Karen Pence to teach at school that bans LGBTQ employees, students

Second Lady Karen Pence.

1/16/19
Karen Pence, the vice president's wife, announced Tuesday that she would return to teaching art at a northern Virginia elementary school that explicitly bars its employees from engaging in or condoning “homosexual or lesbian sexual activity” and “transgender identity.” The employment application for the Immanuel Christian School asks applicants to initial a passage stating that they will "live a personal life of moral purity," according to HuffPost, which first reported on Pence's return to the school. “I understand that the term ‘marriage’ has only one meaning; the uniting of one man and one woman,” the passage states. “Moral misconduct which violates the bona-fide occupational qualifications for employees includes, but is not limited to, such behaviors as the following: heterosexual activity outside of marriage (e.g., premarital sex, cohabitation, extramarital sex), homosexual or lesbian sexual activity, polygamy, transgender identity, any other violation of the unique roles of male and female, sexual harassment, use or viewing of pornographic material or websites, and sexual abuse or improprieties toward minors as defined by Scripture and federal or state law."

Pence’s office did not answer questions about her beliefs regarding employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity and whether she believes homosexual activity and transgender identity constitute "moral misconduct.” Eliza Byard, executive director of LGBTQ youth advocacy group GLSEN, called Pence’s decision to return to a school with restrictive policies regarding sexual orientation and gender identity — especially while in a highly public role — “deeply disturbing.” “The prohibitions at this school,” Byard said, “take the position that not only are you not allowed to be yourself, but you’re not allowed to express support for LGBTQ people.”

Yup. That's mighty Christian of the Second Lady.

Sure is. Guess what , PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO OPPOSE HOMOSEXUALITY, on a RELIGIOUS BASIS.

Choke on it...the Obama LGBT Gaystapo Attack Squad reign is OVER.


And yet you support Rep."Impeach the mother****er" Tlaib, I'll bet.


Why doesn't the Fake News/Lying Left ask her what her religious views on homosexuality are?

She just appeared with a guy who openly supports people (Hezbollah) who promote EXECUTING THEM....


HYPOCRITE MUCH?

Has Rep Tlaib ever worked at such a school? If she has, then you have a point. But I don’t think she did.

Prove that the second lady's choice is not Christian... I'd say your reaction is over the top. Since when do you get to decide how someone should practice their personal faith?

Though I personally would not choose to send my child or teach at this school, I cannot condemn anyone for walking the walk, and following their faith.
After all, it her personal choice, and it's also the choice for a private Biblical type school to set their own guidelines for applicants and their staff.

"In Immanuel Christian School's "parent agreement," it states that the school can refuse admission to an applicant "if the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home, the activities of a parent or guardian, or the activities of the student are counter to, or are in opposition to, the biblical lifestyle the school teaches."

This is extremely courageous move for the Second lady. Taking a teaching position at place that stands up for their believes, even though she'll face discrimination from hoards of hateful heterophobic bigots.

I never knew Karen Pence was such a strong and brave lady. She should run for president.

Well if that mother****er took a job at a school with such a policy I would not.

I really don't see this as an issue Ms Pence is free to work and place she wants. This job falls in line with the values the Pence family hold or at least portray as having.

It has to be a slow news day for this to matter.

Oh yeah. Those "love thy neighbor" Christians. Odd that Lady Pence publicly excludes LGBT children but is utterly silent on Trumps multiple adulteries and multiple divorces.

Must be the church of "Custom Christianity". Little wonder I left the religion cult.

Odd that you completely missed Grokmaster's point about hypocrisy but after reading the above I can see why.
