Mirecki's V-C had a history of folding

The Vice-Chancellor of Kansas University, Paul Hemenway, had a history of folding to religious pressure, reports Bartholomew's notes of religion. A previous freethinker was fired after 21 years for objecting to the Medical Center supporting religious and faith-healing "treatments". Things look very suspect at Kansas.

I'm going to go out on a limb here, in a Bayesian sort of way: No matter how unlikely Mirecki's assault may seem, it is far less incredible than the documented anti-skeptical attitudes of KU and the locals.
