Yesterday we reported that several professors from Concordia University Chicago (an institution of the LCMS) have signed a petition that supports William Ayers and his radical views on education. We called President Johnson yesterday to ask him to request that these signers recant thier position of support for the petition and Ayer’s radical views. President Johnson is out of the office for several days but we are under the impression that he received our message because we got a call back from his office within ten minutes after alerting them to the situation. His secretary called us back and asked for more information about the petition and where it could be found.
Since then we have not received a call back as to what action, if any, is being taken. There is also no news on the matter on the Concordia website. If you are concerned about this matter, you and the other 7,000+ readers of this website may want to contact Concordia and share your concerns with them. As we reported yesterday, support for William Ayers and his radical philosophy of education is not in keeping with a confessional Lutheran and Scriptural view of God, man and society.
