STEP OUT OF LINE AND DISAPPEAR?

Embattled Marquette University political scientist John "Marquette Warrior" McAdams tells the Holy Inquisition he will not recant.
These demands are reminiscent of the Inquisition, in which victims who “confessed” they had been consorting with Satan and spreading heresy would be spared execution.

It is bizarre that [Marquette president Michael] Lovell can invoke Marquette’s “guiding values” to contravene the black letter guarantees of academic freedom embodied in University Statues.
Mr Lovell, in fact, added his own bull to the recommendation from the Diet of Worms faculty committee.
Lovell is downright dishonest in implying that he’s merely implementing the recommendations of the Faculty Hearing Committee. Their report (which is confidential) mentioned nothing about demanding any apology. It only recommended we be suspended without pay for one or two semesters.
Eppur si muove.  Let's say that Marquette's administrative arbitrariness is getting even less favorable press coverage than its underachieving basketball team did.
