University Apologizes to Student Who Wouldnít Stomp on Jesus

Posted on March 28, 2013


Florida Atlantic University has finally backed down and apologized after it tried to bring academic charges against a student who filed a complaint when his teacher told students to write Jesusí name on a piece of paper and stomp on it.

Professor Deandre Poole, who is also the vice chairman of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party, told students in his intercultural communications class to stomp on Jesusí name as part of an assignment about cultural symbols. Student Ryan Rotella, who is Mormon, took offense to the classroom assignment and complained to school officials.

The school issued a statement that didnít specifically mention the incident but supported academic freedom and the right of professors to offend. As a result of his complaint, Rotella was suspended from the class.

The story soon went viral and brought a lot of heat to bear on Florida Atlantic, which sort of fake apologized late last Friday but then tried to bring academic charges against Rotella and bar him from all classes.

Funny thing is if he had told them to stomp on Mohammed or any other religious leader the whole world would be in an uproar. We live in troubled times and most people can't see it.

FAU isn't too far from my house. I think I'll drive over and do some stomping myself.

I think I'd plan on walking behind him down a flight of stairs and suddenly use him to catch my balance.
