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


    A student says he was suspended from Rollins College for challenging his Muslim professor’s anti-Christian assertions, including her claim that Jesus’ crucifixion never took place.

    Twenty-year-old Marshall Polston, a sophomore at the private, Florida-based four-year college, said that the professor of his Middle Eastern Humanities class also told students that Jesus’ disciples did not believe he was God.

    Polston, an avid traveler and self-described Christian, has toured the Middle East and is familiar with the Muslim culture.

    “Honestly, it reminded me of some of the more radical groups I researched when abroad,” Polston told the Central Florida Post about his professor’s comments on Jesus.

    “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,’” he continued. “Regardless, to assert the contrary as academic fact is not supported by the evidence.”

    So a 'professor' (which belies the intent of the title) can may any stupid claim they want, but a student cannot challenge it? Sounds like the concept of academic freedom is a load of road apples to me. What a bunch of hypocrites. This student is probably better off out than in this institution, since it is obviously not much into teaching the truth.
