Warning! Harsh language alert!

Dontchya just love the phony bullshit that passes for "progressive" and "enlightened" education? I just can't wait to get all the hate e-mails from the Backdoor Conquistadors that read this. I love deleting unread e-mails!

Here's some of the article from The Catholic News Agency; (Emphasis and comments mine) Professor calls student ‘fascist bastard,’ stops speech in favor of traditional marriage

Los Angeles, Calif., Feb 17, 2009 / 11:02 pm (CNA).- A lawsuit has been filed against officials of the Los Angeles Community College District after a professor allegedly censored and threatened to expel a student for his speech about marriage and his Christian faith in a public speaking class.

For his public speaking class under Los Angeles Community College (LACC) Professor John Matteson, Jonathan Lopez spoke on Nov. 24, 2008 about his Christianity. His speech included reading the dictionary definition of marriage and reciting two Bible verses.

Prof. Matteson interrupted Lopez mid-speech, allegedly calling him a “fascist bastard.” He told the other students they could leave if they were offended. When no one left, he dismissed the class. (Oh, I think we see who the [pink] Fascist is.)

The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), which is filing the lawsuit on Lopez’s behalf, made available the evaluation sheet Prof. Matteson gave Lopez. Though giving several high marks, the professor wrote “ask God what your grade is” and “proselytism is inappropriate in public school.”

The ADF alleges school officials did not respond to Lopez’s complaints about censorship and ridicule. (What a suprise.)

One week after Lopez’s speech, after seeing Lopez talk to the college’s dean of academic affairs, Matteson allegedly told Lopez that he would make sure he would be expelled from school.

Matteson reportedly continued to target Lopez’s faith for public ridicule throughout the semester.
Sheesh... this Matteson character is a douche with a capital bag.

Yeah, tolerance and diVEEERRRRRRRRRRsity. Freedom of liberal speech only. You see this is typical butt-plumber behavior. Fascist? Pot meet the kettle.

Harassment and creating a hostile work environment is a violation of Federal Law in the work place. It would seem that the educational world is behind the work place, but not for long.

Typical clarity from someone who thinks only with his little head.
