Skip to comments.University's diversity chief put on leave after signing anti-gay marriage petition

The chief diversity officer at Gallaudet University was put on administrative Wednesday after the school learned she had signed a petition supporting efforts to reverse Marylands 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 administrators 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.

Hilarious. Makes a mockery of the department’s own title to fire her over a “diverse” opinion.
I can spell lawsuit in sign language.
Diversity only flows one way.
So she’s not allowed to have an opinion on an issue? Seriously? Get a lawyer, lady, it’s payday!!
Diversity means you had better fall into line and support Zee Partee or else.
More intolerance of the tolerant.....
Diversity means we are all in lock-step, chanting the party line in unison. Her action brands her as double-plus ungood.
Speaking of “Diversity” officials, are there any of those who are extracted from the ranks of Indians (Amer. or Asian), Oriental, Caucasian or other ranks? Or is this title a set aside for Blacks and those who qualify under that grouping?
“Diversity Chief”... is this really what tuition money goes too??? Christ, no wonder its so expensive!!!
Liberals view diversity the same way they view freedom of expression. It’s all very important to them until someone says or does something they don’t agree with, and then it’s time to shut people up and take their jobs away.
This is why you can’t win an argument with a liberal. Well, you CAN win, but they’ll never believe that you won. They have a built-in defense mechanism that says that their opinions are facts but your facts are worthless opinions that must be silenced.
United for Diversity!
As a private citizen, she goes to church on Sunday, signs a petition in support of reversing the same-sex marriage law in her State, and is put on leave from her job. Boy oh boy...I can't wait to see what employee rule they cite to defend that move. I hope she sues and wins big!
The author, Matthew J. Franck, is a wonderful writer. This piece is in the latest issue of Hillsdale College Imprimis
Liberals are incapable of understanding your very well made point.
I wish I was an attorney in her state.
Diversity Chief fired over not being diverse in the correct PC slant of what that means: the very definition of IRONY.
Kind of like a Zampolit being relieved of duty for political crimes.
I wonder who they got to put her on Admin Leave, since that’s probably normally HER job...
Apparently she is a handicapped (deaf) black woman; blacks are being shown the bottom of the “victim ladder” (this started when Hispanics passed them in numbers in the 2000 census).
She is not the only black person to pay for opposing gay marriage; it seems that some think they are SO entitled to their jobs that the “white people rules” don’t apply to them. I work with some white women who think the same way.
This is so wrong and antiAmerican.
IF YOUR DIVERSITY DOESN'T CELEBRATE PERVERSITY IT AIN'T REAL "DIVERSITY!"
Yup. Administrative bloat (both numbers and salary levels) is the main driver of higher education costs.
last i checked it was ILLEGAL to fire soemone for their religious beliefs- but apparently liberals and gay advocates play by a different set of rules
So, the school’s top racist (Diversity is Racism) gets suspended for not being “diverse” enough?
It’s like Stalin purging the Red Army for not being “Commie enough”
No one is free if you can be fired for your opinions even if you do your job properly. What good is freedom of speech if you are not protected from perverts and other militants looking over things like petitions and donations in order to destroy those who disagree with them? These tactics are used by groups such as gay rights advocates to suppress, silence and punish citizens who oppose them. In my opinion we need laws to protect people from such attacks.
I’ll bet it was a Catholic university.
Nope. Gallaudet is an historic university for the deaf located in Washington DC. It has been around since the civil war. It is not religiously affiliated at all (federally chartered).
