Indiana legislators asking questions about out-of-control Ball State U

Where one prof was not allowed to teach a course that included discussion of intelligent design but another was, on how science is supposed to destroy religion. (The ol’ tax dollar hard at work as usual.)

Letter of inquiry asks:

“about whether improper procedures were followed while investigating Professor Eric Hedin’s course, and whether an ad hoc committee appointed to investigate him was filled with persons with conflicts of interest…We are also concerned about the cancellation of Hedin’s class and the policy you announced last summer restricting faculty speech on intelligent design. We are disturbed by reports that while you restrict faculty speech on intelligent design, BSU authorized a seminar that teaches ‘Science Must Destroy Religion.’ Your policy banning professors from expressing their views on intelligent designraises many troubling questions. One of the most important is: Does the policy forbid science professors from explaining either their support or rejection of intelligent design in answer to student questions about intelligent design in class?”

    Bring the president of BSU in front of the legilature and have her explain herself. And if that explanation sucks, fire her.

    Didn’t you get the memo? She retired right after this incident with a big fat pension.

    If that is true then her ruling no longer counts and the class should be reinstated and her residence TPed. 😉
