Professor told students to stomp on paper with Jesus's name on it

A Florida Atlantic University student said he was suspended from class after he refused a professor’s directive to stomp on a piece of paper with the word “Jesus” written on it.

“I’m not going to be sitting in a class having my religious rights desecrated,” student Ryan Rotela told television station WPEC. “I truly see this as I’m being punished.”

Rotela, who is a devout Mormon, said the instructor in his Intercultural Communications class told the students to write the name “Jesus” on a sheet of paper. Then, they were told to put the paper on the floor.

“He had us all stand up and he said ‘Stomp on it,’” Rotela said. “I picked up the paper from the floor and put it right back on the table.

The young college student told the instructor, Deandre Poole, that the assignment was insulting and offensive.

“I said to the professor, ‘With all due respect to your authority as a professor, I do not believe what you told us to do was appropriate,’” Rotela said. ‘I believe it was unprofessional and I was deeply offended by what you told me to do...’”

I wonder what the media reaction will be, if the word is not "Jesus" but "Mohammed".

Wonder what would happen if a prof told students to do that to Martin Luther King's photo.

Good for the Student. Blindly following authority is not a good thing. I wonder what the landscaping supervisor did to piss off the professor?

Isn't this a couple of weeks old? I think the professor might have even been fired.

I did read today though, that a professor at that same university is blogging that the Boston Bombing was fake. And it's the same guy that said Newtown was faked.

Just like the gun shirt story, there's always more to it than what these shitty reporters tell. It's unbelievable the amount of shit stories there are. It's frustrating.

People aren't suspended from a college course for refusing to step on a piece of paper with Jesus on it.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - The Florida Atlantic University professor accused of having students write the name "Jesus" in large letters on a piece of paper put it on the floor and step on it, is speaking out about the controversy.

Dr. Deandre Poole told insiderhighered.com , "I was doing my job." He said he was following directions from the instructor's guide.

He also disputes the notion that he told students to 'stomp on Jesus.'

In the article he said he only asked people to step on the paper and that only one student had an objection.

Professor Poole is "very religious" and that "Jesus is my lord and savior, it's how I identify myself as a Christian."

He told insidehighered.com that the he expected students to pause before stepping on the paper, with their discomfort setting off a discussion.

He says he has received hate mail and death threats and that people have called for his firing. "And it's all for doing my job. I was doing my job."
FAU put Poole on administrative leave for his safety.

Is it not possible to set off the discussion in any other way?

I'm not very religious. I'm not a professor. But I'll bet I could guide students to a discussion of whatever it was supposed to be by.... you know.... ASKING THEM TO HAVE A DISCUSSION.

Lots of students just want to sit through class and be done with it.

I'm guessing Florida Atlantic University is for high school grads who want to do even less work than going to a community college.

Some professors / any professional know how to engage students of all ages in a discussion. I've never needed a trick to get people to talk. Just have to have a great capacity for friendship.

Sounds like there isn't more to the story.
