UNREAL! Christian School Says Students Left ‘Shaking’ After Pence Gets Invited
Vice President Mike Pence is getting pushback from Taylor University students and alumni after the small evangelical Christian school tapped the former Indiana governor to be this year’s commencement speaker.
Over 3,300 people have signed a change.org petition to get Pence’s invitation to the mid-May commencement ceremony rescinded, claiming the “Trump-Pence Administration’s policies” are “not consistent with the Christian ethic of love we hold dear.”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.
According to Fox News, Upset alumni and students are voicing their anger as South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a Democratic presidential hopeful, criticized Pence. Buttigieg, who is openly gay, discussed his sexual orientation during an event hosted by the LGBTQ Victory Fund, saying: “If me being gay was a choice, it was made far, far above my pay grade … That’s the thing that I wish the Mike Pence’s of the world would understand – that if you got a problem with who I am – your problem is not with me, your quarrel sir, is with my creator.”
The vice president hit back saying Buttigieg “knows better.”
The Daily Wire:
Pence’s devout Christian faith appears to be unwelcomed by some in the broader Taylor University community. As The Hill reports, Taylor University spokesman James Garringer said in a statement: “Since making the announcement of Vice President Mike Pence’s upcoming commencement speech, we have received feedback from people on either side of the issue. Taylor University is an intentional Christian community that strives to encourage positive, respectful and meaningful dialogue.” Additionally, according to Fox News, Taylor University president Paul Lowell Haines has reaffirmed Pence as “a Christian brother whose life and values have exemplified what we strive to instill in our graduates.”
Thankfully, Taylor University presently shows no indication of rescinding its invitation to Pence.
