    Christian Student SUSPENDED For Confronting Muslim Professor Over Comments

    Christian student SUSPENDED For Confronting Muslim Professor Over Comments: “Crucifixion was a hoax” and “Jesus’ disciples didn’t believe he was God”

    Lucian Wintrich Mar 29th, 2017 1:28 pm

    Marshall Polston was sitting through a Humanities course at Rollins College on March 24, when his Muslum, Middle Eastern, Professor Areej Zufari is alleged to have gone on an Anti-Christian tirade. In addition to Areej Zufari’s alleged anti-Christian tirade, which included incendiary comments such as ‘Jesus’ crucifixion was a hoax’ during class. It was also reported thatProfessor Areej Zufari seemed to agree with a Muslim student in the class, who advocated for homosexuals to be decapitated under Sharia law. VIA Central Flordia Post:

    Early on in the class, Polston said he realized the professor was harboring Anti-Christian beliefs
    , demonstrated by the professor’s assertion that the crucifixion of Jesus was a hoax and that his disciples did not believe he was God.
    “It was very off-putting and flat out odd. 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.
    Polston says that he challenged her on this point during a class discussion and after that, Professor Zufari promptly failed him on a major essay and refused to provide input as to why she issued a 52% grade for the essay.

    “I was upset, understandably. I’ve never gotten anything less than straight A’s, so I was really interested in figuring out how to possibly improve or at least understand the grade.”

    This is when we step into the Twilight Zone. The teacher then reported Polston to the “Dean of Safety” at Rollins and cancelled class because she claimed he was making her feel “unsafe.”

    When classes resumed, the professor decided to focus on a hot-button issue, the application of Sharia Law. During the discussion, according to Polston, another student made a shocking statement.

    The student, a yet to be identified Muslim male, is said to have showcased a very strict adherence to the Quaran in previous group talks. But this time, he went too far for many students in the classroom.
    “He stated that a good punishment for gays, adulterers, and thieves was the removal of a certain body part, as determined by Sharia law. It took a few seconds for me to realize that he actually said that, especially after what this community has faced with the tragic loss of life at Pulse,” explained Polston.

    The DailyMail has more
    Polston says he was then banned from returning to class, but Zufari says he walked by their meeting the next week and that’s what pushed her to fill out the police report.

    The claim was based on a student who allegedly saw Polston ‘staring into the room’ around 7:36pm on March 23. Campus safety were dispatched but could not locate Polson.

    Polston has denied the claims, providing a surveillance photo of him eating at a Chipotle just before 7pm – about a 30 to 40 minute drive away.

    Zufari filed a ‘protection against stalking’ request against Polston on March 23, and the next day he was officially suspended from the school.
    In a letter to Polston, administrators said his ‘actions have constituted a threat of disruption within the operations of the College and jeopardize the safety and well-being of members of the College community’.

    Polston says he has hired an attorney and is exploring his legal options.

    Notice that the professor's false pronouncements about Christianity is not news, but the student's reaction is news.

    If the professor actually made those comments, the man is simply unqualified to be a university professor. You would think that somebody was recording the lecture and could verify that the professor spoke this way. On the other hand, why would a student lie about such a thing and if he did lie, then why not be charged for lying instead of how he was charged?

    It's getting worse and worse. Really this has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with intellectual standards at the universities. The history of Christian belief is pretty clear to anyone who cares to make a casual inquiry, you do not have to be a believer.

    I don't think it is insanity, it is stupidity. Being stupid is the new alternative way of looking at things, embraced by both the "right" and the "left". Stupidity is the intellectual engine behind the "Two Party System". It has spread to the universities, the places that are supposed to be most immune to stupidity.

    Look at her false smile - as the Italians would say of the muslims,
    Nessun volto - una falsa persona del diavolo - no face - an untruthful person of the devil
    Only they could come to Christian countries and spread such lies w/o batting an eye and a big smile.
