Comment on Schneider talks about La Sierra by Ron Stone M.D..

Sure Schneider got “applause!” He said absolutely nothing that would even hint he had any backbone to do something about the problems we are discussing here. That’s exactly what LSU wants to hear! Next up on the podium–Ricardo Graham? He’ll get even MORE applause!

Schneider talks about La Sierra
The term “love” as it is used at LSU [edit] means coddling to [error] to the point that most are afraid to even talk about any problems. Just “stay close to Jesus” as Don Schneider stated. What a cop-out! When are we going to get some leaders out here in California? [edit]

Schneider talks about La Sierra
Leaders who claim they “did not know” of anything should be removed. This type of rationalizing of “ignorance” is pathetic. It’s their duty TO KNOW what is going on, and they should be in a position, either personally or by a representative who reports to them, TO KNOW!

Schneider talks about La Sierra
Sounds like we ought to be exceedingly GLAD Schneider isn’t the President of LSU! We might have the Pope as Chairman of the Religion Department!

My Goal for La Sierra University

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 “though the heavens fall,” 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 don’t know what the procedure is. I’ve read what the process is in the faculty handbook, but I don’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.I’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?
