This article leaves out that students where not ordered to stomp on the paper, in fact it was stated that students where told they did not have to participate in the exercise. Also the student was not kicked out of class because he didnt participate he was kicked out for making threats against the professor. The professor has been placed on leave for his safety because all of these religous nuts are making death threats against him, one voicemail said they would see him hanging from a tree. Only religous morons would think of killing someone for stepping on a piece of paper.

Oh! In that case, that changes everything. While I too feel the exercise was stupid and inappropriate, we utterly cannot tolerate threats of violence by anyone. Were the police brought in?

However, while I have no love for Jesus freaks who try to shove that biblical b.s. on me, it is very convenient to annoy Christians. Try asking your class to stomp on MOHAMMED and see what happens!

Wow, just when our country is in such great need for some sort of moral rebirth, even the so-called 'teachers' are doing their dirtiest to stomp out all morality.

<quoted text>Where is the educational value in insulting peoples' belief/faith system? Making them think? About WHAT? HIS belief system of obvious atheism? And where does HIS right to impose HIS non-belief come from? One can instill critical thinking without denigrating one's religious convictions. He could have very well had them print THEIR name and stomp on IT. Or Allah,Buddah or even Obama.....
it would seem to me that contradicted your own comment.
My point being, you feel had it been Allah, Buddah, or Obama then it would of been ok. Why is that?

It wasn't a picture of "Jesus." It was a piece of paper that said "JESUS."

"When a Florida Atlantic University professor ordered students to stomp on a piece of paper with the word "Jesus" written on it, he joined a growing list of classroom instructors with unconventional teaching methods."

Jesus, you folks are hugely misinformed - I'm just glad ya'll weren't around in October of 1938, listening to the radio.
