I’ve been called a bigot and a hatemonger for daring to express my opposition to the teachings of Islam and the violence that is associated with that faith. I’ve had folks question my fitness to teach because I‘ve dared suggest – outside of my classroom, not in it – that Muhammad was a false prophet and that the Quran is not the work of the same deity that I worship as a Christian. Indeed, the words of this blog – selectively edited for maximum distortion – were used to tar the GOP in the area as an extremist group because i am a lowly precinct chair.
So why is there no national outrage when a Democrat official takes to his classroom and directs his students to trample the name of the Son of God?
In the olden days, universities taught how to think. Now they teach what to think. Educators make it easy for students by helping them swallow pre-formed opinions — coercively if necessary, as recently demonstrated in Deandre Poole’s Intercultural Communications class at Florida Atlantic University. From CBS Miami:
Ryan Rotella, a junior from Coral Springs, said the incident began when his professor, Dr. Deandre Poole, asked students in the class to write the word “Jesus” on a piece of paper, fold it up, and step on it.
Rotella, a deeply religious Mormon, told CBS12 that he was offended and refused to participate in the exercise.
After Rotella told Dr Poole’s supervisor about this outrageous assignment, the situation was resolved — Rotella was suspended from the class.
And I do mean WOW!
Burn a Quran and you’ll have national and international media condemning you and the President of the United States declaring your actions to be contrary to American values. Muslims will riot around the world over it. But if you do this you’ll be defended by your university, ignored by the media and our political leaders, and there will be not a single act of violence in protest.
Oh, yeah – and you’ll get to keep your position as the vice-chairman of the palm Beach Democrat Party. After all, Christians who actually believe and take their faith seriously are an easy and acceptable target today.
And if you dare to complain about such things, you will face a host of charges before a Kampus Kangaroo Kourt that will potentially end your entire academic career.
