MARQUETTE UNIVERSITY WILL FIRE POLITICAL SCIENCE PROFESSOR JOHN MCADAMS FOR BEING CONSERVATIVE.
Stand up for John McAdams—a courageous and beleaguered professor at Marquette University—and demand that Marquette’s leftist administrators back down.
Marquette announced it will fire political science professor John McAdams unless he apologizes for defending a student who was told by an instructor to drop her class because he said that there are two sides to the same-sex marriage debate.
In a November 2014 blog post, McAdams exposed leftist instructor Cheryl Abbate for telling a conservative student to drop her class. The student’s “sin”? Saying that the instructor’s philosophy students deserved to hear both sides of the same-sex marriage debate.
Marquette bureaucrats then suspended McAdams, and he has since remained suspended. Then, on March 26 of this year, Marquette said McAdams’ suspension will continue without pay for the rest of the year, and that he will be fired unless he essentially begs for forgiveness, says he was “reckless and incompatible,” and expresses “deep regret for the harm suffered” by the instructor, who has since moved on to a tenured position at another university.
This is totalitarian, and it’s a recurring leftist tactic of administrators, whose goal is to silence conservative students and faculty.
SHOW SUPPORT FOR Prof. John McAdams. Tell Marquette to drop its threat and to reinstate Professor McAdams.
