'MAKE AMERICA GAY AGAIN' - Rainbow flag hung near Mike Pence's vacation home

Aspen resident hangs gay pride sign across from home where VP Mike Pence is staying

The banner, first reported by The Aspen Times, was put up on Wednesday or Thursday by a neighbor who presumably takes issue with Pence's deeply conservative stance on marriage equality and LBGTQ rights.

He and his wife, Karen Sue, are apparently staying in Aspen over the weekend and heading back to the Eagle County Airport on Monday.

The neighbors posted the words, which were written on a rainbow flag, on a stone pillar that sits at the end of the driveways to both homes, Pitkin County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Buglione told The Aspen Times.

The Secret Service agents were not at all disturbed about the banner, Buglione said.

"We're not here to control your free speech rights", one of the agents said.

Authorities say 2 dead including gunman at California office
Multiple victims were reportedly transported to a hospital, but their conditions or the number of people remains unconfirmed. People were seen evacuating and running from the unmarked building that houses law offices.

Vice President Mike Pence arrived in Aspen, Colorado, this week for a holiday vacation - but not without encountering a silent protest from his neighbors in the liberal ski resort town.

"They've been really nice to us", he added.

The couple living in the home didn't reply to requests for comment by The Times.

LGBT advocates have previously showed their opposition to Pence.

Pence once said societal collapse "was always brought about following an advent of the deterioration of marriage and family", according to Time magazine.

Justin Bieber is not the reason behind Selena Gomez's family issues
The two walked on the red carpet during the premiere of " 13 Reasons Why " in March. "Justin and Selena are still together". This was a huge problem between the two ladies, but fortunately, they finally managed to sort things out and reconcile.

Pence has notoriously supported legislation that critics say discriminates against gay people.

The Mike Pence gay hate is so strong it almost destroyed his state's economy.

As governor of IN, IN 2015, Pence signed a bill called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that "essentially legalized discrimination against homosexuals by businesses IN the state", the New Yorker reported. Apple, the NCAA and other major business and political leaders denounced the bill.

Over and over again, Pence has voted to prohibit same-sex marriage and permit anti-LGBT discrimination.

He has also been accused of being a proponent of "conversion therapy", a practice which purports to change individuals' sexual orientation via spiritual intervention.

As a result, users will no longer be able to create new accounts or re-verify existing accounts on these devices. They said: "When we started WhatsApp in 2009, people's use of mobile devices looked very different from today".
