Stephen Jones Comments on Chuck Phelps Scandal in New Article: “It’s really old news”

In a new Greenville Journal article, Stephen Jones comments on the recent scandal involving BJU-affiliated pastor Chuck Phelps, calling it “Really old news.”

Controversy again surfaced in 2011 with the resignation of Dr. Chuck Phelps, a board member who was the target of a petition for removal due to the way he handled allegations that a church member raped a 15-year-old girl in his congregation.

“It’s really old news,” Jones said. “It was something we went through and tried to handle as biblically as we could. And I think it was resolved.”

    A six month old issue is “really old news”?

    Someone needs to tell him that it is a violation of SACS policy for him to mention publicly that he’s attempting to receive accreditation from them. He could lose it based on that alone. I seriously doubt they’ll ever receive accreditation from any legitimate organization.
