So Paige Patterson is now President Emeritus at @swbts.
It’s a sad day in @sbc land, as the trustees merely expedited his retirement and gave him all the benefits, including another title (Theologian in Residence) and a free place to live for the rest of his life.
Their decision is less than a slap on the wrist for his tasteless, irresponsible remarks, and possible criminal behavior (from his time at SEBTS). The trustees’ vote says a great deal about their devotion to Patterson as opposed to their devotion to Jesus and the SBC (and common decency!).
If only the @sbc would rescind their invitation for him to preach at next month’s annual meeting…. (But I’m not holding my breath).
God, forgive us as a denomination! Extend your grace and mercy as we are so undeserving!
