College Doubles Down in Support of Anti-Christian Humanities Professor Who Failed Student for Denying His Atheistic Worldview

Polk State College in Lakeland, Florida is doubling down in its support of a professor accused of discriminating against and giving failing grades to a 16 year-old virtual student in his Humanities course for defying his anti-Christian worldview in her essays.

Rachel Pleasant, the College’s director of communications, forwarded to Breitbart News the response of attorneys Donald H. Wilson and W.A. “Drew” Crawford of law firm Boswell & Dunlap in Bartow, Florida, which represents Polk State College.

In a letter addressed to attorneys Roger K. Gannam and Richard L. Mast of Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit law firm representing student Grace Lewis and her parents, Polk State’s attorneys wrote:

[T]he College affirmatively asserts that your allegation of discrimination is baseless, without merit, and absolutely lacking any factual support…Your entire letter, which is based upon this hollow and indefensible allegation, fails to acknowledge long-standing academic practice, and legally fails to establish any claim against either the College or its employee.
