It would appear the decision to invite Greg Gianforte to Carroll College is meeting with some opposition at the school, as the school’s President, Tom Evans, has sent faculty a notice of an “open forum” to discuss Gianforte’s role. A tipster sent me this:
I realize that this is short notice and it is the busy month of April, but I am hoping you might find time to join me this coming Monday, April 14 at 4:00 in the Lower Cube for a conversation surrounding a growing topic of concern with the involvement of Greg Gianforte on campus. During the meeting I would like to explain the conversations leading to the potential new programming and the anticipated (and voluntary) interaction to provide opportunities for our students and community. I am also most willing to discuss anything else you would like.
Please know that I have valued our open communication, individually and collectively, and that I look forward to continuing it with this time together. I hope you can find time in your schedules to attend.
No word on whether attendees to the forum will be required to affirm that Jesus walked with the dinosaurs or that it should be perfectly acceptable for institutions to discriminate against people because of their sexual orientation.
