Stop blaming Mel Gibson. He never denied the Holocaust. His father did. That is his father opinion. Mel Gibson loves his father even if does not agree with his view on the Holocaust. So leave Mel Gibson alone.

i will never, ever leave Mel Gibson alone -- he's committed numerous cinematic sins, ranging from "Lethal Weapon 4" to "The Million Dollar Hotel" to "Air America" to religious snuff pornography.

he also said, "my father has never told me a lie."

Yes, and if you saw the kind of shamefully petty personal and political backstabbing that characterizes departmental "relations" in all too many academic institutions, you'd see why. Tenure, like hiring, is a peer consensus process, and not getting it means you're fired (if you're in a tenure-track position--and if you're not, then good luck paying off your grad school bills).

This isn't the sort of thing anyone's tenure would ever be revoked over, unless perhaps he was preaching it in class (which as an engineering prof, he won't be). There is no one standard national guideline for what warrants revocation of tenure, but most universities use some variant or another of this formula:
Quote:
Professional incompetence, gross neglect of duty, insubordination, conviction of a felony or any offense involving moral turpitude, or sexual harassment or other conduct which falls below minimum standards of professional integrity.
In practice, almost all cases come down to either a severe substance addiction problem (which interferes dramatically with teaching) or a pattern of serious sexual harassment of students.

No chance of students "boycotting" him out of a tenured job, either--that never happens. Students take what they need to take to fulfill their degree requirements and goals, and if he happens to be the resident specialist in their area, or the only prof teaching a particular section at the time slot they need, then they really have no other choice.
