Two Groups Now Planning Protest at Gallaudet

WASHINGTON (AP) —Supporters and opponents of gay marriage in Maryland are now planning to rally at Gallaudet University for the reinstatement of an administrator who signed a petition opposing gay marriage.

Angela McCaskill was placed on paid leave as chief diversity at Gallaudet, a university for the deaf and hard of hearing in Washington, after administrators learned that she signed the petition. She has said she’s not anti-gay but thinks Maryland voters should decide whether gay marriage should be legal.

Ministers who support gay marriage were already planning a rally Thursday at the campus. Now, the National Black Church Initiative, which opposes gay marriage, is planning a protest at the same time. Both groups are calling for McCaskill to be reinstated.

The university hasn’t issued a definitive statement about McCaskill’s future.
