Actually Caleb, this doesn’t sound inane at all. I too believe that Pence and his moral compass require much needed fine-tuning. Religiosity, and not science, nor sound reasoning, frame his insensitive beliefs about the world around him. While we can expect Trump to behave the way that he does, Pence remains far more unpredictable and hardened in his beliefs.
That sort of belief system is steeped in ignorance and is cultivated and maintained by motivations that are either unintelligible or predetermined by an interpretive bias underlying his religous zealotry.
