    Former Vice President Mike Pence told a crowd of pastors that "God isn’t done with America yet."

    According to the Washington Examiner,his comments came during a "fireside chat" with about 400 pastors at the First Baptist Church of Columbia in South Carolina on Thursday.

    Pence said that the U.S. is "a nation of believers," as he encouraged people to lean on God.

    "I believe this is the time when we ought to renew our faith in Him who placed this miracle of democracy on these wilderness shores," he said. "Because I say from my heart, God isn't done with America yet."...
    As for his own future in politics, he said: "Over the coming months, I’ll have more to say."

    This Newsmax article reporting upon what Mike Pence said at a gathering in North Carolina is timely. It will be interesting to see what Pence decides to do in the future. He did a good job defending the great Trump administration accomplishments.

    I loved what Pence said about us being a nation of believers and about his personal story.

    And yet the chant of the Trumpist GOP a couple months ago was “Kill Mike Pence”....Stop The Steal”...Pence has about as much chance of becoming POTUS as you do..lol

    I think Pence will probably give it a shot in 2024, with DeSantis as his likely running mate. Pence the staid conservative, and Desantis the up-and-comer, bringing the Trump agenda with him, but without the bull-in-a-china closet personality.

    What amends does he have to make for the leftist pigs who tried to burn down St. John's Episcopal Church, and force the WH occupants into the bunker? And of what offense is the bible to you?

    No reason to defend that fine and badly needed gesture by our last decent President.

    That extremist mob was not reflective of actual Trump base supporters. He may we never become President. He’s been a congressman, a governor, and Vice President. If he wants elected office again the Senate is the place. If Trump doesn’t run I’m into Governor Noem, Governor DeSantis, and Senator Scott. Since DeSantis. Since the constitution prevents De Santis from being on a ticket with Trump, I’d like either of the others as Trumps next running mate.

    By 2024, the only position Trump will be running for is cellblock shot caller in Attica or Sing Sing. De Santis barely beat Gilliam, a weak candidate in Florida a couple years back. He won by less than a percentage point. He would be a miserable failure on any national ticket.

    He's right. People actually believe the MSM. It's crazy.

    Gilliam was not a weak candidate then. He hadn’t been exposed yet then. De Santis has done a great job as governor.

    All this after Pence's Covid task force telling you not to travel at Christmas, meanwhile he and his family took a ski vacation in Vail Colorado accompanied by well over 40 Secret Service who ran up bills close to $1 Million dollars just for Secret Service they also had 70 rental cars. God knows what the total cost for the one week trip was to taxpayers.

    Pence has shown he doesn't have the spine to be President. Behind the cloak of religion is another light-weight DC swamper. No thanks.

    He’s been a reliable social conservative for decades. I agree with him on what he said even if I’m going to vote for De Santis, Noem, or Scott for President if Trump doesn’t run.

    What I know for certain is that the constitution prevents Harris from being on the VP ticket with Biden, yet the imposter sits in the VP chair anyhow. I don't have a clear read yet on DeSantis though, because the background info on him is pretty sketchy from what I've seen so far. What is your take as to why he couldn't be on the ticket with Trump?

    I thought Pence was “persona non grata” after failing to steal the election for Trump

    I wouldn’t say he has to make any amends for the “leftists pigs” unless he had something to do with their crimes. Did he?

    If he made excuses, rallied or pushed them to do so then you may have a point.

    trump said he wasn’t forced into the bunker he was just inspecting it — so I don’t know what you are referring to?

    What offense is the Bible? None, it is just words — written by man, edited by kings and then edited again by the church. The “offense” is people claiming religious superiority while supporting individuals that use the seven deadly sins as a guide to live by.

    When did social conservatives start supporting adulterous narcissistic nepotistic lying prostitution solicitors? Or does social conservative only mean anti-gay / pro- forced state incubator nowadays?

    Using the Bible as a prop by someone who rarely sat foot in a church. Fascinating

    So evangelicals will follow someone who is the antithesis of what the bulk of Gods word as long as they let the state control women’s reproductive process and push their ability to discriminate against others.

    Wow, no wonder Christianity is on such a decline
    What a filthy ideology

    What's wrong with it? There is a lot more to Christianity than "I'm OK, you're OK".

    You listed exactly two reasons you would support an individual that is the antithesis to what is the core parts of the Bible.

    Those two reasons were
    1) “oppose elective abortion” — which means you wish for the state to be able to force a woman to act as an incubator against her will

    2) “support Christians” — which means the ability of evangelicals to be precluded from civil law (oftentimes imposing religious law unto others [against the constitution btw]) and be able to discriminate against who they wish

    Did I miss anything?
