Mike Pence Joins Heritage Foundation

By Charlotte Robinson, February 05, 2021

The Heritage Foundation has announced that former Vice President Mike Pence will join the organization as a distinguished visiting fellow. What a perfect place for Pence to hone his radical religious right perspective. Kay C. James Heritage President stated, “Over the course of the past four years, our team at Heritage has worked closely with members of the Trump administration on a host of policy accomplishments. That’s why I am excited Vice President Mike Pence will join forces with Heritage to ensure we continue to advance conservative principles & policy solutions. His allegiance to the Constitution & commitment to advancing a conservative policy agenda make him an outstanding fit for The Heritage Foundation.” Not only does The Heritage Foundation rejects the scientific consensus on climate change, Heritage has also fought against laws like The Matthew Shepard & James Byrd Hate Crimes Act & the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). They criticized the Obama Administration for just about anything it did to advance LGBTQ acceptance. They’ve also spent considerable time over the past six years making the case that religious employers & business owners should have a right to use so-called "religious exemptions" as a way to discriminate against LGBTQ workers & customers. The Heritage Foundation brands itself as a beacon of the intellectual conservative establishment. In reality it serves as a pipeline of hate, dedicating significant energy to extremist policy recommendations to deny access to abortion & birth control & to harm our LGBTQ community. So we congratulate former VP Mike Pence for finding his home at last.
