Comment on General Biology Seminar 111A to be revised by Ron Stone M.D..
Jonathan Taylor, You’re absolutely correct that nothing substantial will come from Graham and the Boards’ “adjustments.” More than worthless adjustments are needed, but this will not be coming from Graham, the Board, the SECC, or the Pacific Union Conference.

Does anyone have a clear picture as to how we can remove the Board and President at La Sierra? This should be our primary goal if they refuse to dismiss these instructors!! (Quote)
I completely second this idea, and the sooner the better!
I am shocked that LSUâ€™s Chairman Graham thinks that revising the Biology course material is the solution to the problem. How shallow is that type of thinking!!! Surely the course material is a reflection of the thinking of the author and therefore, the problem is the courseâ€™s author. Surely he see that. If not, there is no hope for LSU without a total change in LSU admin. starting from the board chairman down. (Quote)
Graham is a politician par excellent, so he and the Board will do nothing, unless they are forced (as backs against the wall!) as they are a major part of the LSU problem. They have allowed this problem, as well as others, to continue on without any response. As such, I personally see no hope unless Wisbey and others at LSU are removed along with Graham and the present Board. We can see they are completely incompetent.

Richard Myers, I will also not remain quiet, despite Shane’s constant censorship of my posts!

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.

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?
