Vice President Mike Pence has students outraged at Taylor University. Students and alumni alike are angry after the small evangelical Christian school tapped the former Indiana governor to be this year’s commencement speaker.
Over 3,300 people have signed a petition to get Pence’s invitation to the May commencement ceremony rescinded, citing the “Trump-Pence Administration’s policies are not consistent with the Christian ethic of love we hold dear.”
One Taylor grad said the school, “should be ashamed…I am physically shaking…I feel personally attacked,” but not all alumni agree and Taylor officials said they are standing by their decision.
Upset alumni and students are voicing their anger as South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a Democratic presidential hopeful, criticized Pence. Buttigieg, who is openly gay, discussed his sexual orientation during an event hosted by the LGBTQ Victory Fund, saying: “If me being gay was a choice, it was made far, far above my pay grade … That’s the thing that I wish the Mike Pence’s of the world would understand – that if you got a problem with who I am – your problem is not with me, your quarrel sir, is with my creator.”Source foxnews.com
Protests are already expected to take place upon Pence’s arrival. With Donald Trump’s new bill on campus free speech, I recommend the school administration put their students in check! Would be a shame for them to lose funding..
Such a shame our great VP would be greeted with anything but applause.
Some liberal outrage:
