On Friday, I wrote to Dr. Poole asking why he didn’t invite his students to write the name “Obama” on a piece of paper—instead of “Jesus”—and then have them stomp on it. I also provided Poole’s e-mail address so that our subscribers could relay their concerns.
Later that day, Florida Atlantic University issued an apology. Included in the apology was a statement that no protesting student would suffer any sanctions. We are happy with the outcome, and we are grateful that our subscribers helped to generate it.
