    I think of it more as showing people who picture American Evangelicals as some sort of "PRESIDENT TRUMP SUPPORTING MONOLITH!!" that there are indeed parts of it that don't actually support him or the members of his administration. It's sort of nice to have something you can point at to say "Agree or disagree with what they did, it's nice to see there are people that are prepared to show they think for themselves." I found it very encouraging. :wave:
    tulc(is kind of a fan of most people who make a stand, whether he agrees or disagrees with the stand itself) :)

    Baylor? That's a very conservative school. Southern Baptist institution. Cracks are spreading now. A conservative republican congressman just called for Trump to be impeached.

    Look for frantic and vengeful damage control efforts by Trump and Co.

    (Barbarian checks.....) Whoa. You can't even apply without a profession of faith. Even Baylor isn't that conservative. How did they get so many of those people walking out on Pence?

    Cracks are spreading in the dike...

    From the op article: “The small demonstration” & “only a fraction of the roughly 500 graduating students actually ended up walking out”

    A long way from dike problems.

    According to Fox News, "dozens" of students walked out when Mike Pence took the podium. Wouldn't have been news at a public university, but in a small, highly conservative school, it was a surprise.

    Following the decision of a conservative republican congressman to call for Trump's impeachment, this is a critical time for Donald Trump.

    Yep, DOZENS! lol Big time DIRE! Come on now!

    They didn't have to 'disinvite' the VP, and their protest was respectful without disrupting others. It didn't surprise me, and it didn't alarm me either.

    Following on the first conservative republican congressman to call for Trump's impeachment, it's just another crack in the cover-up.

    I seem to recall that there were no student walk outs when he spoke at my alma mater, Grove City College, two years ago, but some of the students refused to shake hands with him when they got their degrees.
