Overheard on a Tyndale blog: "... why is Mr. Bush speaking on Christian higher education? So far as I am aware, all of Mr. Bush’s higher education was from private, secular American universities. He has no formal training in education theory..."
Ah, yes. The academy had done its job. You're either with us, or you have nothing to say. As I recall, Jesus and his main-guy Peter had no formal degrees either...
Meanwhile, here is a voice of sweet reason (which was not followed):
First of all, it sounds like a donor of Tyndale, Prem Watsa, is arranging and will be funding the breakfast (if you don’t know who Prem is, you may want to Google him). It’s very likely that Tyndale did not initiate this, and that Prem wanted to do this to bring awareness to Tyndale and Christian Higher Education among his colleagues and potential supporters in Toronto. Personally, I think it would be rude and irrational to turn down such a generous opportunity.Rude and irrational indeed. Way to go, "Amy".
