In Grand Rapids, Michigan, Christian Reformed. From “Calvin College Professor Claims Administration Not Truthful Over Colleague’s Resignation” (Christian Post, August 17, 2011), we learn:
A Calvin College professor claims that college administrators are being dishonest about the forced resignation of one of his colleagues over issues related to evolution and scriptural interpretation.
In a statement to the Grand Rapids Press, Calvin College, a liberal arts college in Grand Rapids, Mich., said that John Schneider, professor of religion at Calvin College for 25 years, “chose to request retirement on terms that reflected his love and respect for the college, the faculty, and the students, and his desire that his scholarship not cause harm or distraction. The college, with appreciation and respect for Professor Schneider’s many contributions and faithful service as a scholar and teacher, agreed to grant such retirement as of June 30, 2011.”
“All of that is false,” Professor Dan Harlow told The Christian Post. Schneider did not leave on amicable terms, as the college is claiming.
Vocal Darwin supporter Steve Matheson has left too:
Harlow thinks it could be related to the controversy surrounding him and Schneider. Harlow says he has no idea of what really happened, but “in print and on campus [Matheson] was the most vocal and strident critic of our president, provost and college administration for their botching of this whole affair.”
This was the kind of thing.
