2 & 3. The stories vary on this point. Some of have stated the student left the class room after making threats toward the professor. We don't know for sure, as we have only Rotela's version of the story, although we do have the fact that disciplinary charges were laid against him.
5. HOW did this story get national attention? Who went to the media over a school matter?
7. You are showing a refusal to comprehend the object of the lesson. A lesson which had been taught in the past without "media attention", it is out of the textbook for the course - this would indicate that said exercise has been used at other universities using the same text. I provided a link earlier to an interview with a graduate of FAU who had taken the class last year. She noted that no one was forced to step on the piece of paper. She also said that she thought Rotela was "being rather childish". Just what have liberals been caught doing "red handed"? Forcing Christians to desecrate their God? or forcing students to think about why they would find a certain action offensive and 'forcing' them to explain their feelings.
Lastly, Somerville has only one 'M'
Ooooh, do you think that was meant as a double entendre?[/QUOTE]
