Marquette Warrior on Vicki McKenna Show


From this past Tuesday, discussing the kerfuffle over the Marquette Philosophy instructor who told a student that arguments opposing gay marriage would be homophobic, and that any gay students in the class should not be exposed to such arguments, since they would be offended.

What do you recommend students do? My sister and I have both taken classes with you, and think highly. For instance, tomorrow the WBC is supposedly coming to campus. I disagree with gay marriage, and have arguments beyond "God hates fags" but the university is hard lining this message. I don't want to support the WBC, but MU is going against all Catholic values.

Speak out as much as your dare (and unfortunately, you may face significant bullying if you speak out in some venues).

Complain if you encounter real unfairness (which is not the same as somebody just disagreeing with you). But complain to the Dean, Department Chair, or Student Affairs about any bullying, threats, arrogant dismissals of your views, etc.

And always feel free to come to me and explain the details. I'm happy to publicize such things.

P.S. It's extremely unlikely that the Westboro Baptist Church will show up tomorrow. The last time they claimed they were going to demonstrate here, they failed to show.
