College administrator fired over ‘anti-gay’ column


You can say a lot of things as a tenured faculty member that you could not say as a service worker or administrator—positions that are not tenured. Case in point: Crystal Dixon was fired as the associate vp of human resources at the University of Toledo after she wrote a column criticizing comparisons between the drive for legalizing same-sex unions and the civil rights movement.

I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a Black woman. I am genetically and biologically a Black woman and very pleased to be so as my Creator intended. Daily, thousands of homosexuals make a life decision to leave the gay lifestyle evidenced by the growing population of PFOX (Parents and Friends of Ex Gays) and Exodus International just to name a few. Frequently, the individuals report that the impetus to their change of heart and lifestyle was a transformative experience with God; a realization that their choice of same-sex practices wreaked havoc in their psychological and physical lives.

Dixon has sought the help of the conservative ACLU, the Thomas More Law Center.

Creator’s note: I’ve been trying to publish this post and another on “Jews and Power” all day. However, I have been unable due to some irregular blogging issues that should be resolved soon.
