If you thought that 2018 was bad, 2019 is shaping up to be so much worse.
Karen Pence is the wife of Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady of the United States and former First Lady of Indiana. She is also a school teacher. She earned a BS and MS in elementary school education with a minor in art, from Butler University in Indianapolis.
Butler is a beautiful liberal arts school. I’ve been there to watch the ballet school perform The Nutcracker.
Pence will teach elementary art two days a week at Immanuel Christian School in northern Virginia, her office announced. She’ll be known as “Mrs. Pence” to her students, not as the second lady of the United States, per her office.
“I am excited to be back in the classroom and doing what I love to do, which is to teach art to elementary students,” Pence said in a statement.
“I have missed teaching art, and it’s great to return to the school where I taught art for 12 years,” she added
If Pence was not a Republican and a Christian, the Left and the media would probably be ecstatic about the Second Lady of the United States showing that woman can have a career and that it’s something down to earth, and yadda yadda yadda.
However, being a Republican and a Christian, this is how The Washington Post chose to break the news.
The school that hired Karen Pence requires applicants to disavow gay marriage, trans identity https://t.co/WIxxYKa0qN

Really. Immanuel Christian School, is just that, a Christian school. It, like many religious schools, has a morality clause that requires students, faculty, and family to adhere to the doctrine of the religion associated with the school.
If you attend a Orthodox Jewish school or a Madrassa, you don’t send your kid to school with a ham sandwich in his lunchbox.
It must come as a surprise to the Left that mainstream Christianity still considers homosexuality a sin, as well as teaches men are men and women are women, made that way in God’s image.
Forgetting the religious side of things, the idea of letting pre-pubescent children (this is an elementary school by the way) identify as trans and start to transition, is awful for so many other reasons that I’ve covered before.
Since the Left can’t let Christians be Christians – though you’d never seem them lose their minds at a Madrassa saying students and teachers can be gay – Karen Pence and the people at Immanuel Christian School must be tortured.
Karen Pence’s Anti-LGBTQ School To Receive 100 Copies Of LGBTQ Children’s Book
A year ago, Karen Pence did the art for a kids book about what the Vice President does, from the view point of the Pence family pet rabbit. The book is called Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President. The profits of the book sales were donated to Tracy’s Kids, an art therapy program at the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
I know, Karen Pence is an art teacher who helped write an anodyne children’s book about the job of the VP, and donated the profits to an art program for sick kids. She really is an inhuman monster.
Unable to leave that kind of thing alone, John Oliver decided to write a parody book. It is about the Pence family pet rabbit, falling in love with another boy bunny. A stink bug that looks like the VP tries to stop them, and then the other animals vote him out.
This is how the Huffington Post tells that story.
A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo debuted last year as comedian John Oliver’s response to Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President, a book written by Pence’s daughter, Charlotte, and illustrated by Karen Pence that depicts the family’s pet rabbit, Marlon Bundo.
Mike Pence is notoriously hostile to LGBTQ rights, once opining that marriage equality could lead to “societal collapse.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, the queer version of the bunny book has sold much better. Proceeds benefit The Trevor Project, which works specifically to prevent suicide by LGBTQ youth, and AIDS United, which is dedicated to stopping AIDS in the U.S.
But sending a pro-gay book that is critical of the husband of the new art teacher to a Christian school isn’t where this story ends.

See, because our taxes pay for her Secret Service detail, and she teaches part time, privately, at a Christian school that abides by rather mainstream Christian morality, she must be stripped of her security detail, inviting any radical nut-job to attack her.
This is the extent that they are willing to go now.
“Believe what we want you to believe or we will open the door to have our thugs attack you.”
That is a very small step from “Believe what we want you to believe or we will shoot you.”
They are getting worse.
