Christianity Today editor mocks VP Pence’s respect for his wife and women, gets schooled

(National SentinelUn-Christian: The editor of a faith-based website lobbed a criticism at Vice President Mike Pence’s stated rule that he never dines alone with women who are not his wife, launching a cascade of anger and outrage from the Veep’s supporters.

Earlier this week, The New York Times published an op-ed by Katelyn Beaty, an editor-at-large for Christianity Today, bearing the headline, “A Christian Case Against the Pence Rule.”

Discussing the Pence rule in the context of the Harvey Weinstein scandal — a Hollywood executive accused of widespread sexual abuse — Beaty said despite the fact that some people say the rule would prevent those kinds of accusations, that’s not necessarily the case.

“[T]he Pence rule is inadequate to stop Weinstein-ian behavior,” she wrote. “In fact, it might be its sanctified cousin. It’s time for men in power to believe their female peers when they say that the rule hurts more than helps.”

Beaty wrote that her experience with the rule, which is practiced by scores of Christian men other than Pence out of respect for their wives and relationships, was that it led to an obsession with preserving the appearance of purity instead of common sense.

She added that he precept of the rule was mistaken.

“The Pence rule arises from a broken view of the sexes: Men are lustful beasts that must be contained, while women are objects of desire that must be hidden away,” Beaty wrote.

“Offering the Pence rule as a solution to male predation is like saying, ‘I can’t meet with you one on one, otherwise I might eventually assault you.’ If that’s the case, we have far deeper problems around men and power than any personal conduct rule can solve,” she claimed.

Critics say that the rule says nothing of the sort, but is intended to avoid contact that might be later misconstrued as improper by a partner or spouse.

 senior political analyst Brit Hume tweeted that though it was mocked initially, mostly by liberals, Pence’s rule was “looking better” all the time in light of so many sex scandals among Hollywood types and political figures.

“Mike Pence’s policy of avoiding being alone with women other than his wife looking better every day, though widely mocked when it first became known,” he tweeted.

Many Twitter users attacked Beaty, saying he wasn’t trying to protect himself from assaulting women but from being wrongly accused as doing so.

Very sad. Morals are out the roof thanks to corrupt disgusting pedo Hollywood indoctrination and silicone valley with D.C. elitists and the globalist lying media- tells us- real followers of Christ need to be out spoken to be heard over the thundering of evil, division, deceiving that had been granted access against humans. Their screeches and outbursts and juvenile paid for hate and satire must be taken down. Loving people and humanity and compassion as God delivered to his people will reign. They can laugh now but they will not laugh later.


That is NOT Mike Pence’s Rule. That is BILLY GRAHAMS rules and was implemented throughout most of his career…to avoid “all appearance of evil.” If he was always in the company of witnesses, no one could make false claims against him, thus he was really protecting the image of Christianity.


Katelyn Beaty, an editor-at-large for Christianity Today is an idiot. What are you 21 years old and a recent graduate of Bryn Mawr.
