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.

Namely, they don’t admit students who themselves or their families happen to display homosexual behavior.

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?

LGBTQ Activists Blitz Drew Brees Over Support Of ‘Bring Your Bible To School’ Program. His Response Is Perfect.

Classy response.

Published

on

LGBTQ activists, or more affectionately, the “alphabet people,” are once again up in a tizzy over a Christian doing what Christians do, supporting things Christians should support. This time the target of their rainbow tinted rage is New Orleans Saints superstar quarterback Drew Brees. Brees is a big supporter of a program that encourages kids to bring their Bibles to school. Brees has openly been a Christian for a long time, so his support of such a program is not at all a shock, but the perpetually offended folks in the homosexual community are nonetheless attacking him over it. Well, Brees has responded and it’s awesome. Here’s a video of Brees talking about his support of the program in question: https://youtu.be/qPFEyeug99g via TheBlaze: Deadspin ran the headline “Drew Brees appears in video for gay conversion therapy sickos, doesn’t understand what the big deal is,” for the story. Others on Twitter accused Brees of being a “bigot” and aligned with a “hateful group.” Brees responded to the online furor through a video on his Instagram trying to clear the air and saying that he was falsely smeared by a deceptive article on the story. https://twitter.com/Amie_Just/status/1169705243216666626 “What I did was I filmed a video recently that was encouraging kids to bring their Bibles to school for national Bring your Bible to School Day,” said Brees. “So I’m not sure why the negativity spread, or why people tried to rope me into certain negativity,” he added. “I do not support any groups that discriminate, or that have their own agendas that are trying to promote inequality. OK? So hopefully that has set the record straight, and we can all move on, because that is not what I stand for.” Unfortunately, you can almost guarantee that such a statement is not at all going…

Pete Buttigieg Adds New Sin To God’s List; It’s A Real Eye Roller

This guy clearly never read the last few verses in the Bible.

Okay, so you know how the Bible, in the book of Revelation warns folks about adding to or taking away from the Bible, the Holy Written Word of God? Apparently, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has never read that portion of Scripture. During a town hall about climate change hosted on CNN, Buttigieg mentioned that skeptics of the science on this issue were committing a grave sin. Yes, that’s right, folks. Apparently the Eleventh Commandment is “Thou Shalt Not Deny Climate Change.” Guess we missed that one on our first read through. via TheBlaze: “Let’s talk in language that is understood across the heartland about faith,” said Buttigieg, an openly gay presidential candidate. “You know, if you believe that God is watching as poison is being belched into the air of creation, and people are being harmed by it ⁠— countries are at risk of vanishing in low-lying areas ⁠— what do you suppose God thinks of that?” he asked rhetorically. “I bet He thinks it’s messed up,” Buttigieg answered. “And you don’t have to be religious to see the moral dimensions of this, because frankly, every religious and non-religious moral tradition tell us that we have some responsibility of stewardship, some responsibility for taking care of what’s around us,” he continued. https://youtu.be/gq7rwFPC3vU Buttigieg also brought up how not caring about climate change is also an issue of not loving your neighbor. “Not to mention taking care of our neighbor. Eventually it gets to the point where this is less and less about the planet as an abstract thing, and more and more about specific people suffering specific harm because of what we’re doing right now,” Buttigieg said. You know what else God hates, Mr. Buttigieg? People who twist up the meaning of His Word and add their own manmade…
