A Letter to the Editor in the Wall Street Journal
, responding to their editorial about Marquette’s attempt to fire this blogger:
Doesn’t Professorial Tenure Exist for Things Like This?
Tenured Marquette Professor John McAdams punished for blogging, free speech, repression of the non-politically correct
April 14, 2016 1:54 p.m. ET
Marquette University Prof. John McAdams apparently doesn’t understand that academic freedom applies only to correct thought and speech (“Punished for Blogging at Marquette,” Review & Outlook, April 8). He would have been wiser to advocate for something like paying reparations to ISIS for the Crusades. It is discouraging to realize that families and students are impoverishing themselves for an education at Marquette, an institution run by people who seem not to think.
