Regarding “FAU puts instructor on leave over ‘Jesus’ exercise threats: Congratulations to Deandre Poole for a lesson well taught. Now that the thinking members of his class have watched ignorant classmates declare their version of a fatwa against the instructor they have certainly learned that words as symbols have immense power.
And hopefully the ignorant ones, including some in the faculty who should have offered their unyielding support, will better understand Dr. Poole’s message, and can relate to the anger of Muslims when their religious symbols are denigrated. Do we ever learn?
