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".

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.
It doesn't sound like the professor's plan was to have many people actually follow through with stepping on the paper. Evoking an emotion is a good way to start a conversation, as evidenced in this forum many times.

I am assuming most people in the class are, or at least were at some point, Christian, so using Jesus instead of Mohammed or Buddha or whoever would have been the best way to draw out the emotion the professor was looking for.

Fox News obtained a synopsis of the lesson that got Rotela in trouble.

“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.”

The OP was dishonest and only pulled quotes to backup their opinion, not what actually happened.

“Have the students write the name MARTIN LUTHER KING 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.

What do you think the African American community would react? What do you think Rev. Jackson and Rev. Sharpton would say?

It was taken completely out of context. The intention of the professor is explained in the lesson plan, which was that most people wouldn't actually step on the paper because of the symbol that was represented on it.

Again it's too bad that there are so many that don't understand that the lesson is just wrong, but this dipshit professor had to push it. If his intent was to draw emotion then that's exactly what he got.
And whoever suggested that if the name was MLK is right, this would have gone viral.

Because it's apparently not idolatry to worship a piece of paper.

For his safety. The lesson that was intended to provoke an emotional reaction surprisingly provoked an emotional reaction.

The professor is on leave with pay. If you are referring to 'he' as the student, he claims it was because he refused to stomp on the piece of paper, which was the intended purpose of the lesson so I am not sure how valid that is.
