A student at Florida Atlantic University was suspended from class after complaining to school officials that his professor instructed the class to write the name JESUS on a piece of paper, then drop the papers and stomp all over them, the Daily Caller reports.
The student, Junior Ryan Rotela, went to FAU officials to express his unease with the assignment that happened three weeks ago.
“Anytime you stomp on something it shows that you believe that something has no value,” he told a South Florida CBS affiliate. “So if you were to stomp on the word Jesus, it says that the word has no value.”
An FAU official defended the decision, telling WPEC that the Jesus-stomping was part of a classroom exercise from a textbook: “Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, 5th Edition,” according to the Daily Caller.
The professor in question, Dr. Deandre Poole, is vice-chair of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party.
