MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court says Marquette University shouldn't have fired a conservative professor over his blog post criticizing a student instructor he believed shut down discussion about opposition to gay marriage

The ruling Friday sides with former professor John McAdams. It concludes Marquette breached its contract with him guaranteeing academic freedom. The court says McAdams should immediately be reinstated in his same position, his tenured status retained and given back pay for the three years he missed.

McAdams sued the private Catholic school in 2016, arguing that he lost his job for exercising freedom of speech.

Part of that political orthodoxy thing again, as in the article where the Russian rightly compared Silicon Valley to the Soviet Union.

If you want to keep your job, you apparently do not have the right to oppose gay marriage, even in a Catholic University, even in Wisconsin.

This gives hope that freedom of speech is not completely dead yet.

Next step would be to garnish wages of bureaucrat who decided to fire this professor, so that school endowment would not suffer and tuition would not need to be raised in order to pay lawyers fees and penalties.

Catholicism is off the Liberal wheels with this interloper Pope.
He makes me proud to be Baptist.

My guess is the Church can't stop Pedophiling and their Gay predation so they are leaving the Conservatives behind and embracing the Left where deviancy is normal.
