Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen, has accepted a part-time teaching position at a private Virginia school that requires employees to agree to certain religious beliefs.
Immanuel Christian School, a private K-8 school outside of Washington, requires those applying for teaching and support staff positions to sign or initial a set of standards, including living a “personal life of moral purity” and believing that marriage can only be between a man and a woman.
“Moral misconduct which violates the bona fide occupational qualifications for employees includes, but is not limited to, such behaviors as the following: heterosexual activity outside of marriage (e.g., premarital sex, cohabitation, extramarital sex), homosexual or lesbian sexual activity, polygamy, transgender identity, any other violation of the unique roles of male and female, sexual harassment, use or viewing of pornographic material or websites, and sexual abuse or improprieties toward minors as defined by Scripture and federal or state law,” the document says.
While some people were unphased by the school’s requirements, others criticized the vice president’s wife.
Author and comedian Tony Posanski wrote on Twitter, “I pay for Karen Pence’s housing. I pay for Karen Pence’s security. I pay for Karen Pence’s health insurance. All Americans do. So she needs to explain why it’s okay to teach in a place that discriminates against the LGBT community, who are Americans that pay taxes.”
