(FOXNEWSINSIDER) — A Florida Atlantic University professor who ordered his class to write the name ‘Jesus’ on pieces of paper and then stomp on it – will return to the classroom.

Deandre Poole had been placed on leave in March — not because of the assignment – but because of his personal safety. The university said he will only teach online courses for the time being due to security concerns. And the controversial course will no longer be taught.

FAU released a statement to the Palm Beach Post noting the decision “was made after careful thought, due diligence and input from students, faculty and administration.”
