The left has always despised Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen for being Christians. When the news slows down, they usually savage them the best they can in real time. So, when Karen Pence took a job this week at a Christian private school named Immanuel Christian School, they predictably came unglued. Karen Pence will be teaching art. There are outrageous stories and headlines all over the media today concerning this and it has riveted Twitter as well.
Being an authentic Christian school and private, they ban gay teachers and they don’t admit gay students. If you go to a Madrassa, an Islamic school, here in the US, you will see similar policies, but they never are attacked for it. No… the left saves that for Christians who they despise. The Christian school also prohibits all other forms of sexually immoral conduct, including premarital sex. Teachers are required to officially affirm the Biblical position on all of these subjects. If I enrolled my child in a Christian private school I would expect nothing less.
Regardless of the reasons given here, the real reason for the attack is the Christian faith of the Pence family. The left and the media abhor Christian morality and embrace anything and everything that is perverse. A Christian school teaches Christian precepts or by definition it is not Christian. See how this works?
From The Daily Wire:
“It is important to pay attention to the backlash Pence is receiving here. The Left is revealing something and we ought to take the revelation seriously. For many years they claimed that they are not interested in suppressing or outlawing Christianity. Rather, they want to live according to their own beliefs without Christians shoving the Bible down their throats or forcing them to accept biblical principles. “Just keep your religion to yourself and you’ll be fine,” they assured us.
“Well, I have always had a problem with the idea that religion is something we must keep to ourselves. Indeed, the Christian faith requires exactly the opposite. But in the case of Karen Pence and her new employer, they are doing exactly what the Left demanded. This school is merely trying to operate by biblical principles within its own walls and on its own property. It is a Christian school simply being a Christian school. It isn’t bothering anyone. It isn’t invading anyone’s home and lecturing them about their sexual behavior. It isn’t preventing anyone from working or living or enjoying their lives. It is just saying, very reasonably, very unobtrusively, “We are going to conduct ourselves according to Christian moral tradition. If you don’t want to accept that moral tradition, then, by all means, go somewhere else.”
“This is exactly, precisely, the approach that the Left for years endorsed and insisted upon. But suddenly it’s a problem. Suddenly, even Christianity behind closed doors, on private property, in a private school, is a target of outrage and scorn. It was a lie all along. They were never planning to stop outside the walls of our homes and our churches and our schools. That’s just what they said to lull us to sleep.
“Now the next phase begins.”
Instead of portraying Karen Pence as a woman of deep abiding faith, the left is painting her as a bigot. It’s disgraceful and evil. And yes, it’s unconstitutional as well.
Christian teachings believe that homosexuality is a sin. The left has pushed forever that it isn’t and it may not be popular to say it anymore, but that is what the Bible teaches. This is a private school that is owned and operated by Christians. They have every right to say who can and can’t attend just as a Madrassa or Jewish school can.
The left is foaming at the mouth over all of this. LGBT groups are ripping the Pence’s over this as well. “Why not teach at a school that welcomes everyone, instead of choosing one that won’t serve LGBTQ kids, kids of LGBTQ parents?” JoDee Winterhof, senior vice president for policy and political affairs at the Human Rights Campaign, told the Huffington Post in a statement. “The Pences never seem to miss an opportunity to show their public service only extends to some.”
Karen Pence’s spokeswoman told the Huffington Post that the second lady previously taught at Immanuel Christian for 12 years while her husband was in Congress. The couple’s daughter, Charlotte, attended the school, the Huffington Post added, noting the school’s website. This is all being blown out of proportion to hurt the Pences. Shame on the left for this.
