This was an especially egregious case to me because not only is Marquette trying to stunt the free speech of professors in its university – a place where ideas should flow freely, Marquette also betrays its catholic identity. Marquette rallied behind a grad school instructor who basically told an undergrad student who disagreed with her view that “everybody agrees” on “gay rights” that his comments would not be tolerated under the pretext that said comments were homophobic. I encourage anyone who is interested to read the particulars of this incident and read the court’s opinion. not only did the high court reverse the lower court ruling but it found in favor of Professor McAdams by finding specifically that Marquette had violated Professor McAdam’s contractual rights. That is huge. By the way, Marquette is still whining and defending its conduct. Read more here.
