Vice President Mike Pence delivered the commencement address at Taylor University, a private Christian college in his home state of Indiana. But instead of a unanimous warm welcome, dozens of faculty members had walked out before Pence began speaking. One graduate Laura Rathburn told the Indianapolis Star that she was disappointed in Taylor's decision to welcome Pence as the commencement speaker and that, "I think it was an inappropriate decision. His presence makes it really difficult for everyone in the Taylor community to feel welcome and celebrated at our commencement." This is fascinating in that after four years of being exposed to different ideas and worldview, the college students weren't able to respectfully attend to a speech given by the vice-president of our nation. In another age, this would be called intolerance.
