Marquette Philosophy Department Censorship Continues To Reverberate

It was a huge fiasco last fall: James South, Chair of the Philosophy Department at Marquette, ripped down from the door of a graduate student a quote from humorist Dave Barry.

South said it was “patently offensive.”

In Monday’s New York Post, an Op-Ed column from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education rehashes the story.

Of course, Marquette’s behavior sounds as sordid now as it did when the story broke.

Marquette, and especially the Marquette Philosophy Department will have a hard time living this one down.
