That you brought it up at all assumes it was directed at me, otherwise there was no point in raising it... I am clearly no conservative Christian or evangelical. I'm glad we can at least agree on where these doctrinal statements exist in the academy and it would also seem we are both opposed to them, though perhaps for different reasons.It is those Evangelical and fundamentalist style of academies which I'm referring to. Specifically the dispensational Bible colleges. They typically have their professors agree to a doctoral statement which mimics or represents their perspectives.
So if by chance you were seminary is called an academy I can see where you would be offended. But I was just using your use of the word academy to apply to colleges and seminaries which I knew used this technique of agreeing to a set of doctrinal beliefs I also think that it occurs in Baptist spheres.
