Indiana University Condemns Professor’s Views Firing Isn’t An Option

INDIANA UNIVERSITY CONDEMNS PROFESSOR’S ‘VILE’ VIEWS ABOUT GAY MEN, BLACK STUDENTS AND WOMEN, BUT SAYS FIRING ISN’T AN OPTION

Indiana University agreed with critics that a professor’s expressed beliefs raised concerns about his ability to teach a diverse student body. When it came to terminating his employment, though, the university claimed its hands were tied.

“My strong disagreement with his views—indeed, the fact that I find them loathsome—is not a reason for Indiana University to violate the Constitution of the United States,” Lauren Robel, Indiana University Bloomington executive vice president and provost, said in a statement.
