Florida professor reprimanded for comparing priest to toilet

Florida professor reprimanded for comparing priest to toilet October 30, 2013

You remember this incident from last week.

The Catholic League has the following update:

The University of South Florida contacted Bill Donohue today about the incident involving Dr. Timothy Weil. Weil had compared priests to feces at a recent academic forum; to read the background about this issue, click here.

Donohue received a letter from Dr. Julianne Serovich, Dean and Professor, College of Behavioral & Community Sciences, wherein she stated that Weil received a “Letter of Counsel.” She also said he would be issuing an apology. Donohue had not sought his removal; rather, he asked for a reprimand.

Here is Donohue’s response:

Dear Dr. Serovich:

Thank you for your letter regarding my complaint against Dr. Timothy Weil. Your response is judicious. I consider this matter closed.

Sincerely,

William A. Donohue, Ph.D.
President
