    My wife has two young cousins who are devout Xians. They attend university... they complain that the college is not supportive of their beliefs. When you ask a few questions, you get this:

    Is there a chapel there for you? Yes

    Do people prevent you from attending that chapel? No

    What then is the issue?

    1. not everyone there believes what we believe

    2. we get taught things that aren't in agreement with our beliefs

     

    Then why not attend a Christian university?

    We want the opportunities that come from where we attend now

     

    It does not occur to them that the very openness of thought at their university is what creates the opportunities they seek. That if everyone was completely in agreement with their beliefs and they were never taught anything that contradicted those beliefs, the opportunities would vanish.

      That's not exactly what this is about.

    Oh that's right, the stupid wimp professor won't have students stomp on Prophet Muhammad because he thinks a radical Muslim will throw acid in his face or slash his throat when he's walking across the street.


    He was teaching a lesson on the importance of symbols in culture.  In the United States, a country that is 3/4 Christian, Jesus is an important symbol.  Mohammed, not so much.

      And it's probably a useful lesson but the way he went about it, and the institutions reaction, is all wrong.

      There are actually a slew of lessons there, for those willing to think about it. You know, rather than get all dogmatic.

      But one of the lessons the class learned, courtesy of that student, is that dogma is inflexible.

      Quite. Also, you'd think people who like to be the first to bang on about how much more tolerant they are than *those* *Muslims* would see it as a positive that they can be used as an example like this....

       

      Personally, when I teach the law on hate speech, my first resort is to use Christianity and criticism of it in examples for the simple reason that I am saying things about my own faith group. If my Muslim students wish to make hyptothetical attacks on their own faith for the purposes of discussion, they are welcome so to do. Generally they are very open, tolerant, and thoughtful kids who are really good at grasping the subtleties of the various arguments for and againt - the more devout they are, the more ready they are to consider the opposing viewpoint and deal with it articulately and without emotive nonsense. 

       

      None of us were there or know exactly how it went down. The professor could have been an ass. Equally, the student might have been one of those arrogant people who cannot brook the thought of another holding an opinion or belief that conflicts with his own. We don't know. For my money, IF the situation happened exatly as noted in the article, the student concerned's reluctance to comply with the instruction is exactly the reaction the exercise relies on to stimulate the discussion it seeks. In that case it is not the exercise which is at fault, but an apparent failure to apply it properly. Of course, we don't know how that student expressed his objection. It is entirely plausible the censure he faced was for the manner in which he expressed dissent rather than the fact he dissented. Of course, if you have a victim complex and wish to perpetuate a partisan slant on this, that's not information you will particularly require.

    It's absurd that this sort of disrespect towards people is tolerated and often encouraged in our society. The prof and exercise is every bit as disrespectful as what Fred Phelps church does.
