The ANN Highlights LSU’s Dr. Lee Grismer – An Evolutionary Biologist

LSU Alum: They are made up my human’s and to think someone’s character is based on there legalism according to EGW’s rules is ridiculous.

Seventh-day Adventists believe otherwise. There is ample evidence from scripture about alcohol.

Whether you believe it’s a sin or not though really doesn’t matter. LSU has a policy that states employees are not to drink alcohol.They were aware of it, and it appears did it habitually. As leaders at one of our instituations they were clearly in violation of their contract and received just action.

God’s grace does not = leaving people in positions of leadership who are undermining truth.

Professor Kent: I expect you to be oblivious to all of this because these individuals know that dialogue with those who are judgmental, fault-finding, and devoid of charity (i.e. EducateTruthers) is a fruitless endeavor.

You can blame Educate Truth all you want, but the reality is you’re just pointing the finger at the site who blew the whistle on the institution with a problem. This would never have happened had it not been for LSU undermining the church in its classrooms.

La Sierra has created an atmosphere of suspicion amongst all our biology departments. They’ve effectively ruined their reputation in the Adventist church, and cast doubt on other institutions.

Professor Kent: Do you seriously believe that the average faithful SDA biologist would want to be employed by a denomination that assumes you are a heretic until proven otherwise, and will engage in unfettered and reckless character assasination at the slightest opportunity?

These biologists at LSU assassinated their own character by remaining at an institution they were undermining. They were being dishonest and essentially stealing from parents who thought their kids were receiving an Adventist education. They robbed us, and the administration is party to it.

Your ludicrous accusations are the equivalent to blaming the shopper who identified a store employee slipping cash into their pocket from the register for all the problems the employee is going through.

A little-known history about Belief 6
@Eddie: The Bible does not specify an age of accountability (to my knowledge), but the Israelites considered the age of 12 to be the turning point. I wouldn’t base a theology off of tradition though. Also, it’s not our place to judge what happens to those who have not been able to make a decision.

At La Sierra, Biology Faculty Affirms Importance of Teaching About Creation in Curriculum
@David Read: And perhaps not something Christ would do. I can understand your frustration though. I’ve been on the verge of quitting this whole thing many times. I’ve been guilty of letting that frustration control and influence things I shouldn’t have said.

I have to remind myself to look at the big picture. In the end all those who are not supposed to be in the church will be sifted out. I pray I am not one of them.

Board of Trustees Addresses Curriculum Proposal
I know from talking to a couple of reporters from Press Enterprise and Inside Higher Ed that Randal Wisbey was effective in shutting down communication between any outsiders and the biology faculty. It appears he made himself the only channel of communication between the board and biology faculty.

I emailed Larry Becker about what bylaw the board members broke that was worthy of dismissal, and I have yet to hear a response from him.

I would also note that board members at other universities appear to be free to talk to the faculty.

Another interesting point. He removes three board members for trying to work on the problem and come up with a solution, and then turns around sort of embraces what they’re doing. He can’t publicly condemn it because everyone can see, whether you agree with what they wrote or not, that it’s a significant step for the faculty to be speaking to the church.

Did he forbid the document from being published? No. If you’re really excited about seeing the biology department making advancements in solving the issue, why are you removing the people who are making that happen. He never did anything like that.

What has Wisbey done to address and fix this issue? Nothing. He’s dragged it out, lied about what’s been happening, and told everyone involved to shut up or get in trouble. What on earth is he trying to do?

Who knows, he might even be a part of the underground movement to sever LSU from the church by using WASC as the big hammer. It’s obvious from one former board member, there was interest in using WASC to manipulate the situation.
