The nation's leading university for the deaf and hard of hearing has reinstated its chief diversity officer, who was suspended for three months after signing a petition circulated by opponents of gay marriage in Maryland.
Maryland voters will have the opportunity in November to vote for or against homosexual "marriage." A vote for Question 6 is a vote to affirm the Maryland General Assembly's narrow vote to legalize homosexual "marriage," while a vote against Question 6 is a vote to keep the traditional definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
Gallaudet University's chief diversity officer — on administrative leave for signing a petition to bring Maryland's same-sex marriage law to a vote — demanded on Tuesday to be reinstated to her old job and to be fairly compensated by the university for the emotional damage and embarrassment her suspension has caused.
Leaders on both sides of the Maryland fight over same-sex marriage are urging Gallaudet University to reinstate an employee who was suspended because she signed a petition in favor of traditional marriage.
She had said nothing at all about homosexuality, but merely exercised her First Amendment right to "petition the government" — in this case, to allow voters in Maryland to have a say regarding the redefinition of marriage.
But people on both sides of the gay marriage debate in Maryland, where Ms. McCaskill lives, had said she shouldn't be punished for exercising her First Amendment rights.
