I love a story like this. It shows the utter perversity of tax-funded university education.
A student in a class in the academically peripheral Florida Atlantic University was told by the instructor to stomp on the name of Jesus. Do it, or flunk.
The student refused. He then protested to the administration. Result: the student has been told not to attend the class, not to talk to other students, and shut up.
This has hit the press. Now there will be a huge stink.
Some administrative bureaucrat has defended this action. She has made the school look stupid as well as perverse. To see photos of these two defenders of academic freedom, as well as their victim, click here.
My guess: if the instructor were white, he would not have his contract renewed. But now the administration is caught between a rock and a hard place. Either it gets accused of racism or it gets accused of blatant stupidity. I love it.
There will probably be a lawsuit. This will get lots of publicity.
Bureaucrats hate this kind of publicity. I love it.
This act of sacrilege was a rite of passage. This sort of practice was described in 1945 by C. S. Lewis in his great novel, That Hideous Strength. It was a way to break a man’s will to resist perversity.
Floridians’ tax money is paying for this.
You can rest assured that your tax money is paying for something equally stupid or perverse. It just has not hit the media.
