    Then a story like this one should be commonplace, and so not newsworthy.

    So stepping on a piece of paper constitutes a form of insanity in your world. Got it.

    Whoosh, right over your head.

    That, my friend, is the unforgiveable sin.

    Why would you guess that?

    I would say given the propensity of the MSM these days to either not report, or actively bury stories that are either embarrassing, or down right damaging to the socialist progressive movement in the US, and that we usually see a story like this leak out on average once every couple of months, that it is more pervasive than we are told it is...See, the problem is that while you Ditto are usually a pretty moderate voice on some issues, when it comes to education, being employed in the belly of the beast so to speak, your knee jerk reaction to anything like this is to defend it by downplaying it as best you can. But, when you talk to people on the street that have children in collage, or have kids yourself in collage, the stories of absurd assignments, to the utterly weird are all around.

    Because based on what we know, the University sent out a notice of charges to the student listing everything from student code violations, to wearing the wrong socks to class from what I can see, then they came out and apologized for the exercise....Face it, this institution tried to smack this uppity Mormon down, and when the light of day was shinned on their behavior the shrunk like vampires at dawn caught outside.

    In a class of "Intercultural Communications" tell me, what was that exercise supposed to accomplish?

    UH -- communication between individuals with different upbringings. Illustrating the multiplicity of ways that young Americans can view a single object, in this case, a piece of paper with a word written on it.

    Here's what I posted in the Religious Discussions thread on this same topic
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/religi...post1061618265


    I think "childish" sums up the student's behaviour. He was not suspended from the university but from the one class where he may or may not have threatened the professor.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
