Democrat State legislator Brian Sims of Pennsylvania is not happy about Vice President Mike Pence visiting his district, and he posted a hateful message on social media. Sims is the state’s first openly gay state representative.
Here is the full “official welcome” from Sims, a self-described “Little Mermaid enthusiast,” which he posted a shorter version of on his official Twitter account (below):
OFFICIAL WELCOME: Vice President Mike Pence let me be the first person to officially welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love, and to my District in the State House!
To be clear, we’re a City of soaring diversity. We believe in the power of all people to live and to contribute: Black, Brown, Queer, Trans, Atheist, Immigrant, we want you and we’ll respect you.
So keep that in mind while you’re here raising money to attack more families, spread more lies, blaspheme with your bible, and maybe even talk to a woman without your wife in the room. We have plenty of them, and they’re pretty much all more powerful and more real than you have ever been.
So…get bent, then get out!

Reactions were mixed, and conservatives on Twitter immediately responded to his nasty words to the Vice President:

He's so brave and edgy! He also looks like the cokehead douchebag in Die Hard and has a really ugly tie.
Never forget, liberals hate you. They don't want to debate or even defeat you, they want to destroy you. https://t.co/frRvET4QPg

THAT's going to convert a lot of people to your position. https://t.co/Noub6N3ib3

Wow…I'd be embarrassed to call you my State Rep

Thank you for creating more conservative voters.

He is not flipping off Trump.🤔
He is flipping off YOU.
When I tell you they hate you, you protest.
You don't want it to be true, so you convince yourself that what you see is an illusion.
But it isn't.
They really hate you.
And they will hurt you if they can.
Be prepared. https://t.co/aeN06CePn7

And Sims made sure to attack Twitter responses with shameful lies about the recent debate over immigration policies:
I can’t even begin to tell you how many amazing Christian friends and constituents I have. They follow the teachings of their faith and they show love and respect to those around them. Wait, are you equating putting kids in concentration camps with Christianity? Gross.

If this is a desperate cry for attention, it certainly worked. His Twitter post has been Re-Tweeted more than 4200 times and “liked” more than 19,000 at the time of this publication. (RELATED: Democrat Candidate Disrespects God And Trump Voters In Campaign Ad).
Is this what a leader of the Democratic party should be saying about Christians and the Bible? Approaching a critical midterm election, Sims harsh rhetoric and anti-Christian bigotry isn’t exactly the best way to win over Pennslyvania voters.
