The Gallaudet University official who was suspended for signing a petition backed by traditional marriage groups is back at work.
Gallaudet is the nation's leading university for the deaf. As CBN News reported, the school suspended its chief diversity officer for three months in October.
Dr. Angela McCaskill had signed a petition calling for the public to be allowed to vote on whether the state should legalize same-sex marriage.
Gallaudet is home to a prominent gay and lesbian community in Maryland. University officials said some felt her action was inconsistent with her role as chief diversity officer.
McCaskill said she is not anti-gay. She said she signed the petition at her church after listening to a sermon about marriage, adding that she felt it was important for Maryland voters to decide the issue.
People on both sides of the issue spoke up on McCaskill's behalf, saying she should not be punished for exercising her First Amendment rights.
