    Vice President Mike Pence is getting pushback from Taylor University students and alumni 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    Over 3,300 people have signed a change.org petition to get Pence’s invitation to the mid-May commencement ceremony rescinded, claiming the “Trump-Pence Administration’s policies” are “not consistent with the Christian ethic of love we hold dear.”

    and as usual, that which they "hold dear" doesn't actually match the Bible.
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.

    I don't get why Evangelical students would have a problem with Pence as their graduation speaker. Why would you go to an Evangelical school if you had issues with that? It's probably 2x as expensive as a public school, on top of probably having restrictive rules and other things that I wouldn't have wanted to deal with when I was that age.

    From what I've read elsewhere, the Pences have been supporters of Taylor for years, and have accepted the invitation. If these people howling really are alumni and alumnae, they seem to have been out of touch with Taylor's doings for quite some time.

    This is just an extension of Orange Man Bad. Pretty pathetic, really.
