    I don't have a problem with it. He should be clear as to when he is speaking as a representative of the university when he wants to discuss things like this. But a university community needs to be a place where the free expression of beliefs is encouraged. As long as he doesn't advocate discriminatory practices against the gay community, I don't know why this is an issue. He's saying that sexual orientation shouldn't be part of the list with gender, race, culture and religion.

    If I was a leader in the gay community, I think my next move would be to create a christian church sect and make gay sex a sacrament. Then, I could bring suit on the grounds of religious persecution when these issues arise.

    I also think as buff fans we shouldn't throw rocks. We had a certain coach that made similar comments while using CU as a pulpit.

    Only in Lincoln? Come on. Apparently you have a very short memory or you are very young.

    Good for him. Still a free country for now. He should stand up for his beliefs. Not as a public figure though. At least during these liberal only tolerant times. Hopefully we can return to a time where public figures aren't bashed for being christian and expressing it publicly.

    Was wondering how many posts it would take to mention it. Yes, this exactly.

    Whatever. Obviously this stance is fine with his AD. If I was his AD, I'd tell him to worry about winning games. While I'm not a Tebow fan, I understand more leeway for his outspokenness, as he wasn't a university employee and put butts in the seats.

    I'm fine with people having opinions. I just hope the focus in NE is on this and the focus in Boulder this time around is on winning football games.

    Sure do. Why do you ask? I prefer not to mention him by name, as doing so could possibly make me throw up in my mouth. I was just pointing out that it's not much of a controversy if it's okay with your boss & he personally agrees with what is said.

    He's a politician & knows how to play the game.
