Click here to read the entire legal document concerning the LJ_Russum lawsuit due to teaching methods that are dishonest and biased-_Evidence_of_Discrimination.pdf. It is well worth reading in full.
A right wing legal organization has filed a lawsuit against a far left wing teacher at a Florida higher education scam school. Like many such schools, the teachers are poorly trained and sometimes barely literate. In this court case, the teacher is a rabid communist, using his own definition of who he is, and he strove to teach young people all about ‘humanism’ which is horrifying since one of the least humanist ideologies on earth has been ‘communism’. Traditional liberalism is the dying offshoot of humanism. Humanism is a philosophy that elevated the human soul to the heights of the Gods. Communism elevates despotic, cruel, inhuman dictators into Gods while the rest of humanity is reduced to near zero status.
I read the entire pdf file in this case from top to bottom and since I studied German philosophers of the 19th and 20th centuries way back in 1967-1970 starting off doing this at the tender age of 16, I was fascinated by the crude, vicious professor and this young girl who is a mirror for myself back then. The topics she and her teacher were debating is one that I know very intimately indeed, in great detail.
The student, I feel, won all the points of this debate based on her extensive information. This professor, Mr. Russum, has the oddest and sometimes totally fraudulent beliefs about many well-documented issues which verge on the insane when it comes to Martin Luther of German Protestant fame. I was raised a Lutheran and I studied his writings, in German, extensively. This professor claims that Luther was a ‘humanist’ during the fading days of the Italian Renaissance.
Luther’s rise to fame was due to his declaration of war against the corrupt Medici Popes and the other corrupt Popes that followed them. He also took advantage of a tool created in Germany: the modern (versus Medieval or old Roman) printing revolution. He translated the Bible into German, for example, which the Popes forbade and for which many a scribe had been burned at the stake across Europe. But Martin Luther was a very conservative man who deplored nearly all of the efforts of the humanists in Italy and was horrified by the artwork in particular.
Professor fails student for refusing to condemn her Christian faith: Florida Professor Bullies Christian Student
Polk County, FL – A sixteen-year-old, dual-enrolled student, “G.L.,” is the subject of religious intolerance by humanities professor Lance “L.J.” Russum at Polk State College in Lakeland, Florida. Liberty Counsel has asked the dean to investigate the professor and his curriculum.
G.L. and her parents reached out to Liberty Counsel when Russum gave her four (4) straight zeros because she refused to conform to his personal worldviews of Marxism, Atheism or “Anti-theism”, Feminism, and homosexuality. Professor Russum expressed blatant and pervasive anti-Christian bias throughout the class, such as the following essay question: “Why did Christianity, and its male gods, seek to silence these women [the nuns]?”
In other essays where G.L. refused to concede that Christianity was false, violent, or oppressive to women; that Martin Luther’s motivations for the Reformation were wholly secular; and that Michalengelo’s sculptures and paintings communicated that “same-sex relationship is NOT A SIN,” Mr. Russum gave her a total of four straight zeros.
Michalengelo’s artwork was riddled with sexual imagery that was quite blatant. The erotic nature of these works were not missed by dissenting priests who couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw what the Popes had bought to decorate the center of Christianity. These very great works of art were extraordinarily divisive and blew apart the entire church once and forever.
“The point of this is not to ‘bash’ any religion, we should NEVER favor one over another, they all come from the same source, HUMAN IMAGINATION and [sic] they demonstrate that humanity is one,” a copy of Russum’s class outline, riddled with grammatical errors, says.
“We have much to thank of [sic] humans like Michelangelo who took a sacred space, a temple to god, and made it a HUMAN space, a space where humanism can meet with god and discourse,” one course assignment read. “Finally humanity and the gods are on equal footing and that is what the myths of Hercules, Apollo and Jesus are all about—the divine becoming human and human being divine.”
The humanists of Italy were either brutally murdered or persecuted or committed suicide or suffered very negatively in the wake of all this and foreign invaders marched on Rome and all of Italy and took over while the Medici married off a daughter to the King of France where she sponsored ethnic and religious cleansing and riots and this is exactly how my Pettit Paris ancestors ended up in the New World after being forced out of France due to being Protestants.
Now on to the New Anti-humanists, professor Russum: Press Release | Liberty Counsel has all the details.
“WHAT YOU MUST NOT WRITE ABOUT: 1. This is NOT about Luther’s theology
“2. Any quotes from his sermons or writings MUST be about humanism and how the reformation is in the right place and right time in history NOT some divine providence of the gods
“3. You must stay focused on the history of the humanism of Luther and his reformation IF You turn this into a theological debate or divine providence I will NOT read it and you will be given a zero.”
This refusal to read anything except parrot points confirming the bizarre views of this ill-informed professor is a sign of a closed mind and giving this young lady ‘zero’ for her hard work is typical Stalinism. Anti-thoughts, verboten disputes, the crushing of any contrary ideas is pure Maoism. The professor claims to admire Mao, after all. Here is a sample of his ability to write coherently:
Point #1: ‘What is something Lady Julian is saying/doing’ is a clunker of a sentence. ‘What is Lady Julian either saying or doing’ is a much more coherent beginning to this sentence.
Point #2: ‘From the article on the Nuns what makes their defiance of male dominance so important?’ This should be, ‘From the article ‘The Nuns’, what makes their defiance of male dominance so important?’ Any name of any publication is to be put in parentheses.
Point #3: ‘Why did Christianity, and its male gods, want to silence these women?’ This sentence like the one about the Nuns above, is poorly punctuated, too. Here is the correct form: ‘Why did Christianity and it’s male gods, want to silence these women?’ This ‘professor’ seems to feel that the comma is a random device to be strewn hither and yon with no regard to proper usage.
#4: For the reading on the Nuns…is riddled with errors. The teacher warns everyone to ignore the original questions that go with the reading material and to replace these with his ill-written, illiterate insertions. The young lady suing him took him to task on this issue. Here is the final paragraphs of her paper she wrote about ‘The Nuns’. She refers to the three questions of the professor which made little sense:
The five questions the student who is suing is referring to are the original ones that went with the text assigned by the teacher. The teacher wrote in huge capital letters that students were forbidden to even refer to these much clearly written and on topic questions and instead, write screeds based on his own biases instead.
This is a great way to learn how to write garbage for dictators. A terrible way to teach young people how to write clearly and stay on topic. Throughout the documents, the professor looks horrible and the young lady looks sane. Yes, she is a devout Christian but her debate points are quite mature and need a sane rebuttal. I doubt this ‘professor’ could do this.
Then there is this racist, vicious woman who is black who was hired to teach ‘Black Studies’ in Boston that made big news: Boston University’s Saida Grundy apologizes after critical comments on white men. Her writings were not ‘critical’. They were racist, Nazi-level screeds.
‘I regret that my personal passion about issues surrounding these events led me to speak about them indelicately,’ she said in a statement. ‘I deprived them of the nuance and complexity that such subjects always deserve.’ A Boston University professor who called ‘white college males’ a ‘problem population’ has said she regrets making the remarks.
College students sing nasty ditties in private are then kicked out of school and attacked and humiliated. A black professor female does much worse and she is a teacher!…and the University mouths some platitudes and hires her anyways. The right has good reasons to call blacks on double standards and ‘liberal’ schools are turned into sewers when slime like this gets to educate our youths. This disgusts me greatly. I have people comment here who say very disagreeable things and I chide them about this but when blacks demand ethnic cleansing, this is one wish they will certainly get in the future if this sort of dangerous talk continues.
