A student at Rollins College in Florida has hired an attorney after being suspended and banned from campus for challenging Professor Areej Zufari.
Zufari had asserted in class that the Crucifixion of Christ never happened. He also gave the “straight A” student, Marshall Polston, a failing grade on a major essay.
The professor then falsely claimed that Polston had broken the ban and was stalking her class on campus. Video evidence proves he was a half an hour away at the time.
The College Fix reports:
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.”
Liberal professors, which make up a huge majority, claimed freedom of expression as long as it fits their narrative. Conservative and Christian viewpoints are halted immediately in many cases across the country.
“Our university should be a place where free-speech flashes and ideas can be spoken of without punishment or fear of retribution,” Polston said, “In my case it was the total opposite. … I came forward with the story because I know so many other students like me suffer under today’s liberal academic elite.”
Professor Zufari posted on Facebook to the ACLU of Florida that a student that was “making my life h*ll this semester.” She claimed he was “spewing hatred”.
Well we have enough experience to know what that means in the liberal world. It means he disagreed, and stood by his conservative, Christian principles. We’ve seen that play out more times than not.
