Sizable demonstration at ND for LGBT recognition

Hopefully, Jenkins will at least concede something so the university doesn’t lose any more face than it already has since the cartoon. I doubt he’ll expand nondiscrimination protections. In the last years, he’s fought that issue to hard (though lamely. His stated reasoning for denying LGBT employees protection was that it would be contrary to the university’s Catholic identity because promising not to fire homosexuals for homoseuxality would be tantamount to condoning sinful acts–as if every single person they hire isn’t equally guilty of Catholically illicit transgressions). But finally recognizing ND’s GSA might be the smaller thing he does so he can say he did something.
