Florida Atlantic U. apologizes for "stomp on Jesus" assignment

Rate this post

This is a follow-up on Trail Dust’s outstanding post of March 21, 2013, “President Lucifer’s disciples are feeling bold,” about an instructor (not a professor – Big Difference!) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), Deandre J. Poole, who required his students to write “Jesus” on a piece of paper, then put it on the floor and stomp on it. A student, Ryan Rotela, refused to participate in the class assignment and was punished by being suspended from the class.
When the news first broke about this outrage, FAU had defended the controversial assignment. No doubt because of the volume of reaction FAU President Mary Jane Saunders (Email: president@fau.edu) received from outraged Christian Americans, the university apparently no longer thinks the class assignment was appropriate.

From Doug Giles’ Clash Daily, March 23, 2013:

Florida Atlantic University has issued an apology for a classroom assignment that involving students writing the name “Jesus” on a sheet of paper and then stomping on the paper. The university also said the lesson will never again be used.

“We sincerely apologize for any offense this has caused,” the university said in a statement to Fox News. “Florida Atlantic University respects all religions and welcomes people of all faiths, backgrounds and beliefs.”
The university initially defended the Christ-bashing lesson which is included textbook titled, “Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, 5th Edition.”

Fox News obtained a synopsis of the lesson taught by Deandre Poole, who also happens to be vice chair of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party.

Giles included this contact info for Instructor Deandre Poole. If you email Poole, I suggest that instead of cursing him, you practice Christian charity by telling him Jesus loves even those who hate him, including Deandre Poole, and that you are praying for him.
Demons hate the Light. 🙂

  1. Dr. Eowyn,
    Your call for Christian charity in dealing with this man and others like him is right in line with what I believe. And more importantly, it challenges us to live up to our Lord’s example.

  2. Aplomb isn’t always my strongest attribute. I would have freaked out on this guy the way St. Peter did on the centurion… minus the cutting off of the ear… but you get what I am saying.
    And why couldn’t he attempt a smile for his faculty photograph?

  3. There will be a place in heaven for Ryan for demonstrating courage in the face of blasphemy.

  4. People power in action, good one!!

  5. Things are bad enough with real professors brainwashing kids these days, for which their parents and you the tax payer pay; but to have to pay some two bit instructor to do it , is really adding insult to injury.

  6. Look at his face–what an “unhappy camper” he appears to be…without faith and the love of Jesus in his life.

  7. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this enlightening post. The devil and his demons hate love, because God is love. I just sent an e-mail to this instructor advising him indeed that Our Lord, Jesus, “still” loves him, and that He wants him to come back to Him.

  8. I wish I could have a little more Christian charity. The students should have written the name of the professor in big letters on a piece of paper and stomped the sh#t out of it.

  9. It is deeply disturbing that they ALLOWED IT in the first place!!!
