  Vice President Pence to graduates: Be prepared to be ridiculed for being Christian

WASHINGTON –The last time Vice President Mike Pence spoke at Liberty University, he used the backdrop of one of the world’s largest Christian schools to vouch for candidate Donald Trump’s faith credentials during the 2016 campaign.

When Pence returned to the school Saturday to deliver the commencement address, his remarks were more personal.

Pence, who has been facing criticisms of his own religious views recently, warned graduates that they have to stay strong against the challenges they’ll get from Hollywood, the media and the secular left.

“Some of the loudest voices for tolerance today have little tolerance for traditional Christian beliefs,” Pence said. “Be ready.”

Although, regardless of religion, being white (European heritage) is not something to be happy about, let alone proud.

Yeah, but considering Christians in other countries are routinely jailed and killed for their faith, we should probably not try to ride the victim horse too much.

He's right. There will be ridicule. But I have to be honest. Most, if not all, of the ridicule I've received in my adult life for being a Christian has been indirect: people on TV, the internet, or fictional characters.

More consequences related to real life ridicule.

Pence doesn't need anyone to ridicule him as he does a fine job himself.  Smiley

Exactly, real people in real life really don’t see your religion as an issue.  At least not here in America.  Pence is instilling fear and doubt into young minds.

No blacks will buy that cap.  Look at the bill! It's all curved like normal people wear. The bill of the hat is supposed to be flat with a shiny goofy looking sticker in the middle of it.

No self respecting thug would be without his sticker!

Their attacks are not at us, they are meant for Jesus Christ.  I never see someone mocking my faith as a personal attack.  Their issue, which Fiddler clearly demonstrates, is with God himself.  Sure, they want to think they are attacking us but their words are directed towards their maker.  I have no desire to follow the world's teaching as it is foolishness to God.
  

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."
