'Bullying' found in government social work course
An independent report on the School of Social Work at Missouri State University says officials there bullied students by creating "an atmosphere where the Code of Ethics is used in order to coerce students into certain belief systems," documenting allegations made by a Christian student who was penalized under the system.

As WND reported late last year, Missouri State social work professor Frank G. Kauffman was placed on leave as part of a settlement of a lawsuit brought on behalf of student Emily Brooker.

She refused his assignment to lobby for homosexual adoptions because it violated her religious beliefs, and then was brought up on ethics charges within the program's system. Her lawsuit, handled by The Alliance Defense Fund, was settled quickly by the school with the leave of absence as well as monetary damages and a removal from her record of the charges against her. ...

Thanks again Wayne. I just listened to the webcast. The piece majored on the alleged bullying of pastors by members of the church, and failed to adequately address biblical accountability (unsurprising as it seemed to deal mainly with liberal churches).

I suspect that your own case of privately holding the pastor to biblical account over ecumenism could be interpreted as "bullying" by such pastors and journalists.

I watched as my own previous "pastor", his "deacon", and the "pastor"'s brother-in-law (a "pastor" in another church in supposed biblical oversight) bypassed all biblical process and set out to bully a Christian brother out of the church. They had explicitly agreed there were no grounds for a biblical charge of church discipline.

Their gloves off pastoring and process of Matthew 18'ing was the ecclesiastical equivalent of "You know when you've been Tango'd".

Needless to say, my former “pastor” was very quick to publicly accuse me of bullying when my turn soon came to wise up and refuse relentless demands to meet with him and his "deacon". (In fact, I had invited him to meet with me with any man from the church except for just two men.)

Such bullying is often much closer to home than we think. Yes, Diotrophes is still with us today. Heartbreaking.

Thank you for the heads up, Wayne. Remains to be seen what CBC's take is on this though of course.

I see The Current has a webcast available:
The Current

I was very sorry to read on another thread that you suffered from an abuse of the church office of pastor and deacons when you stood against sin in the church.
Christ loves the victims of Diotrophes.

CBC Radio has a program tomorrow morning I hope to listen to about bullying, even in cyberspace and church.

"Thursday, April 12, 2007, 8:30 a.m.

It’s a problem in schoolyards, the workplace, even in cyberspace. Bullying knows no boundaries – not even, it turns out, in places of worship. This morning, The Current steps into the Church - to learn why some are praying for a solution to bullying in the congregation."

Quote: "It appears that faculty have no history of intellectual discussion/debate. Rather, differing opinions are taken personally and often result in inappropriate discourse"

Not like Christians, right?

What an amazing result! I hope Emily answered the questions if she thought homosexuals were sinners.
