Karen Pence, the second lady of the United States, returned to teaching art this week, accepting a part-time position at a private Christian school that does not allow gay students and requires employees to affirm that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.
The website of the school, Immanuel Christian School, which enrolls kindergartners through eighth graders at its campus in Springfield, Va., details its religious beliefs and expectations of both students and their parents, as well as those who wish to work there. The schools employment application requires candidates to describe their faith in Jesus Christ, affirm that they are a born-again Christian and vow to adhere to specific standards in their personal and professional lives.
The eighth item on the applications Articles of Employment, which requires applicants to sign their initials next to a list of beliefs, outlines Immanuel Christians definition of marriage and stances on sexual identity.
I understand that the term marriage has only one meaning; the uniting of one man and one woman, it reads, adding that certain moral misconduct would be disqualifying, such as heterosexual activity outside of marriage (e.g., premarital sex, cohabitation, extramarital sex), homosexual or lesbian sexual activity, polygamy, transgender identity, any other violation of the unique roles of male and female.
It was not clear whether Mrs. Pence, who previously taught art at Immanuel Christian when her husband, Vice President Mike Pence, was a member of the House of Representatives, had to fill out an application for the position. A spokeswoman for Mrs. Pence, whose office announced this week that she had accepted the job in December and had already started to teach at the school twice a week, did not answer a list of questions about her new job and her personal beliefs.

Well, we have to have some schools that refuse to cater and recruit for sexual deviants.
Love the Pence family!
The scumbag left can never stay out of anybody’s business.
When/if Pence runs for president, the Democrats will try to make an issue of this. We should be ready for it.
I somehow think Karen Pence doesn’t care what the NY Times thinks.
Good. Why we anyone want perverts anywhere around their children?
Oh the horror, how dare she. /major sarcasm
Yeah, it’s not the Boy Scouts... er, Scouts!
I agree with you. My first thought was, ‘good for her’.
Will any of the GOP support her? Ask Rep. King.
The failing New York Times reports this as if theyve just found a smoking gun...
Rule One: NO POOFTERS.
Rule Two: No member of the faculty is to maltreat the Abos in any way at all...if there’s anybody watching.
Who cares? Why dont people mind their own business? Everyone is offended by someone, somewhere, somehow. Oh my God! That Gillette commercial was so bad, I just had to stick a knife in my face with outrage!
So. A Christian school upholding and hiring according to Christian/Scriptural teachings- this is news? Why not find out the hiring practices and student handbook policies of a Muslim lead school or hey a Yeshiva? Then get back to us with your shocked sensibilities.
Somehow, I doubt that anybody at this school is maltreating the Abos ... Drinking in their rooms after lights out might be a different issue.
Regardless, I fully support their enforcement of
Rule Seven: NO POOFTES
Her personal beliefs are none of the NYT business. She needs to tell them to urinate vertically along a bundle of twisted fibers.
The proper place for queer students and teachers is a closet
F*** you and the horse you rode in on, NYT-it is a private school operated with private funds, so they can teach whatever they want and refuse any student they want-this is a Christian school, so they only want heterosexual students and teachers-in other words, NORMAL people...
I don’t think there is any rule that says a 2nd Lady-or even La Primera Dama/First Lady-can’t hold a job if she wants to-so why wouldn’t the 2nd Lady accept a job wherever she wants to?
Great advertisement for that school. I’d prefer my children go a school that was minus dykes and fags.
