Yep, there's right-wing college suppression of speech too

Andrew Stuttaford reports via The Corner:

A community college instructor in Red Oak claims he was fired after he told his students that the biblical story of Adam and Eve should not be literally interpreted. Steve Bitterman, 60, said officials at Southwestern Community College sided with a handful of students who threatened legal action over his remarks in a western civilization class Tuesday. He said he was fired Thursday... (Link.)

This is obviously no different from the myriad instances of "historically aggrieved" college students (and their other liberal counterparts) who whine and complain about what they perceive as "racist," "sexist," "homophobic" etc., and then try to get a prof axed.

This "handful of students" need to get a friggin' life. They probably belong on a show like this.

I commented on some of this last weekend -- and noted that his position is more or less what my seminary professors had to say about the creation narratives.
