Florida Professor Who Demanded Student Stomp On Jesus Gets Just Deserts


It all started with a conflict between an antagonistic professor and one brave student at Florida Atlantic University. Ryan Rotela was told by his professor to write Jesus Christ’s name on a piece of paper and stomp on it. Rotela defiantly refused and in retaliation, a formal disciplinary action was started against him.

Jesus But, before the system could roll over Rotela, a funny thing happened. The word about what was happening to him got out, Christians became outraged, and suddenly the university’s tune quickly changed. “FAU’s Senior Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Charles Brown, has since issued a groveling formal apology.” Next thing you know, the disciplinary action was waved off.

Now, comes word that the professor, Deandre Poole, has been put on administrative leave following a withering public response, that included complaints from the Governor of Florida, Rick Scott.

It’s just like Norman Vincent Peale used to say, “Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.” Ryan Rotela stood up and it turned out that the bullies at his college weren’t as tough as they thought they were.
