After eighteen months of non-stop controversy, Robert Sloan has agreed to step aside as President of Baylor University. Both Sloan and the Regents agreed that his stepping down would be best for Baylor.
No Mainstream Baptist that I know has been pleased to see internal divisions and dissension at one of our flagship institutions. Thanks to Dr. Sloan for humbly removing himself as one element of conflict.
Hopefully this will give the Board of Regents and the faculty a fresh start that will enable them to work together and move forward with the work of God's Kindgom.
