Comment on LA SIERRA: Four resign after recording emerges by Ron Stone M.D..
BobRyan: The Bible talks about those who set nets and traps for others â€“ being caught in their own nets.Some Bible readers will find those texts instructive.in Christ,Bob
Bob, if you’ve heard the tape, you will realize that’s EXACTLY what happened!
Ron Stone M.D. Also Commented
Steve Billiter: Ron, I guess that Tony just names his poison that he likes. What does he say about gayâ€™s who do contemplative prayer? Is he trapped?
Not sure, but he IS one of the greatest “sellouts” in Christianity. which is why the progressives in our SDA Church love him!
LA SIERRA: Four resign after recording emerges
@Steve Billiter, Campolo (along with his wife) is also one of the most vocal “gay marriage” and “gay is A-OK” proponents in America.
Faithful Disciple: Adventist Kid, what is more disingenous and lacking integrity than an professor signing a contract agreeing to support and protect the interests of the SDA church in the classroom and in their lifestyle, and then doing the opposite?
I agree. Not only a professor, but a Dean, Vice President, and a member of the Board. Listen to the tape and hear how just about every segment of our SDA Church in North America is attacked.
The worst was mentioning three other SDA colleges and making a statement, complete with vulgarity, to address how they felt about a certain one.

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 â€œthough the heavens fall,â€ 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 donâ€™t know what the procedure is. Iâ€™ve read what the process is in the faculty handbook, but I donâ€™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.Iâ€™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.
My Goal for La Sierra University
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.
Bradley, Beach and Kaatz retain attorney
How about a “class action” suit against anyone and everyone who has heard the tape or has heard OF the tape?
