Vice President Pence responded to critics questioning his wife’s new job teaching at a school that prohibits LGBT students and faculty by saying attacks on Christian education are “deeply offensive.”
Pence spoke with EWTN host Lauren Ashburn in an interview airing Thursday for the Catholic news program about the backlash following Karen Pence announcing she’s taking a job at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Va.
The article goes on to state the following:
“My wife and I have been in the public eye for quite a while but I have to tell you, to see major news organizations attacking Christian education is deeply offensive,” Pence said.
“We have a rich tradition in America of Christian education and, frankly, religious education broadly defined. We celebrate it,” Pence said. “The freedom of religion is enshrined in the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution prohibits a religious test for holding public office so we’ll let the critics roll off our back. But this criticism of Christian education in America should stop.”
