Reader Dr. Paige Patterson and his wife Dorothy, nearing retirement as President and First Lady of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, are having their retirement home built on the seminary property. The decision by the Executive Committee of Southwestern Theological Seminary's trustees to allow the Patterson's to live out their retirement years on the grounds of SWBTS needs to be questioned by the messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention for many reasons. (You can read those reasons here).
Many right wing Christians in different comment sections on line are scratching their heads and questioning the controversial decision that was made in secret to allow the Patterson's to live on the campus after retirement. One commenter said the entire issue sure does makes Southern Baptist Convention appear to be corrupt, scheming, and guilty of cronyism. How in the world could leaders of a religious institution based on The Word of God get so caught up in such ungodly behavior?
