Mike Pence’s (Somewhat Limited?) ‘Multi-Faith’ Experience!

Most of the media mentioned how America’s VP Mike Pence happily joined in a ‘multi-faith’ gathering in Jakarta, after visiting the huge Istiqlal mosque.

The actual ‘faiths’ included in the ‘multi-faith’ meet-up don’t seem to be identified, at least in the media I’ve looked at.

But I am led to wonder if Mr. Pence had a chance to talk to representatives of one particular faith, the peaceful and inoffensive Ahmadiyah.

They have been subjected to systematic discrimination, not only by dastardly Islamist bigot brutes…


…but also by local governments around the country…

Many of us expected, hoped at least, that when President Jokowi took over, he would annul the intolerant edict.

He hasn’t.

Did Mr. Pence’s Ambassador bring him up to speed with the persecution of these good citizens that began some years ago, reached a nadir at Cikeusik, when that mob of savages martyred three Ahmadis – nobody ever charged with murder – and continues today.

If Donald Trump’s V-P was properly informed on this shameful saga, one hopes he raised the issue at the ‘multi-faith’ meeting.

If Mike Pence was unaware, it’s time to fire a few embassy flunkeys.
