Nor should a professor be penalized for merely expressing information that is a part of a class said professor is teaching. It is my understanding that what he stated was in the context of what the Catholic Church teaches on homosexuality for a class on Catholicism. The interesting thing is that it was not even a student in the class who complained. It was the roommate of a student who read the e-mail and complained. In my opinion that student should have been reprimanded for invading the roommate's privacy.

In a response to a letter that I sent to the University of Illinois board, the new president stated that Dr. Howell had not, in fact, been fired, but had been suspended pending further investigation. Whomever gave the reporter the information either was misinformed, or the president is trying to spin the firing in order to take pressure off the University.
