That’s right, this is at a Christian university.

Dozens of graduates and faculty at Taylor University walked out of graduation exercises Saturday morning minutes before the introduction of Vice President Mike Pence, who delivered the Christian liberal arts school’s commencement address.
In caps and gowns, the students and faculty rose and quietly walked down the aisle and out of the auditorium in the Kesler Student Activities Center at Taylor.
The protest, planned and discussed prior to Saturday’s ceremony, comes after faculty and students at the nondenominational Christian liberal arts school debated the appropriateness of the vice president at the commencement ceremony.
Most of Taylor’s graduating class remained seated for the vice president, who received a standing ovation after the planned walkout.
Pence used the commencement address to urge a religious resolve among the Christian school’s graduates and faculty.
“Throughout most of our American history it’s been pretty easy to call yourself a Christian, but things are different now,” Pence said. “Lately, it’s become acceptable, even fashionable, to malign traditional Christian beliefs.”
Once again Pence defines Christianity by who it oppresses and teaches its adherents to hate, and clearly, these young students do not accept that definition.
Good for them, religion needs more people who actually reflect the teachings of Jesus Christ.
