BYU tries to protect its reputation

Physics professor Steven Jones, one of the so-called "9/11 Scholars for Truth" has been placed on paid leave, pending an official investigation.

I blogged about this last fall. I'm kind of ambivalent about it; if he wants to make an ass of himself, he should be free to do so. However, I can understand why BYU wanted to protect its good name. The members of this group are about as moonbatty as you can get; John Birchers have a better grasp on reality than they do. Any university that lets itself be associated with them will come out looking bad.

It just goes to show you that BYU isn't immune to crack-pots who think that because they teach at a church educational institution means that people (and members of the LDS church) should listen to them. "You can trust me. I teach at BYU."
