Eugene Volokh has a post on a multicultural problem: Public University Professor Being Investigated for Condemning Homosexuality in Class.

He quotes a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review story:

“An Indiana University of Pennsylvania graduate student has filed a complaint with the school’s human resources department, alleging one of her business professors subjected her to humiliation and insults based on her sexuality....

Santiago said the class, instructed by faculty member Dr. Maali Ashamalla, was discussing ethics and legalities. She said a male student said he thought gender reassignment surgery was unethical and should be illegal.

Ashamalla agreed, and called homosexuality ‘a sin’ and ‘unnatural,’ Santiago said.

‘I asked her, ‘So are you saying that students like me who identify as homosexual are unnatural, abnormal and disgusting?’ She replied, ‘Yes,’’ Santiago said....

University spokeswoman Michelle Fryling confirmed that the school’s human resources department had launched an investigation....”[ IUP business professor accused of humiliating student, By Mary Pickels, October 21, 2011]

There’s also a student newspaper story: Rally held speaking against hate, for tolerance, By Ida Arici, The Penn, October 14, 2011. (Note that the confusingly named Indiana University Of Pennsylvania is in the Borough of Indiana in the State of Pennsylvania.)

It’s obvious that Dr Maali Ashamalla is from some foreign country, and some strange religion where gays have not been victorious in controlling the culture, and banning any sentiment disapproving of gayness from the press, the academy, the workplace, and the medical profession.

For purposes of this post, it doesn’t matter whether Dr. Ashamalla is a Muslim, a Hindu, or a member of a Christian minority in her native land, just that she hasn’t been part of the Great Reeducation of the last fifty years on this subject.

Well, that’s what you get if you import foreign professors to teach ethics, isn’t? Foreign ethics.

 (I know they’re not really that foreign—Pat Buchanan, refusing to accept the Great Reeducation, has said the same thing, and many Americans agree with him. However, there’s no danger of Pat Buchanan being hired by a university.)

Anyhow, here’s a partial list of the names of the professors in the MBA program at IUP, leaving out the people with names like Ames and Rodgers. This list is about 50 percent of the department’s names.

  • Dr. Krish Krishnan (Director, MBA Program)
  • [Email him—ask him about his hiring policies.]
  • Dr. Monsurur Rahman
  • Dr. Sekar Anatharaman
  • Dr. Ibrahim Affaneh
  • Dr. Mukesh Chaudhry
  • Dr. Abbas Ali
  • Dr. Hussam Al-Shammari
  • Dr. Prashanth Bharadwaj
  • Dr. Amin Mohamed
  • Dr. Ramesh Soni
  • Dr. Madan Batra
  • Dr. Parimal Bhagat
  • Dr. Framarz Byramjee
  • Dr. Rajendar Garg
  • Dr. Varinder Sharma
  • Dr. Mohamed Albohali
  • Dr. Linwu Gu
  • Dr. Ata Nahouraii
  • Dr. Pankaj Pankaj
  • Dr. Jianfeng Wang
  • Dr. Kustim Wibowo

Perhaps the MBA department staff could be asked to sign some kind of loyalty oath saying they approve of homosexuality and love Big Brother. I don’t think that’s a good thing, but in this case it could free up some jobs to be taken by Americans.
