(Christian Post) Marquette University has suspended a tenured political science professor after he blogged about his disapproval of the actions of a teaching assistant at the Catholic school, who forbade a student from discussing an opposing view to gay marriage in her class.
Associate Professor John McAdams' suspension with pay comes as Marquette University has begun requiring its faculty to attend anti-harassment training, where they are instructed to report any employee that speaks out in opposition to gay marriage.
In November, McAdams criticized teaching assistant Cheryl Abbate in a blog post because she prevented a student from discussing his opinion on gay rights in her "Theory of Ethics" class. He described in his blog that Abbate told the student after class that any opposition to gay marriage is to be considered offensive speech and will not be tolerated in her class. Abbate then told the student that if he disagreed with her, he could drop the class.
