It may have been an ugly turn of event, but for Marshall Polston, a win is a win.

Polston, a second-year student at Rollins College, was re-instated from his suspension for challenging his Muslim professor on her assertion that Jesus’s crucifixion was a hoax and his divinity was not recognized by the disciples.

Polston, who’s a Christian and conservative, spoke to Red Alert Politics on Wednesday after his case was reviewed by the administration and said he felt “pretty good” with how it went.

The Central Florida Post obtained a copy of Rollins’ official re-instatement letter indicating that Polston was “Not Responsible” for any of the charges levied against him, including physical, mental, and verbal abuse as well as his behavior.

Kenneth Lewis, an attorney representing Polston, released a statement praising the school for their decision to overturn his suspension.

“A student’s freedom of speech and expression are the cornerstones of liberty in a free society,” Lewis’s statement read. “Teachers and students must always remain free to inquire, to study and to evaluate, and to gain maturity and understanding; otherwise our civilization will stagnate and die.”
