THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT – Ron Brown, a notorious anti-transgender activist and assistant football coach for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, was rebuked publicly by Chancellor Harvey Perlman for not making clear he wasn’t speaking for the university when he testified against a Omaha civic effort to protect transgender and LGB people from discrimination.
Perlman: “The Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska has made it clear that the university does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. And only the board can speak on university policy and practices.
When asked for his address for the record before giving testimony, Brown gave the address of the Husker football stadium and said ‘the Bible condemns homosexuality as sin.’ This prompted some to ask the Chancellor to step in.
John Carroll, a season ticket holder and Omaha attorney: “With all that young gay kids are facing today, having Coach Brown stand up in a public forum and call them sinners, made me sick to my stomach. If Mr. Brown insists on exercising his First Amendment rights all the while spewing anti-gay rhetoric and threats of eternal damnation, please have him use his own address in the future.”
While Brown said the rebuke wasn’t necessary, I’d say his behavior over the last few years is the kind of PR the Huskers don’t need.
