Freedom of speech is a constitutional right everywhere in America, except – evidently – on college campuses. The University of Illinois has sacked Ken Howell, an adjunct professor who taught courses on Catholicism because one of his students accused him of hate speech. Professor Howell’s crime: He admitted that he personally agrees with the Catholic Church’s teaching that homosexual sex is immoral.
Beware: When expressing a personal moral conviction becomes “hate speech,” we have fully fallen off the ledge into the abyss of a “Brave New World” where the thought police judge intent over action. Wo be unto the people who cower under the boot of such tyranny!
“God, help us!”
