Second Lady Karen Pence, the wife of the US vice-president, will return to teaching art at a school that requires employees to oppose LGBT lifestyles.
The school in Springfield, Virginia, bars teachers from engaging in or condoning "homosexual or lesbian sexual activity" and "transgender identity".
Mrs Pence previously taught art at the school for more than a decade while her husband was a member of Congress.
A spokeswoman for Mrs Pence has hit back at criticism of her employer.
"Mrs Pence has returned to the school where she previously taught for 12 years," the second lady's spokeswoman Kara Brooks said in a statement.
"It's absurd that her decision to teach art to children at a Christian school, and the school's religious beliefs, are under attack."
According to a job application for the Immanuel Christian School, a private school, applicants must initial a passage promising to "live a personal life of moral purity".
It lists homosexuality along with premarital sex, polygamy, sexual harassment and sex abuse, among other factors, as examples of moral misconduct.
"I understand that the term 'marriage' has only one meaning; the uniting of one man and one woman," the document states.
A parent agreement on the elementary school's website says that they can "refuse admission" or "discontinue enrolment" of a pupil "if "the atmosphere or conduct within a particular home, the activities of a parent or guardian, or the activities of the student are counter to, or are in opposition to, the biblical lifestyle the school teaches".
In a statement on Tuesday, Mrs Pence said she is "excited to be back in the classroom and doing what I love to do, which is to teach art to elementary students".
Online, Mrs Pence has faced some sharp criticism for affiliating with the school while serving as second lady.

Way to be disingenuous there BBC.
What was it Jon Sopel said to Trump?
"impartial, free and fair"
=’s kill all gay people? I would say unbelievable but it ain’t.
Again - so what and good for her?
I dont hear or see any hand wringing from the times or BBC about the womens march hanging out with Farrakhan or the Democrats racist support racism and Christian legislation as well as outright blocking any non-progressive speech on social media.
Good for her.
I made sure my kids weren’t subjected to this propaganda at their schools.
And she will also be teaching “How to make a salad.”/s
Amazing how the media decide to push certain stories.
Because they aren’t on board with all.the LGBT business, they are tagged as anti gay, and the liberal outrage spews forward. Because in today’s culture, not being fully on board with the cross dressers and people demanding special rights because of gender dysphoria, targets you in today’s world.
Anti LBGT school Anything short of full advocacy for this crap is labeled anti LBGT.
Couldn’t “anti-LGBTXYZ school” be just as accurately described as “private Christian school”? I mean, if one were willing to forego the frothing, values-laden rhetoric.
GOOD!! DECENT!!! MORAL!!! Words the DEmocrats DESPISE!
Based on the Headline, I am imagining that there is a school with a sign out front saying “The Anti LBGQT School”.
If its a dude with two women, does that count as lesbianism? Asking for a friend.
Exactly. They want do to the Pences, Chick Fill A, any orthodox Bible believing Christian person or institution what they did to Anita Bryant back in the late 1970s/early 1980s.
Yes, f...homosexuals are damned and determined to get rid of the Bible, Torah, and religious freedom for true religions.
Only if the dude identifies as a lesbian trapped in a mans body.
That works for me.
