    well, so much for "Mormons aren't real Christians."
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Did I not say he was flustered? "flustered" wouldn't even be the right word to describe his reaction - that would be more like "pissed off."

    IMO, I figured he would say; "nice try" considering what was being discussed was "tolerance." I just gave him a lil poke and he went off.... I implied he was a monkey, maybe the joke was on me given his outburst? I got banned tho. I finished the class with flying colors, despite not being allowed in the room... I got my assignments via third-party....

    He wasn't such a bad guy.... I don't even know what his politics were ... Outside of the fact I called him a monkey and he threw me out of his room we got along afterwords.... He was shocked I didn't drop his class. He certainly wasn't biased on grades - at least with me - he just booted my ass out of his classroom.

    Whatever, it was funny - difficult at the time but more emphasis on funny.

    Conprehension much?

    I did not say that he didnt get flustered. What I said was that he didnt get flustered by a comment or an idea, as you dishonestly mischaracterized your insult as

    If it matters - Muhammad (one could spell the name any-which-way they want) is a Jesus figure to Muslims.... The war is about that - well the radicals war.... Same God but different strokes for different folks..

    Oh he got "flustered by my comment."

    I was there so I know....

    I don't know what his boggle was considering when I said what I said the discussion was about tolerance.....

    He was super pissed - I just don't know what his intent was...

    Rotela was apparently found to be in violation of FAU's civility code. If the professor thinks the student has violated the civility code, he is, de facto, suspended from that class until a resolution is reached. The process begins at the instructor level and can move up from that.

    From NBC:

    His lawyer Hiram Sasser shared the notice of charges that Rotela received from FAU for violating the student code of conduct.

    "You are requested to attend a Student Conduct Conference," the notice read.
    "In the interim, you may not attend class (SPC 3710) or contact any of the students involved in this matter – verbally or electronically – or by any other means," the notice stated.

    Yeah - preach that intolerance speech, again.
    I don't care about any of it - but if people have questions or opinions I will certainly answer them.

    I'm sorry I even shared that story or that part of my life....

    Sorry for being human....

    I'm glad the scumbag non-tenured professor got slapped down. I'm also quite disappointed that only one student had the juevos to refuse.

    There you go - your professor is just human, too.

    Reading comprehension much? I said I'd step on any piece of paper. I can tell the difference between paper and things. Apparently this fundie (like muslim fundies) can't.
