Karen Pence has become a household name after her husband, Mike Pence, became the Vice President of the United States when Donald Trump won the election in 2016. Now, Karen is making headlines for accepting a new job.
Karen has a long history in education and has worked as a teacher previously. Now, she is starting a new job at a Christian school but some people are attacking her for working at a school that has Christian beliefs.
"Karen Pence, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence, has started a job teaching art at Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia, which refuses to enroll LGBT students and hire LGBT employees," reported Newsweek.
The school's code of conduct is referenced in the description below:
“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 spokeswoman for the Vice President's wife has now spoken out about the incident. She is calling the entire mess an absurd attack on the wife of Mike Pence.
In a statement to media outlets, Karen Pence’s spokeswoman, Kara Brooks, said that Pence had worked for the school for 12 years before her husband became vice president, while he was representing Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District.
“It’s absurd that her decision to teach art to children at a Christian school, and the school’s religious beliefs, are under attack,” Brooks said.
Karen has said she is excited to be back in the classroom with students. We wish her the best on her first day back!
