Florida University Student Suspended After Refusing to Stomp on Jesus

Screen shot 2013-03-21 at 3.19.28 PM

A student at Florida Atlantic University has charged that his professor in intercultural communications class told the whole class to write the name JESUS in bold letters on a piece of paper, then drop the papers and stomp all over them.

The alleged incident happened three weeks ago on the Davie, Florida campus of FAU, according to WPEC-TV.

Junior Ryan Rotela, a devout Mormon, is the student making the charge.

“Anytime you stomp on something it shows that you believe that something has no value,” he told the South Florida CBS affiliate. “So if you were to stomp on the word Jesus, it says that the word has no value.”

Some students stomped; others, including Rotela, didn’t. He said he told the instructor, Deandre Poole, that the assignment offended his religious convictions.

Two days later, the junior alleges, he went to an FAU school official to express his unease with the assignment.

The result? Rotela has been suspended from the class.

An FAU official defended the decision, telling WPEC that the Jesus-stomping was part of a classroom exercise from a textbook: “Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, 5th Edition.”

    That’s a course he doesn’t want to be taking anyway and a University he should transfer out of too! In situations like this it’s good to vote with your feet!

    Perhaps he should have written the Prof’s name on the paper and then stomped on it.

    • Jim

      Or Obama’s

    • DE Navarro

      Or just write “F you” on it and stomp on it.

      Better yet, just write “DRAC” on it and stomp all over that. Would have caused the same reaction in this Mormon creep.

  • http://www.facebook.com/susan.leach1 Susan Leach

    I double dog dare that professor to write mohammed or allah on a piece of paper and stomp on it in public. Lets see just how long he keeps his job, let alone his head.

    • Karen

      Or gets blamed for the next Benghazi……

    • http://twitter.com/PlsCloneNugent Susan Borden

      I suggest any student who faces this persecution, blog, write, put up signs around campus that the professor asked them to stomp on ‘Muhammad’, and let the good instructor explain to their Muslim visitors it was only Jesus, if they get the time.

      • coastx

        Oh yeah, by all means, save drac.

      My thoughts exactly!
      As one with a communications degree I am puzzled by the significance of such an assignment. What greater purpose does the assignment serve? Hmmm?

      • coastx

        She fleshed this little monster out. He’s a DRAC! He’s a Mormon Drac. People are all like, “SHES ATTACKING JESUS!” Incorrect. I doubt Jesus would have a problem with this really. Lil Bat’s a victim for a change, and not much pain involved compared to what these monsters do to their female eugenics victims. Black mass sacrifice, baby! Lots and lots of them. They are breeding down intelligence in the US by taking out the Eve Novus. Been doing it since 1888. Anyone whose savvy on the Mormon church as a national security issue knows this. Otherwise people walk around stupid and don’t know any better. See the Mormon elders roadside and people wave like they were family. Always two of them. Predatory eyes and ears of the beast used to TRIANGULATE on their victims, which is the Eve Novus. They scope them out as children. Abduct/sacrifice as young women in a Fabian mission creep. These are long term projects which is why they are difficult to catch. The victims are a long time removed from the elders that identify them, the former eventually taken in tandem, one sacrificed curbside the other “enjoyed” by the Mormon Elite.

        • http://www.facebook.com/david.a.watson.92 David Allen Watson

          Whoever wrote this garbage should be on their knees. What would this hideous exercise prove. Your doubt that Jesus would have a problem with this shows your complete ignorance of the Bible. Your education is as worthless as your opinion. The exercise could have no more significance than to portray Christ as insignificant, something a sadist must do to commit the unpardonable sin. I can only pray you haven’t done this. I am so repulsed by this story, I will assure you this is far from over.

          • coastx

            In your opinion, were Jesus to have witnessed this event, what do you think he would have done, and how is this similar to or different than what Junior Ryan Rotela complained about? I think that’s a fair question, since we’re talking about the resurrected Christ.

            Before we get started, I am going to prove two things: 1) you’re an idiot, and 2) You’re Mormon or proficient with their ODC. Rotella possess this proficiency, too. It’s ciphered in his name.

            Message? The prof., one black man, took on the entire white race in one classroom activity and has technically exposed the Mormon church as a fraud. THAT’S ego!

          Professor is a Vice Chairman of the local Democratic/ Progressive party coastx, hardly an “impartial mind of higher learning”. You seem content to blame the student for his actions, but not the “teacher”, why? Are you really that much of a mormonophobe? Really?

        Some Universities like playing this kind of game and allow their resident “pagan” to play games with the class for shock value. Of course this shows what kind of administration they have because you know the Professor did not do this on their own.

        • coastx

      • coastx

        One thing you need to be aware of. This professor is not a liberal. I can tell you why if you ask. Or, just sit there and do the stupid act.

        • http://twitter.com/mjojonell Michael J Nellett

          It doesn’t make any difference if the professor is liberal or not because IGNORANCE can come from any philosophy! There is no justification for this exercise.

          • coastx

            Academic freedom. He doesn’t need justification. I took a C in a graduate class back in day from a professor I didn’t agree with. I had an A in the class. He didn’t like my having asserted my views against this own. A C is a disaster to a 4.0 GPA. I took it with dignity knowing I had won the argument. Who needs a complaint? He can teach and grade however he likes. It’s not a university disciplinary issue. It was a Mormon ego issue. A better way to respond to this would have been for the students in this class to write the professor’s name on a sheet of paper and left these scattered around the hallway. He’d have laughed it off. In reality it didn’t rise to this level of concern for the rest of the class, because they were willing to learn. The Mormon was pressing his own faith against the will of the professor, which if you don’t understand what this means, the student was playing God maker, which is the Mormon prime directive, in a classroom controlled by the professor, stupid.

            Are YOU this professor, because only that person could determine whether they would “laugh it off”. Let’s try this exercise: let’s find out what YOU hold dear, like a picture of your mother, and we’ll all stomp all over it, and maybe pee on it, and tell you if you object, it’s just your ego. See how you’d feel?

          • coastx

            Statist Christians hold dear obedience. Reform Christians value self- Mastery. MORMONS aren’t Christians although they’ve hijacked Christian symbolism to make is appear s though they are. You didn’t know this, did you? Mormons are Crypto Jews on a repatriation mission creep for the monarchy. You didn’t know that either, because you’re ignorant, predictably reactive and pathologically naive. They aren’t real Jews but they have been recruited on a racketeering scheme CREATED by real Jews. You’ll deny this, because it’s different and no ones ever told you this before. You won’t research it to learn more about this, because you’re stupid. You’re stupid because you’re literal minded locked in to a Judeo-Christian programming scheme that doesn’t allow you to think for yourself. Intelligence to YOU is being clever and witty, giggling and laughing, and eventually asking yourself why you didn’t figure thou out BEFORE they stuffed your butt in a FEMA concentration camp.

          • http://www.facebook.com/SonuvLiberTea Joe Peet

    These days education = liberal indoctrination. I have two young daughters and it’s a shame but I no longer value a college education for them. Why incur that much debt just so the university system can turn them into a couple of Obamabots?

    • Karen

      Don’t send them to college. It’s a huge debt when they come out to find they can’t get a job. And the indoctrination is even worse than in public schools. Not to mention it’s a free for all in sloppiness, drinking, sex and drugs. They’ll have a better chance these days learning a skill. Have you tried to find a plumber, electrician, seamstress, etc. lately???

      • SturJen

        Have you ever hired a seamstress lately? I’ve got the skills and I get complaints when I charge 20 bucks to alter a bridesmaid’s gown. Of course, the “Professional seamstress” that they SHOULD have gotten (who sold them the dress in the first place) was going to charge them $80.
        I’ve got the skills, and so do others, but no one wants to pay them the going rate as well. Heck, I would have altered the dress completely for $60. What she got was my very base $20 job that entails very simplistic fixes.

        • Spyder Dalton

          No one thinks they have to pay for anything anymore. It’s the entitlement syndrome. People call for my services and when I mention the fees they never call back. They act as though it costs me nothing to provide the service.

          • HappyClinger

            They probably can’t afford you, thanks to obama.

      • ArielMalek

        The crafts are find for some, but many are called to higher level skilled works such as business, accounting, law, medicine, etc. So many universities are indeed cesspools of indoctrination and brainwashing into Marxism and atheism, but there are-probably a few-that are conservative and Christian and have good academics and world-views. But would need to research. Christians founded the university system(including most Ivy League schools) in the US but eventually surrendered it to fundamentalist atheists. But I have also heard of others that arranged apprenticeships with eg medical doctors or lawyers then arranged to take the proper exams to get degreed from a cooperative university after which they took and passed their respective state licensing-and did so successfully. Also I have heard of a good online Christian university that is very inexpensive relative to the high cost of standard university brainwashing-but that takes disciple on part of the student So many alternatives-just need to be diligent and creative and think outside the matrix.

        • http://www.facebook.com/tom.wehnes.7 Tom Wehnes

          I agree with most of what you said except the part about the crafts are fine. Try building a house to IBC. Most people would not have a clue. I know many engineers whom draw plans which simply make life miserable for a builder because they know math but have no idea how to build anything.

          • ArielMalek

            Tom what is IBC? Yes, I am sure you are speaking correctly. But again isn’t this part of the problem with current Universities which teach mainly theoretical head knowledge rather than also practical application? EG don’t know if correct, but I heard that in Germany that those in unversities also learn an appropriate trade-eg if architect or engineer, they might learn carpentry. Not sure how true. but makes more sense. But also part of problem is that so many current university grads have gone through public schools which are atrocious with all due respect. Third world students in schools that spend a fraction of the ton of money we throw at schools far out perform American students in things like math and science. Again, a symptom of leaving God and the Bible-the key of all knowledge-out of our educational and every other institution. Which is why our humanistic systems are about ready to collapse.

      Get your kids interested in objective hard science/engineering majors like aerospace, electrical or mechanical engineering and find a school that isn’t well known for its political activism. They’ll be fine.

Persecution is reserved for Christians.

    This teacher, if he can even be called that needs to be fired period and the student should be reinstated right away. I agree with Susan, they would murder this teacher if it was mohammad or allah. I would have told the teacher to go to hell and walked out of class and if tried to stop me it would be him on the floor that I would be stomping on.

    So this class was “Intercultural Communication?” One of the essential keys to communications is seeking mutual understanding. So how is showing contempt and disdain for the faith of billions of people displaying understanding and enhancing communication? What does not only expressing religious bigotry and hatred, but infecting others to do so enhance communication and understanding?

    Why is it that these piss ants always do that to Jesus and none of the others? Why not write Budda or Mohammed, hmmmmm?

    These lousy dirt bag professors bring this crap into the class room and always put down the Christian faith.

  • CalvinTalks

    This is a LOT more serious than you realize.

    Many people aren’t aware that in the 1600s, Japan had a thriving Catholic community. The Japanese government eradicated them. How? By a practice called “fumi-e” – requiring suspected Christians to step on a picture of the Virgin Mary or Jesus.

    Continuing from the Wikipedia article on fumi-e: “People reluctant to step on the pictures were identified as Catholics and were sent to Nagasaki. The policy of the Edo government was to turn them from their faith, Catholicism; however, if the Catholics refused to change their religion, they were tortured. As many of them still refused to abandon their faith, they were killed by the government.”

    This college professor is practicing fumi-e on his students. Since he can’t torture or execute anyone, he is having devout Christians suspended. This is not “intercultural communications”; it is a practice directly linked to historical religious persecution.

    Ultimately if you take any argument between Liberals and Conservatives down to it’s base root you will find Jesus Christ as the pivotal issue. It’s funny but the Republicans are supposedly looking for that key issue that is keeping them from approvals at the polls, and I will tell them it isn’t a key issue they need it’s a key they have forgotten. The idea that conservatives will now become ‘fiscal conservatives’ is a ridiculous way to say “we are the new Godless Corporate leaders of America”. America didn’t become a superpower because of the great financial skills of Corporate leaders, it became a great and blessed Nation because of Her God.

  • coastx

    I think setting Jesus aside for a moment, the idea of orchestrating writing anyone’s name on a sheet of paper and stomping on it in an is an act of hatred. That almost seems like coerced militia and is a good example of a misapplication of Milgram.

    I don’t care what the text book says or who authorized it. In my mind it’s mission creep in acculturation to anti reason and the paradoxical lamp-lighting and blockbusting tactics of Fabianism. Blockbusting can get the school sued.

    I am no advocate for Mormons either. Their own organization is culpable of far worse circumstances. For example, Thomas Monson was directly involved in the abductions of Natalee Holloway and Robyn Gardner with absolutely no accountability to the church. This organization is largely philanthropic hiding it’s involvement in the black mass sacrifice with victims numbering in the hundreds of thousands between 1900 and 2000 alone. That’s Ra. Their philanthropic enterprise which is engineered to hide this is Amen, and the propaganda mechanism is Toth (Thoth). They are breeding down intelligence in the mainstream taking the Eve Novus to their own eugenics operation, hence the stupid American. You’ve been bred to it folks via the Mormon church. Those little missionary… predator eyes on the streets ISO guess who, THE EVE NOVUS!

    This guy shouldn’t be feeling do bad, really. If the circumstances had been reversed, he’d have been female, there would have been two, one renditioned/murdered curbside stabbed in the neck a couple of times and the other taken into captivity, tortured and raped by the Mormon elite and sacrificed 9 months later full term delivering the “Satanic” infant moments after mom’s heart had been removed, all with her fully awake and aware of what was happening to her. Psychotic split on the mom, minimally. So whats the problem really? Go ahead and feel the moment for this little drac. I’d be willing to bet there are a lot of sacrifice young women waiting for him to cross over so they can have their days with him. Certainly, America’s been bred too stupid to even know what going on.

    BUUURRRPPP!

Do you think Jesus would mind if you used his name to flesh out a monster? I doubt it. The Mormon church is a MASTER eugenics project in perpetuity. This SSO does the black mass at 3000+ renditions per year and has been since 1888. Not the Saville version of raping children, the sacrifice of a full term pregnant version, the babies oft these women DNA linked to Thomas Monson. You people are fools!

    I am not a Christian – I have my own faith. That being said, what this “professor” – democrat official in his district – offends me no end!! As long as your religion is peaceful, and harms no one, you should be allowed to practice it and not have it denigrated – that includes Christianity!

    Islam, however, is another story – it is a violent religion, demanding death on those that won’t convert to Islam, and for those that leave Islam. It demands unquestioning and demeaning servitude by women – how a woman could willingly join Islam is beyond me (and I know a couple!!). A woman can be accused of adultery with no evidence, and stoned to death , on her husband’s word. Heck, a woman can’t even go out of the house without her husband or male relative, in the stricter areas! Islam SHOULD be stomped on, NOT Jesus!!

    • coastx

      Jesus is a myth. This myth was invented by the council of Nicaea as part of a change process through which the Roman emperor was transformed to a Pope, the idea being to refocus an otherwise diffuse polytheistic culture to one of monotheism, the product of which was Christianity. Roman leadership knew religion worked to motivate people and figured out how to use this to control them. It worked. Rome didn’t fall. It reinvented itself through Christianity.

      Stop acting like an idiot and have some balls. The prof fleshed out a drac, like it or not. The student who made these allegations was suspended because he threatened the professor afterward. HE THREATENED HIM. Make sense? Are you awake, and if your are, what lofts this to the level of a threat?

      You would do well to do a background on this church my friend before throwing yourself into the argument hackles raised and nipping wildly at the individual you THINK is the perp. It’s actually quite a bit different than what are aware of albeit an opportunity to open your mind if you can.

  • rcfrt

    In the 1600′s in Japan Christians were given the choice of stepping on a cross or dying. Symbols have meanings and stomping on the name of Jesus in that atmosphere is just as bad as stomping on any other symbol of Jesus. I don’t care where that assignment came from….the professor should have more sense than to do something like that. He should be sanctioned, not the student.

    And they call colleges schools of “higher” learning? How can that be when the teachers have such low intelligence. Sending kids to such schools will more than likely prevent them from becoming smart enough to find their way in life. There are professional students, and there are those who are intelligent enough to not need some educated idiots teaching. I believe from all my experiences, “if you can’t do it, teach it. If you can’t teach it, supervise it. If you can’t supervise it, put them in charge of the whole project. Obama is an example.

      It is recommended that someone carry this forward to the White House as a nomination for the Presidential Citizen’s Medal on behalf of:

      Deandre Poole, VC, Palm Beach CDP
      Professor, Florida Atlantic University

      1) Impact on challenging the status quo mentality of racial supremacy which promotes that race singularly.

      2) This individual knowingly placed himself in harm’s way to loft a reality check on the status quo and it’s faith based ideology which prohibits the development of the sharing of resources equally among all people.

      3) Presentation was far reaching and in fact caused to be manifest the hostility of the status quo what ideology was effectively challenged by this individual’s work.

      4) The impact of this individual’s work is sustained in revealing an attitude of hostility and hatred engendered by people of a certain faith who have no tolerance for those whom are considered below them, Christians and Mormons.

    Many schools are getting text books from a Muslim owned manufacturing firm. Operated under the the Muslim Brotherhood. This has been going on for years and the indoctrination has been slow but steady. They offer textz just a little than others and have gradually taken over most of the business. The purchasing department of many school districts are more interested in money than content. This is how most of this communist crap has permeated our education system.

    This scum though should be tied to a post with these books piled around and burned HOWEVER that’s not for us -Jesus will deal with this. The people must demand this class cancelled the teacher fired and those books destroyed. If this is not done then all participants and administrators are guilty and will be held liable.

    Why do you think the “government” wants to steal our weapons??? Does no one remember Hitler, Stalin, and Mao? One of the first things those three MURDERERS and dictators did was steal all weapons from all civilians. Once they did that they were free to begin to MURDER all who disobeyed, refused to comply, or even disagreed.

    So why do you think it CAN”T happen here when it happened in “enlightened” societies in Europe, the very same societies that Ovomit admires?

    The time for talk is over. The time for “asking” our elected SERPENTS pretty please is over. The time to restore our Constitutional Republic is here. If We the People do nothing, America is finished. The options are few and they are all ugly but the cost of doing nothing is much worse, at least to those of us who believe in God and our Constitution.

    A very brave Patriot once said “I know not what course others may take but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” I now know what drove him to make such a dramatic statement, and I pray more Americans will soon come to the same conclusion.

    I don’t care if it was part of a textbook assignment. It was/is wrong. I agree with Susan Leach. Have that professor write mohammed on a piece of paper and do the same exercise. You’ll have the ACLU all over you!

    I am without religion but even so, I think this is going way too far. We all know Mohammed would have never been the assignment. It’s annoying to see Christian bashing left and right (not Jewish or Muslim). It’s like they are intentionally trying to take away religious and family values in America. This is not an isolated case. The media, Hollywood and schools are all doing a great job.

  • Mark

    The professor would probably be fired if Allah was the name written on the paper, or Muslims might negate the need for him being fired. Just another example of anti-Christian bigotry. The professor should have been fired instead of the student being punished.

    Teaching something and is one thing, but exercizing an offensive act to teach is quite a different story. To require a student to violate a religeous conviction just to teach a concept is totally wrong. Something like this is called indoctrination not education.

Time for taxpayers to stop funding this kind of insulting action from our “elite” centers of “higher learning”.

    • coastx

      Jesus is a myth modeled on Horus. This myth was invented by the council of Nicaea as part of a change process through which the Roman emperor was transformed to a Pope, the idea being to refocus an otherwise diffuse polytheistic culture to one of monotheism, the product of which was Christianity.

      Roman leadership knew religion motivated people and figured out how to use this to control them. It worked. Rome didn’t fall. It reinvented itself through statist Christianity.

      People don’t have a divine right to statism or any other political organization that predisposes one individual to rule over another. In this regard Christianity is a racketeering scheme, and in the hands of the Mormon church Fabian mission creep in the proliferation of black mass eugenics.

      That’s not to say Christianity didn’t improve itself via preliterate acculturation. In fact, once the bible went into mass production and the Masons lofted on the wizardry of the King of England, Christianity subsequently evolved a conscience in the form of the Protestant reformation WITH THE HELP OF THE MASONS AKA G7R in direct contravention of G7E, the latter the sexualized/Satanized Masons that are the negative core of the Fabian movement in the US.

      While Jesus is a myth, in the hands of G7R it is too powerful to control by it’s creators, which is why G7E decommissioned the New Testament via Pope Benedict in November 2012. If it survives, it’ll be G7R that makes this happen, albeit people will also slowly be awakened to the idea that Jesus is in fact a solar deity myth principled on Horus, the difference between this new concept and the old being the understanding that the planets and every life form that inhabit them are in fact a creation of the Divine and not the will of Nicaea or it’s Fabian presentation exclusively.

  • nam_vet6869

    The young man should be proud, he stood for his beliefs. The professor should be reprimanded but it already shows the leadership of the University is behind the exercise so nothing will happen. If I were an alumnus of the University I would with hold any more money until the student was reinstated and the course cancelled, as well as any other anti religious course taught. Susan Leach I agree with you and you will never see that happen. Maybe Christians need to go back to days of the Crusades.

    Personally I would have cold cocked the POS, no one said he had to believe, pray or other

    stomp on something let him try it with Allah, Mohammad or some other deity that hold
    value to religious groups. I have the feeling he would be in fired and in hiding for a very
    long time.

    Nazi training in our schools-except it is Christian principles being trampled on-but you must embrace islam. BS to the max. I would have told the instructor right then and there, in the classroom that it was not right. I would have said, put your mothers name on the piece of paper and then stomp on it. make it personal to these liberals and then the light comes on. I cannot believe that is an actual textbook exercise in “Intercultural Communication: A Contextual Approach, 5th Edition.” if it is about communication-you don’t stomp to talk to people you talk to them. how ridiculous. this is what is wrong with our universities they are doing away with God and Jesus yet loving islam. in turn confusing all the youngsters.

    I am not a religious person but that would offend me as it would anyone of any faith. Jesus would probably have forgiven and maybe so should man in his example. But the “teacher” should have known better than to be “teaching” disrespect for any religion. Even if the text book tells you to do this. It is wrong! What ever happened to common sense? The college should be questioning their curriculum and their teachers.

    RECOMMENDATION FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL CITIZEN’S MEDAL

    It is recommended that someone carry this forward to the White House as a nomination for the Presidential Citizen’s Medal on behalf of:

    Deandre Poole, VC, Palm Beach CDP
    Professor, Florida Atlantic University

    Mr. Poole has:

    1) pressed a lasting impact on challenging the status quo mentality of supremacy of a race and a religion which promotes a highly volatile and reactionary ideology,

    2) knowingly placed himself in harm’s way to loft a reality check on the status quo and it’s faith based ideology which prohibits the development of the sharing of resources equally among all people,

    3) conducted appropriate and correct education far reaching which in fact caused to be manifest the hostility of the status quo what ideology was effectively challenged by this individual’s work, and

    4) sustained his dignity against sweeping retaliation for revealing an attitude of hostility, hatred and prejudice engendered by people of a certain faith who have no tolerance for those whom are considered below them, White Christians, and in particular the Mormon community.

    Rotela got suspended because he went to a school official and complained about the assignment on the basis that it offended his religious convictions? I guess none of the other non-stompers complained, since he seems to be the only one suspended. Good for him.

    Why did the student get suspended? Religion and everything else aside, if the student didn’t complete the assignment, give him a zero.

    I have done a little research and have found the synopsis from the text book that details the exercise itself

    “Have the students write the name JESUS in big letters on a piece of paper Ask the students to stand up and put the paper on the floor in front of them with the name facing up. Ask the students to think about it for a moment. After a brief period of silence instruct them to step on the paper. Most will hesitate. Ask why they can’t step on the paper. Discuss the importance of symbols in culture.”

    It is apparent from the exact wording that the students are meant to get to the point of hesitation and then discuss why they hesitated and what symbols and sacredness mean in culture. The problem here is that the professor sucks at his job and didn’t stop but tried to force his students to stomp on the name of their god. When stories like this break it’s common for some people to blame academia and say that colleges are out to destroy people’s faith or some such thing. Incidents like this are atypical and for a textbook to actually demand that students defile the name of a religious figure would be even more atypical. The reality is that this textbook had a somewhat poorly thought out exercise in it and the professor handled it very, very badly. In follow up stories it has also come to light that the college has since apologized to the student, will no longer allow that exercise to be done, and has denied having suspended anybody(they might have though).

    I have never in my life. Who in their right mind would even use this as a class activity. I am so offended by this action.

    I think the disrespectful attude to Christiantity is appalling but I think theres also a much darker lesson ,I do not think that the the religion of the student is the important issue ,the fact is that they refused to do something because they felt it was moraly wrong and were punished for it.wether right or wrong they were recorded as having christian belifes and should therefore have been within their rights to refuse to do something which could be seen as offensive,the lesson the class learned was stand up for what you belive in and get punished for it .It also seems an extreemly flawed syllabus if it cant see this might have been a problem ,,I would also suggest some muslims would not have performed this excerise either as Jesus is an honoured prophet in their religion.
