Hopefully, my friend won’t mind I copy-pasted this from her Facebook status:
MU PROTEST TODAY!! The arts and sciences dept has been looking for a new dean and a contract for the position was offered and accepted by Jodi O’Brien, an out lesbian sociologist frm Seattle U. Fr. Wild is now considering to withdraw the offer b/c of some complaints that say an out lesbian working on issues of sexuality doesn’t belong at Marquette. 4:45, Wisconsin ave right outside the AMU.
Of course, O’Brien ought only be hired if she has merit, skills and accomplishments becoming of the job. But meritocracy cannot work against the whims of prejudice.
