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

Courtesy of Yahoo News:

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.

    Trump goes off on Fox News for interviewing Pete Buttigieg and it’s Trump who takes it up the ass.

    Who’s the Indiana person that used to post here back when he was tapped for veep? Paraphrasing, “thank God, he was running for re-election Governor. He’s all yours.”

    I’m not going to listen to this asshole and his Jesus talk, just as I didn’t and still roll my eyeballs at Palin and the likes of them.

    You align yourself with Trump, you don’t need to say more about your faux “Christianity.” I was raised Lutheran, GFY.

      It wasn’t me, although plenty of my Hoosier (no, it’s not ‘Indianan’) friends were glad to be rid of him.

    He still reminds me of that creepy albino dude in “Foul Play” 1978 Chevy Chase/Goldie Hawn.

    When there is a separate savior, there is no evolution. And therein lies the ignorance.

    OT?
    “Guats are best made crispy with an olive oil from their native pais.” Bowen refers to the migrants he apprehends as “disgusting subhuman shit unworthy of being kindling for a fire” and pleaded to the president, “PLEASE let us take the gloves off trump!”

    “I actually think the President is right to challenge China,” he replied. “The tariffs are absolutely painful and dislocating. But if in the end we end up with an agreement that gives us a meaningful reform of China’s most egregious behavior, we might look back and say this is worth the price WE are paying.”

    Pence said. “Lately, it’s become acceptable, even fashionable, to malign traditional Christian beliefs.” Pence has done more to turn people away from his brand of phony kristian values. And drumpfuck the dumbfuck is magnitudes phonier.
