The "Make America Gay Again" banner was placed there by the daughters of the couple who live in the house as well as one of the daughters' girlfriend, the daughter's girlfriend told The Aspen Times.

Just how anti-LGBT is Mike Pence?

The banner was hung either Wednesday or Thursday from a stone pillar outside Aspen, according to The Aspen Times.

The neighbor's action is not the first time LGBT supporters have protested Pence, who describes himself as "a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order".

Prior to becoming vice president, then-Indiana Governor Pence signed a religious freedom bill into law in 2015, only to issue a clarification after the state was threatened with widespread boycotts over concerns the law discriminated against the LBGT community.

Lee Corso: Lamar Jackson should return, would be Heisman favorite
He is the first true freshman quarterback to start a bowl game for the Bulldogs since Wesley Carroll in the 2007 Liberty Bowl. He ran 24 times for 158 yards and a touchdown, breaking the TaxSlayer Bowl record for most rushing yards by a quarterback.

Pence has regularly been criticized for signing a law as IN governor that many say sanctions discrimination against LGBTQ customers.

The paragraph said federal dollars should go to 'institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior'. Pence said on the House floor that he feared the bill "could have a chilling effect on the religious expression and religious freedom of millions of Americans".

A Wall Street Journal story published Friday claimed Pence's Great America Committee is already handing out campaign cash to GOP candidates who support President Donald Trump. Pence's press secretary, Alyssa Farah, said in a statement to The Post that the lengthy piece with the headline, "The Danger of President Pence", is "unsubstantiated" and filled with "untrue and offensive" claims.

Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo said he is in favor of free speech and that Aspen has a long history of irreverence when it came to powerful people visiting the area.

Aspen is a community that strongly supported Hillary Clinton in her 2016 presidential bid. Barack Obama also led the state in 2008 and 2012.
