Comment on LSU leaves out key facts by Ron Stone M.D..
Eddie, Since I have been one of the major critics of our so-called leaders, I will again invite them to come online and, in a public forum, defend their inaction, ineptitude, and avoidance of responsibility. Anyone available? I don’t think so. All we get are PR statements which avoid the real issues.

LSU leaves out key facts
Sean, Please explain how “plain” is “outlandish.” That was my question. The “toned down” posts are the only ones Shane allows to be kept, so I let him decide how “toned” I need to be. I feel that I’m actually being “too kind” to many of our leaders, since I’ve not posted (by their own requests!) many of the actual comments and statements sent to me by the individuals I’ve been criticizing. They, obviously, don’t want the real facts and their own words to be publicized. Why? I think all of us know why!
LSU leaves out key facts
Sean, Please explain what you mean by “outlandish” comments. I have plainly stated facts and named names, which is exactly what Shane and others have done on this site. I happen to “expand” the blame to others, as Shane does not appear to believe that the problem is more than a few Bio Profs at LSU.
The problem we have at LSU is a very SMALL tip of the iceberg in our SDA Church. I think you and Shane also know this. Maybe you just want to address the “small issue” here, but I believe we need to get to the real root problem, which is the taking over of our Church and SDA institutions by liberal humanists, as we have seen done at LSU, but by no means limited to LSU. The problem is mainly concentrate here in the Pacific Union Conference, but exists in other areas as well.
But, you are correct, Shane has deleted the majority of my comments.

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.
