Regarding the “Step on Jesus” exercise, I cannot believe that no one can grasp that the point of this lesson was to bring about a discussion of cultural and religious intolerance. It seems that most arguing against the professor stopped their research at the title.
The projected outcome was that most students would not step on the paper, leading to further discussion as to why they would not do it. Why can’t these same devout people who claim this lesson is an outrage see that it is this same intolerance that fuels most wars?
