Joe Kimball of MinnPost.com shares this statement in support of Tom Emmer by Ryan Lyk, chairman of the Minnesota College Republicans:
“This sends the wrong message to conservative students at Hamline, and any students looking to apply there. Hamline University is a school that allegedly stands for diversity of opinion, but apparently that only applies if you meet the standards of the liberal activists who are already faculty. This is just another example of an educational institution attempting to insulate itself from anything that might challenge its engrained liberal beliefs of practices. Gay marriage has absolutely nothing to do with business law or Emmer’s abilities to teach it. If liberal activist David Schultz can work there, why can’t Tom?”
Emmer claims he was denied a job over his pro-marriage views.
