FRC Continues Gallaudet Attacks

“So far, the best argument for protecting marriage may be sitting in the President’s office of Gallaudet University. There, voters got a unique view of the real-life persecution that awaits anyone who opposes same-sex ‘marriage.’ Last week, when Gallaudet’s Dr. Angela McCaskill was outed for signing a petition in favor of a public vote on marriage, she was exiled from the University she called home for 23 years. Now, instead of sitting in her office helping students, she’s meeting with attorneys, trying to come to grips with President Alan Hurwitz’s decision to banish her from campus. Calling McCaskill’s actions ‘inappropriate,’ Hurwitz is putting a face on the intolerance that FRC and other marriage advocates have warned about for years.

“Unfortunately, that’s always been the underlying, totalitarian message of the homosexual movement. The only difference here is that Maryland voters have been warned: public dissent will not be tolerated. Not surprisingly, liberals are racing to cover up Gallaudet’s mess, insisting that they believe in free speech as much as the next guy. Tell that to the wedding cake bakers, the T-shirt makers, the bed and breakfast owners, the military chaplains, the high school teachers, the restaurant owners, the photographers, the churches, the Massachusetts parents, and others who were fired, sued, harassed, fined, and suspended. Like Angela, their biggest crime was having an opinion contrary to the radical Left.” – Hate group leader Tony Perkins, via press release.
