Following Weeks Of Controversy, The Southern Baptist Seminary President's Paige Patterson, 15-year Tenure Has Officially Come To An End.
Y'all I saw this coming from miles away. Following 13-hour trustee meeting, Southwestern Seminary trustees appoint Paige Patterson president emeritus effective immediately. Following a month in a media firestorm after his comments on abused women surfaced.
After a 13-hour meeting on Tuesday that stretched into the early hours of the next morning, the seminary’s trustees made a few announcements in minutes, including Patterson’s new position and that the interim president would be offered to Jeffrey Bingham, dean of the seminary’s school of theology. Patterson was not in the final meeting when this was announced.
The meeting also addressed two other points that came out of the Patterson controversy. While the trustees met on Tuesday, The Washington Post published an article alleging that Patterson told a woman who said she’d been raped not to report it to police and to forgive her assailant.
