Professor fails student for refusing to 'condemn Christianity', conform to views on Marxism and Feminism

Rebel Staff

A student at Polk State College has been accused of failing a student after she refused to conform to his personal views on Marxism, Atheism, Feminism, and homosexuality.

A press release by Liberty Counsel states the organization has asked the dean to investigate humanities professor Lance "L.J." Russum and his curriculum.

The student, who only goes by GL, gave four straight zeros because she refused to conform to his personal worldviews. And refused to concede that Christianity was false, violent, or oppressive to women.

Questions for his class included “Why did Christianity, and its male gods, seek to silence [nuns]”.

For instructions he wrote, “I DO NOT want you to write about how wonderful you
think Christianity is now because women can do A, B, or C. History is history and facts are facts and your opinion on if it is better now or not is irrelevant for this discussion.”

Liberty Counsel also references how Russum's personal Facebook pictures include Jesus Christ and Fidel Castro making obscene gestures.

Could you imagine of the professor had asked Muslim students to condemn Islam?

Good comments…idiotic professor…but @ Joan is right here "If the course is a history course and the student refuses to cite history, I don’t blame the professor for the zero marks. But if the student adequately cites history but explains it from a perspective favourable to Christianity, there is no reason for a zero. "

…all you other commenters make a lot of excellent points too…third party marking is a great idea…we didn’t have it in my schools but it would have really helped…in cases like this, at least and @ Bill Elder your summary is concise and right on.

Grumpy, Islam considers the father, the son and the holy ghost to be three gods. They misunderstand the miracle of the god in three persons Holy Trinity. They claim it is proof that Christianity is polytheist and its faithful deserving of death for offending the one true god with idolatry. They claim Jesus is a Muslim. I wish Muslims would spend as much time and effort to understand other religions as they do to try to make us all understand (ie, submit to) theirs.

This story is one of those I’d like to review all the evidence of before I judge. Because even in today’s age,if true, it is extreme and unacceptable and this professor will be required to rescind those grades.

If the course is a history course and the student refuses to cite history, I don’t blame the professor for the zero marks. But if the student adequately cites history but explains it from a perspective favourable to Christianity, there is no reason for a zero.

If the facts stated are true and the only relevant evidence, the dean will overturn the bad marks and assure the student the incident won’t be held against her in future.

I am sure some muslims, like Canada’s own Athar Khan, would readily condemn Islam in writing. But Khan is unusually enlightened and courageous.

Marxism dogmatism makes tiny men big, weak men strong, stupid men wise and immoral men absolution – in their own minds. Another practitioner of inverted morality who deserves to be kicked to the curb so he can play handball against it.

I agree, papers should be marked by a qualified 3rd party. Take the power away from these freaks!

This sort of stuff has been around for years here in this country. In high school a teacher tried the same trick on me as I didn’t agree with his political views. And that was a long time back and the teacher was not a Mohammedan but someone from the old Yugoslavia.

Oh and on the subject of religion…get this straight….oops..get this GLBT…my bad…..Gaia the man hating Earth Goddess is going to punish the evil penisoids from Mars for gang raping HER……David Suzuki is the Ayatollah of this New Age religion.

Permitting any professor to mark their own student’s work is fundamentally a corrupt arrangement. Essentially you are granting that professor the right to write their own performance evaluation. It also has been shown to be a chronic source of students blackmailing for marks with false allegations and for quid pro quo marks for sexual favours .

The cure…have student papers marked by anonymous third parties and submitted anonamously.

Why are so many people surprised? Anti-Theists are the majority of the leaders and professors in most Western Universities.

Oh bother – another Marxism, Atheism, Feminism, anti-Christianity, pro-islamic terrorism, Orwellian PIG Lance “L.J.” Russum.

And this is what the lefty PIGS want – no Christianity and they use islamic terrorists as pawns to make this happen. What also happens to PIGS like Lance “L.J.” Russum, is things like this often blow up in their face.

“male gods”??

So called enlightened homosexual atheist professors or political leaders like to pick on Christianity because it is a religion based on love thy neighbor or turn the other cheek and so they will less likely get smacked upside the head with their bs. But they dare not insult islam lest they get their head cut off.
Currently, the attacks on Christianity are way beyond sickening especially with the massive Christian genocide in the middle east and north Africa. Pay back time is long past due. This poor excuse of a teacher and human being is guilty of bigotry and hate mongering towards Christians. He should be reprimanded, then fired and his ability to teach should be revoked for 5 years.

The Professor is a Muslim? Sounds like one.

I don’t know about the "professor’s’ political views, but his spelling, grammar, writing and pedagogical style are appalling. He should be turfed on the basis of those alone.

“Could you imagine of the professor had asked Muslim students to condemn Islam?” He most certainly would have been brutally beheaded by now.

GL should sue the living frick out of the college.
