Catholic professor reinstated by University of Illinois


WASHINGTON — A Catholic professor barred from teaching courses on Catholicism after he defended in class the Church's teaching on homosexual behavior has been reinstated by the University of Illinois.

Kenneth Howell, an adjunct professor in the university's religious studies department, learned of the decision July 29. He did not return phone calls from Catholic News Service seeking comment.

The reinstatement came days after a deadline for suing the university set by the Alliance Defense Fund, which had taken on Howell's case.
