http://www.abpnews.com/abpnews/story.cfm?newsId=3692 I'd especially like to hear BaptistBeliever's, KPBAP's, and ExxonMobil's thoughts on what is happening these days in Waco... I'm of the opinion that the real issue is ideological and concerns who will control "the long arm of Baylor" in Texas and how it should be used. I think the financial issues (tuition and debt) are being thrust to the forefront because they're the issues that are easiest to sell to mom and pop Baptist in the Texas pews. The opposition group is EXTREMELY vocal and has some big names behind it (in spirit if not publicaly) that include Reynolds, the Hiltons, former Regents Field, Wingo, etc. But are they still a just a (vocal and strong) minority voice? Or do they have a larger groundswell of support than many realize? Do you think the higher-profile moderate pastors (Park Cities, South Main, Tallowood, Westbury, FBCs Waco, Tyler, Abilene etc.) will get involved? If they come down on the side of supporting the "opposition group" then Sloan is likely toast. As a Baylor grad who was somewhat dissatisfied by Baylor's former direction, was somewhat amused at the irony surrounding Sloan's hire, and has enthusiastically welcomed the changes in chapel, hiring policies, etc., I for one would like to evaluate Sloans 10 year vision at the end of said ten years. Not 16 months into the process.
