She continued: “I am a Christian woman, and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome. So you can take all that disgrace, Mr. Pence, and look yourself in the mirror and you’ll find it right there.”
Pence's wife, Karen, accepted a job teaching art at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia. At this school, it is required that employees agree that marriage is between two different genders, and parents need to sign a document agreeing that entry can be denied when engaging in homosexual behavior.
“My wife and I have been in the public eye for quite a while. We’re used to the criticism,” Pence told Eternal Word Television Network. “But I have to tell you, to see major news organizations attacking Christian education, is deeply offensive to us. We have a rich tradition in America of Christian education and, frankly, religious education broadly defined. We celebrate it.
The freedom of religion is enshrined in the Constitution of the United States.The Constitution prohibits a religious test for holding a public office, and so we’ll let the other critics roll off our back, but this criticism of Christian education in America should stop,” Pence said last Thursday.
