Other than that, what you say on your own time should NOT be a reason to get suspended.
"We are, however, concerned about the increasingly speculative and accusatory nature of these statements by Dr. Jones."
The university added, "BYU remains concerned that Dr. Jones' works on this topic has not been published in appropriate scientific venues."

No explosives, no goverment involvment, all FANATICAL MUSLIM EXTREMISTS.
Is it that tough to accept? I am sick of having to chime in on EVERY thread like this.
Let it go people. The quicker you understand that it is extremist muslims that want you dead, the quicker you can defend yourself when they come to cut your throat.
Case study now closed. Please disperse in an orderly fashion and go home and prepare to defend yourself, and your homeland!

This professor wants to use a class on Islam to express his opinions on 9/11.
I guess some people around here would claim that I would be protected by "freedom of speech" if i were to make statements that some members around here are murderers and child molesters?..... or would they say it is all just slander?...
In the various states, whether by case law or actual legislation, there are generally several "privileges" that can get a defamation case dismissed without proceeding to trial. These include the allegedly defamatory statement being one of opinion rather than fact; or being "fair comment and criticism", as it is important to society that everyone be able to comment on matters of public interest. In addition, it is generally accepted in the United States that a sufficiently public figure is "fair game" for all but the grossest libels.
