Vice President Mike Pence is getting pushback from Taylor University students and alumni after the small evangelical Christian school tapped the former Indiana governor to be this year’s commencement speaker.

Over 3,300 people have signed a change.org petition to get Pence’s invitation to the mid-May commencement ceremony rescinded, claiming the “Trump-Pence Administration’s policies” are “not consistent with the Christian ethic of love we hold dear.”

The article goes on to state the following:

One Taylor grad said the school, “should be ashamed…I am physically shaking…I feel personally attacked,” but not all alumni agree and Taylor officials said they are standing by their decision.

Upset alumni and students are voicing their anger as South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a Democratic presidential hopeful, criticized Pence. Buttigieg, who is openly gay, discussed his sexual orientation during an event hosted by the LGBTQ Victory Fund, saying: “If me being gay was a choice, it was made far, far above my pay grade … That’s the thing that I wish the Mike Pence’s of the world would understand – that if you got a problem with who I am – your problem is not with me, your quarrel sir, is with my creator.”

    Don’t like what the VP says don’t listen. What you let comeinto your head is your choice. Chances are if your that closed minded to hearing the VP speak then you have gotten a poor education. That’s what education is about hearing new ideas and learning from them. It seems like in most high learning institutions that the crazies like back in the 60’s are running the show. The only difference this time is the majority of the faculty are part of the crazies.

    Satan is working overtime to silence anyone Christian. Anyone who follows the word of God, The Almighty God. The Lord Thy God will prevail and all who accept him will be saved from what Satan has planned.
    With that said, let’s sit and watch the unbelievers self-destruct. 😂😂😂
