Must not defend Christian beliefs

Even when public funds are being used to preach Muslim beliefs

 A Christian student was suspended from Florida's Rollins College last week after allegedly threatening his Middle Eastern humanities professor, who is Muslim.

But sophomore Marshall Polston denies threatening Professor Areej Zufari and claims he is being unjustly treated after confronting her over her 'anti-Christian' teachings and support for a 'homophobic' student.

Polston accuses Zufari of claiming Jesus’ crucifixion was a hoax during class, and failing to challenge a Muslim student who said homosexuals should be decapitated under Sharia law. 

Polston claims that he never threatened Zufari and that he simply disagreed with her teachings, which included claims that Jesus' crucifixion never happened.

Zufari and Polston, a 20-year-old international affairs major, have reportedly been clashing since the beginning of the semester in January.

According to an email the professor wrote to the school in February, she says Polston disrupted the first two classes with 'antagonizing interjections, contradicting me and monopolizing class time'.  'His attitude is contemptuous,' she said.  

As a Christian, Polston said that Zufari's unorthodox lectures were unsettling.

In an interview with the Central Florida Post, Polston said that Zufari claimed Jesus' crucifixion was a hoax and that his disciples didn't believe he is 'God'.

'It was very off-putting and flat out odd,' he said. '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.'

'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". Regardless, to assert the contrary as academic fact is not supported by the evidence,' he added to The College Fix.

The professor and liberal members of the class are also claiming that they feel "unsafe" and "intimidated" by him because of his expressing his views and that he might be out to harm them. This is the progressive playbook, demonize your opponents and claim they are out to hurt you to get sympathy for your cause even though it is patently indefensible. This is the university that banned students having private bible study groups in their dorm rooms so this incident comes as no surprise.

It is time to defund public universities until the those the leftist PC shield are exposed equally to both sides of an argument as you should find in court or the fields of science. Sadly both fields have been corrupted by the leftist irregular view of the world as in their is only one opinion and any other is wrong. I am sorry but society is in the decline like the Roman Empire and we have reached a point where there is no way back.
