A principal and his wife have been sacked from a college whose stated aim is to promote multiculturalism because they are white Christians, they claim.
Professor Malory Nye, 47, says he was dismissed from the Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education in Dundee, Scotland, because his race and religion were seen by his superiors as a threat to its core Muslim values.
He says the college’s claims to pursuing multicultural values were a charade and that he was dismissed so he could be replaced by a Muslim.
His wife Isabel Campbell-Nye, 42, alleges she was forced from her position as head of the English language centre because she attracted too many students who were not Muslims or Arabs.

Religion and Race, two things created by man to keep man divided. Seems to be working well.

Given that this is Scotland i wouldn't even hazard a guess as to what the population percentages are but I''ll guess a lot more people there are worried about Catholic vs Church of England
Is this a Murdoch Paper?

"Professor Nye was dismissed from his post as principal at the College following a period of suspension on full pay and an inquiry conducted by the College Chancellor."

I'm betting he wasn't put on suspension and investigated for being a white Christian.

Shouldn't a private school be allowed to choose its faculty and determine its level of "diversity?"

OR do the "small government" conservatives desire government intervention on their behalf again?

Michael probably had a ball with this topic on his show. I do not listen anymore. I am tired of his antics.
