WaPo Takes Side on Gally Controversy

The Washington Post has come out against the Gallaudet University decision to suspend its Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Angela McCaskill. You can read the Post's editorial here. It reads in part:
Firing, or threatening to fire, a diversity officer for off-campus political activity strikes us as inconsistent with “open sharing of thoughts and ideas.” After all, if Ms. McCaskill does oppose gay marriage, then she holds the same view that President Obama did, at least publicly, until five months ago. Would he have been unfit to serve as a diversity officer at Gallaudet?
