Second Lady Karen Pence Begins Teaching at School with LGBTQ Ban

HeadlineJan 16, 2019

Second lady of the United States Karen Pence is working at a Virginia private school that explicitly bans LGBTQ workers and students. Pence started work this week at the Immanuel Christian School in the Washington, D.C., suburbs, where an employment application requires job candidates to pledge not to engage in homosexual activity or to violate the “unique roles of male and female.” The application also advises women that “a wife is commanded to submit to her husband as the church submits to Christ.”
