WATCH – COLLEGE STUDENT SUSPENDED AFTER REFUSING PROFESSOR’S DEMAND TO STOMP ON JESUS SIGN

 

I suspect that if this matter had been connected to an image of the word Mohamed and Muslim students, either there would have been all hell to pay or at the very least it would not have resulted the student being suspended, but rather the Professor !

Ryan Rotela, a junior at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), is waging a bizarre allegation against his professor, Dr. Deandre Poole.

The student is claiming that he’s been suspended from his intercultural communications class for refusing to write “JESUS” on a sheet of paper, throw it on the floor and then stomp on it — a request that the instructor apparently made.

If you’re already scratching your head, you’re not alone. The curious claim caught the attention of WPEC-TV, a South Florida CBS affiliate.

Rotela, a devout Mormon, says he refused to participate in the purported activity and told Poole that he found the request offensive.

“Anytime you stomp on something it shows that you believe that something has no value. So if you were to stomp on the word Jesus, it says that the word has no value,” Rotela told WPEC-TV.

But the situation purportedly became even more contentious a few days after the alleged paper incident occurred. After Rotela went to his professor’s supervisor to complain, he claims he was suspended from the class.

According to WPEC, here’s how the school responded to an inquiry about the situation:

Faculty and students at academic institutions pursue knowledge and engage in open discourse. While at times the topics discussed may be sensitive, a university environment is a venue for such dialogue and debate.

    The school did not merely “Discuss” stomping on a sheet of paper with the holy name of Jesus on it. They wanted a student to physically do so. THAT is where they crossed the line between Church and State, The school violated the students constitutional rights and should suffer consequences in the form of legal judgement for damages.
