Comment on LSU, Pacific Union Conference and North American Division Sued by Holly Pham.
Bob Pickle: Even though Kaatz, Beach, and Bradley have asked you to? They filed a lawsuit, and lawsuits are generally public affairs. Thus, it sounds to me as if these three want anyone interested to listen to them.Now perhaps they want you to wait until after discovery is completed. Or perhaps they hope to settle before then so that everything can be super secret and hush hush.But really, if they wanted to ensure that the recordings donâ€™t get listened to by more and more people, they should never have sued.
Are we going to post the recording so all can hear what these men said. It will be very enlightening because so many said nothing of any concern was on them. According to California law, the recording was not illegal.
I think most will be very concerned and even shocked at what these men said specifically about President Wisbey, President Graham, President Jackson, Larry Blackmer, several members of the La Sierra board, and even some other SDA schools.

I will ask this question again. Since the tape was not illegal according to California law, why is it illegal to actual read, publish, or discuss it?
Why donâ€™t you simply accept reality, rejoice in it, AND MOVE ON to something more productive â€” like maybe something that God may want each of us to be doing with our lives to actually help spread His message of love and redemption to a fallen world . . .
Although I am a neophyte in the law, I can read the law, and it says “intentionally” thus I believe the recording is not illegal. Anyone with a different view may give their interpretation if they wish. But, so far, nobody has given a different interpretation.
I am also doing what you say we should do–helping spread the Gospel over the world. I can do both at the same time.
Please be sure that I will not be moving on, as I am being very productive in what I am doing here and in other places.
Jim: Holly said:â€œI hope the tape is released . . . I believe it will be an embarrassment to La Sierra and to the La Sierra Board, who hired them.â€Iâ€™m pretty sure this is exactly the approach Jesus would have you take . . . yikes, you show such a loving, redemptive spirit towards fellow fallen humans and church institutions. (By the way, each of the three individuals has served LSU for a minimum of 30 years or more . . . no one serving on the LSU Board had anything to do with their hiring; at least try to get your facts straight.)Unlike you (and a few others), Shane has realized the very real potential legal jeopardy involved in publishing any aspect of the recording, in either written or audio form. Why do you think he quickly pulled the information from his website once he received professional legal advice?For yet one more time, the contents of the recording are NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, even if you inappropriately tried to make it your business by listening because of your own prurient interests. The situation is being handled by those who actually should be dealing with it, even if some of the actions taken so far have been less than ideal.
I believe the information on the tape should be the business of all churchmembers who have an interest in how La Sierra is being run. Why don’t you want the information heard? It’s because it is extremely embarrassing to all who have supported the liberals at La Sierra.
If you don’t want to listen, that’s fine with me. Just let the rest of us gain the facts and truth about what this situation is all about.
