Is it a religious view, per se, to be part of an advocacy campaign to encourage other people to inject their religious views into public school science classrooms? I think that promoting unconstitutional behavior inimical to the common weal deserves consideration in any professional evaluation.

Just to be clear, I wasn't saying that Gonzales ID views and activities shouldn't have been considered, only that even if you ignore them completely his rejection appears justified.

IMO, there is large a muddy line between discrimination based on a persons views (and extracurricular activities), and legitimate judgment of how those reflect their suitability for a position.

I admit that I don't know enough about Gonzales activities prior to the tenure to dispute to have an opinion of where he fell on that line.
