Poll: Seminary Student Controversy


FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Controversy is brewing at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where a Muslim student has been allowed to enroll in the school’s archaeology program.
Some students are upset that a Muslim student has been admitted to a school that requires a “mature Christian character.”
Seminary president Paige Patterson released this statement:
“For several years, Southwestern Seminary has operated a dig at Tel Gezer in Israel. During that time we have been joined in the effort by around 20 of our own students and about 60 students from secular schools and religious schools. We have had both Israelis and Muslims.
One of these young men from a Muslim background loved our people and asked to study with us. He accepted the necessity of abiding by our moral code of conduct. He is a man of peace, and we agreed to admit him into the archeology program.”

 

What do you think about non-Christians being allowed to study at the seminary?
