mine, religion unifies — it doesn’t divide. It gives us hope for a brighter future. And we’re all grateful for the great inspiration that Indonesia provides for the world.”
In a move that could be deemed controversial, Pence’s wife Karen and their two daughters wore headscarves while touring the Mosque. While some may see that as bowing to the religion, keep in mind that they didn’t do it because they were forced to, they did it because it was polite and their hosts didn’t demand they do it, “or else.”
Afterward, Pence remarked on America’s relationship with Indonesia.
“As the second- and third-largest democracies in the world, our two countries share many common values including freedom, the rule of law, human rights and religious diversity. The United States is proud to partner with Indonesia. It promotes and protects these values.”
He also took shots at the media, who tried their hardest to make it seem like Trump was attempting to ban all Muslims from entering the United States.
“Rest assured, under President Trump, the United States welcomes all who share our values for that brighter future.”
We need to stand with Moderate Muslims who will help us fight against radical Islam.
