A Letter from an Erskine Almnus

In case you missed it, the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees of Erskine voted last week 4-3 to not proceed with the lawsuit against the ARP. You would think that would be the end of the issue, but, in fact, the Erskine Alumni Association has apparently decided to take up the suit anyway. How they have any legal standing in this issue, I'm not sure, but they seem to think they do.

On that note, here is an excellent letter by an Erskine Alumnus named Drew Collins who is not in the ARP. Part of what he writes is (emphasis added):

It was with deep sadness and profound concern, then, that I learned of the decision of the Board of Trustees of the Erskine College Alumni Association, on behalf of the entire membership, to join in the action Erskine College-v-ARP Synod, unilaterally filed by Mr. Scott Mitchell, Esq., Chairman of the Board of Trustees -- an action that the Board of Trustees as a whole refused to join. Quite frankly, sir, I resent you speaking for me!
I encourage you to read the whole thing.
