The left-wing smear machine switched into high gear this month when anti-faith radicals found out that second lady Karen Pence had decided to return to teaching.
You see, Mrs. Pence had the nerve to return teaching at a …
… Christian school.
You see, this school actually still believes the Bible when it says that marriage is between one man and one woman.
Headlines abounded with vicious smears and Hollywood liberals tweeted attacks.
But the Vice President wasn’t having any of it.
Christian Headline reports:
“Vice President Mike Pence’s wife was the target of criticism this week after she announced that she would be teaching art at a private conservative Christian school”
But “the Vice President is stepping up to defend her.”
Immanuel Christian School, where Karen will be teaching art, is a well-known school with a strong moral compass in Springfield, Virginia.
They encourage abstinence until marriage and they do not promote “transgender identity”, according to Christian Headline.
It makes sense, the Bible is pretty clear:
“‘Haven’t you read the Scriptures?’ Jesus replied. ‘They record that from the beginning ‘God made them male and female.’’” (Matthew 19:4).
But in the “tolerant” world of the “LGBT” community, there is no tolerance for those who believe Christ’s own words.
The anti-Christian hate quickly filled Twitter and other social media:
“A WIFE IS TO SUBMIT TO HER HUSBAND AS THE CHURCH SUBMITS TO CHRIST”?? THIS IS WHAT YALL TRYNA PUSH IN SCHOOLS?? FUCKING DISGUSTING. FUCK MIKE AND KAREN PENCE. pic.twitter.com/IZOfpCyFVF

And of course Karen Pence has a right to work at such a terrible place, but we have a right to call her out for being a part of the American Taliban while her husband is our Vice President.

I pay for Karen Pence’s housing
I pay for Karen Pence’s security
I pay for Karen Pence’s health insurance
All Americans do
So she needs to explain why it’s okay to teach in a place that discriminates against the LGBT community, who are Americans that pay taxes.

But the Vice President’s response to the nastiness from the left-wing media was spot on:
Fox News reports:
“If we cherish the freedom of religion in this country, this administration stands foursquare for the freedom of religion for people of all faiths, and to see the mainstream media criticize my wife cause she’s choosing to return to the classroom of an elementary Christian school is wrong.”
Part of what makes this nation great is our freedom of religion.
There is a constitutional right to be able to serve your God without being forced, oppressed, or coerced by the government to follow a particular religion.
“My wife and I have been in the public eye for quite a while but I have to tell you, to see major news organizations attacking Christian education is deeply offensive,” Pence said.
“We have a rich tradition in America of Christian education and, frankly, religious education broadly defined. We celebrate it. The freedom of religion is enshrined in the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution prohibits a religious test for holding public office, so we’ll let the critics roll off our back.”
Sadly, the Pence family is not a stranger to attacks from the media.
John Oliver published a children’s book depicted the Pence’s daughter’s pet bunny as a homosexual. A group that works to promote the LGBT agenda has said they are going to send 100 copies of the book to Immanuel Christian School in a distasteful attempt to show their disdain for Karen’s new position.
“The Bible says count it all joy when you endure trials of many kinds. Any time I’m criticized for my belief in Jesus Christ, I just breath a prayer of praise.”
This is, unfortunately, not the last time Pence will be persecuted for his faith by the very people he spends his days trying to look out for, but it’s nice to see he is taking the whole ordeal in stride.
As for Karen’s new job as an art teacher for a school that stands by Biblical values – Congratulations!
Please pray for the Pence family, and pray for our Christian schools which are under attack like never before.
