“These attacks on Christian education are un-American”
Pence knows what he’s talking about on this topic. He is right to issue this warning as well.
The Hill reports:
Mike Pence tells Liberty University graduates to prepare to be ‘shunned,’ ‘ridiculed’ for being a Christian
Vice President Pence warned the 2019 graduating class at Liberty University in his commencement address that they would face persecution for their faith.
“Throughout most of American history, it’s been pretty easy to call yourself Christian,” Pence told students Saturday, according to USA Today. “It didn’t even occur to people that you might be shunned or ridiculed for defending the teachings of the Bible.”
“But things are different now,” he continued, adding that “some of the loudest voices for tolerance today have little tolerance for traditional Christian beliefs. Be ready.”
Drawing from his own personal experience during the address, Pence discussed the criticism his wife, Karen, received last year after she returned to work as an art teacher at a private elementary school that prohibited LGBT students and teachers.
“When my wife, Karen, returned to teach art at an elementary Christian school earlier this year, we faced harsh attacks by the media and the secular left,” he also said during the address, according to The Christian Post.
“These attacks on Christian education are un-American,” Pence continued.
