    After reading this synopsis and looking at the social media response to this class on symbolism, two things come to mind:
    1. See it really was a teaching moment.
    2. Irony.

    They didn't really stomp on Jesus.
    The idea is that some would - some wouldn't . .. that's how you have a discussion - contrasting views and feelings on the issue.

    Meanwhile, like I say, professors can't "suspend" college students, so somebody floated a fake story (probably the obstreperous student).

    In any case, the exercise made its point. Some people (conservatives and fundies) think a name on a piece of paper is person -- how does one explain that level of delusion?
    No one gets "suspended" in college - they're just "not welcome" in particular classes.... We're talking college here not High School.

    It's more like being banned - well it is being banned from taking a particular "class." of course you can take the class/course again just with a different "professor/teacher."

    You can get academic suspension for a variety of reasons College, too - Suspension is the process in which participation in class or access to certain facilities / registration / etc - is limited irregardless of it's negative impact on your grades. Being suspended would result in all missed tests and assignments from that time not being made up at a later date, perhaps - etc.

    I'm not convinced you know what adult behavior actually is.
    That or you really have nothing to show. I'd place my bets on the latter.

    I got banned from a sociology course - well, the classroom. I passed the course, I just wasn't welcome in the damn room.. He didn't like it when I called him a monkey just to get a reaction then write a paper about it to prove his theory of tolerance was epic bull****...

    Fire the teacher if he did not have enough common sense to realize this would really upset people he should not be a professor , understand symbolism and all but could he have chosen something else or maybe just put the word god since there are many religions with gods if it wasn't a particular one a student may realize something about themselves, than bye just using a very particular religion .

    He banned you - the school could have pushed it further and suspended you if they wanted. I don't see why you're debating this. Your attempt to sound like some type of superior intellect by insulting your professor didn't work, by the way.

    I probably am a superior intellect, my professor just couldn't accept that.

    Anyone who preaches tolerance and gets flustered by a comment or idea is not very tolerant... So yeah, I have more intelligence and tolerance in my finger than most of my progressive professors have/had.

    The funny part is I may appear to be the arrogant one here, but I'm not the one contradicting ideas - my professor was the one doing that in arrogant fashion - I just called him out on his BS...

    All I have to say is; don't quack at a duck..

    According to your own version of the event, the teacher didn't get flustered at a comment or an idea. It was your intolerant name-calling

    So - now you're irritated with his irritation over your irritation and he's the only one who's intolerant?



    Yeah - preach that intolerance speech, again.
