Would you apply that to someone who applied to manage listening regarding racism? Should teachers not be allowed to teach subjects about which they have strong positions with which others disagree? "If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." -- Desmond Tutu One of my great pleasures as a professor was to be able to give an "A" when it was earned by someone writing a cleaer and well argued attack on lbgt rights, or any other position about which I have strong opinions. I ususally added, "Congratulations from your very own real live fairy. Welcome to the University." I think you set a very low standard of professionalism that promotes blandness and buraucracy. Thanks for asking.

If a person has already determined a firm opinion on the subject, would not that opinion unfairly colour the reporting that is asked. I affirm that everyone comes to the table with a worldview but that not withstanding, isn't it appropriate to try and level the playing field by asking that persons with strongly help opinions not apply.
