No Surprise There

GOP and the City asks:
What do you do with a college professor who describes religious devout as "moral retards" and who publicly claims that religion is "sanctimonious nonsense"? At Brooklyn College you would promote them to the head of the Sociology department, despite outrage caused by the professor's comments. Professor Timothy Shortell's promotion to chairman of the sociology department has many students upset. A college spokesperson stated there was nothing the school could do as the promotion was the result of an election inside his department.
Didn't you know? Religious bigotry is a prerequisite to advancement in academia. See also NY Daily News: Top prof sparks outrage
