Harshing your mellow since 9/01

What the hell are they TEACHING these kids nowadays?

Wait, hold on—this is an evangelical Christian school we’re talking about here?

On Thursday, the evangelical Christian school Taylor University announced it had invited Vice President Mike Pence to give its 2019 graduation speech. A tremendous uproar ensued, with students and alumni reporting that the decision made them “sick” and expressed support for “hate” and “harmful bullish*t.” The school told PJ Media it would not yield to pressure and was still proud to have Pence speak at graduation.

“The invitation stands. We are looking forward to hosting Mr. Pence on our campus next month,” James Garringer, director of media relations at Taylor University, told PJ Media on Friday.

Yet the pressure is mounting. As of Friday afternoon, 2,393 people have signed a petition on Change.org protesting the decision to invite Pence.

“Inviting Vice President Pence to Taylor University and giving him a coveted platform for his political views makes our alumni, faculty, staff and current students complicit in the Trump-Pence Administration’s policies, which we believe are not consistent with the Christian ethic of love we hold dear,” Alex Hoekstra, a former staffer for President Barack Obama and a 2007 Taylor University graduate, said in the petition.

Then it looks like your education is woefully incomplete, snowflake.

Others proved more angry and visceral.

“I have never been made to feel so physically ill by an email before. Taylor University, you should be ashamed of yourselves,” Claire Hadley, who graduated from Taylor in 2015, began in a long Facebook post. “I am physically shaking. The fact that the school who claims to love and support me, and each of it’s [sic] students and alum, would invite such a vile individual to speak on the most important day of the year??”

“Physically shaking,” is it? Oh, WAAAAH. Nut up, buttercup; dry your childish tears, still your quivering, pouting lips, and somehow summon the courage to tolerate the expression of a dissenting view once in a while without suffering a complete mental breakdown over it. See, it’s like this:

“Inviting the sitting vice president of the United States, and former Indiana governor and congressman, to speak at commencement is not an attack on students, faculty or alumni with differing political views or opinions about Mike Pence,” Kevin Holtsberry, a 1994 Taylor alumnus and a former policy advisor at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, told PJ Media.

“In a time when free speech and intellectual diversity is under attack, particularly on college campuses, I hope Taylor sticks to its commitment in the face of what I am sure will be unrelenting hostility from a vocal minority,” Holtsberry concluded.

I’m so old I can remember a time when free speech and intellectual diversity were cherished principles on campus—ideals to be scrupulously maintained, even promoted, rather than “hate crimes” from which the fragile sensibilities of silly, ignorant little twits must be shielded.

Which means I am really, REALLY old.

Disagreeing with a person does not entail “hate” or violence against him or her, and Taylor University graduates should understand that. They should also know that the Bible’s position on sexuality is at odds with that of LGBT activism.

Taylor University would have been right to invite Mike Pence, even if the university did not agree with his Christian views on sexuality. Pence is a vice president, a former governor of Indiana, and a former leader in the House of Representatives. Students should be glad to hear him speak at graduation.

Sadly, this incident illustrates yet again the trend of liberals demonizing dissent from their ideas. Conservative speech is not violence, and Mike Pence is not “rooted in hate.”

Kudos to the school for standing firm against these whining, fascist brats. Who knows, maybe the kiddies will learn a little something useful about freedom of speech and the value of broadmindedness from this brutal assault on their delusions, to emerge from their nightmarish trauma as more rational, tolerant people.

Not that I’m betting that way, mind. Usually, it takes until they’re around forty or so for the Lefty conditioning to wear off.

  1. “2,393 people have signed a petition on Change.org protesting the decision to invite Pence.”

    Lessee. Maybe maybe 600 are graduates from circa 2010 – 2017. The rest, I posit, are from the Perpetual Outrage Machine that’s so popular with those who have little perception of how to function in the physical world.
    I read the entire comment thread on fb. I confess, it gave me a headache. This, coming from an evangelical Christian school, serves as an illustration that the mal-education is a lot further along than any of us would like.

  2. You know, it’s funny. I used to be very tolerant of gays – honestly I didn’t care if someone was gay. I had a couple of gay friends, one male, one female. They weren’t ‘some of my best friends,’ but they were important to me. And then, during the run up to the 2016 election, each one of them came to me separately and told me that I could no longer “stay on the sidelines,” in their words. Trump and Pence were anti-gay devils and were of course Literally Hitler. So, I either needed to completely endorse the LBGTQwhatthefuckever agenda, and renounce Trump and the Republicans, and join the SJW Democrats – or our friendships were over. Keep in mind, these were people that I went back with over 20 years, that I’d helped out before, and stuck up for. But, if I didn’t endorse their faggotry, the friendships were over. Well…I told them to take a flying fuck at a rolling donut.

    And, since then, I’ve become 100% anti-gay, lesbian, tranny, whatever. Seriously, FUCK these people. They are just completely awful people. Not BECAUSE they’re gay, but because they have so little conception of how to deal with other people in a civil society. I can’t stand their petulance, their whininess, and their infantile worldview. Being gay is simply an indicator of these traits.

    I wonder how many others have been transformed the way I have. There have to be a lot of people with common sense out there that see the same things and have similar experience.

    Mayor Buttplug hasn’t a chance of winning the election or even the nomination – and he knows it. He has two roles in this process. First – to demonize Pence. Second – to ‘normalize’ the gay lifestyle because he’s not dancing in a pride parade with a ribbon on his dick, and because he has a “family.” Once they feel those two things have been accomplished, he’s out.

  3. Progressives are all about one thing – control. Control of the message, media, who is delivering it, and who has the power. They care nothing for the laws or the rights of people. If this does not change the country will collapse into tyranny from the left and into CW2.

  4. Fuck the little twits. Anybody who disagrees with them is a rayciss, sexiss, homophobic, toothless, hate filled tobacco dribbling yokel.
    If you disagree that 2nd grade is a good place to introduce the kiddies to such practices as corn-holing and felching you are just proving your hatred for the poor marginalized people who enjoy such.
    If you disagree that we need an endless tsunami of diseased barefoot illiterates in the name of diversity and inclusiveness you are a reyciss.
    If you disagree that we need to invite them in, put them on welfare, and register them to vote Democrat you are mean spirited AND rayciss.
    If you think voting should require picture ID you’re practicing voter suppression.
    If you think you need guns for physical and socio/political security you are a dangerous White Nationalist in the grip of your own fears.
    Fuck them. White is not just OK, it’s AWESOME! I’m good enough that I don’t have to feel better than anybody else.
    FTW, Rev

  5. I do love snowflakes. They remind me how spiritually empty, how morally vapid, and how degenerative and insipid these weaklings are. Unsure of which bathroom to use, unwilling to commit themselves to anything or anyone, these creatures of the night demonstrate that those who know the least whine the loudest. The ones that protest the loudest are the first to head for the exits when a sacrifice is required.

    In short these are weak creatures worthy of the same respect one affords a used tampax.

  10. this is not a Christian school. maybe they should try reading ALL of God’s Word. maybe like the part that says “no homosexual, adulterer, or fornicator will see Heaven”. maybe the first chapter of Romans. God is love, but He is also Justice and righteous anger. That’s the trouble with “christians” today. they only know Gods’ Words that don’t offend anyone, except Christians.
