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?

Save conservative media!

SCOTUS Sides With Religious Schools And Hospitals In Employment Discrimination Case

Published

on

The Supreme Court, in its second religious freedom decision, decided to side with religious employers, which includes schools, hospitals, and social services organizations, stating they are exempt from certain aspects of the employment discrimination law when that law conflicts with closely held religious beliefs. If you listen closely, you can hear the screams of the angry LGBTQ+ mob ripping through America as it dawns on them they have no right to force their beliefs upon those who disagree with their lifestyle choices. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: The 7-2 decision had the same breakdown as the Supreme Court’s contraception mandate decision; Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s conservatives, as did Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer, and Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. The case before the court involved two Catholic schools, St. James Catholic School and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic School, that dismissed employees who later sued. Religious institutions typically have a so-called “ministerial exemption” allowing them more leeway in hiring and firing and certain protection from employment discrimination suits, but the case before the Supreme Court ultimately tested whether there was a specific limit to that “ministerial exemption,” particularly where the fired employees were not technically members of the church’s ministry. Employers have the right to decide who they want to hire and not hire, to terminate employment or not. It’s their business. They should be able to do what they want. Especially when it comes to actual religious institutions. This is a hard pill to swallow for the left who seems to think that employers themselves, by starting a business, have no rights, or give those up the moment they create a company. If a business owner doesn’t want someone to work at their business, they have the right to say…

Instead Of Abolishing Police, How About Abolishing Abortion And Planned Parenthood? OPINION

Published

on

Over the last several weeks, we’ve all witnessed our nation being further destroyed and torn apart by individuals who claim to be fighting against racism and police brutality. We’ve watched as these same folks burn businesses to the ground in the name of peace, a message stuffed to the gills with oxymoronic irony that appears to be lost on folks who are trying to justify this behavior on the grounds of the cause we now know as “black lives matter.” That’s a phrase we’ve heard a lot lately. And you know what? It’s true. Black lives really do matter. Black lives are image bearers of God, which means they have intrinsic value and worth. Black lives are no different than lives of any other color or ethnicity. Adam and Eve are our first parents. Our blood is the same shade of red. Our ancestry is the exact same when you trace it back to the beginning. We all suffer from the same fallen nature, the same sinful disposition, that has earned us a place under the wrath of God, with our only hope being Jesus Christ and the work He accomplished through His life, death, and resurrection. Since black lives really do matter, instead of abolishing police departments, we should all be united in a fight against the ultimate destroyer of the black community: Abortion. Yes, instead of tossing out police departments, we ought to be giving Planned Parenthood the boot. More black lives have been taken at abortion clinics than have ever been killed by evil, twisted police officers. And that’s not to make light of police brutality. It’s a real thing. It exists. Perhaps we as conservatives have been so gung-ho in the past about blindly supporting police that we’ve ignored that reality. Well, it’s hard to ignore…
