Florida college student suspended for not ‘stomping on Jesus’Submitted by ecard71 on Sat, 03/23/2013 - 04:37
"A Florida Atlantic University student is accusing an instructor and local Democratic party leader of suspending him for refusing to stomp on a piece of paper with the word “Jesus” written on it.
Mediaite reported on Friday that junior Ryan Rotela said he has been barred from returning to his intercultural communications class after complaining about an exercise assigned by his professor, Deandre Poole, three weeks ago.
“I said to the professor, ‘With all due respect to your authority as a professor, I just do not believe what you told us to do was appropriate, I believe it was unprofessional, and I was deeply offended by what you told me to do.’” Rotela told WPEC-TV.
Rotela, who identifies himself as a Mormon, said that he put the paper back on his desk instead of stomping on it.
“Any time you stomp on something, it shows that you believe that something has no value,” he said. “If you were to stomp on the word ‘Jesus,’ it says that the word has no value.”"
