Support Marriage = Might Lose Your Job?

This is definitely not persecution...
Angela McCaskill, a 23-year veteran of the university, was placed on paid leave as the university investigates her support for traditional marriage.
McCaskill was one of 200,000 residents who signed a petition to put “Maryland’s Question 6” on the ballot. The measure is a referendum on same-sex “marriage.”
The Washington Blade published the names and addresses of every person who signed the petition. An anonymous faculty member spotted McCaskill’s name in the newspaper and immediately notified authorites.
Hurwitz said McCaskill, who earned the school’s first Ph.D as a deaf African-American woman, was immediately placed on leave. Her job remains in jeopardy.
Remember - persecution is when the clergy lose their jobs. When lay people lose their jobs that's just a minor inconvenience. Loss of livelihood is hardly worth worrying about.
I'm sure Angela McCaskill doesn't feel persecuted at all.
