For the second time this year, Florida Atlantic University is making the news for the strange behavior of a professor.
A junior at the university’s Davie campus says his professor threw him out of a course for refusing to “stomp on Jesus.”
Ryan Rotela, of Coral Springs, told CBS12 in West Palm Beach that three weeks ago, the instructor in his Intercultural Communications class asked everyone in the class to take out a sheet of paper, write “Jesus” in bold letters and put the piece of paper on the floor.
The instructor, Deandre Poole, then told the class to stomp on the papers.
Rotela refused, and told Poole he was offended by the instruction.
"Anytime you stomp on something it shows that you believe that something has no value. So if you were to stomp on the word Jesus, it says that the word has no value," Rotela told CBS12.
