SOME PEOPLE, INCLUDING STUDENTS WHO HAVE WANDERED INTO MY OPINION SECTION OUT OF CURIOSITY, FIND MY OPINIONS HIGHLY OFFENSIVE BECAUSE I CHALLENGE BIGOTRY, RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM, AND RIGHT-WING IDEOLOGY. IT ALSO APPEARS THAT MY OPINIONS CAN BE DISMISSED BECAUSE I AM A JEW <lol>.
Here is a complaint I received in a faculty evaluation by a student in my QM213 class, where a link in NUoodle points directly to the free statistics textbook for the course:
"I do wish the website I had to find my textbook on did not have articles bashing the bible. For example the article attempting to bash the bible was using the book of Leviticus which is Jewish customs from before the coming of Christ. After the coming of Christ those customs are no longer relevant as our sins can be forgiven. Many arguments made against the bible in the papers on the website are poorly done. It is obvious to tell that the Bible is being bashed without a significant understanding of the Bible. I just am not a fan of incorrect articles and a paper advocating the killing of babies being on the same website where I get my textbook. At least the professor did not bring these view [SIC] up in class, I must give him credit for that."
