After Vice President Mike Pence defended his wife’s employment at an anti-LGBTQ school, Lady Gaga responded.
According to Newsweek, at her Las Vegas concert on Saturday, Gaga said:
"And to Mike Pence who thinks that it’s acceptable that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ. You are wrong. You said we should not discriminate against Christianity? You’re the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian," Gaga said to a cheering crowd. "I am a Christian woman, 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."
Karen Pence is employed at Immanuel Christian School, which includes an employee application form that says employees who are involved in homosexuality cannot work at the school. Individuals who participate in or condone homosexual relationships will not be admitted to the school.
Last week, Pence told Lauren Ashburn that it was “deeply offensive” for news organizations to criticize a Christian education.
“We have a rich tradition in America of Christian education and, frankly, religious education broadly defined. We celebrate it. The freedom of religion is enshrined in the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution prohibits a religious test for holding public office, so we’ll let the critics roll off our back. But this criticism of Christian education in America should stop."
Gaga also spoke about President Trump and the government shutdown, which has now been going on for 30 days.
"If the f---king President of the United States can please put our government back in business. There are people who live paycheck to paycheck and need their money."
