It’s not just Senator Kamala Harris, the Democrats have swung into an open war on religion under the guise of social justice.
Take today’s attack on Karen Pence for working as an art teacher at a Christian school. Or as the hysterical HuffPo headline has it, “Karen Pence Is Working At A School That Bans LGBTQ Employees And Kids “.
The Washington Post, the Daily Beast and other social justice clickbait tabloids joined in the hate. Their problem is that the school is religious.
And has the expected moral code of a religious educational institution.
In Immanuel Christian School’s “parent agreement,” it states that the school can refuse admission to an applicant “if the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home, the activities of a parent or guardian, or the activities of the student are counter to, or are in opposition to, the biblical lifestyle the school teaches.”
The agreement also lists disqualifying qualifications, including “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.”
In sum, what the United States and the West considered basic morality for quite a few centuries.
Karen’s school isn’t telling people outside it what to do. It is creating a “safe space” for religious people to live out their values. This isn’t Moral Majority stuff. Instead it’s the Left that is going to war against people who have religious values.
This is the same phenomenon as the attack on Orthodox Jewish schools and Catholic schools in New York that I wrote about earlier.
The Left used its control of culture war to win the culture war. But it isn’t stopping or slowing down.
And it’s working to outlaw religion as a way of life.
