Atheist Student Expelled After Challenging Woman’s Belief in Leprechauns

Bob Averill, a student at the Art Institute of Portland, claims he was expelled for being an atheist after he challenged a young woman’s belief in the ludicrous.

In the interest of bringing my own view to the discussion, I began to ask her how she knew these things. Again I know all too well that people can be sensitive about their spiritual beliefs, so I was pretty much walking on glass as I did so. The other student complained to the teacher, and Averill was eventually expelled — via Portland Mercury
