Comment on LSU statement regarding resignations and Bradley’s email by Shane Hilde.

@Ron Nielsen: I’ve been thinking about this some more, I think I agree with you. I suppose technically LSU could claim it didn’t have anything to do with it, but if you look at the subject of Jackson and Blackmer’s meeting with LSU, I assume it had to do with the biology issue, perhaps the ensuing conversation had to do with similar topics.

I think a strong connection can be made, but LSU is claiming a technical, which initually I was going for.

It’s an ignorant comment. Not even worth arguing over.

BobRyan: It is very interesting that the four in question were instantly aware of the problem of that audio getting out to the board – to the point of resigning and yet we have some here who still do not understand the gravity of the problem EVEN when they hear the audio!

Jeff’s commentary on the recordings just doesn’t match up with the reaction of the individuals recorded or board.

Are seriously to believe that the four chose to resign over alcohol? No. Their concern was over what was on the recording. Bradley was retiring soon so his resignation probably didn’t have as much of a career impact as the other three, well except for the board member.

One wrong act? Do you really believe he was just experimenting? This is the guy who said when asked if he was a practicing Adventist, he said “On record, yes. You can read into that whatever you want.”

Private Recorded Conversation Prompts La Sierra Resignations

Ron&#32Stone&#32M&#46D&#46: then he “accidentally” recorded the private meeting, right?

That’s exactly right. He must have not bothered to play it back. I think the meeting was a couple hours according to the LSU news release. But basically he didn’t know he had recorded him and the others and then posted it without checking his recording.

Eddie: Doesn’t LSU’s administration deserve at least a little bit of credit?

I think so. There are some very dedicated individuals on the board.I have no doubt they’re doing everything they can to address this issue.

Blasphemy of a Different Kind
@Ron Stone M.D.: I agree. LSU has not been a shining light for our church. That’s unfortunate. That might be the case for other schools as well.

Former board member never talked with biology faculty
@Alexander Carpenter: I would readily agree since Educate Truth supports the biblical account of creation and disagrees with the handling of the topic in the biology department. This was a political move by Wisbey to gain power on the board. He now has three less who oppose him.

Former board member never talked with biology faculty
@David Read: Board members and even former board members are not allowed to discuss what has happened in board meetings. The only thing I confirmed with Tooma was whether she had conversed with the biology faculty and she made it very clear she never had. She was only presented with the joint statement and wanted to support it. This statement was seen as a big step for the biology department because Wisbey had been keeping them silent for over two years and they were now making constructive advances to dialogue with the church. I disagree with what they said, but I think it’s great their talking now. I suspect Wisbey isn’t happy with the biology department. It wouldn’t make any sense for him to only be upset with the board members since he allegedly embraces what they are doing. Doubtful though given his reaction and double standard.
