Regarding Mr. Lloyd-Moffett’s Viewpoint in the Sunday, Feb. 12, edition of The Tribune (“Instead of offering excuses, Cal Poly should apologize to Muslim Student Association”): Comparing the Cal Poly College Republicans and the Muslim Student Association is an inappropriate comparison. One is a political party to which any religious group can and does register, the other is a religious organization.

Cal Poly owes no apology to the Muslim Student Association. Mr. Lloyd-Moffett states that the current administration has the opportunity to make concrete gestures to demonstrate its commitment to inclusivity and diversity. Maybe so, but not on this one.
