Shortly after an openly socialist professor defended his university’s decision to investigate a Christian librarian for “sexual harassment” just for recommending “The Marketing of Evil,” another professor is praising the school’s widely condemned actions and publicly attacking the book at the center of the controversy for being full of “bigotry” and “factual errors.”
“This was not a ‘free speech’ issue,” wrote Hannibal Hamlin, Ohio State University associate English professor, in the Mansfield News Journal. Justifying the faculty’s decision to launch a formal harassment investigation of librarian Scott Savage for recommending David Kupelian’s bestseller as required reading for freshmen, Hamlin wrote: “‘The Marketing of Evil,’ a book the librarian suggested, is indeed anti-gay. Its statement that homosexuality is ‘evil’ is unambiguous.”
Hamlin added: “But it was not the book’s suggestion that led to the harassment report, as claimed by the News Journal. Rather, the problem was the librarian’s subsequent unyielding response to criticisms of the book by a gay faculty member and other OSU faculty, who pointed to the book’s bigotry and its factual errors.”
The “factual errors” charge against Kupelian, it turns out, is in response to “The Marketing of Evil’s” expose of the notoriously fraudulent sex scientist, Alfred Kinsey – who is defended by OSU English Professor Norman Jones, who is openly homosexual.
To recap what has been called this year’s most “shameful” campus persecution case: Savage, head of Reference and Instructional Services at the Bromfield Library on Ohio State University’s Mansfield campus, had been condemned by a 21-0 faculty vote (with nine abstentions) on March 13 to be formally investigated for “sexual harassment.” Several professors, two of them openly homosexual, had become extremely upset over Savage’s nomination for the freshman reading program of “The Marketing of Evil.” Subtitled “How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom,” chapter one of the popular book exposes the marketing strategies and tactics of the “gay rights” movement.
One of the homosexual professors, J.F. Buckley, in a March 9 e-mail, reacted this way to Savage’s recommendation of Kupelian’s book: “As a gay man I have long ago realized that the world is full of homophobic, hate-mongers who, of course, say that they are not. So I am not shocked, only deeply saddened – and THREATENED [sic] – that such mindless folks are on this great campus. … You have made me fearful and uneasy being a gay man on this campus. I am, in fact, notifying the OSU-M campus, and Ohio State University in general, that I no longer feel safe doing my job. I am being harassed.”
Finally, with national media attention and the threat of a legal counterattack by the Alliance Defense Fund, OSU informed Savage April 18 that the charges against him had been withdrawn.
Nevertheless, OSU-Mansfield Associate History Professor Christopher Phelps recently jumped into the fray, defending the university’s actions, claiming the faculty uphold the highest standards of free speech and open academic inquiry – and condemned Kupelian’s book as “unabashed bigotry.”
And although Hamlin, in his News Journal opinion, condemned “The Marketing of Evil” for its supposed “factual errors,” he didn’t cite any. In fact, in the entire transcripts of the OSU-Mansfield faculty meetings in which Kupelian’s book was discussed, as well as in the transcript of the all inter-faculty e-mail exchanges – included in this Alliance Defense Fund document – the only allegation of factual error in the book was in a March 9 e-mail to the faculty by openly homosexual Jones, who wrote:
The anti-gay book Scott Savage endorses (below) falsely claims that “the widely revered father of the ‘sexual revolution’ has been irrefutably exposed as a full-fledged sexual psychopath who encouraged pedophilia.” This is a factually untrue characterization of Dr. Kinsey and his work on every point (including “widely revered father of the ‘sexual revolution”‘). By any scholarly standards, regardless of whether one is more conservative or liberal, this kind of claim is a Jerry-Springer-style anti-factual rabble-rousing that has no place in any university. I am frankly embarrassed for you, Scott, that you would endorse this kind of homophobic tripe.”
“Oh my gosh,” responded Kupelian, “How out-of-touch can you get? Kinsey is universally known to have been a profoundly troubled human being sexually, as any of his several biographies make all too clear. It’s no secret that he circumcised himself with a pocket knife and without anesthesia, he produced and participated in illegal sex movies in his attic, and engaged in bizarre, self-destructive sexual activities far too abhorrent and distasteful to mention here. Furthermore, I think Professor Jones must be the only person on earth who doesn’t know that Kinsey relied on and encouraged serial pedophiles for obtaining his so-called ‘research’ on child sexuality.
“For instance,” Kupelian continued, “‘Table 34’ on page 180 of Kinsey’s ‘Sexual Behavior in the Human Male’ purports to be a scientific record of ‘multiple orgasm in pre-adolescent males’ – which is based on the criminal sexual molestation of children, including infants and toddlers, for the purposes of obtaining ‘data’ for his research.
“How exactly does Professor Jones suppose Kinsey obtained data on the sexual responses of children as young as two months of age? Having such contact with infants and toddlers – under any circumstances whatsoever – is a felony in the United States.
“I mean, even the feature ‘Kinsey’ movie last year starring Liam Neeson, which tried to paint Kinsey as a hero, depicted him collaborating with notorious pedophile Rex King. This is not exactly a big secret.”
