Comment on WASC Reviews LSU’s Accreditation by Holly Pham.

Holly Pham: Can someone explain something to me? Did President Graham act independently, on his own, or with the Board’s permission, when he fired the individuals?

I asked this question last week. Doesn’t anyone know? I’m confused by the reports on this matter. It seems important to the matter regarding the WASC debate.

Bob Pickle: LSU stated:So what does that mean? That means that the WASC wants LSU to operate independently of the denomination. “Institutional autonomy.” And the WASC is concerned about how many church leaders and/or members are on the board, it appears.

Does anyone know of any documented examples of a Christian College that has actually been de-certified because they defended their Christian beliefs by firing someone?

There seems to be a lot of concern about this, but is it really something that has happened before. There a lots of Christian colleges.

calvin: Hello,I am a Seventy-day Adventist who happened to stumble over this site a couple months ago. I have one question. Really, what are you fighting over?Isn’t there a better way to deal with the issues that you (all) seem so torn over?

Calvin, Please tell us how you would deal with the problems at La Sierra. Shane and Sean are doing a great job, but maybe you can tell us how to do better?

David Read: Bill, you go too far when you say that the official church endorses Spectrum Magazine or its website. It doesn’t, and I imagine that Clifford Goldstein isn’t the only one at GC headquarters who is horrified by some of the things Spectrum publishes.

David, If the general conference is horrified at Spectrum, why do they allow them to have a booth to continue to damage our church? I think Mr. Sorensen is correct in his statement.

Cliff Goldstein may want to say more, but is being held back by those above him. I do believe he has been a great defender of adventism, as you say, over on Spectrum and on his TV show.

@Sean Pitman, I agree with the lack of transparency at LLU and virtually anywhere in our SDA system. The hiding behind closed doors is rampant, not only at LLU, but on the Conference level, Union, and even the GC. Try to ask anybody a really specific question. All you get is either nothing or another set of vague responses. Try it some time, and you will see what I mean.

Any insiders know WHY this happened? Was it part of a “deal” with AAA for accreditation?
