      This is so typical of the hate mongers on the far right. They victimize, then claim they are the victim. They preach intolerance, but claim to be exercising their First Amendment rights while ignoring the rights of others. This woman deserves nothing. She is lucky she still has her job.

      yes, she’s lucky that black rights were never put to a vote, but were legislated into being.

      had HER rights been put to a vote when it was time, she wouldn’t HAVE those rights.

      her cheap “democracy” excuse is pure bullsh**.

      she’s a homophobe and is looking to weasel her way out of it.

      Whatever. If an employee at Oral Roberts or Liberty or Brigham Young University had signed a pro-gay-marriage petition, they’d probably lose their jobs.

      Also, if this bitch’s job is Chief Diversity Officer, could she make her bigotry a little less obvious?

      What a vile bitch. Hopefully her bigotry will cost her any future employment helping people as she is not capable of doing so.

      I think it’s hilarious and absolutely preposterous when opponents of equality flip the intolerance argument to fit their small minded world view. Give me a break. And, she’s a Chief Diversity Officer, doesn’t she have to be well versed in diversity to qualify for her job? “I’m a Chief Diversity Officer, but at night I attend KKK meetings.” Are you really that vapid?

      See, one of the interesting things that this particular situation highlights is how people view gays and equality and how nonchalant people view it. We see it as discrimination, they see it as something unworthy of attention.

      Lady, you’re in desperate need of a clue.

      She’s entitled to her political views. Just as the rest of the campus is entitled to recognize her as being a whack-a-doodle which they should tell (sign) her often.

      I was willing to cut her some slack until she wrapped herself in that flag and threw herself up there on that cross. If she loves “democracy” so much, have the school vote on whether they should keep her or not.

      The appeal to democracy sounds like someone shifting blame and trying to talk her way out of tight spot. The notion that my civil rights ought be subjected to popular election is patently offensive. That she didn’t anticipate the ramifications of her having signed the petition speakers to her lack of qualification for the job of chief diversity officer.

      @LaTeesha: Laughing here, ASL was my language in college and I am trying to envision the sigh, “Wack – a – doodle.”

      To be honest, I’m really torn on this one. If she’s not teaching against curriculum, why can’t she sign some stupid bigoted paper at her church? I do recognize the irony, but is not the freedom to be an ignorant bigot guaranteed by the constitution, just like being free and equal is?

      @Cyn: I support her right to free expression, exercise of religion, etc. However, her actions at least call into question her qualification to be the “Chief Diversity Officer” of a university.
