Professor Calls for Gays to be Hung, Loses Job

A business professor at St. Lawrence College in Ontario, Canada recently put up a post on Facebook calling for gay people to be hung, then apparently was surprised when the school called him in and fired him for it. Here’s the Facebook post:

When he was called in by the administration, he said, “I have to get off Facebook for awhile. I’ve been called into work and told to bring a representative re; my comments on FB. Please pray for me and my job.” Guess those prayers didn’t work. You know, maybe if you didn’t advocate genocide, you’d still have your job. He’s now deleted his Facebook page. It’s a little late for that, don’t you think?

    Hahaha. Fantastic.

    Most of the time most of us pedants just let our esteemed host’s little lapses languish, but in this case the differences between gays being “hanged” and being “hung” just sticks out too far to be ignored…

    He didn’t get fired for that. The RCMP/GRC* got him because the posts weren’t in both official languages.

     

    * RCMP in English and GRC in French? That’s not even enough letters! You’re languaging wrongly!

    A xian advocating mass murder?

    Oh that’s right. It’s a core part of their religion.

    A few centuries ago, former Professor Rick Coupland would be leading the latest witch hunt, pogrom, or heresy hunt.

    One of the people torched might have been…me.

    PS I don’t think Rick Coupland is very bright. It’s probably no loss to the business department of St. Lawrence College. The internet doesn’t forget and he will be known as a mass murderer wannabe forever.

    Then again, perhaps I should wait to see how much his GoFundMe account makes. Any xians out there, check you bank balance. Send it all to Mass Murderer wannabe Rick coupland at GoFundme.

    Just more persecution of Christians by Obama!!!

    Rick Coupland: Please pray for me and my job.

    In Fundiespeak, pray for me means Fuck you.

    Sure, I’ll pray for you Rick. Fuck you Rick Coupland.

    Don’t post shit on FB/Youtube/other public spaces if you don’t want to get fired over it. Really close to the #1 rule of the internet.

  • bushrat

    As a business professor, you’d think he’d know more about marketing and PR. Then again St Lawrence College isn’t really known for it’s business department.

    Bushrat “Then again St Lawrence College isn’t really known for it’s business department.”

    Hah! Take that, St Lawrence College!

  • anubisprime

    The ‘like’ tag on his comment for readers to pray for him and his job says it all really….

    ‘No Likes Yet’

    No kidding…guess you are a bigot alone there Rick with a silent P.

    anubisprime, Canadian Facebook doesn’t have Likes. It’s got Apologies. And Lorne Greenes. Canada’s weird.

  • Johnny Vector

    Um, Al Dente? Go back and reread comment #2. Then ponder the fact that Pierce R. Butler won this thread’s internet, leaving Modus to come in a distant second.

    Then again St Lawrence College isn’t really known for it’s business department.

    It is now.

    Welcome to Canada.

    It’s different here.

    I think that would qualify as hate speech and is against the law here. He’s lucky fired is all he got.

  • jaybee

    This is obviously a false flag operation, set up to make Christians and conservatives look bad. How do I know? It is an obvious fact that all college professors are liberal Marxist Socialist Democrats, often of the Fascist Homosexual Communist variety.

  • dingojack

    Ah, but is that ‘False Flag’ to be hanged or hung?

    Enquiring minds — really couldn’t give a shit.

    So when I tell Modus he’s hung like a horse…

  • dingojack

    Ichthyic – you have reminded of the classic graffiti that read:

    Kissinger should be bloody well hung

    underneath some one had added —

    He is my dear, he is – Mrs Kissinger“.

    Shouldn’t that question be “flown or flung”?
