Steven Jones Placed on Leave
You know he had it coming. BYU cites concern about "the increasingly speculative and accusatory nature of these statements by Dr. Jones." Well yeah. If I were BYU, I'd be very concerned about a publicity hound like that bringing all of this negative attention to the school. It's one thing to come up with some crazy theories. It's another thing entirely to run around claiming that all kinds of government officials have been behind it and parrot the taglines of the looney left.
The questions now is if Dr. Jones is going to realize that he's going off the deep end or if he'll play the part of a martyr. I fear the latter is most likely.
