    Jerome, "MBTS" stands for Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary here in Kansas City. I see no reference to it in your linked lawsuit, nor do I see any other entity for which MBTS could be an acronym. What is your reference?

    She apparently has three different profiles on linked-in ...

    http://www.linkedin.com/pub/dir/Nancy/Dietsch

    Linked-in isn't responsible for content. She obviously felt reluctant to post the MBTS education at some point. We don't know why, but she does list "Graduate Theological Foundation" on all three profiles, which describes itself as "a nonprofit, interreligious institution of higher learning centered in Mishawaka, Indiana." http://www.gtfeducation.org/

    Tell me why you would pick out a questionable reference to MBTS on a potentially dishonest or at least iincomplete linked-in account, and not mention this obviously more culpable "institute of higher learning" that is on all three of her "professional" accounts?

    This is a Baptist forum we post about Baptist things.

    Of all people these Baptist chaplain trainees should not have to endure this from a Baptist seminary grad.

    Blaming the seminary is the wrong approach. It isn't the responsibility of the seminary for what someone who graduated 35 years ago is teaching/saying/preaching/doing now, is it?

    If someone argues that, why don't you ask them then. . .

    Bizarre.

    Nothing bizarre about it. You used the title of a thread to highlight an SBC seminary as somehow responsible for the behavior and theology of someone who graduated from that seminary 35 years ago, and posted a link that doesn't even mention the seminary.

    If you ask me or anyone else here, that's what is "bizarre."

    :confused:

    Please take this thread as it was intended, not as it's being twisted.

    Long ago, it was a held standard that schools of higher learning would withdraw the institution's declaration of a graduate who did not hold to what that institution considered fundamental to granting the rights of a graduate.

    I don't know a higher educational institution that would take such action in this time.

    I do know that every graduating class of BJU is charged with taking over the school, dismantling the school staff, and taking what ever action necessary to make certain the school ceased, should the school violate the founding Scriptures it was established upon.

    Somewhere in the back of my mind, I recall Baylor recalling the rights of a graduate many many decades ago(remember they were more strict that BJU back in the day), but my memory is far too faded to recall any specifics just shade and shadow of long ago, the traces long covered.
