Mike Pence Is Why We Have To Stop Excusing Religious Sexism | The Huffington Post

The Internet is on fire after an in-depth Washington Post profile of Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen Pence. The article revealed that Pence explained, in 2002, that unless he is with his wife, he won’t eat alone with a woman or attend an event where alcohol is served, a spin on what evangelicals call the “Billy Graham Rule.” Twitter threads and think pieces have abounded. “Mike Pence’s ‘Billy Graham Rule’ has Internet yelling sexism,” blared a USAToday headline that could have read, but didn’t, “Mike Pence’s ‘Billy Graham Rule’ is sexist.”


Unless they're Muslim, presumably. But Orthodox Jews don't really get a pass though, because you know those Jews. These people won't be satisfied until you're simply not allowed to be religious except secretly. Oh, and the Amish. They're so quaint and I just love their furnishings. It's so authentic.
