"Natural Moral Law says that Morality must be a response to REALITY," he wrote in the e-mail. "In other words, sexual acts are only appropriate for people who are complementary, not the same." Ken Howell* -Professor University of Illinois responding to an e-mail ambush question from a student and the student's friend was offended.
Hate speech according to the fine folks at University of Illinois.
A Professor, a practicing Roman Catholic,teaches a course about Catholicism and Modern Culture. A student asks a question via e-mail. The student's friend sees the e-mail, though he was not involved in the exchange. A University of Illinois colleague intercepts the ambush question and gets Ken Howell fired for promoting hate speech.
Hate Speech is a Progressive parlor game. It is bullied into law and is used to drive wedges between neighbors. Hate Speech is only important when Progressives determine for whom the Bell Shall Toll. It tolls for Catholics, it tolls for devout religious Jews, it tolls for any person who finds abortion a Prime Offence and it tolls for anyone who disagrees that marriage should be between "Non-Complementary" Human Beings.
Catholics, bishops down to little girls in First Communion dresses must shut up, or fully agree that gay marriage, abortion, euthanasia, and redistribution of wealth are just wonderful.
Professor Ken Howell is getting pay back for John "Progressive Educational Icon" Scopes. Monkey Time!
The ACLU will not aid Ken Howell - it will take the cause of the anonymous e-mail punks.
Keep Professor Howell in our prayers folks - he is going to become the Jon Burge of Gay Advocacy politics. They have more money than the Vatican to destroy this poor man.
Robert McKim, the religion department head and the louse who helped ambush Kenneth Howell, is Darwinian Champ - a lower life form pretending to be a bi-ped.
The University of Illinois is a disgrace.
