Overall, the whole thing sounds very sad and even disgraceful.

Sounds to me that the CCCU has some serious internal problems and that Mr. Edward O. Blews Jr. ruffled some archaic feathers. It is a shame that the board is so entrenched in its backwards and Un-Christ like behavior that they would jeopardize a man's reputation and put their own lively hood on the chopping block. Sounds like the CCCU is an unsound Christian doctrinal organization to work for. Hope that the CCCU has its financials in order. Those things that are hidden in the dark shall be made known in the light of truth
