Neighbors Hang 'Make America Gay Again' Sign at Mike Pence's Colorado Home

Neighbors Hang 'Make America Gay Again' Sign at Mike Pence's Colorado Home

A rainbow flag that says, "MAKE AMERICA GAY AGAIN", was hung at a home near Vice President Mike Pence's Colorado vacation home.

Pitkin County sheriff's deputy Michael Buglione tells the Aspen Times that Secret Service agents weren't bothered by the sign.

"[The neighbor] was real sheepish and thought [they] might be confronted by the Secret Service or deputies who'd tell [them they] couldn't do it", DiSalvo told The Aspen Times. According to Mike Pence gay is a choice, and he has said keeping gays from marrying is not discrimination but an enforcement of "God's idea".

'When they said: "We're not here to control your free speech rights", they came out with chili and began feeding them.

"(The banners) were actually hung by the daughters of the couple who live in the home, and one of their girlfriends (I'm one of them!) with the full support of their parents", Shannon Slade wrote in the email.

Pence has regularly been criticized for signing a law as IN governor that many say sanctions discrimination against LGBTQ customers.

Kumari started arguing with the lady constable and in the video clip that went viral, she was seen slapping her first. She holds the office of All India Congress Committee secretary and, additionally, is AICC in-charge of Punjab.

Pence has a long history of opposition to LGBTQ equality, including promoting conversion therapy, opposing funding to fight HIV/AIDS, opposing marriage equality, and promoting religious exemptions to anti-discrimination laws.

As Indiana governor, a position he held before he was tapped as President Donald Trump's running mate, Pence signed into law a controversial legislation that advocates said would allow businesses to discriminate against members of the LGBT community.

He has also been accused of being a proponent of "conversion therapy", a practice which purports to change individuals' sexual orientation via spiritual intervention.

Pence's spokesman, Mark Lotter, told The New York Times a year ago that the vice president does not support conversion therapy, and that his campaign statement was misinterpreted.

Pence arrived in Aspen on Tuesday according to the report.
