Skip to comments.DC school won't play sports at Christian school where Karen Pence teaches: 'They feel unsafe'

A progressive school in the nation's capital said its students will not be playing sports at the school where Second Lady Karen Pence teaches part-time because of safety concerns.
Jessica Donovan, headmaster of Sheridan School, a K-8 institution located in northwest D.C. that has a tuition of more than $36,000 a year, sent a letter to parents saying Immanuel Christian School's policies were an "obvious challenge" given the school's "fundamental belief in diversity and inclusion."
The initial plan was to make the kids go to the school during away games wearing rainbow socks or warm-up jerseys as a show of LGBTQ support. But instead, Donovan banned the students from playing sports at the Virginia elementary school because some expressed "they feel unsafe" in such an environment.
"As we talked more, we understood that some students did not feel safe entering a school that bans LGBTQ parents, students or even families that support LGBTQ rights," she wrote.
Sheridan is the latest group to target the school after Pence took a part-time job teaching art to students. The NOH8 Campaign, the Human Rights Campaign, The Trevor Project, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, and several others attacked her and the school, which says it holds to traditional Christian values when it comes to marriage and other beliefs.

then they forfeit the game...
a “w” is a “w”..
So forfeit the game.
wow, what a bunch of total idiots. I’m glad that there are still schools that are lead by people that have morals, values and will stick with them. You watch though, they will quietly get her to quit.
This is a war. The progressives have taken it up, and they mean to beat us in every way they can.
If I had any affiliation with Mrs. Pence’s school, I would sue them until I owned them.
We laughed it off when they took over public schools. Look where that has us now.
If the progressives had the power, they would kill people like me.
PISS ON THE PREJUDICED!
Blood-boiling garbage. Kids are kids. They are not LGBTQWERTYMOUSE, nor should they be exposed to that while they are still kids.
The Department of Education needs to pull their accreditation.
“As we talked more, we understood that some students did not feel safe entering a school that bans LGBTQ parents, students or even families that support LGBTQ rights,” she wrote.
Is there a sign on the door that says NO FAGS ALLOWED?
I didn’t think so.
I am beyond sick to death of liberals
We are going to be beaten by these people because we are not sufficiently standing up to them and calling them out. The school which will not play there should be called bigots and they should be suspended from their normal athletic schedule.
They feel unsafe? what someone may hurt their feelings?
Fine. The hell with them.
You see if you dare believe in The Bible and don’t think that 2 men should be married and be having anal sex with each other while raising kids then you are a bigot and everyone should be afraid of you.
My, how tolerant and inclusive they are...
I’m waiting for when we will have to see the absolute destruction of the Amish and mennonites and of course the muslims. Obviously only sodomite worshipers need apply.
I would be scared of all those intolerant gangbanging christian thugs that support Karen Pence also. . . . .
The “unsafe” attitude is academically engendered as part of political themes in the curriculu. In actuallity it is Christian students who are realistically unsafe at some progressive schools, which have no “diversity” agenda that is inclusive of the views of the Christian students and parents.
“..If the progressives had the power, they would kill people like me....”
That’s why you have a trigger finger.
