Governor Mike Pence is apologizing after comments criticizing his position on same sex marriage were deleted from his Facebook page.
In the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling striking down a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act, Governor Mike Pence expressed his disappointment in the decision and pledged to help the General Assembly pass a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage.
Pence’s statement attracted criticism on his official Facebook page, and several people noticed their critical comments had been deleted.
Pence initially said the comments contained personal attacks and were therefore removed. But the governor released a statement Friday saying some of the posts were deleted simply because they expressed disagreement with his position.
Pence apologized and says he will have his staff review its social media policy.
