TX Prof. Resigns, Then Asks for Job Back, After Muslim Students Complain He Called Islam a 'Cult'
by Billy Hallowell
A college professor in Dallas, Texas, has resigned under pressure following controversial in-class remarks he made about Islam. Prior to his departure, Paul Derengowski, a philosophy teacher at Tarrant County College, had instructed a few philosophy and religion courses at the local college.
Two Muslim students who were in one of these courses apparently went to college administrators to complain about commentary and instruction that they found immensely offensive. The students claimed that Derengowski called Islam a cult and that he had posted "inflammatory" images on his web site.
Below, see a screen shot of his site (Islam, among other faith systems, is listed as a "cult"):
