      As for the comment you linked, I read it differently. Rather than ask for more resignations, I saw it as saying that resignations won't fix anything. Conversations need to be had ;and instead of losing their livelihood, they could "atone" by having a forum and some involvement with community orgs, particularly the gay student bodies.
