Professor who defended pedophilia no longer interacting with students


Excerpt from The Washington Examiner:

A philosophy professor at the State University of New York at Fredonia has been temporarily relieved of his duties, according to the university president.

Stephen Kershnar was sent away from campus to limit his interactions with students.

President Stephen Kolison Jr. made the announcement Thursday, two days after he cited a video where the professor claimed it wasn’t obvious to him that adult-child sex “is in fact wrong.”

Kershnar will remain off campus until the president’s office has finished investigating the matter.

“Please allow me to reiterate my earlier statement that I view the content of the video as absolutely abhorrent,” Kolison Jr. wrote. “I cannot stress strongly enough that the independent viewpoints of this individual professor are in no way representative of the values of the SUNY Fredonia campus.”
