Professor told students to stomp on paper with Jesus's name on it

A Florida Atlantic University student said he was suspended from class after he refused a professor’s directive to stomp on a piece of paper with the word “Jesus” written on it.

“I’m not going to be sitting in a class having my religious rights desecrated,” student Ryan Rotela told television station WPEC. “I truly see this as I’m being punished.”

Rotela, who is a devout Mormon, said the instructor in his Intercultural Communications class told the students to write the name “Jesus” on a sheet of paper. Then, they were told to put the paper on the floor.

“He had us all stand up and he said ‘Stomp on it,’” Rotela said. “I picked up the paper from the floor and put it right back on the table.

The young college student told the instructor, Deandre Poole, that the assignment was insulting and offensive.

“I said to the professor, ‘With all due respect to your authority as a professor, I do not believe what you told us to do was appropriate,’” Rotela said. ‘I believe it was unprofessional and I was deeply offended by what you told me to do...’”

I wonder what the media reaction will be, if the word is not "Jesus" but "Mohammed".

People without talent often try to make up for it by being shocking/outrageous. Reality television is making it's way into classrooms...not that surprising, really.

Socratic method - you don't give them the option.

You don't generally see it put to practice until post-graduate work, but when they do, By God it's effective.

My Con-Law professor was the Dean at MU's Law School and he would set entire rows on blast and just roar through you. You'd have 75 students in a lecture hall sitting there in abject terror hoping that he didn't drop his finger on your name.

And Dean Dessem was a great guy, but if you didn't know your stuff he would absolutely tear you to ribbons. A few other guys there were exactly like that and man you came to class prepared. Professor Whitman was like a hilariously cutthroat version of the Paper Chase professor; he'd give you a wry grin and proceed to give you the best-natured, passive aggressive ass-kicking you'd ever receive. And I've never known anyone to say a cross word about him - he was an amazing teacher.

Then there were a few lazy ones where if you just stared at them long enough, they'd feed you the answers. That was the class where I caught up on my current events in the back row.

All you have to do to create discussion is not suck at your job. That's why I have very little empathy for the 'poor teachers that just can't engage a classroom.' I've seen it done and on subjects a hell of a lot more boring than religious studies or American history. You just have to be willing to work for it. You can't go from the "Professor's Guide" or the lesson plan you've used for the last 1/2 decade. You have stay on top of your field, just like the rest of the working world does.

If someone insults a person you deeply love and respect, what would your instant reaction be?

Like I said - sometimes you have to actually try.

I'd be overly dramatic, call a newspaper, threaten to kill the person, and start a thread on chiefsplanet about it.

He also disputes the notion that he told students to 'stomp on Jesus.'

In the article he said he only asked people to step on the paper and that only one student had an objection.

Professor Poole is "very religious" and that "Jesus is my lord and savior, it's how I identify myself as a Christian."

He told insidehighered.com that the he expected students to pause before stepping on the paper, with their discomfort setting off a discussion.

He says he has received hate mail and death threats and that people have called for his firing. "And it's all for doing my job. I was doing my job."
FAU put Poole on administrative leave for his safety.
