In what appears to be a politically-motivated pr stunt that may have cost taxpayers up to $250,000, Vice President Mike Pence went to the Indianapolis Colts-San Francisco 49ers game in his home state of Indiana yesterday, but walked out 20 minutes later when around 20 members of the 49ers took a knee during the national anthem.

Considering that Pence is supposedly this super-Christian, another person whom I’m betting lives more by genuine Christian principles than the hypocritical Pence has a message for the VP.
