‘Doing this to love thy neighbor’: Republican Senator Ben Sasse slams liberals criticizing Karen Pence for working at anti-LGBT school

Published

on

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, Republican of Nebraska, has a reputation of being a moderate who can reach across the aisle. But his voting record, that of a far right conservative, may be better at explaining his decision on Wednesday night to attack liberals over news Karen Pence is teaching at a virulently anti-LGBT Christian school.

The Second Lady is being strongly criticized for taking a job teaching art at the Immanuel Christian School in Virginia. The school has a strong policy banning not only LGBT teachers and even students, but students who have LGBT parents, and even students whose family members support LGBT people and equality.

Senator Sasse has no problem with the policy, and is defending the Second Lady’s choice of schools as an act of Christian love.

“She doesn’t need a job, she’s doing this to love thy neighbor, through art,” Sasse told Fox News Insider. He is calling the criticism from liberals a “fundamentally un-American way to think.”

The Senator from Nebraska also attacked Democrats for speaking out against this extraordinary act of discrimination, saying, “I can’t understand why these people don’t have more to do. Karen Pence is a lovely woman  and she’s trying to help and serve kids.”

“Everybody should be saying to Mrs. Pence, ‘Hey, thanks for trying to go and serve people. The fact that she chooses to do it at a Christian school is every bit her right.

Earlier in the interview Sen. Sasse told Fox News’ Martha McCallum that “people and our rights come from God.”

The Immanuel Christian School’s Statement of Faith specifically cites the Leviticus chapter and verse that calls for gay people to be put to death.

The Second Lady’s spokesperson, Kara Brooks, said, “It’s absurd that her decision to teach art to children at a Christian school, and the school’s religious beliefs, are under attack.”
