Comment on LSU promotes acceptance of homosexuality but not creation by Ron Stone M.D..
Shane, What are we waiting for? The Board will do nothing, and we all know it. More avoidance and closeting! Why? Because they are a major part of the problem.

I am very glad you and the staff at EducateTruth have chosen the best way the church at large can be informed. Enough is enough. Elijah, Christ, Paul, and many other believers had to do the same thing and suffer ridicule and absurd insults.We have a saying we often quote in the Navy, â€œbad news does not get better with time.â€Again, thanks.
James, I agree that “enough is enough” but secular humanistic thought is well rooted out here in the Pacific Union Conference. It has many supporters, not only at LSU, but at LLU, PUC, and throughout the conference offices.
The Central California Conference, with Jerry Page as President, however, does not seem to be following the worldly crowd. It has, so far, been an island of hope to many out here.
James Rodriguez says:
â€œI believe that LSU and possibly Loma Linda have had professors teaching or â€œinfluencingâ€ students for YEARS on theistic evolutionâ€.
Chaplain Rodriguez, unfortunately your observation is true. I was a graduate student at Loma Linda in the late 80â€™s and my wife was a pre-nursing student at the La Sierra campus that time and she was exposed to this erroneous teaching.
You’re absolutely correct, James. However, it goes back even further. Dave Larsen (Religion Prof at LLU) was promoting his liberal, humanistic philosophy back in the 70’s when I was at LLU medical school. I don’t know when he started, but the problems we have at LSU, LLU, and other places go back many decades.
LSU promotes acceptance of homosexuality but not creation
Rich, I don’t think you were off topic at all. The article describes the root cause of WHY this website is here–secular humanism infiltrating our SDA instutions and churches. The “promotion” of evolution as fact and “gay is good” are both related and show the deep-rooted problems well rooted at LSU and other SDA institutions.

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?
