'Moral retards' prof steps down from chair

Last week, Owen Courrèges reported on a Brooklyn College professor who called religious people an "ugly, violent lot" and "moral retards." He's resigned his position as chairman-elect of the sociology department:

Yesterday, the college's administration, led by the president, Christoph Kimmich, announced that Mr. Shortell declined the appointment but would be consulting on the future leadership of the department. In his e-mail, Mr. Shortell expressed anger at the treatment he received from some members of his department and at what he called the administration's "inadequate" defense of his academic freedom.
Michelle Malkin puts it best:
Boo hoo.
