A source at Pomona just emailed me this email from President Oxtoby.
To: The Pomona College Community"Aftermath"? I would have used a different word, but then again, I wouldn't have endorsed -- or come close to endorsing a position that isn't in my power to endorse.
From: David Oxtoby, President
In the aftermath of the passage of Proposition 8, I have received a number of messages of concern from faculty, students, and staff at Pomona College. As you know, the issue of gay marriage has generated considerable debate both here in California and throughout the country.
I recognize of course that members of our community have different views on this particular proposition and on the underlying issues. I trust, though, that you will join me in expressing support for those who feel negatively affected by the passage of this measure. Whatever our views, we can affirm together that Pomona College will remain an inclusive and tolerant community that respects difference and welcomes diversity
Notice how he doesn't say anything about the Republicans who have had their property destroyed and nothing has been done by President Oxtoby. We lost an entire election and yet Oxtoby doesn't say anything about treating Republicans uncivilly, like say, yelling in front of their dorm rooms. Just what diversity does President Oxtoby covet? The email is a clue, but I leave it for you to draw the conclusions, dear readers.
