WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Baptist Blogger announced today a unilateral publication cease fire with the administration, faculty, staff, and trustees of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
“After a nearly ten-year hiatus, we resumed publication one year ago this week with an open letter to former SWBTS President Paige Patterson requesting an end to the embargo of a 2006 chapel sermon by Arlington pastor Wm. Dwight McKissic.
Over the course of the months that followed, we have disclosed factual information concerning Southwestern Seminary under the Patterson regime, including details of financial irregularities, abuse cover-up, and institutional mismanagement. With the election of Dr. Adam Greenway as the ninth president of Southwestern Seminary, The Baptist Blogger is hopeful these and other matters will be thoroughly investigated, publicly disclosed, and systematically resolved in an appropriate manner.
Therefore, we will suspend until after the next Southwestern trustee meeting (Apr. 8-10) the publication of any information, commentary, or analysis regarding the Fort Worth school to afford its new president the opportunity to make substantive and necessary institutional changes. We trust these changes will be reported as they occur, whenever appropriate, to the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention.”

Wait, does that mean that IF the trustess do not make public the truth about the actual financial and other matters at SWBTS by the April trustee meeting, then you WILL continue to be our truth-seeker and teller?
Do we have a BINGO?
I lost hope when the first action of the new administration was to appoint a Provost that will make sure the DNA of CBMW perseveres.
Thank goodness! A little peace and quiet.
