WASHINGTON — The chief diversity officer at Gallaudet University has been placed on paid leave after she signed a petition to put a gay marriage referendum on the ballot in Maryland.Same-sex marriage in Maryland started when state officials began recognizing alleged marriages from out of state, against the will of the people. Any fair-minded person favoring self-government would also favor putting the issue to a vote of the people.
Gallaudet President T. Alan Hurwitz announced Angela McCaskill’s leave in a statement Wednesday.
Hurwitz says McCaskill “participated in a legislative initiative that some feel is inappropriate” for someone in her position.
Gallaudet is the nation’s leading university for the deaf and hard of hearing.
McCaskill lives in Maryland, where voters will decide in November whether to approve a state law legalizing gay marriage. The referendum was placed on the ballot by opponents of same-sex unions.
And yet a university official got suspended for signing a petition on her own private time.
Same-sex marriage lost a vote in California in part because the gay lobby made it clear that they would not tolerate any diversity of opinion on the subject, and would use marriage law to force people to acquiesce to the gay agenda.
Update: McCaskill is a deaf black woman whose skin color was supposed to make her a good diversity officer. The complaint against her came from some (probably gay) anonymous professor who refused to identify himself or herself. There are many things wrong here.
