    Just to give the supporters of what this crazy fool professor did - It violates "Separation of Church and State (which doesn't even exist)" ohhhh and I could go further than that with the constitution -"Equal Protection Clause??"

    The same "constitutional liberties" that homosexuals use to apply their arguments can be used here.

    so maybe you should do your homework first.

    there is no evidence ANYONE was forced to stomp on the piece of paper under duress

    maybe you do .... but you have demonstrated that you like to go off on a rant over what you imagine to be the case ....

    Well the young man in question that refused to stomp on Jesus was kicked out of the class so I would call that "duress."

    I'm not going off on a rant - you're the one ranting about how I'm some sort of evangelical....

    You said this is a First Amendment issue and I call BS because I know the Constitution - it is really that simple.

    in saying that, it is clear that you haven't done much reading on this ....

    Florida Atlantic University has maintained for a week now that no student was suspended for refusing to participate in an exercise in which students were told to write "Jesus" on a piece of paper and to stand on it. And for a week now, the lawyer for one student has been saying that the university suspended his client for objecting to the lesson. Florida's governor and numerous other politicians have also joined the discussion, denouncing the lesson that was used, and demanding to know why the student was suspended.

    But the president of the faculty union at Florida Atlantic asserted in an interview with Inside Higher Ed Thursday that the university has neglected to explain that the student faced charges for making a threat against the instructor. Chris Robé, the head of the faculty union, said he has spoken to the instructor, Deandre Poole.

    Robé -- who did not name the student -- said that Poole has been ordered by the university not to talk to any reporters, and is thus unable to defend himself, even as he has been widely criticized as anti-Christian (among other things). Poole is non-tenure-track, working on a one-year contract. Conservative activists are calling for him to be fired.

    "He's been under a gag order, and the story has been framed all wrong," Robé said.

    The reason the student faced charges, Robé said, was that "the instructor was verbally threatened," not because the student objected to the Jesus exercise. "He faced a hearing over that."

    I think the issue is that you are going into the crazy knee jerking dance so common among some reactionary types ... regardless of race, creed or nationality ....

    Had this been a teacher that told a student to draw Muhammad there would be progressive marches and bomb threats to the school and the teacher in question would have been fired immediately given the progressive outcry.....

    No, but it was draw (er WRITE JESUS) Jesus and stomp on Jesus day and that is perfectly fine... Of course those that do and who are upset are somehow radicals?

    Yeah OK...

    I know the story, know the US Constitution (like the back of my hand) and am a staunch libertarian... Ok

    Do you know what the word "reactionary" means?

    If it matters I just think it's funny you're trying to defend this alleged teacher (who isn't worthy of "professor.")

    You have no basis of defense for such a turd.... All you have is your opinion.
