The left feels threatened by Christian education.

After a backlash surrounding his wife’s hiring at a Christian school that excludes LGBT students and employees, Mike Pence went on Christian TV on Thursday night to decry the criticism, saying “this criticism of Christian education in America should stop.”
“To see major news organizations attacking Christian education is deeply offensive to us,” Pence said in the interview with Lauren Ashburn of EWTN, a cable TV network presenting Catholic-themed programming.
Pence’s interview followed coverage of second lady Karen Pence’s decision to go back to work as a teacher at Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia, which bans gay employees, students and the children of gay parents.
She had previously taught at the elementary school for 12 years, while Pence was an Indiana congressman.
“We have a rich tradition in America of Christian education and, frankly, religious education broadly defined,” Pence, who was raised a Catholic before becoming an evangelical, said in the interview on EWTN, which stands for Eternal Word Television Network. “We celebrate it. The freedom of religion is enshrined in the Constitution of the United States.”
“We’ll let the other critics roll off our back, but this criticism of Christian education in America should stop.”
