Save Our Shorter wishes to make clear its policy on posting comments to articles posted here. The purpose of this website is two-fold.
It was created to allow departing faculty, staff and students as well as supporters of the Shorter that we knew prior to the Dowless administration and the Fundamentalist take-over to have a place to give voice to their disappointment and opposition, because the current administration refused true dialog with them.
It was also created to shed light on the incidents that brought the changes espoused by the current administration to fruition. Our intent is to speak to the issues at hand as well as to relate those moves by the Georgia Baptist Convention Fundamentalists which brought us to this place. Much more will be posted on the issues in the coming weeks.
In the past few days, we have received comments to be posted which reveal the darker side of the Fundamentalist movement. Individuals with no knowledge of the players in this tragedy have attacked or attempted to attack faculty, staff students and alumni in a manner that is unacceptable.
Those individuals submitting comments are as follows:
I think it’s uplifting that dozens of un-Christian blasphemers are leaving a Christian university that is standing up for God’s Word instead of man’s.

It is sad to see you go, but then as a parent of a prospective student…I am glad to see those who should “know better” to leave. Practice your overt moral decline elsewhere.
While your empassioned diatribe drips with the sentimentality of a life and career of a wandering, as well as wondering existentialist, it is a shame to see such a committment to the fallacy of a religion that has an appearance of godliness but denies the power of Truth.
I believe Shorter University has been done a great service by your departure and I am thankful that the students will no longer be subject to such an inaccurate representation of Christianity.
Any more comments of this type will not be approved for publication and the poster’s comments will be identified as spam and deleted.
If you wish to denigrate Shorter faculty, staff, students, alumni or friends, please feel free to start your own webpage.
