‘You’re the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian…’
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Singer and actress Lady Gaga took shots at Vice President Mike Pence and his wife during a performance on Saturday.
The performer, who was recently nominated for an Academy Award, said the Pences were poor examples of Christianity because Karen Pence recently began working at a Christian school that enforces biblical teaching, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“And to Mike Pence who thinks that it’s OK that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ, you’re wrong. You’re the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian,” Gaga said, as her fans, dubbed “Little Monsters,” cheered.
“I am a Christian woman,” she continued, “and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome. So you can take all that disgrace, Mr. Pence, and look yourself in the mirror and you’ll find it right there.”
Leftists attacked the Second Lady repeatedly last week for choosing to teach piano at Immanuel Christian School, where she previously taught for more than 12 years.
The Christian school teaches biblical principles, encourages a “personal life of moral purity,” and bars students and employees from engaging in “homosexual or lesbian sexual activity” and “transgender identity.”
In a statement, Mrs. Pence said: “I am excited to be back in the classroom and doing what I love to do, which is to teach art to elementary students. I have missed teaching art, and it’s great to return to the school where I taught art for 12 years.”
At the annual pro-life March for Life rally in Washington, D.C., the vice president praised his wife for her desire to give back to her community and slammed the leftist media for unjustly attacking her.
“Karen and I have been in and around public life for almost two decades, so to be honest with you, we’re used to the criticism, but the attacks on Christian education by the mainstream media have got to stop,” Pence told “Washington Watch with Tony Perkins” last Thursday.
On Tuesday, Lady Gaga was nominated for a best actress Oscar for her role in the remake of “A Star Is Born.”
Perhaps a clear signal to values-minded viewers to stay away from the broadcast, however, she is not even the first nominee to draw headlines recently for a religious-based attack on a vice president.
Christian Bale, nominated for best actor for portraying former V.P. Dick Cheney, bucked the otherwise nonpartisan tone at the Golden Globes by thanking Satan for providing the inspiration.
