Gov. Mike Pence's deleted gay marriage Facebook posts reveal thorny challenges
Sometimes, what’s civil is in the eye of the beholder — especially on Facebook.
That much became clear Thursday, as Gov. Mike Pence navigated the blowback from his staff’s deletion of hundreds of comments on his official Facebook page that the governor’s office deemed uncivil.
The commenters were responding to the posting Wednesday of Pence’s statement expressing his renewed support for putting a proposed state constitutional ban on gay marriage before Indiana voters in 2014. Some said they believe their comments were deleted simply because they opposed the governor’s position, not because they were disrespectful.
