OVERRULED: BECKWITH TENURED!

Earlier this evening, Baylor University President John Lilley reversed the decision from last spring to deny Dr. Francis J. Beckwith tenure. Despite a second vote to deny him tenure by the tenure committee (though much closer this time than in the spring), President Lilley has overruled the tenure committee and granted Beckwith his much-deserved tenure.

The powers attempting to undermine Baylor as a Christian institute of higher education have been stopped. The efforts to deny freedom of speech, academia, and even thought have met their demise in this decision. I commend and thank President Lilley for making the right decision. This vital decision has kept a top scholar at Baylor and has kept Baylor on its 2012 vision.

Bravo! Why do Darwinists think that they can win by censorship of journals, by denying tenure and degrees, and other forms of pressure and persecution? A theory that can't tolerate debate has to be one in rapid decline.

That whole situation was ridiculous. I'm glad that Dr. Beckwith has finally been given his due. It's absolutely shameful that these things happen, especially at a Baptist university. Religious tolerance apparently comes into play only when it doesn't involve Christianity...
