ABSTRACT
The article discusses how Catholic professor Ken Howell was fired from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign after speaking about homosexuality. It says that Howell knew homosexuality would be a contentious issue for his students, which is a defining moral issue of the time for them. The author adds that Howell's firing is just one of the cases in which faculty or students on college campuses have been punished for expressing or holding views about homosexuality. Howell's stance on homosexual acts and same-sex marriage are also discussed.
