Skip to comments.Phil Robertson Honored at Alma Mater; Faculty Walk Out
Posted on 05/28/2014 6:16:19 AM PDT by rktman
Three faculty members walked out of the Louisiana Tech University commencement ceremony Saturday to show their disdain for alumnus Phil Robertson.
Students in the Louisiana Tech's LGBTQ organization, Prism, sparked the idea via social media.

Well aren’t they special...
Dang. They suck, more ways then one.
Well, there are three readily identifiable faculty members who should be thrown out on their gay as...er....Obamholes.
I would like to call out the LGBTQ organization.
The Q stands for questioning. They tell us that being gay is not a choice, that it’s inborn, Lady Gaga sings to us they are Born That Way, and all that. So how in the sam hill can you be questioning about your orientation??? If there is no choice involved, you are born this way or that way, how can anyone be questioning? Yet these homosexual oriented organizations tell us they welcome people who are questioning.
I’ve heard of LBGT....Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender.
What is LBGTQ? What is the Q?
Abolish tenure. Why should anyone have a guaranteed job for life at taxpayer’s expense?
PC Blvd. The one way street
Only left turns allowed on this street.
Of course I also wish that stupid would burn to give them a taste of what is in store for them in eternity.
I think by walking out the demonstrated that they are heterophobic. Isn’t there some law, ruling, requirement, statute or statement against xxx-phobia?
The Board of Regents for the university should immediately reset each and everyone of the 'walkouts' tenure qualification start date to the date after their walkout - that is, if they're not asked to resign instead.
3 ports = 1 starboard
Only three? Not bad. Pretty good actually.
The “Q” stands for “Queer.” No, really.
I know a tenured professor who lives quite large thanks to an extremely generous salary and other benefits. He rarely spends any time in the classroom; way too busy enjoying his toys and lavish lifestyle courtesy of government subsidies and student debt.
There should be no organizations on any campus with the sole purpose of promoting sexuality of any type. The homosexual organizations are there to promote sexual intercourse, nothing else. They may claim otherwise, but the root of their organization is nothing more than sex. Organizations on campus should exist to promote education and professionalism in society. Period.
Isn’t that cute? They threw a hissy fit.
That’s a classy move!
Nice one, ‘educators’. You certainly taught something that day.
There are none less tolerant than liberals screaming for tolerance.
I wonder why they don’t reach out and try to UNDERSTAND him....they should really be more accepting and inclusive.....
I’ve also seen some other letters after the Q, in some descriptions of the “LBGT” or “LGBTQ” community. I think that there are additional combinations in the sexual identity/sexual orientation industry. Sort of like Facebook has 56 different gender possibilities. They are getting carried away with all of this, in my opinion.
Isn’t that kinda redundant?
THREE?! that does not constitute “Faculty Walk Out”
as much get up to go to the bathroom at any given moment... especially the metro sexuals who have to primp more.
Only three? LA Tech is doing way better than the average apparently.
I think this is a clear violation of the theology of political correctness which calls for tolerance and celebration of diversity. By definition, if you are being tolerant, doesn’t that mean you would never walk out on someone like that?
Fire all three.
I used to work for a major university and know a lot of professors who fit that description. I say let the remuneration be determined by the customers, same as every other market.
Let them walk. good riddance to bad garbage as far as I am concerned.
The place probably instantly smelled better after they left the room.
They are as entitled to their freedom of expression as Robertson is to his.
Sometimes the ‘Q’ stands for questioning, sometimes it stands for queer.
I agree. I’m frustrated that this has filtered down to the high school level. Many high schools have “Gay Straight Alliance” clubs. Why do we need a club in high school to talk about homosexuality?
I understand that, if one feels the pull, that consenting adults will head on down to The Castro and explore that lifestyle to their heart’s content. My frustration is that we are talking about this issue with high school kids in the first place.
I was talking to a young person not long ago, don’t know if he was liberal or not. But he accepted that there were gay straight alliance clubs. He was shocked to hear me say that, back when I was in school, such a club would be unthinkable.
I want tenure at my job!
"I beg your pardon?"
This is an award or recognition voted on by the alumni for an alumnus of the school. No one cares what the “queer folk” think of it and the faculty who walked out have brought embarrassment and shame to the institution. If I were in charge, I’d void their tenured status and fire then on that basis.
Marxists are so open minded.
Pray America wakes up
So, I guess that means that if they choose to rise during Phil's speech and masturbate, that's their right given your interpretation of 'free speech?'
The level of personal extravagance would be hard to comprehend for most people who don’t get to see the materialistic side of these “poor scholars”. You’ll never see news stories about them living large.
faculty that left is depraved
And? Why is this considered news? If the faculty members chose to walk out, that's their privilege. But they should remember that God is not mocked.
sex is to be kept quiet, no kissing and telling
No, you can't have it! The next next thing you'll want will be taking the summer off. And then a sabbatical. /sarc
They knew Robertson would be speaking when they chose to attend so they attended with the intent of making a statement.
...or better yet, he needs to donate a building and required to have his name on it...
Just to piss in their cornflakes
Q stands for questioning? I did not know that. I thought it was for Queer. LOL.
