Gally Rally over Petition controversy

Angela McCaskill is getting support from two ministers who support same-sex marriage. Reverends Delman Coates and Donte Hickman say they will lead protest rallies every week until the Gallaudet Diversity Officer is reinstated. McCaskill was put on leave after supporting a petition drive led by same-sex marriage opponents. Both men have appeared in TV ads supporting same-sex marriage. They issued a joint statement saying it is not acceptable that Gallaudet disciplined her “for merely exercising her right as a citizen in our democracy.” There are television ads running for both sides of the issues that refer to the situation. The first rally will be held this Thursday (October 25) at Gallaudet University.
