Marshall Polson, a sophomore at Rollins College in Florida, is claiming that he was suspended for challenging a Muslim professor who made anti-Christian assertions during a Middle Eastern Humanities class. The professor supposedly claimed that Jesus was never crucified, and that his followers didn’t believe that he was divine.
Polson says that he is not just upset over the anti-Christian rhetoric spoken at his college, but also the rhetoric against anyone who has a point of view that’s not agreeable to “today’s liberal academic elite.”
It is hard to be a conservative on college campuses; liberal professors indoctrinate students to only believe in free speech — if it’s something they agree with. The insanity has caused the creation of “safe spaces” and the label of “snowflakes” for the college liberals, a term originally coined by a famous author Chuck Palahniuk in the novel Fight Club.
The twenty-year-old student has said that he has hired an attorney since the suspension — due to being upset over the incident.
As reported by The College Fix, Polston said, “Our university should be a place where free-speech flashes and ideas can be spoken of without punishment or fear of retribution,” Polston told The College Fix. “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.”
The professor, Areej Zufari, as well as a campus spokesperson, could not be reached by The College Fix late Sunday. However, the Central Florida Post reports that it tried numerous times to obtain comment from Rollins College and Professor Zufari to no avail.
Polston claims the situation began after he challenged Zufari’s assertions about Jesus and his disciples. Polston said this challenge led Zufari to file a complaint with a campus dean, claiming he made her feel “unsafe.”
A Muslim Professor attacking Christianity in the classroom makes one wonder just when the war on the peaceful religion will stop. With an estimated 70% of the U.S. population identifying as Christian, how does this even happen in America?
