This is in regard to “Evolution controversy at La Sierra” (Nov. 6). I find it sad and tragic that La Sierra University has taken a course that betrays its own constituents in a manner that is both hypocritical and lacking in integrity.
The university claims to be an “Adventist Christian” school, receives large sums of money from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and assures the parents of its students that they are getting a good “Adventist education,” yet it deliberately employs faculty who aggressively and overtly undermine and oppose this mission.
I am in no way a fan of Adventist fundamentalism, but ironically, the university has fueled fundamentalism in the church like no other force through its willingness to allow extreme liberals to run the school.
They have put other Seventh-day Adventist universities at risk and made them vulnerable to unnecessary witch hunts because of their own irresponsible and indefensible course of action.
It is my hope and prayer that the university’s board of trustees asks very hard questions and demands much-needed changes.
