This is what happens when you oppose same-sex marriage in Maryland...



From NBC News:
The chief diversity officer at Gallaudet University was put on administrative leave Wednesday after the school learned she had signed a petition supporting efforts to reverse Marylandís same-sex marriage law, media reports say.

Dr. Angela McCaskill signed the petition at her church after her preacher spoke against gay marriage, the Planet DeafQueer blog reported on Monday, citing a Gallaudet faculty member who first spotted the administratorís name on the document. Voters in Maryland will decide on Nov. 6 whether to keep a state law passed earlier this year approving same-sex marriage.

ďI want to inform the community that I have placed Dr. Angela McCaskill on paid administrative leave effective immediately. It recently came to my attention that Dr. McCaskill has participated in a legislative initiative that some feel is inappropriate for an individual serving as Chief Diversity Officer; however, other individuals feel differently,Ē Gallaudet University President T. Alan Hurwitz said in a statement.

No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

If the employee's position wasn't "Chief Diversity Officer" I would agree with the employee.

If she wasn't willing to follow her job description and protect the rights of discriminated-against minority groups, she should have had the grace to resign on her own and find a more suitable position.

What does homosexual union have to do with "diversity" in a collegiate context? Please provide proof that homosexuality is a "discriminated against" group in the context of college life. Are gay students "mysteriously failing" at this campus (or any campus for that matter...) This is such a ridiculous straw man.

The parents of the late Tyler Clementi, who have started a foundation after their son jumped off a bridge, would beg to differ with you.
Tyler Clementi was an 18-year-old Rutgers University freshman who killed himself in September 2010 after discovering that his roommate had secretly used a webcam to stream Mr. Clementiís romantic interlude with another man over the Internet.

The suicide of Mr. Clementi, who jumped off the George Washington Bridge, focused national attention on the victimization of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth.
Tyler Clementi - The New York Times

Clementi's roommate was charged with 15 counts, including bias intimidation ó a hate crime that was based on the victimís sexual orientation ó and invasion of privacy and was convicted on all counts.

That was a crime by a student not discrimination by a university body or faculty. I stand by my previous statement.

When does signing a petition at Church when you're off the clock get you put on leave?

Her personal views would not affect her on the job. Thats what politicians say constantly.

That is not the new order of business though. "By any means necessary" is the cry of the modern "progressive." There are no off-limits areas. I am encouraged by the note in the article though
"We strongly disagree with the decision to put the chief diversity officer on leave and hope she is reinstated immediately," Josh Levin, campaign manager of Marylanders for Marriage Equality, said in a statement.
This shows me that at least Mr. Levin is not willing to violate anyone else's rights to achieve his political goals.

The tolerant seem to be taking the form of big brother & removing freedom of speech & thought.

Her personal beliefs do not prevent her from doing her job. And her job should not dictate to her personal beliefs inside the Church.

All the "progressives" had to do was take control of the education system and then just wait out the old guard. Eventually the traditional "common sense" is not very common anymore and the younger generation has not been taught classical Constitutionality. The culture reflects this and has for a while. People think the Constitution provides them freedom FROM religion even if it means interfering with another's freedom OF religion. They also have been told the "separation of Church and State" lie so long that they don't know any better.

This is right out of a textbook: "The Establishment Clause was intended to prevent any governmental endorsement or support of religion."

There is nothing in the Constitution prohibiting free religious practice of any government official or employee even while on the job. Congress praying "God bless America" does not in any way, shape or form constitute the creation of a theocracy. The Establishment Clause was and still does prohibit the federal government from ESTABLISHING a state religion or church. The modern interpretation of the clause is purely a liberal device to diminish the impact of God and replace it with a reverence for the State...

I tend to think people in goverment & colleges are not ignorant of that but are simply hypocritical. Or just fall back on the old excuse on it is all in how you interpret it.
