…integrating Christian faith and knowledge in the public square

Florida Atlantic University professor Deandre Poole is a Democrat Party official

Chris S. posted this article from Biz Pac Review about the recent stomping of Jesus at Florida Atlantic University.

Excerpt:

A South Florida college professor’s bizarre classroom antics have made waves for their shocking display of religious intolerance. But they were even more instructive in educating the rest of us on the alarming thought process of yet another Palm Beach County Democratic leader.

Florida Atlantic University professor Deandre Poole instructed his intercultural communications class earlier this month to write the name “Jesus” on a piece of paper, then drop it on the floor and stomp on it.

One student, a devout Mormon, was so so disturbed by the exercise that he complained to school officials, saying Poole had offended his religious convictions. The school responded by suspending the student from the class.

While the incident has made the news, the media has failed to report a key component of Poole’s resume: He is vice-chairman of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party. His recent actions add fire to an already-disturbing pattern of hate coming out of the local party.

Mark Siegel, the former chairman of the county Democratic Party, was forced to resign in September under a barrage of criticism over an anti-Christian tirade at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Siegel, who is Jewish, told an interviewer at the convention that pro-Israel Christians want to see Jews “slaughtered.”

“Oh no, the Christians just want us to be there so we can all be slaughtered and converted and bring on the second coming of Jesus Christ,” he said at the time.

Just two months earlier, in a series of emails, Evelyn Garcia, a Democratic Executive Committee member from Palm Beach County and one of the local party’s Democratic National Committee representatives, accused Israel of “crimes against humanity” and running “mass concentration prison camps.”

Garcia also quit her post in the wake of the public response to her comments.

His biography doesn’t say what area his PhD was in, but judging from this story I’m guessing that it must be in Marxist Studies.

    I read somewhere his PhD is in communication theory or a related discipline.

    One question: Did this idiot also have them write “mohammed” on a piece of paper to stomp on? No ?? Guess he’s afraid of being murdered for insulting Islam. How can some one with a Doctorate be so damned stupid ??

    I am a Christian, and I will forgive anyone. This Christian-bashing really needs to stop.

    Political correctness is the Bible of all these Marxists and Communist so called Professors that are poisoning and brainwashing the minds of innocent children. Let’s just be reminded that ALL of the over 100 million people slaughtered
    in the past century by governments , where either socialist or communist and also where atheist. So if again you know someone with this virus in them , believe me its not a good club they have joined.

    marius, i agree with all but one….i believe there should be respect shown to all religions. our countrys’ foundation was built on this idea. I believe in the seperation of church and state. i believe you should be aloud to celebrate your religion verbally with a merry christmas, happy chanukah..etc..as well as decorate for your appropriate holiday without liberal outcry or public shunning. thats what makes our country great. All of these rights to practice our religions without fear should be upheld to the highest degree. I am a blue collared patriot, a right leaning independent, and an atheist.

    2 TIMOTHY 3:1-2 You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. 2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!

  6. […] exagerando? Eis aqui uma evidência mostrando que o professor doutrinador em questão é um membro do Partido Democrata dos Estados […]
