  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.


I'm not Christian, but most of you are, so you really cannot understand what it's like to live among you.

I consider the majority of you pretty cool. We have good conversations, and I do not feel like you think your religion is superior to mine. That your values are better than mine. That you are right, and I am wrong.

But then there are the rest of you, the ones who insist that you are right, and that the ONLY way to G-d is through your particular path. You disgust me. Sorry, but it's true. You judge me, when your own religion tells you that only G-d can do that. You are hypocrites, saying you follow your religion, when you do the exact opposite of what it endorses.

It is this smaller, second group that the media attacks and makes fun of.

Some examples that I think illustrate the point:

and

If you'd just keep your religion to yourself, no one would bother you, but you insist on being dicks about it. I have no sympathy for you at all.

No, it is not that we disgust you, it is that you are disgusted with what Jesus says.

  John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Deuteronomy 5:6“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 7 You shall have no other gods before Me.

No one is being a "dick", you just happen to be hyper-sensitive.  I suspect there are also a lot of non-Christians who just ignore what is said.  You should try it, I ignore quite a few people and remarks.  Beside, we are exercising our First Amendment rights of "free expression".
  

"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."

Jesus isn't saying it, you are.

Why don't you let "Jesus" speak for himself?   Until then keep your Jesus dick out of our government.

No, that is a scriptural quote.  I know the games you play, this guy has heard it all and more.  Trust me, you are an newbie to some of the folks I have bantered with in the Navy.  It was a game to try and get under people's skin for entertainment while on watch...

Human justice and laws and its enforcement has been given to man by God for the reason of protecting society and punishing criminals and criminal nations and so Christians can use it and participate for these reasons (Romans 13:1) and should do so in order for God's will to be done towards the guilty

Thank goodness for biblical contradictions and their ability to be selected the way the person feels about the subject.

I'm pretty peaceful, so I'll go with this one.

27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them.
30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.

Shows what little belief you do actually have when you have to speak for god instead of god speaking for himself.

He's angry because I told him his band sucks!   Grin  Most of the liberals are petty and childish.  My 6 year old acts more mature then some of our regulars on this forum.  Incapable of putting together a thoughtful remark or rebuttal but boy they have the school ground antics down pat.

You really have no idea what is going on in that scripture.  That is not unusual and your hatred is on diplay, but that is not between you and I.  Your argument is with your Creator.

He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father (John 14:12).

Ok Seawolf, your time to shine.... I read on.....

You do something greater than turning water to wine under scientifically controlled conditions and I'll absolutely start believing your side.
