Karen Pence, the spouse of Vice President Mike Pence, began at work this week showing workmanship at Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia. It is anything but a school where everybody is welcome. In a “parent assertion” posted on the web, the school says it will deny admission to understudies who take part in or support gay action. The 2018 business application additionally makes hopefuls sign a vow not to take part in gay action or abuse the “one of a kind jobs of male and female.”

“Moral unfortunate behavior which abuses the true blue word related capabilities for representatives incorporates, yet isn’t restricted to, such practices as the accompanying: hetero movement outside of marriage (e.g., pre-marriage sex, living together, extramarital sex), gay or lesbian sexual action, polygamy, transgender character, some other infringement of the remarkable jobs of male and female, lewd behavior, use or review of obscene material or sites,” says the application.
