I did read the link. It was incredible one sided.

Wait, the link YOU (@markust) provided was incredibly one sided? What?

"FAU officials are having a terrible time keeping their story straight regarding this kerfuffle."
From your link, 9:40:53 AM, below.

Aside from the FAU's "excuses" for the SECOND suspension, what part of my link was "one sided"? Which facts were "omitted"? Just because it didn't detail the FAU's reasoning, or provide the text from the textbook that the Prof may OR MAY NOT have followed?

It's AN OPINION BLOG! Not "Mainstream News" so guess what? It just MIGHT be opinionated... but your "Yahoo News" essentially tells the exact same story... as do all the other "news" outlets.

Is there a stomp Allah too? Is that OK? Stomp gays? Stomp blacks? Jews? Is that different? Discuss amongst your liberal selves.

If this is as reported (Fox) then as an atheist I would have declined.

They spread this story about the Knights Templars just before getting medieval on their ass.

@5Cats, Can I call you "I never even bother to read the links I provide"?

Actually you can call me that on the Posts where you link to partisan trash like Breitbart.

I did read the link. It was incredible one sided. That is why I commented. I'm not you. I actually have a thirst for the truth.

Sorry 5Cats but when 3 people state that your article is forced or one sided you may not be giving the whole story in your original link. If you are not going to own your partisan nature you should probably change.

At least there wasn't a riot over it with the school getting blown up and the staff getting their heads ceremonially cut off....

"Jesus loves you" is the one phrase I'm afraid of... in prison.

What if it were a 'Stomp an abortion doctor' exercise?

While I don't know the point of this "exercise" I don't get why the Mormon got pissed. Jesus is just a name, and a fairly common name in some Hispanic & Christian regions of the world.

Whenever someone says the name Jesus the first thing I do is correct them, it's pronounced "hay-soos" not "gee-zus". Then I ask them how they know Jesus and if it's the same Jesus who happens to be my neighbor's gardener. (Yes, he really is the gardener, and he's Mexican)

Chill the f*ck out people, it's just a name, same as writing "Bob" or "Dave" or "John Doe" on a piece of paper and stomping on it.

Some people have no metacognition skills.

@Ilikelogic: Like the professor? Or the FAU administration?

@Kain1: afaik this is the "timeline":

>The day it happened he complained to his professor.
>2 days later he complained to the department
>He was then suspended from that class for "uttering threats"
>At this point I think the media was contacted, by whom? Most likely the student (or his lawyers...)
>FAU issues an apology, says no one is being punished.
>FAU then fully suspends the student and prohibits him from being on campus OR talking to his classmates

They can prevent him from speaking to his classmates? Like THAT's constitutional! (Only a Judge can order that...)

It was an absolutely stupid and offensive "exercise". This forced multiculturalism BS needs to stop. Had a muslim student been asked to step on the name mohamed or allah there would've been riots, it would've made headline news on all TV outlets.

Btw, i wonder who contacted the media. And also, did he get suspended before or after the media was contacted ?

So, what did we learn from this exercise?

People are having problems stomping on a piece of paper with the name of Jesus written on it.
Some people have major problems with it.
Some people have no metacognition skills.

(the problem seems to have been the quotation I copied, perhaps IAB didn't like the "" on it?)

That Link I Mentioned

IAB is refusing to let me link this (I tried!), but another report says:

Florida Atlantic University has issued an apology in which FAU states: "this exercise will not be used again".

But they're still throwing the book at the student.

Question: Were the students also asked to write the names of Buddah? Moses? Mohammed? Allah? No? I wonder why not...

Link From Within Your Link

The problem is not "the exercise" itself, there's POSSIBLE justifications for it, I've never said anything to the contrary.
The PROBLEM is that after the student complained? He was suspended.
They FAU apologized, claiming "no one" was being punished.
THEN they punished him!

@markust: Can I call you "I never even bother to read the links I provide"?

It clearly says that the "problem" started when the student REFUSED to do it. It wasn't until 2 days later, AFTER the student complained, that he suddenly got suspended for "making threats".
Such as: "Don't do that again" or "You'll be hearing from me". O_o Obvious terrorism!

THEN the school apologized.

THEN the school outright suspended him and forbid him from contacting classmates.

So where EXACTLY did I "get only one side" of the story?
You ASSUME the Professor followed the textbook instructions to the letter, based on... nothing.

I don't mind answering questions, but when you accuse me of something, then provide a link which PROVES ME CORRECT? I have to wonder, WTF Dude?

OF COURSE there's a "logical explanation" for the exercise, I NEVER suggested otherwise.

5Cats, do you walk around with a permanent "A-ha! Just as I thought!" smirk?

Story on the website feels forced. I'm use to news giving only tiny bits of information to fit its own agenda, while just ignoring the rest. But this story seems like it is forcefully trying to hide the rest.

I think I'll start calling you One Sided 5Cats. If anyone wants the whole story here it is.

This is the lesson from the manual that accompanied the teachers textbook, "Have the students write the name JESUS in big letters on a piece of paper," advises the manual. "After a brief period of silence, instruct them to step on the paper. Most will hesitate. Ask why they can't step on the paper. Discuss the importance of symbols in culture."
