Though I am generally against universities taking sides in political debates (they should maintain an open environment), sometimes it is just wrong to stay neutral. This amendment will have a big impact on many of Hamline's students, staff and faculty. They feel, with justification, that it is a form disrespect and discrimination, a devaluation of their relationships that turns them into second class citizens in their own home. It is wrong to enshrine basic unequal treatment of this sort in the Minnesota constitution. The decent thing for Hamline to do would be to come out against this sort of unfairness.

Good for her. A "University" should not take sides if they are, indeed, for open discourse and free speech.

Hamlime has the right to not be battered into liberal submission.
