College furious after non-woke professor reinstated

In 2014, students and colleagues at Moreno Valley College claimed Professor Eric Thompson was harming students by suggesting same-sex attraction might stem from environmental factors rather than from biology.

Moreno Valley, part of the Riverside community college district, is located in the city of the same name.

Brad Dacus of the California-based Pacific Justice Institute say Thompson taught a sociology course which makes his observations relevant and appropriate.


The professor has also twice received a “Faculty of the Year Award” that comes from a student vote but the college called his classroom actions “dangerous” and “immoral.”

“This college told [Taylor] there's only one perspective that you can teach,” Dacus says, “and because of that, he was fired."

After a suspension in 2016 and a firing in 2017, Thompson was represented by PJI attorney Michael Peffer in 2018 during arbitration. The arbitration ruled in favor of the professor but the college objected, and now a superior court judge has upheld the arbitrator’s decision to reinstate him.

According to Dacus, however, the college wants to keep Thompson off its faculty and is challenging the judge’s ruling.
