Dr. Jonathan Katz is an Associate Professor of Global Gender and Sexuality Studies at the University of Buffalo. According to his university biography, Katz’s positions deal with the “intersections of art history and queer history.”
In a 2016 article, Professor Katz blamed conservatives for the Pulse Nightclub shooting that claimed 49 lives. He wrote, “What we are trying to do here is camouflage the root of the problem, which is a long history of violent political rhetoric and homophobic policies by Republican officials and their conservative allies.”
Rather than Islamic Terrorism, he argued that anti-gay bigotry from the Christian right is a greater threat than ISIS.
Katz had previously referred to The Catholic League, the nation’s largest Catholic civil rights organization, as “the American Taliban.”
