For the record, the bias against fundamentalists isn't limited to sociology. Among English professors, two-thirds in Yancey's survey said they would penalize religious conservatives were they to seek employment in their department. Clearly, bias against people with religious objections to homosexuality is far greater than bias against homosexuals or any other group that sees itself as a minority based upon sexual proclivities or practices.
It is also clear that the bias against fundamentalists has become more than simple bias. Professors are now admitting, in scientific surveys no less, that they would be willing to actively exclude fundamentalists from the university community. They no longer seek tolerance of homosexuality. They are now adopting the goal of intolerance toward those who refuse to affirm homosexuality. That is something completely different.
Given that professors are now coming out and admitting their desire to penalize fundamentalists, we must do two things: 1) we need to stop any and all campaigns to identify those who refuse to abandon their beliefs and affirm homosexuality. 2) We need to start a campaign to actively combat intolerance of fundamentalists.
My plan is simple. But it will involve printing more t shirts and taking more photographs. That is why I am writing you today. I have printed up t shirts that say "Fundamentalist? Fine by me." I am printing up enough of these t shirts for you and all of your subordinates. I am also offering to send the t shirts to you free of charge. Furthermore, I am also willing to send a photographer to your department if you are interested in having a group picture taken of you and everyone else who is willing to support diversity by wearing one of the shirts. You may also feel free to use the picture in your official promotional materials.
So, are you interested? If so, please email me as soon as you decide and send me t shirt sizes. I'll order the t shirts and then we can get more info on the photo shoot.
Thanks for your consideration.Mike S. Adams
Author’s Final Note: The ECU administrator never responded. It is, therefore, safe to conclude that “diversity” at ECU really means intellectually conformity. And “inclusion” really means excluding those who refuse to conform.
