Comment on La Sierra University Looking for New Biology Professor by Sybil.

Although we would expect this, to see it in writing (and in practice) is greatly encouraging!

“La Sierra University is a religiously-qualified Equal Opportunity Employer with the right to prefer Seventh-day Adventists in hiring. In the event that a qualified Seventh-day Adventist is not available to fill a position in the University, preference will be given to applicants of other faiths who have religious beliefs compatible with those of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and who support the published mission of the University.”

LSU Board says ‘we apologize’
So the biology professors will continue to teach under a new level of restraint? There is an old saying that “one convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.” Religious resolve would seem to dictate true repentance and sorrow by cleaning house after their discovery interviews with students. What is the value of a soul when their findings conclude some left religion altogether after sitting at the feet of some of these professors? Do Wisby and Graham sigh and cry over that? Will someone in authority over that institution seek them out in an effort to apologize, ask for their forgiveness and attempt to regain them?
