    What's their complaint? Is this something other than the Charismatic pattern?

    Mixed reactions tonight in Tulsa:

    e.g.
    Anyone holding their breath on where the Board of Regents stands? What a hoot, foxes living in the loft of the henhouse. Maybe this'll put the brakes on this major engine of the Charismatic industry.

    I am saddened to see this occur. :tear:

    It gives a black eye to all Christian educational institutions, unfortunately, for those looking for an excuse.

    I do wonder why this is in the "Baptist colleges / Seminaries" forum, though? Although I cannot think of a more appropriate forum, aside from maybe "Current Events".

    Moderator's Note

    I'm willing to grant a little lattitude, as we do discuss other Christian institutions from time to time. However, Ed is right: ORU is not Baptist, and this forum is designed for Baptist seminaries. But leniency is allowed, so long as it's not taken for granted.

    As you were :thumbs:

    My apologies for putting this in the wrong forum. Wasn't even thinking.

    I knew it was wrong from the beginning, but Tom Butler put me up to it. I wouldn't have contributed to the thread if he hadn't started it :tear:

    I hope the mods will close this thread, since another one has been started in the News/Current Events category. Please go to the other thread to post.
