Question of the Day
Princeton had announced last year it would ban first-year students from Greek activities starting in the fall of 2012. But it was left to a committee to decide how to enforce compliance.
Princeton President Shirley Tilghman announced this week she had adopted the committee’s report. It includes a recommendation that leniency be considered for violators who are “extraordinarily forthcoming.”
Greek organizations are not recognized by Princeton and do not have houses. Princeton believes frats and sororities promote social exclusiveness and place an excessive emphasis on alcohol.
Scout official quits, supports ousted lesbian den mother
BRIDGEPORT — A board member for a regional Boy Scouts group has resigned in protest over the removal of a lesbian den mother in eastern Ohio because of the group’s ban on gays.
Parents in Bridgeport have rallied behind Jennifer Tyrrell, saying she was a great leader and they want her brought back.
David Sims of the Ohio River Valley Council tells the Los Angeles Times he resigned from the council’s board Friday after learning Ms. Tyrrell’s story.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation released the text of Mr. Sims’ resignation letter, which says he understands Ms. Tyrrell’s removal is legal but opposes it because he believes it is discrimination.
The Boy Scouts has stated that as a private organization it has a right to exclude gays. The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld the ban.
