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?

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Published

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…

This Husband Didn’t Want To Adopt, Then God Gave Him An Incredible Vision

When God has something in store for your life, you can’t run from it for long.

Adoption is an incredible, God-mirroring feat for Christian families to undertake, but it’s not without its challenges and pitfalls. When God has something in store for your life, however, you can’t run from it for long. Jeffrey and Kristine Moore learned this lesson on their 10-year adoption journey, ultimately leading them to adopt four children, Elizabeth, Jhonatan, Mariaelena, and Talia, from Peru. Jeffrey, however, recalled in an interview with PureFlix Insider that he wanted nothing to do with adoption in the early days of their marriage—even after suffering two miscarriages. “At the time I had said, ‘I don’t think I could adopt, I don’t think I could love a child that wasn’t my own biologically,’” Jeffrey said. Soon after, God lovingly set Jeffrey straight with an incredible vision that he reveals in the video below: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1910950709034153 “The story of adoption began because God called us to it. I had a vision, and it was really, really powerful,” he said. “I was floating in the ocean at night. It was very calm and peaceful, and I was being carried by something in the water, like a current pushing me toward something.” Jeffrey remembered the water in his vision becoming shallow and leading him to a beach on a tropical island. It’s there that he saw something breathtaking. “There were all of these jewels or gemstones that were lying around in the sand, and every one of them was glowing with this internal fire,” he continued. “All these points of light…and I just felt compelled to reach out and pick one up.” His vision ends there, but Jeffrey says he believes God was giving him a very clear message about international adoption: “‘He said, ‘My son, are you willing to be carried by my spirit to a land far away to pick…
