Mike Pence urges Taylor U. grads to ‘stand up’ for Christianity after dozens walk out on him
Vice President Mike Pence used a Saturday commencement address at Taylor University to urge a religious resolve among the Christian school’s graduates and faculty, dozens of whom walked out minutes before Pence began speaking.
“Throughout most of our American history it’s been pretty easy to call yourself a Christian, but things are different now,” Pence said. “Lately, it’s become acceptable, even fashionable, to malign traditional Christian beliefs. So as you prepare to leave this place and build your life on a Christ-centered, world-engaging foundation poured here at Taylor University, be prepared to stand up.”
