  1. I mentioned this on another site:

    It is interesting that in the asking for dismisal for the fraud charge the seminary says that President Patterson’s verbal guarantee “lacks sufficient definition” under Texas law. Again I think we can see that this admnistration is content to hide behind the parameters of the law to satisfy their personal preferences. If, as Dr. Klouda contends, Dr. Patterson did say to her that she had nothing to worry about insofar as losing her position than that is fraud, or lying to her.

    Also Van McClain is quoted as saying this: “I do not know of any women teaching in any of the SBC seminaries presently in the area of theology or biblical languages.” I wonder how different the School of Education is at SWBTS and why they, who are training pastors, are different from the school of theology?

    The reality is that though the women who have taught in the Education School do teach educational practice, there is an element of theological education that goes on in those classrooms. How is that different from what happens in a Hebrew classroom?

    A few examples of women teaching in the School of Education Ministries at Southwestern (all of which are fine instructors and I have no problem with them instructing):

    Dr. Esther Diaz-Bolet http://www.swbts.edu/faculty/ediazbolet/
    Karen Kennemur http://www.swbts.edu/faculty/kkennemur/
    Dr. Margaret Lawson http://www.swbts.edu/faculty/mlawson/
    Marcia McQuitty http://www.swbts.edu/faculty/mmcquitty/
    Dr. Terri Stoval http://www.swbts.edu/faculty/tstovall/
    Dr. Dana Wicker http://www.swbts.edu/faculty/dwicker/

    I don’t understand the obvious “double standard” because as I see it, theological education is going on in Price Hall just as in Scarborough Hall at SWBTS.
