Student Suspended for Challenging Muslim Prof’s Claim That Jesus Wasn’t Crucified

Student Suspended for Challenging Muslim Prof’s Claim That Jesus Wasn’t Crucified

Double standard?

Are the students in this class allowed to question the teachings of Islam? Fair is fair, right?

The Washington Times reports:

College suspends student who challenged Muslim prof’s claim that Jesus’ crucifixion a hoax

A Florida college student was suspended after he challenged a Muslim professor who claimed that Jesus’ crucifixion at Calvary was a hoax.

Marshall Polston, 20, was suspended March 24 by Rollins College in Winter Park after an argument with his Middle Eastern Humanities professor over the historical validity of Jesus’ death, a failing grade, and a Muslim’s student’s allegedly violent rhetoric during a discussion on Sharia Law. The professor, Areej Zufari, claimed he was harassed, although video surveillance obtained by a local paper suggests otherwise.

“It was very off-putting and flat out odd,” Mr. Polston said of his professor’s claims about Christianity, The Central Florida Post reported March 25. “I’ve traveled the Middle East, lectured at the Salahaddin University, and immersed myself in Muslim culture for many years. Honestly, it reminded me of some of the more radical groups I researched when abroad.”

Mr. Polston said he was upset by his grade, but baffled as to how his inquires warranted a report to the Dean of Safety and a suspension.

“Whether religious or not, I believe even those with limited knowledge of Christianity can agree that according to the text, Jesus was crucified and his followers did believe he was divine … that he was ‘God,’ ” the sophomore told The College Fix on Saturday. “Regardless, to assert the contrary as academic fact is not supported by the evidence.”

A muslim teaching a course on religion, what could go wrong.

And the war on Christianity continues unabated….

In any credible “religious studies” course, they should be studying the beliefs of other cultures, not weighing in on which might be true and which are false.

As a student, if I’m taking a “religious studies” course, I’m there to study religions, not be indoctrinated into one or told in no uncertain terms that mine is false.

If I wanted an “Islamic advocacy” course, I’d sign up for that!

Exhibit A why all federal and state funding to higher education should be eliminated forthwith.
