    Yeah - there aren't enough facts to form an opinion. Just what did he do and how did he complain?

    I'm sure he's not the only student to ever not participate in the history of doing this so there's obviously something more to it.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    That's fair I suppose.

    You're making an assumption that because this was done by one teacher it's a common thing. This is the first time I've ever heard of this. If you had millions of college kids every year having to do this, you'd be hearing about it before now.
    How many similar individual stories like this do we have to see before we admit that there is a leftist bent in our education system that is hurting education by inducing political ideology into learning?

    I think it's a stupid procedure if this actually happened, and if she was trying to make a point she could have very easily made the point with something else besides someone's religion included, but you are over reacting and jumping to conclusions without all the facts. Not to mention you are acting like this is a common occurrence. It's not.
    It is not a matter of "if" it happened. The University already apologized for the exercise, so it happened.

    I think it's the University playing the part of adult and putting the matter to rest.

    Thismorning I felt a random lady cut me off in a buisy airport...I polightly '"oops sorry" and the earth spun on. That's what the university is doing here.

    Are we sure it is "one idiot"? or is it a culture in education that views institutions of higher learning as a way to politically mold the individual above actually providing fields of learning? Also, I think the term "anti education" is toxic to actual conversation in this. That is a horrible label that uses a broad brush to paint those seeking to take the teachers personal politics out of the classroom, as someone who is against education. That is wrong.

    You have got to be kidding here....What the heck is going on in these classrooms of supposed "higher education"?



    How typical. Marxist educrats playing semantic games with the story to deflect, and distort their reprehensible actions thus far....



    wow, what a little Nazi authoritarian this educrat view themselves as....Let's see, Marxist teacher wants to make a point about their own beliefs in atheism, So he/she devises a participatory exercise in making people do something that some may find wrong, even shocking, and when confronted by a student that refuses to participate in that exercise, Marxist teacher goes after the dissenter in true Alinsky fashion....

    I don't know why anyone pays for this **** anymore....

    Thoughts....
    What is misleading about the headline? How is that "taking the side of the university"?

    The plural of anecdote is not data. They don't report on the millions of students who aren't given ridiculous things like this to do.

    Maybe, maybe not. I wasn't there, so I don't know. Or maybe the University knows that continuing to persecute this student for simply refusing to blaspheme his own religious beliefs is not a good fight to continue either in practical, or PR terms for the university....If that is the case I sure hope they have at least a good conference with the teacher involved and tell her to back off that type of volatile imagery based teaching.

    I am glad that you consider the lesson in this case ridiculous...However, the anecdotal may not be conclusive, I don't think it is arguable that our education system at the university level is dominated by leftist on the political spectrum, and if no studies exist researching the effects of political ideology forced upon the curriculum then maybe there needs to be...I won't hold my breath though, it would be like asking someone to admit what they are doing is underhanded, and wrong.

    We agree on this. It was the only honest headline they could have used.

    Sorry but considering how many classrooms there are in countless colleges across the country, I'm not seeing nearly enough incidences for me t claim that there is some huge leftist lean being taught in our college classrooms. If you're just trying to point out that many professors are more liberal than the population as a whole, yes that's probably true, but that doesn't mean that the kids are getting a lousy or biased education out of it.

    Maybe I just read it with a biased eye....However, I thought the use of the word "Claims" lent an air that the student was lying here.
