How Dare Karen Pence Be Christian!

How utterly brazen. How shameless. How bigoted. How inexcusable and unjustifiable. The wife of the vice president of the United States is a committed Christian who—perish the thought—teaches at a Christian school. What has become of our nation?

Worse still, this Christian school actually holds to Christian principles.

Is there a more serious crime she could have committed?

Of course the nation is outraged. This is a frontal assault on one of today's most sacred political cows. Religious faith (specifically, Bible-based, Christian faith) can have no connection with the public square. We must have freedom from religion—that is, from religion that has any real connection to the Bible.

Had Karen Pence been a liberal (or, "progressive") Christian, there would be no problem.

So-called progressive Christianity has exchanged the values of the world for the values of the Word. That's why the world—meaning, secular society, worldly society—loves progressive Christianity.

As Jesus said to His disciples, "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world, since I chose you out of the world, the world therefore you" (John 15:18-19).

But because Mrs. Pence helps out at a school with biblical Christian standards, there has been a near-hysterical breakdown in the media.

The FRC's Tony Perkins cited these headlines in a Jan. 17 email:
  • "Karen Pence teaching art at school that bans gay students, parents" (CNN).

  • "Vice-president's wife, Karen Pence to teach at anti-LGBT school" (BBC News).

  • "Karen Pence Is Teaching at Christian School That Bars L.G.B.T. Students and Teachers" (New York Times).
