FAU apologizes for ‘Stomp Jesus’ lesson, vows never again

Public outrage over the controversial “Stomp Jesus” classroom assignment has forced Florida Atlantic University to issue an apology.

“We sincerely apologize for any offense this has caused,” the university said in a prepared statement to Fox News. “Florida Atlantic University respects all religions and welcomes people of all faiths, backgrounds and beliefs.”

The apology comes after a student complained that FAU professor Deandre Poole offended his religious beliefs when he instructed his intercultural communications class earlier this month to stomp on a piece of paper with  “Jesus” written on it. The student was subsequently suspended from the class.

The school said the lesson will no longer be used, Fox News reported.

BizPac Review was the first to point out that the media failed to report a key component of Poole’s resume: He is vice-chairman of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party. His recent actions add fire to an already-disturbing pattern of hate displayed by the local party, which include the resignation of its former chairman, Mark Siegel.

Siegel was forced out after telling a reporter covering the 2012 Democratic National Convention that pro-Israel Christians want to see Jews “slaughtered.”

An FAU official at first defended Poole’s decision to use the scandalous “Stomp Jesus” lesson, telling WPEC-Channel 12 that it was part of a classroom exercise from the textbook, “Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, 5th Edition.”

  1. No doubt these same Jesus hating academics at FAU are in contrast, all too quick to show fawning deference whenever writing the name Muhammad insisting to always include the ridiculously politically correct (peace be upon him) lest any Muslim’s supremacy be offended.

    I can hardly wait for the next round of their SLIGHT OF HAND dubious explanations once the noise subsides.

    Forgive them; they don’t know any better because they live in a cocoon of liberalism. Not only is it acceptable to mock Jesus in their little world it is mandatory.

    It was such a clever passive aggressive strategy while pretending innocence (but they got caught).

    They are a bunch of groveling dhimmi dummies wishing to be intolerant of Jesus yet all too quick to appease Islam. It is nothing new; it is a disease infecting many universities.

  3. Robert Rex EDWARDS says:

    ZERO TOLERANCE to any form of bullying in any school is the law. The act by POOLE constitutes mental and emotional bullying to a belief. Also separation of church and state in a secondary education, unless the school is a religious charter. All forms of bullying must be STOMPED ON! His teaching license must be taken so he can not do any more harm to any other students. The bully's ammo for his gun was shot into the heads of all who heard him. Mold a person and create him or her to create or destroy. POOLE is molding religious hatred. Objectivity is to condemn his followers to hate. Do we not have enough young minds molded that way already? Is live no longer precious to no one. This must stop NOW! STOMP ON this and stop bullying in its tracks.
