Liberals Proved Pence Right About Anti-Christian Discrimination
“Some of the loudest voices for tolerance today have little tolerance for traditional Christian beliefs,” Pence noted. “So as you go about your daily life, just be ready, because you are going to be asked not just to tolerate things that violate your faith, you’re going to be asked to censor them, to bow down to the idols of popular culture.” The vice president wasn’t talking in stereotypes. He knows from personal experience the sort of hostility that Christians face from the political left...

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Liberals started proving Vice President Mike Pence correct almost as soon as they heard his warning to Liberty University graduates that they should be prepared to be “shunned or ridiculed” for their Christian faith. Pence was the commencement speaker at Liberty’s 46th commencement on Saturday, and he offered timely advice to the graduating class because people of faith are increasingly attacked for their beliefs in the secular media. 

“Some of the loudest voices for tolerance today have little tolerance for traditional Christian beliefs,” Pence noted. “So as you go about your daily life, just be ready, because you are going to be asked not just to tolerate things that violate your faith, you’re going to be asked to censor them, to bow down to the idols of popular culture.” 

The vice president wasn’t talking in stereotypes. He knows from personal experience the sort of hostility that Christians face from the political left today, having endured numerous attacks targeting his own faith. 

Earlier this year, for instance, liberals howled with outrage after Pence’s wife, Karen, accepted a teaching position at a private school that requires students, parents, and employees to pledge that they accept the school’s traditional Christian beliefs. 

Liberals had never much cared about the school previously, but since Karen is the vice president’s wife, they branded her decision to return to the school, where she had previously taught for 12 years, as “deplorable.” 

More recently, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, presumably seeking to set himself apart from a crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates, has implied that Pence has a “quarrel” with God merely because Pence adheres to the Biblical understanding of marriage as a union between a man and a woman. 

Pence has never attacked the openly gay Buttigieg over his sexual orientation or same-sex marriage — or any of the candidate’s other personal qualities, for that matter. In fact, when Buttigieg came out publicly in 2015, Pence even expressed words of praise for his fellow Hoosier politician. Yet, Buttigieg still tried to make him into a straw man for evangelicals in a transparently political maneuver now that he’s running for president as a Democrat. 

This type of anti-Christian vitriol has also become commonplace on our nation’s college campuses. Christian groups are often banned or harassed, and courses and workshops are held to combat things like “Christian privilege” and teach students how to “queer the Bible.” Then, of course, there’s The New York Times’ despicable attempt to#exposeChristianschools, which stated the objective of this online movement is to share “how traumatizing those bastions of bigotry are” by attacking Christian schools in America. 

Naturally, when Pence told Liberty University’s graduating class that they should be prepared to face that sort of intolerance from the left for holding traditional Christian beliefs, the forces of “tolerance” set their sights on the vice president once again. 

Splinter News, for instance, reported that Pence had “whine[d] about how oppressed Christians are,” completely ignoring the left’s attacks on Pence’s Christian faith while claiming that he was actually advocating “bigotry dressed up as Christianity.” 

The Independent, meanwhile, doubled down on the very sort of anti-Christian animus that Pence was referring to during his commencement speech, declaring that the VP reaffirmed the “anti-abortion stance” of the Trump administration as a way for the publication to paint pro-life views as a form of intolerance. 

Esquire even ran a story titled “Mike Pence Brought the Full Snowflake Persecution Complex to This Commencement Speech,” mocking "cherub-faced Liberty U. grads.” 

The anger Pence’s speech has inspired among progressives only goes to show that he hit the proverbial nail right on the head. Unaccustomed to being called out for practicing bigotry in the guise of tolerance, the only response liberals could muster was to denigrate the vice president yet again. 

Almost as soon as Mike Pence warned Liberty’s graduates that Christians are being increasingly shunned and ridiculed by the left, the left proceeded to prove his point for him. 

What was supposed to be a final day of reflection and inspiration for Liberty grads has predictably been turned into another vitriolic attack by the liberal media. 

Nonetheless, students of faith should not be discouraged, but rather, they must hold fast to Vice President Pence’s warnings and be always prepared to rise above baseless and hypocritical attacks from the left.


Jerry Falwell Jr. is the president of Liberty University.

Of course not. 

Allow me to put forth a prime example for anyone interested. A most recent example.

Do you remember how Mayor Pete launched his campaign?

"Back in 2015, South Bend, Ind.’s mayor, Pete Buttigieg, came out of the closet as a gay man. Asked about the news, Indiana governor, Mike Pence, simply responded, “I hold Mayor Buttigieg in the highest personal regard. I see him as a dedicated public servant and a patriot.”

A year earlier, Buttigieg had been deployed to Afghanistan as a member of the U.S. Naval Reserve. According to the Indianapolis Star, “a noticeably moved Pence called Buttigieg the day he was driving to the base.”

There is no evidence that Pence has ever said an unkind word about or done an unkind thing to Buttigieg.
So, naturally, Buttigieg is attacking Pence as a homophobic bigot nearly every day on the campaign trail. Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Buttigieg sneered, “He’s nice. If he were here, you would think he’s a nice guy to your face. But he’s also fanatical.” Speaking at the LGBTQ Victory Fund National Champagne Brunch in Washington, Buttigieg tore into Pence’s supposed intolerance: “That’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences 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.” This week, Buttigieg tweeted, clearly in reference to Pence, “People will often be polite to you in person, while advancing policies that harm you and your family. You will be polite to them in turn, but you need not stand for such harms. Instead, you push back, honestly and emphatically. "

To this day Pence has never said an unkind word about or done an unkind thing to Buttigieg!  Yet Buttigieg has used his homosexuality and Mike Pence (smearing him) to get publicity and launch his campaign!

.

To this day Pence has often spat on Americans like Buttigieg and now he says; Contempt for Buttigieg and other Americans like him, who ME?

Pence is just another Westboro christian in a velvet glove and despite that Buttigieg has not spoken poorly of Pence personally only mentioning that his, Bittigieg's, understanding of Christianity differs from Pence's, (more like Jesus's teachings and less like Westboro hate?).

A Timeline of Mike Pence’s Discrimination Against the LGBT Community

2000: During his congressional campaign, Mike Pence said, “Congress should oppose any effort to put gay and lesbian relationships on an equal legal status with heterosexual marriage.”

2000: Pence also supported the reauthorization of the Ryan White Care Act only if federal dollars were excluded from organizations who “celebrate” and “encourage” behavior that facilitates spreading of the HIV virus. Further, Pence supported this reauthorization only if “those institutions provided assistance to those looking to change their sexual behavior”, an off-the-cuff endorsement for ex-gay conversion therapy.

2004: Mike Pence co-sponsored a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would define marriage as solely between one man and one woman.

2007: Pence voted against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).

2010: Mike Pence voted against the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal which allowed LGBT Americans to openly serve their country in military service.

2012: Pence refused to say on the record if he supported a same-sex couple raising a child together.

2014: Gov. Pence supported HJR-3, a bill to add an amendment banning same-sex marriage to Indiana’s Constitution.

2015: Governor Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in a closed-door ceremony surrounded by special interest lobbyists.

2015: Governor Pence said on ABC’s “This Week” that it was “absolutely not” a mistake to sign RFRA, throwing Indiana into a $250 million economic panic and putting Indiana’s “Hoosier Hospitality” reputation in jeopardy.

2015: Even after his approval rating plummets from RFRA, Mike Pence on July 22 told the media he is “studying” the issue of LGBT rights and whether or not he’d support across the board protections for the LGBT community.

nce has ever said an unkind word about or done an unkind thing to Buttigieg.

Since the Democrats are a party built on victimology, Buttegig needed to create  fake attacks by Pence to give him credibility with the oppression worshipers who will pick the next DEmocrat nominee.  

If he told the truth, that Pence has always treated him with respect, he'd be run out of the party.

That's an understatement. Buttigieg has basically entered the race as a homosexual. He has spoken on all issues since then, (that's for independents), the bottom line for democrats continues to be "what you are"
