Vice President Pence Invited To Give Commencement Speech, Students Reaction Is Exactly What You’d Expect

Vice President Mike Pence is an outspoken Christian, a man who not only talks the talk, but walks the walk, actually seeking to obey the Word of God actively in his own life. This is a rarity among politicians, most of whom will say whatever it takes to win an election, pretending to be of the faith, but in reality, they live like hellions.

This is why it’s somewhat dumbfounding that a Christian evangelical university’s students would be so ticked off about Pence doing their commencement speech. You’d think he’d be a welcome speaker, but apparently that’s not the case at Taylor University.

Over 3,300 people have signed a petition to get Pence’s invitation to the mid-May commencement ceremony rescinded, claiming the “Trump-Pence Administration’s policies” are “not consistent with the Christian ethic of love we hold dear.”

One Taylor grad said the school, “should be ashamed…I am physically shaking…I feel personally attacked,” but not all alumni agree and Taylor officials said they are standing by their decision.

Kevin Holtsberry, a Taylor alumni, told “Fox & Friends” Monday morning the outraged alumni and students are mistaking disagreement on political issues with personal attacks, while also thanking the school for “standing firm” and not pulling Pence’s invitation.

Paul Lowell Haines, the president of Taylor, praised the vice president as a “good friend to the University over many years,” and “a Christian brother whose life and values have exemplified what we strive to instill in our graduates.”

All of this is over Pence’s views of homosexuality, but what these “Christians” fail to understand is that he gets his views from a plain reading of Scripture in its proper context. The Bible makes it clear in no uncertain terms that homosexuality is a sin. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts.

How a Christian can be pro-LGBTQ while the Bible clearly, in both Old and New Testaments calls homosexuality an “abomination” truly blows the mind. This is a perfect example of the radicalizing going on in public schools that is infecting young people, even those who claim to be Christians.

Christian parents who send their kids to public schools to be “missionaries” need to see this story. Your children are going through massive indoctrination for 12 whole years. No matter how much time you think you’re investing in them to counterbalance the junk they are taught, you cannot get around it.

The answer is to junk the public school system. But we as a society are so addicted to it, one has to wonder if such a thing can be done.
