regarding its actions (re: firing the teacher because he said what the Church's teaching were about homosexuality), and received this reply today:

Quote:
Thank you for your message regarding the Department of Religion. The University is dedicated to providing our students the best education possible, and academic decisions are designed to ensure that goal is achieved. Academic freedom is at the core of our teaching and research missions, and for that reason the chancellor of the campus has requested additional and expedited review of the facts and applicable policies and principles. Pending that review, no final decision will be made regarding an instructor for the Catholic Studies course.

Warm regards,

Robin Kaler
Associate Chancellor for Public Affairs

"Warm regards"?????

Ewww. Whatever happened to the closings used by adult professionals in formal business communications, such as "Very truly yours"?

But if they said "Sincerely," they'd have to be sincere. By saying "Warm regards," they are saying they have a warm, fuzzy feeling about what they did, not that they are in any way sincere.
