Dr. Kenneth Howell update

The American Catholic: “The Alliance Defense Fund which is representing Dr. Howell, sent a letter to the University of Illinois on July 12, demanding his reinstatement. Read the letter here. The Alliance Defense Fund highlights the absurdity of this situation rather well with this statement: ‘A university cannot censor professors’ speech–including classroom speech related to the topic of the class–merely because certain ideas “offend” an anonymous student,’ said ADF Senior Counsel [David French]. ‘To fire a professor for teaching the actual subject matter of his course is outrageous. It’s ridiculous that a school would fire a professor without even giving him a chance to defend himself when he simply taught Catholic beliefs in a class about Catholic beliefs.’”
