If she wants us to believe her she must stop using blatantly communist terms such as collective andlean forward.
Hey, Fox News or Glenn Beck … maybe you could counter these propaganda spots with a spot about individual responsibility to care for our own kids as Jesus Christ taught, not through corrupt government (which Jesus Christ did not condone) but through getting off our behinds and going out into the communities in which we live and give our time in service.
Beck has spoken more than once about individule responsibilities,but going into the communities and trying to preach whats right and wrong wont fix it. Our founding fathers tried that with the british.....

Isn’t this grounds for court marshal??

These are fascist tactics … silence anyone who does not agree with progressive/communist ideologies. They are the most intolerant group of people I have ever witnessed. I have been mourning the loss of our country’s Constitution and values since obama was first elected. Now I see mourning for the loss of the most robust, bad-ass Army in the world. I watched Hannity’s special the other night with a panel of conservative Black Americans. They were inspiring as they talked about how they are attacked by the progressives for being Black conservatives and how they fight back. This is what we have to do so save our country. We must be as tenacious as these radical progressives.

I refuse to call him the “Easter” bunny.

Those poor cops having to stand behind obama and listen to all that b.s. Look at their miserable faces.
“Every day that we wait to do something about it, even more of our fellow citizens are stolen from our lives by a bullet from a gun” … and a knife, and a hammer, and an ice pick, and a baseball bat, and a shovel ….. So ridiculous and obvious what is going on …. progressive/communist politics.
right. one day the cops are going to have to choose sides. we the people or serve the new amerika and el presidente for life that guy.

INSANITY! Repeating old behavior and expecting different results. Or in the case of obama and his comrades, still trying to destroy capitalism through any means possible and at the expense of the ignorants who believe he is acting for their good.
April 3, 2013 at 6:27pm
I don’t trust that obama’s gesture is altruistic, he’s all about appearances. Anyway, his coffers are fed by other sources in addition to his very cushy presidential salary and his worth is in the millions. What difference will the measly amount of $1600 per month make against the sequester cuts? What a joke!
April 3, 2013 at 6:22pm
This guy is either a liar or he felt forced to follow a progressive/communist/atheistic curriculum. I am a Christian and I walk a narrow path. It is not easy because of worldly distractions, confusion, depravity and pressure against Christianity everywhere we look. But I would no sooner show disrespect for my Savior than I would cut off my right arm. Something isn’t right with this man’s story.
He should have had them write the name allah or moohamed, and then asked that class to step on their names.
He may be religious but he is not much of a Christian.
He is very religous...active in the church of satan, like all liberal trash.
I'm calling Uncle B.S. on this one......"very religious"......sure you are...
How many Nazis would tell you they were deeply religious as they were following instructions to exterminate the Jewish people? People that will blindly follow instructions without using good judgement are probably the most dangerous people to be around. Especially, those that claim to be deeply religious while blindly doing everything commanded in a teaching manual. Teaching obligations will always trump loyalty to God and Jesus in the end. If this man would have realized his obligations to Christ first........the exercise would have been ignored, no threat would have occurred, and therefore he would still be teaching at school. He just made a bad choice......it was, unfortunately.....to blindly follow instructions. Instructions that told him to conduct an excercise that certainly didn't match his so called deeply religious beliefs. You do not show honor to something like the name of Jesus by writing it on a piece of paper, putting it on the ground, and stepping on it. That is called dishonor no matter how you slice it.
If he went out and found a really huge stone, etched Jesus' name in it, and asked me to stand on it, I'd do that. "Stepping" on a piece of paper versus "stomping" though is a really lame copout, and carries a very different connotation -- rather than standing on a firm foundation, as he seems to be implying (but then why not just say that outright?), it comes across as asking people to disrespect Jesus in order to be "more sensitive" to anti-Christians. And saying that he's done it before is no good either.
We may never know what really happened, but given that he's admitting to at least part of it, he should have known better.
The American Taliban rears it's ugly head...
he should have the students write b.o. HUSSAIN and stomp on that........
Track him down and beat the crap out of him. It's time for action no more of this democrat America Christian hating. Make em scared to act the way they do these days.
KCINCO -- you are right, there is something wrong with the man's story; what's wrong is that the Blaze is, intentionally I suspect, leaving out vital details...
From the original article..."He had used the classroom activity before, and wasn't particularly worried about it. "I followed the directions from the instructor's guide," he said. The course at Florida Atlantic University was in intercultural communications, and the exercise involves having students write "Jesus" on a piece of paper, and then asking them to step on it. When they hesitate, the instructor has an opening to discuss symbols and their meaning."
"He noted that the idea behind the exercise isn't that students will actually step on Jesus, but that most will pause and that their discomfort sets off the discussion. He said he saw at least one student who did step on the paper, and talked about not feeling much of a connection to Jesus. But he said most didn't, and that was fine with him. No students, he said, were forced to do anything."
The point of the exercise was not to "stomp on Jesus" as was claimed, but rather about how we create symbols and how we behave towards those symbols.
In short, either the student grossly misunderstood the exercise or is a liar.
I thought the guy was being racist. Why is he picking on Latinos like that? Was Jesus the name of the guy who stole his girlfriend?
There are millions of ways of teaching the value of symbols that don't involve stomping on Jesus' name. I don't for a second believe that this guy is an actual Christian. He may be a Pseudo-Christian, like the Jeremiah Wright followers, or the Westboro Baptists, but there is nothing authentically Christian about him.
He is a democrat and obama supporter...LYING is listed as one of their vocational skills
"The point of the exercise was not to “stomp on Jesus” as was claimed, but rather about how we create symbols and how we behave towards those symbols."
You raised some good points and details, but just wanted to note here that we do not believe we created the symbol of Jesus' name, nor would any competent historian believe so. Jesus was named by his parents (Yeshua; 'Jesus' is the result of translations into other languages and then a Y to J shift to English which is the case for all other such terms and names, not something unique to Jesus or anything religious). And obviously we believe that was because God commanded them to do so, via a Messenger (angel), but nobody needs to accept that part to understand that the name Jesus is not an invented symbol.
Unless you just wanna make the case that all names are symbols for the people used for them, which is true. But then why not write down their -own- names? At least that could have been a lesson in humility rather than profound arrogance (I would step on my own name in a second. Seriously, I'm typing it in Notepad now, and putting my foot to the screen (I don't want to harm the laptop though :P). *there*
Aaanywho. Just felt that's an important point to make. Such a thing has no business being done "by book or by crook". So no matter how you slice it, it's bad.
I would have skipped this lesson or modified it. I wouldn't have tried to do this to Muslims or Buddihsts either for the same reasons I would refuse to step on the paper myself. The designers of the lesson didn't seem to think about the fact that many people take their religion very seriously even if the designers themselves do not. The point of the lesson could have been made in another way.
DOING HIS JOB???? Does the University's job handbook detail that insulting religion is a part of his job?
I cannot question his commitment to the Christial faith, only JESUS and his Father GOD ALMIGHTY can make that judgement. He could have found something other than Jesus to put on the paper like gay marriage or illegal imigration, both would have stirred controversy and discussion in his classroom.
If he leaves his teaching post at Florida Atlantic University, he can always find a post at Columbia University or Chicago University (Both have convicted Weather Underground bombers, anarchists and murderers on their staffs).
This guy is a liar you can't be Christian and ask any Christian to step on the name of Christ. The action in itself is sybolic of one thing and one thing only to desentize a Christian in their belief in Christ. Like Burning a flag was to kill the inbred patriotism and belief in America that citizens of that time held to their heart.
This professor can proclaim to be whatever he wants his actions tell a different story.
Kind of like the catholic priest who openly support a pro-gay marriage and pro- abortion president that even believes that children who survive abortion can still aborted. THEIR NO PRIEST AND THIS GUY IS NO CHRISTIAN
What these monster fail to understand is that being christian and catholic isn't about going to a church weekly.
Just like being American isn't just about being born in this country.
I just wrote "Allah" on a sheet of paper and stepped on it. I am going to take it to the bathroom later when I have to take a crap and crap on it. I don't care about acting "civil" and what would Jesus do and "don't go down to their level BS." First of all I am very civil, I don't blow up women and children because they disagree with my religious beliefs or protest and burn flags. I just crap on a piece of paper. I am not Jesus, therefore I don't have to act like Jesus. I set realistic goals and being like Jesus Christ is unattainable for any human, we can only aspire to be like him. Unlike Bloomberg, the Democratic party and most all liberals, I don't try to legislate, order or pass a law that someone can't do something because I don't like it. Do as I say, not as I do, the epitome of hypocrisy. I am sure the hundreds of thousands of innocent people killed by Muslims (notice I didn't use the work radical) wish they had just stepped on a piece of paper with Jesus's name on it or took it to the crapper to get rid of some sheep organs.

that shows you how out of touch CBS is with how people in this country really feel
April 2, 2013 at 10:59pm
I hope your daughter can think for herself and hasn’t been brainwashed.
I can't believe he hasn't been institutionalized! Who died and put him in charge of defining such things as what is racist or is not. Chrissy thinks he can make up all kinds of fun meanings and stuff. He needs to be put in a mental institution where they offer lots of crafts and arts and maybe even a fake tv studio for a fake tv talk show to keep him preoccupied. They can even tell him how good he's doing so he has that ring-a-ding feeling running up his leg.

Just another wimp lib, he can dish it out but he can’t take it. Another stupid hollywood type that I can boycott.
 January 26, 2013 at 11:13am
Too bad the rest of us who feel like Holtz don’t have Boehner’s and the other rinos’ attention. Maybe he’d get a clue about what’s going on in this country and get off his @#$% and get tough and fight back with the same ferocity that the progressives are. We ARE doomed if repubes don’t face the fact that they are behind the eight ball and sinking fast.
January 1, 2013 at 12:43am
You know, once a person starts dealing with the devil, satan takes care of his serpents. I may be at the mercy of radical progressives like clinton, but at least I my soul belongs to the Good Guy. Good luck, mrs. clinton. You’re going to need it when it comes time to meet your maker.
January 1, 2013 at 12:29am
how about progressive mouth control?
November 4, 2012 at 6:03pm
Yes, most Christians will change their name to barack “hussein” obama. Very Christian-sounding name, don’t you think?
I feel like I’m reading about Satan. I get sick to my stomach. He is a deceiver, a liar, and will do ANYTHING to get reelected so he can seize more control of the people of this country.
I agree I am freakin out wondering what the hell is coming our way I just hope i dont see satans face
October 20, 2012 at 6:56pm
There is nothing original or worth seeing that comes out of hollywood any longer, except Clint Eastwood movies!
October 20, 2012 at 6:51pm
Yeah, a higher calling to what? Finish the progressive job of turning this country into a communist country? Let us NOT forget what this man really is and where he came from. From the words of his own mouth, we see that he is a racist, enraged black muslim who does not believe in what this country stands for. VOTE him OUT in November!
October 7, 2012 at 10:53pm
Surprise, surprise, surprise!
October 7, 2012 at 10:41pm
I too observe body language and notice this with many of obama’s henchmen/women. There is no doubt there are innocent bystanders at the BLS. However, the hand of obama’s machine is very heavy and very deceitful. I do not doubt that someone got to the BLS.
