Karen Pence’s Teaching Gig Becomes Major Challenge for School District

At some point in the not-so-distant future, we will be forced to accept diversity as a strength, and division as a weakness.

Karen Pence

A great hullabaloo has been made over the new part-time job being held by the wife of the Vice President, Mike Pence.

Karen Pence, a lifelong Christian, has taken a job outside of the White House this year, returning to the educational field in order to teach art at The Immanuel Christian School in the DC suburbs.  The choice was controversial for two reasons:  The first reason is simply the “resistance”.  You see, Pence and her husband are both part of the Trump administration, meaning that the liberal left was always going to disagree with the move – no matter what.

The second reason that this controversy has stuck around so long is that the Immanuel Christian School is a religious organization, not a public school, and as such has some hardline restrictions on the sort of families they wish to serve.

Our nation’s founding documents say that “all are created equal”, but some have taken to using selective portions of the Bible to condemn others by their sexual identity.  As a private school, Karen Pence’s employer has the option of which decree to stand by, and have chosen the divine diatribe over the democratic one.

This has led to schools within the area declining to participate in extracurricular activities with students from the Immanuel School.

A progressive school in the nation’s capital said its students will not be playing sports at the school where Second Lady Karen Pence teaches part-time because of safety concerns.

Jessica Donovan, headmaster of Sheridan School, a K-8 institution located in northwest D.C. that has a tuition of more than $36,000 a year, sent a letter to parents saying Immanuel Christian School’s policies were an “obvious challenge” given the school’s “fundamental belief in diversity and inclusion.”

The initial plan was to make the kids go to the school during away games wearing rainbow socks or warm-up jerseys as a show of LGBTQ support. But instead, Donovan banned the students from playing sports at the Virginia elementary school because some expressed “they feel unsafe” in such an environment.

“As we talked more, we understood that some students did not feel safe entering a school that bans LGBTQ parents, students or even families that support LGBTQ rights,” she wrote.

Of course, there is an obvious moral quandary to discuss here:  If the Immanuel school, as a private organization, can discriminate against the LGBT community, why couldn’t Google be allowed to discriminate against right wing news or Christians themselves?  After all, they too are a private entity.  Is their freedom of speech as powerful as the Immanuel School’s freedom of religion?  I should certainly hope so.

If we keep fighting over these immovable realities, we will only continue to divide our nation.

We are approaching the un-fracturing of the American populace at a rapid pace.  At some point in the not-so-distant future, we will be forced to accept diversity as a strength, and division as a weakness.  Even though the mainstream media tells us all to foment hate for one another, we are better than that.

We must come together to embrace our differences in order to remain undivided and vigilant against a media and a government that looks to split us down the middle.

Matt.7. [1] Judge not, that ye be not judged. [2] For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. [3] And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

LA County Now Lifting Ban On Indoor Worship Services ‘To Align With Recent SCOTUS Rulings’

Published

Los Angeles County has decided to finally follow the Constitution and honor the First Amendment right of freedom of religion — a right handed down by God Himself — and lift a ban on indoor church worship services over the weekend after recent Supreme Court rulings in favor of houses of worship. Gee, how nice of them to allow folks to do what God commands them to do and hold services inside a building like normal people. This should never have been something that needed a Supreme Court ruling. The Constitution is pretty clear that the right to freely expression religion is protected. via Daily Wire: “The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with recent Supreme Court rulings for places of worship,” the county said in a press release Saturday. “Places of worship are permitted to offer faith-based services both indoors and outdoors with mandatory physical distancing and face coverings over both the nose and mouth that must be worn at all times while on site. Places of worship must also assure that attendance does not exceed the number of people who can be accommodated while maintaining a physical distance of six feet between separate households.” “Public Health strongly recommends that places of worship continue to hold services outdoors, with physical distancing and the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community,” the release continued. “Because Los Angeles County is experiencing an unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, every effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community is critical. This is an absolute win for religious liberty, one of the most important and fundamental rights our republic was established upon. In fact, it was our forefathers seeking after religious…

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…
