In a commencement speech delivered at Liberty University Saturday, Vice President Mike Pence told thousands of students that they should “be ready” for an increase in personal attacks on their faith.
In a bid to encourage and equip young Christians to live out their calling in our modern secular culture, Pence warned that, increasingly, believers will be asked to “tolerate things” that go completely against their personal faith and spiritual convictions. “You’re going to be asked to bow down to the idols of the popular culture,” he explained, noting that it has become “acceptable and even fashionable to ridicule and discriminate against people of faith.” Highlighting the absurdity of the secular left and its militant opposition to open Christian expression, Pence referenced the case lodged against the Little Sisters of the Poor by the previous administration.
To the @LibertyU graduates: As you leave this place, go forth for Liberty. We will all be cheering you every step of the way. And never forget: Where the spirit of the Lord is, there’s Liberty. pic.twitter.com/GHr0lCunTV
