First, let me say that I don't support this kind of thing in our schools...although I'm still not sure what the "lesson" was supposed to be. The articles I've read have focused on the outrage over the incident. Does any know more details about what happened or what the students were supposed to be getting out of this? Did they do this with other religions as well?

Also, being someone that doesn't fall into the Left/Right spectrum, I don't think we should be so eager to label things as Left vs Right. What do we know about the teacher outside of this incident? Nothing I've seen says anything about his political ideology.

As for the student being disciplined, we don't know why he is in trouble and the only statement we have says it isn't because of anything that happened during that class. So again, I don't think we should be jumping to conclusions. I'm not saying that something fishy isn't going on, because this certainly 'smells', but we shouldn't make assumptions based on limited information.
It's purely agenda driven, the left want to destroy American culture, and what better way than to make someone callous towards others defacing Religious symbols.

If I were the student, for my next project I would bring in pictures of homosexual couples, (or maybe Obama), pass them out to the entire class, and have them stomp on them. :lol:

No doubt about it. :wink:

The left are really a strange bunch. They spend half their time trying to convince people that Jesus was a socialist, and the other half spitting on Him, placing Him in urine, or stomping on Him. :blink:

Before I came to this forum I was mainly on religious forums, I left due to thing you stated here, I got so tired of debating all the time. Christian Doctrine teaches self sacrafice, charity and even reasonable taxation, but its all voluntary because God wants to judge you and give you the freedom to not do these things, this is what the socialists dont understand. government control is not voluntary.

Strange bunch indeed, for a laugh study the coalition of leftist during the spanish civil war or read Orwells Tribute to Catalonia  :laugh:

Good point, he should have made her a deal, she had to stomp on a picture of her Messiah "the Child POTUS" and burn a copy of The Communist Manifesto.

The idiot teacher taught a valuable lesson that they didn't intend to...

The leftist notion that others don't have a "right" to disagree with them. If allowed, they will take over the entire planet, and the right to disagree with {their} authority will be a distant memory. :sad:

What needs to be stomped out, is this intolerant line of thinking.

Along the same lines; I'm very happy to see Dr Ben Carson expose the leftist hatred of free and well accomplished blacks.

They hate Christianity and Jesus for the same reasons: Self responsibility over the dictates of the state. God is the enemy.

Then you are thinking like a rational person, to normal people the exercise is a complete waste of time, to a Leftist with an agenda, it is making headway.

It's more than a waste of time. It was meant to OFFEND. It was meant to offend "bigoted Christians" and Western values.  Only Islam cannot be offended (well, maybe Islam and ALL other religions -- except Christianity).

Parents, students and concerned citizens should have a day of protest in which they stomp on the name of the professor -- or even the "name," Democrat Party.  :lol:

I don't think it was meant to offend.

I think that people like this professor look at all things that represent decency, as chains that bind them. Teaching the students to reject those things is their primary objective. Islam does not represent decency, therefore it is something to be embraced and protected.

On some twisted level, these people look at God as the one thing that is standing in the way of complete freedom. When they finally win the battle, the earth as we know it will come to an end.

When they realize how wrong they were, it will be too late.

You're right, it wasn't meant to offend.

Gut they're too damn stupid to realize they're wrong, Hell, after 4 years of a depression and sky rocketing deficit, they still think it's Bush's fault.

Like I said earlier, it's all part of an huge agenda of deconstructing morality/core values.
If you can desensitize a child from being upset over things he knows to be wrong, like insulting a persons Religion, then it's even easier to convince them that our Founders were wrong on Freedom of Religion, and if they were wrong on one thing, they must be wrong on all counts.

I really don't see this as anything new, but just an expansion of a long sought battle for the youth of America.

I would love to be assigned to the discipline board panel that hears this case. When I was an undergrad, I only ever got to serve on panels that heard the "typical" charges (e.g., drug possession, underage drinking, etc.).

I would make the professor look like the far-left unprofessional fool that he is. First question: "Professor, explain to those of us who lack your supreme enlightenment and intelligence how stomping on pieces of paper with 'Jesus' written on them is supposed to promote critical thinking." Second Question: "Would stomping on pieces of paper with 'Mohammad' inspire critical thinking, and, if so, why didn't you have your students stomp on Mohammad?" Third question: "Do you understand how some people think this is a foolish and extremely offensive activity that resembles grade school playground shenanigans rather than the type of in class instruction one would expect to occur in a college classroom?"

To put this in another perspective, say, how psychologists treat PTSD in children.
It is not uncommon to treat victims of violence when attempting to take back their lives by creating dolls or images of their abuser and having them throw them in the trash, stomp on them etc, this exercise is no different, in that it is taking what is considered taboo in our society and removing it's power as a symbol.
In this case, Jesus represents a symbol of good, but in the eyes of leftists, Jesus stands in the way of progress, a progression towards removing the 1st Amendment.

As ridiculous as this sounds, the left is full of similar examples of breaking down moral codes and values, take the little black book program they sneaked in under the guise of teaching acceptance.
