Media storm causes FAU to release video apology for Jesus stomping

Following a public reprimand from Gov. Rick Scott for the incident referred to as the “stomp Jesus” assignment, Florida Atlantic University has released a video apology.

Although a prepared statement of apology was issued on Friday, the story has continued to spread across media outlets and in social media circles.

Dr. Charles Brown, Senior Vice President for Student Affairs at FAU, emailed the following on Tuesday afternoon:

    I think we should have a stomp on Allah day in fairness.

  • Charlie Houser

    Disgusting, you people should be ashamed. I am very hurt by this abuse of my faith in an institution that accepts public funds.

  • James Lee James Sr.

    apology will be accepted when the offensive "teacher" has been fired and his teaching credentials taken away so he can't ever be a "teacher" again !

    and I'm being as polite and sympathetic as I can under the circumstances

    i believe you, when you kicked out the proffessor

  • Robert Krick

    I don't think schools apology should be excepted until you fire the instructor.

    Thank you

    First of all they are sorry that the story got such wide attention and there is No mention of disciplinary action against the so called professor?

    Let's see, prior to your apology I wrote to the Board of Regents, FAU's president, and Gov Scott regarding this unfortunate incident. NO public university in this state is going to conduct classes that require insulting any religion, especially not the Christian principles this country was built on. Only when you fire that professor will I be satisfied. I put two daughters through the University of Florida battling leftist professors, and that was bad enough, this is the last straw.

    A teaching-moment? probably not, but…

  • Linda

    The professor involved in this is an official in the Democrat Party so his anti-Christian views shouldn't surprise anybody.

  • Rich

    Good for you. I also put 2 children through the University of Florida and I wonder how many other Universities are using or have used this book? We need to know and why pick the name of Jesus? FAU seems Hell bent on blaspheming the christian religion. They did it with a play "Corpus Christie" in 2001 where they depicted Jesus Christ as gay. I thank the media and especially this site for bringing this issue to the forefront.
