Collectivist Kulturkampf Continues: Stomping on Jesus.

University Takes Action to Punish Student.
A Florida Atlantic University student who filed a complaint against his professor after he was ordered to stomp on the name of Jesus has been brought up on academic charges by the school and may no longer attend class, according to documents obtained by Fox News.
The “Notice of Charges” against Ryan Rotela is contrary to a statement the university released late Friday night saying no one had been disciplined as a result of the classroom activity. . .
Rotela, a devout Mormon, ran afoul of the university after he refused to participate in a classroom assignment that involved writing the name “Jesus” on a piece of paper – and then stomping on it.
The university initially defended the Christ-bashing lesson which is included textbook titled, “Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, 5th Edition.”
Fox News obtained a synopsis of the lesson taught by Deandre Poole, who also happens to be vice chair of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party.
“Have the students write the name JESUS in big letters on a piece of paper,” the lesson reads. “Ask the students to stand up and put the paper on the floor in front of them with the name facing up. Ask the students to think about it for a moment. After a brief period of silence instruct them to step on the paper. Most will hesitate. Ask why they can’t step on the paper. Discuss the importance of symbols in culture.”

This was at a university? It sounds like grade school stuff to me, but then I study science! The textbook must be a piece of s***, excuse me, I meant "work." What would have happened if "Allah" had been substituted for "Jesus"? I think we all know the answer...

So much for turning the other cheek. Will this "professor" do STOMP ON ALLAH next semester?

You could use the US flag, the Globe and Anchor or some other symbol. The point is to get people to viscerally experience that "hesitation." A participant could flatly refuse to step on it and still participate and probably be an important participant in the class. If you link the word on the paper with "Jesus Christ" most won't step on it (or at least hesitate) If you link it with "Jesus Vega the illegal immigrant who mugged your neighbor" Many will stomp it. That's the whole point! Meaning of symbols. BTW the exercise came out of Christian Seminary...

The Christian students should abduct Prof. AHOLE and dispose of him in a local swamp full of aligators....then report his suicide utterances to the school admin.

I would have written the teachers name on the paper ...or asked the teacher what his parents names were and wrote them on the paper.

Stupid, stupid assignment.

The jerk is probably tenured.

It appears that they need to consult Pastor Terry Jones on curriculum development. I suggest that as an alternative that they publicly burn a Koran and then compel the students to stomp on that burning book, all for academic credit. Be sure to call your local news outlet to cover the educational experience and the aftermath. I am sure that much will be learned.
