Comment on WASC Reviews LSU’s Accreditation by Greg.

Faith: When I referred to the scientific community, it was in response to the fact that people like Pauluc have been stating that the scientific community–their peers– have judged that Creation is not scientific and therefore Pauluc and his cronies reject the science of Creation based on this judgement. Do you understand what I am getting at? They are taking the opinions of mere men over the “thus saith the Lord” in the Bible and SOP. That is my objection to the “scientific community” argument.

Fair enough. I can agree with you on this. I definately think “thus saith the Lord” comes ahead of science. If Pauluc rejects creationism, then that is unfortunate.

I take it you are opposed to the Adventist Health System and our medical school at Loma Linda. I learned the other day that Loma Linda has a pharmacy program now. I suppose Ellen White said that there would never be legitimate medications that could treat organic disease?

Ervin Taylor, I don’t think you have any business commenting on things here. No one pays much attention to your mini rants.

Faith: Personally, I don’t give a hoot if you have lost all respect for me. I speak the truth, whether it is to your liking or not.

Methinks you hold yourself in too high esteem.

Let me make something clear. Sean Pitman deserves nothing but praise for bringing this website to us. I did’nt mean to dis him. As a scientist and medical practictioner he has won my respect. I’m just shocked that Faith, who until this point was very reasonable, has shown disrespect toward the medical profession. I’m a product of Southern’s biology program and they teach with utmost respect for science and medicine (though the teaching itself isn’t very good). If Faith is saying that LSU should discard evidence based medicine from their teachings then she is clearly delusional.

Thank you, Sean. A voice of reason. Well stated.

Bill Sorensen: It is pure selfishness to demand “your rights” under civil law when you are working for God and His kingdom.

Then it’s okay for a church to screw its employees. Churches are exempt from applicable laws. Churches are excused when they abuse and mistreat their employees.

What kind of Christianity is this? Where do you people come from? I think you’re a bunch of nutcases!

Look people, it’s okay to fire professors and I think they should be fired if they were teaching against the church or breaking the rules of employment (which the filing brings to question). If you’re going to fire them though, you just have to do it properly and abide by the university’s policies and the rules of the land. This is not a difficult concept to understand.

I don’t want to be misunderstand. I don’t object to the firings if they were justified (I don’t know what was on the recordings). I just object to the way they were fired (breaking the law or not) and the way the situation was handled. As a church we can do better. Much better. We should pray for our leaders.

Bill Sorensen: This is the nature of socialism when it wants to subject every power or influence and bring it under the control of the government. All in the name of defending the individual. When in fact, it is for the purpose of total subjection of all powers.

Your views of our government are extreme. You come across as paranoid and spellbound by conspiracy theories.

The more time I spend here the more disappointed I am with the extreme views of those who post. I thought this was supposed to be about creation and evolution, yet people delve into all sorts of nonsense about medicine causing cancer, political correctness, government conspiracies, and outright lies about the beliefs of others (like the jerk who called me a theistic evolutionist for no reason whatsoever).

Faith: Greg: You have totally lost the fundamental problem here in your quest to be politically correct.
The church is not at fault here.

Faith, this is not about political correctness. This is about the law. Plain and simple. Do you not understand the distinction?

If you can’t fire people while abiding by the law of the land, you can’t fire them. If laws were broken, you can’t just say the church is within its rights. Obviously it must be held accountable.

Perhaps we’ll learn yet the church was in the right, but from all appearances the church’s administrators were in the wrong. It looks like a jury may decide this. I am seriously troubled when church members like you defend an institution and individuals breaking the law and say its within their rights to do so. Jesus himself condemned it.
