Sharing Your Beliefs

By ConcernedConservative on July 9, 2010

At the University of Illinois, a professor by the name of Ken Howell who has taught at the school for nine years was recently fired. A student came forth with the claim that this instructor was engaging in hate speech during a Catholicism course. All the professor said was that he agreed with the church’s teaching that homosexual acts are immoral. Robin Kaler who is the school’s spokeswoman said that his firing was a personnel issue and declined any further comments. Of course the student was not even brave enough to come forward on his own. He had a friend register the complaint and has chosen to remain anonymous.

Cary Nelson, president of the American Association of University Professors says that teachers are allowed to express their own beliefs and that he should not have lost his job over it. Or course, if things were flipped the other way and the professor said that homosexual acts were perfectly fine, then he probably would’ve gotten praised for it. No way would he have gotten fired for being so tolerant towards homosexuals. We should be allowed to share our beliefs and not be punished for it, especially if they are more conservative in nature. Why should the liberals try and control what we talk about?

    “Or course, if things were flipped the other way and the professor said that homosexual acts were perfectly fine, then he probably would’ve gotten praised for it. No way would he have gotten fired for being so tolerant towards homosexuals.”

    No, he would have been promoted, tenured, and moved to the big office with the great view.
