Lorne Scharneberg, chairman of Cedarville University’s Board of Trustees, has admitted to alumnus Bob Gresh that the firing of Carl Ruby and the elimination of the philosophy major were ideologically motivated decisions. You might remember Scharneberg from the Christianity Today article about Carl Ruby’s ‘resignation.’ He denied that Ruby underwent a fall hearing–in direct contradiction to statements made by Ruby and others. Scharneberg has ties to the fundamentalist General Association of Regular Baptists (GARBC). As I reported for Save Our OBU, GARBC severed its ties with the university in 2006 because of Cedarville’s ‘liberal’ direction. Check Save Our OBU tomorrow for the next instalment in my Cedarville series.
