Last October, 2012 - the social conservative but incredibly anti-gay, bigoted organization named Family Research Council (FRC) supported Gallaudet's Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Angela McCaskill when it emerged that she signed the anti-gay petition to force the already passed marriage equality bill onto the referendum.
When Dr. McCaskill held a press conference, the representatives of Family Research Council stood next to her. Dr. Angela McCaskill had the nerve to thank the FRC for their support. FRC has been classified as a hate group by Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). It is obvious that Dr. McCaskill is clueless about the FRC's background at that time.
This woman has a doctorate degree, for chrissakes! This raised a legitimate question - does this woman keep up with the current events? To me, it is unlikely. Any sane person with doctorate degree would not thank nor stand next to the hate group in FRC. But Dr. McCaskill did.
That moment when Dr. McCaskill defied the Deaf GLBT people by thanking the FRC, it is much worse than just a slap on our faces. It is like she spat, slapped & punched in our faces, really!
Now the FRC has made another headline as of today, the FRC said it is OK to kidnap the children away from their gay parents. See this link for further details.
Yes, the very same group that Dr. McCaskill thanked at her press conference last October. Yes, Gallaudet's own Chief Diversity Officer Dr. McCaskill, really! I should mention that the so-called Chief Diversity Officer was supposed to have a community dialogue with Gallaudet's GLBT students, faculty & staff since she was reinstated last January. But she cancelled it twice as of far. It is such a shame that this clueless woman who has a doctorate degree used the press conference to thank a hate group for supporting her. Imagine thanking Ku Klux Klan at her own press conference for supporting her, really.
That! That! That!
That should tell you enough about her warped vision of diversity, really.
