Comments: Wycliffe Hall: Principal on ‘leave of absence’

Very sad for him.
Can this Hall survive with such a deficit?

Apparently Turnbull's crows are coming home to roost. Incidentally, the photograph illustrating the Conger piece shows Turnbull addressing the John Jay Institute. Seems he is on the right-wing "think tank's" Advisory Council, where he is listed immediately below Kenneth Starr, the guy who hounded Bill Clinton as special prosecutor in the Lewinsky business - http://www.johnjayinstitute.org/about-us/advisory-council/). Interesting connection.

Incidentally, Dr Turnbull's address to the Jay Institute last September made a point of which the American Right could well take note - http://www.johnjayinstitute.org/resources/events/compassion-and-conservatism-lord-shaftesbury-as-a-model-for-faith-and-polit/

Did he jump or was he pushed? Rev Vibert is of the same ilk, if not more hardline than the Principal, is he not?

Peter Ould on Anglicans Unscripted seems to think the move was preciitated by the fact that Wycliffe has only 7 ordinands coming up in October...all men. Any comments?
