Professor Escorted Off Campus for Ridiculing Play About Diversity and Inclusion

Professor Escorted Off Campus for Ridiculing Play About Diversity and Inclusion

“You’re supposed to be adults here”

The professor is an Orthodox priest and he obviously has a better sense of humor than the progressive inquisition.

The College Fix reports:

Physiology instructor booted from chiropractic college after ridiculing diversity

This summer, it took a priest to get a small chiropractic and health sciences college out of joint.

On August 8, adjunct professor Steven Salaris was escorted off Logan University near St. Louis, Mo. At the time, Salaris, 54, said he was unsure what he had done to earn his forcible removal from the private campus with just a week to go before his students took their final exams for a summer school course.

Was it the joke he made in class about sex being a good cure for a headache, a campus diversity play he criticized on Twitter, the fact that he is a white male? If you ask Salaris, he’ll tell you it might have been a combination of all of the above.

The problems for Salaris, an Orthodox Christian priest, began earlier in the year when two female students told him some students were uncomfortable with a few jokes he had made in physiology class…

“It was meant to be humorous – a joke,” Salaris told The College Fix via phone.

“You’re supposed to be adults here,” Salaris said he had told his students…

When the Student Affairs office got wind that Salaris had made this comment to several friends (he said he was joking), he said he was once again called to Ignatov’s office. Salaris said when he refused to confirm or deny he had said it, Ignatov told him his contract would not be renewed in the fall. Salaris said he already knew the decision had been made to replace him, although Ignatov would not confirm it.

Yet in August, Salaris found himself being escorted off campus by a security guard after he ridiculed a campus play that the administration advertised to students as an “interactive presentation that shares thought provoking values of both diversity and inclusion.” The play, “The Defamation Experience,” was meant to broaden students’ “views and interactions with others, exploring how race, religion, class, and gender intersect and clash.”

Comments

Apparently, he has been living in a bubble about the current campus climate for dissent.

I feel so sorry for the kids; the poor snowflakes will be completely unprepared for life after college.

Can you imagine if we had this generation of young adults in 1941 when it was time to fight WW2?

Diversity (i.e. color judgments) and exclusion.

Some chiropractors offer prostate massages as part of their practice even to those that have no such organ.
