Comment on Catholic School Fires Math Teacher for Expressing Atheistic Views by Ron Stone M.D..

Pastor Paulsen, The words “uphold our faith and teachings” means something different to “progressive” adventists. It means “reinterpreting” our beliefs to conform to the modern world’s view of whatever we are discussing.

But, you are correct, even the Catholics are “miles ahead” of LSU in defending their faith in their own institutions.

Maybe I’m missing the intended target of this quote. But it sounds like you are talking to the the Educate Truth moderators/staff and those who support them. I hope not, because that would be a silly accusation.  (Quote)

You haven’t missed the target. Prof is speaking to the staff and US! He doesn’t like us exposing LSU and its humanistic philosophies. He’d better get used to it!

Yes Sean, “another social club with a religious twist” is exactly what LSU has turned into. It appears that the LSU administration has already decided that’s what LSU will be or already IS!

Well stated Sean. Prof Kent’s idea that we should ask the faculty members to “please be a good little boy” for our Church’s sake is not going to happen. They and LSU have already “hunkered down” and are ready to fight…

My Goal for La Sierra University

The reason the LaSierra situation has gone uncorrected so long is that most of our administrators have exactly the sort of political instincts that Dan Jackson has. They are politicians and consensus builders; they want to keep the peace and make the trains run on time. But the circumstances call for men of principle, hard men who are willing to stand for the right “though the heavens fall,” i.e., regardless who is offended and loudly complains.

Dave, I agree with you. Jackson’s trying to play on “both teams” is not going to go well for him.

Unfortunately, politics is the “SOP” of many of our SDA officials, Jackson being just one. “Political instincts” are the rule, instead of actually doing what is “right” according to what we know in God’s Word.

Shane Hilde: Think big fish: LSU or the Seventh-day Adventist Church.Graham might not have followed procedure with these men, but I don’t know what the procedure is. I’ve read what the process is in the faculty handbook, but I don’t know if that applies to administrative positions which are at will employees. If it does apply to them, then it appears the process was not followed.

Trustees book says, in 6,9,F, that the Trustes may “discontinue” virtually anyone working at the university.

Does that mean to “fire” or to “force their resignation? Seems like it does.

GMF: If what has been reported about Jackson is correct it is very troubling. Also, one can only wonder why he was selected as the NAD President.I’ve seen a thing or two which made me wonder about Jackson but this report, if true, has to be the worst. May the Good Lord help us!

Jackson was selected to replace Don Schneider, who was also very “passive” in his approach to this problem.

Besides telling Wisbey to “love Jesus” Jackson did virtually nothing.

Sean, Great summary and analysis of the current situation. Another good review of this matter is in the Jan-March 2011 Elders Journal. It also goes into the 2004 evaluation and recommendations, as you have quoted.

How about a “class action” suit against anyone and everyone who has heard the tape or has heard OF the tape?
