Formspring Post #1

Taking a leaf out of my friend Fran’s book, I am going to use formspring for some ideas. Here is the first of this installment.

More personally, I feel like the whole incident was handled improperly. However, a private institution maintains the right to follow its own doctrine in whatever way it chooses. Also, to say that Marquette is anti-gay is to narrow an argument. People who are riled up about this conveniently ignore the fact that gays are currently employed at Marquette (sidenote: I am using the word gay to refer to both male and female homosexuals). Like I said, the incident was handled very poorly, but I maintain that Marquette is well within its rights to control any offers it puts forward based on whatever criteria they choose.
