This is an older case, but another example of socons being persecuted for their views going against the normalization of homosexuality.
(BLOGSOME:) ADF has given UI one week to reinstate Howell’s teaching assignments for the coming fall.
Late Thursday, we received a letter from the University stating that they are “suspending” the decision of his department chair pending review by the committee. While this is a nice step, this does not resolve the issue. It is meaningless for Professor Howell to retain his status as an adjunct professor without being able to teach any classes, and the committee’s review of the situation does not change the fact that Professor Howell was relieved of his previously scheduled teaching responsibilities because his instruction to students was deemed not to meet standards of “inclusivity.” Save for that email, Professor Howell would still be teaching Introduction to Catholicism in the approaching semester. That is a violation of his constitutional rights, and we have indicated as much to the University in our response letter, sent today.

CHAMPAIGN, IL – (Alliance Defense Fund) – The University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana confirmed to Alliance Defense Fund attorneys Thursday that it will once again allow popular professor Dr. Kenneth Howell to teach on Catholicism after recently firing him for explaining the Roman Catholic Church’ position on human sexual behavior to members of his class.
after saying he had become “personna non grata” in many circles at the University – this was announced:
I have accepted a new position as the Senior Fellow of the School Catholic Thought of the John Paul II Newman Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I begin July 1st. My transition from U of I Urbana-Champaign and St. John’s will be smooth and uneventful. Thank to all who supported me in my trials. Dr. Ken
This is what people with a homosexuality agenda do to anyone who disagrees with their (dysfunctional) views.
