Professor and former University of Kansas Religious Studies head Paul Mirecki, now says that he was forced from his position by the university and has retained a lawyer:
"The University penalized me and denied me my constitutionally protected right to speak and express my mind."
The university's position is somewhat different, claiming that his consitutional rights were not violated and that the university stood by them. Mirecki also claims that the men who attacked him referred to the course he was planning to teach, which was to be called "Special Topics in Religion: Intelligent Design, Creationism and other Religious Mythologies."
