Christian Student SUSPENDED For Challenging Muslim Professor's Claim That Jesus Wasn't Crucified

A student at Rollins College has said he was suspended for challenging his Muslim professor over a claim they made that Jesus was NOT crucified. Twenty-year-old Marshall Polston, a sophomore at the Florida-based college, said that the professor of his Middle Eastern Humanities class also told students that Jesus’ disciples did not believe he was God.

“Honestly, it reminded me of some of the more radical groups I researched when abroad,” Polston told the Central Florida Post about his professor’s comments on Jesus. “Whether religious or not, I believe even those with limited knowledge of Christianity can agree that according to the text, Jesus was crucified and his followers did believe he was divine… that he was ‘God,’” he continued. “Regardless, to assert the contrary as academic fact is not supported by the evidence.”

“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.”
