Update: Loyalty Oath

Back on May 15th I shared People for the American Way's call to action regarding an instructor fired for refusing to sign a loyalty oath. The Chronicle of Higher Education (which has a subscription only site) reported today that Cal State-Fullerton and the lecturer reached an agreement over the state loyalty oath. The instructor, a Quaker and pacifist, had been fired for refusing to sign the oath as written. She and the university have negotiated the language in an explanatory statement that will allow her to sign the oath.

David, of course, forwarded this from the Chronicle to me, but refused to post it himself on religious grounds.
