Default Fla University Professor

A Florida Univ Professor made his students write the name JESUS on a piece of paper and then made the students STOMP on the paper. One student refused and was expelled.

Now what do you think would have happened if the students were told to write Mohammad on a piece of paper and stomp on it and a Muslim student refused.

I hope when he left he went to the nearest attorney. I would own that school before I was finished.

That would be the lead story on the national news. Care to give some credibility to your claim?

For one thing, without going "political" which would be shut off here, the instructor seems ill-prepared and seriously lacking in terms of teaching methodology and instructional techniques at the university levee. And he lacks insight!

This is a good example of why students, taxpayers and parents protest giving tenure to people who have a PhD and research publications, but have never had even 2 credits of teaching methodology/techniques from the 30+ credits every grade and high school teacher is required to take for licensure.

Here's the instructor's bio.
School of Communication & Multimedia Studies

I think there is something seriously wrong with this professior.

What was he thinking?

Maybe he wasn't thinking!!!!

Whatever point he was trying to make could have be done in a tasteful way.

Just sayin....

I agree. What probably got lost in all of this is what the point was. For example, the point may have been that the name "Jesus" written on a piece of paper is not actually Jesus. It's still just a piece of paper.

Which media are you talking about? There appear to be two of them.

A number of different media----my "gut" tells me that there is a lot more to this story than what I've read up to this point in time.
