SUNY Fredonia in New York has issued a statement announcing that one of its professors, Stephen Kershnar, has been prohibited from having contact with students and will not have a physical presence on campus pending the investigation.

“I am writing to provide you with an update on the mater involving one of our professors interviewed in a widely shared video podcast,” wrote SUNY Fredonia president Stephen H. Kolison.

“We will continue to investigate this situation. In the meantime, effective immediately and until further notice, the professor is being assigned to duties that do not include his physical presence on campus and will not have contact with students while the investigation is ongoing.”

“Please allow me to reiterate my earlier statement that I view the content of the video is absolutely abhorrent. I cannot stress strongly enough that the independent viewpoints of this individual professor are in no way representative of the values of the SUNY Fredonia campus.”

“I appreciate your patience as we make every effort to resolve this matter as expeditiously as possible,” he concluded.

The decision from SUNY Fredonia comes days after the school’s president distanced himself from the professor’s remarks, describing them as “reprehensible.”

As previously reported by The Post Millennial, Kershnar expressed in a Zoom interview that “it wasn’t obvious” that sexual relations between adults and children as young as one are wrong in all cases. The Post Millennial also covered the professor’s defense of slavery and torture as consensual activities.
