This is a very short video clip of a news report explaining Liberty's results of their "investigation" of Ergun Caner's public statements.
Washington Post Article on Caner Scandal
The statement from Liberty states:
"After a thorough and exhaustive review of Dr. Ergun Caners public statements, a committee consisting of four members of Liberty Universitys Board of Trustees has concluded that Dr. Caner has made factual statements that are self-contradictory. However, the committee found no evidence to suggest that Dr. Caner was not a Muslim who converted to Christianity as a teenager, but, instead, found discrepancies related to matters such as dates, names and places of residence. Dr. Caner has cooperated with the board committee and has apologized for the discrepancies and misstatements that led to this review. Dr. Caners current contractual term as Dean of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary expires on June, 30, 2010. Dr. Caner will no longer serve as Dean of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. The university has offered, and Dr. Caner has accepted, an employment contract for the 2010-2011 academic year. Dr. Caner will remain on the faculty of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary as a professor."
Dr. James White from the Alpha and Omega Ministries wrote on his blog :
" Dr. Caner has apologized for exactly what? For lying about his past, making up an entire persona that catapulted him to national prominence and gave him the position he enjoys, claiming to have done debates in at least eleven countries and 35 states against Muslim clerics and others? Is that what he apologized for? These questions must be answered, and Liberty cannot afford to be silent.
All Liberty teaching contracts end on June 30th. This is merely a non-renewal of the contract, replacing it with a lesser contract to teach. But to teach what? Apologetics? Upon what basis? Will he honestly tell his students that he has lied about his experiential expertise in that field for nearly a decade? Or is Liberty hoping their students do not surf the net very often? "
Kevin, a student at Liberty University wrote :
" As a full time student at Liberty I completely agree and know of several others who do as well. There are several of us students who have already dropped Caner's Theo 201 class for this coming Fall, because we do not want to be taught by a liar. Someone that we can't trust to be truthful. He has lied right to our faces just recently in a Campus Church and it is WRONG and hurtful. He better have something dang good to say to us in the Fall when we get back or I will NEVER take him seriously again. Period. "
An employee at Liberty University wrote :
" I am a full time employee at LU and I can assure you that there are many at LU who are very very glad that Caner is no longer the seminary president. He is a pathological liar who created a fake past to sell books and get attention. LU's reputation is damaged because of him and I wish more people at LU would stand up for the truth and demand that we do not have to be followers to a blatant liar as Ergun Caner. "
A graduate of LU wrote :
" As an alumni (95) of LU and one year at the seminary I am embarrassed that the school does not take truth seriously. It is sad to see how LU has circled the wagons to protect their image. Unfortunately they have destroyed their image. I would never send my kid to Liberty after this.
How could any professor with a clear conscience want to stay and teach at such a corrupt institution? And why would any student want to stay there? "
Ed, a former student of LU wrote :
" If Dr. Caner's books are clear as to his biography, why did LU pull from its website Caner's original bio and make necessary corrections? This, of itself, is an admission of guilt to some degree about not shooting straight about his past.
LU can do much better than having Ergun Caner on its faculty. I feel very badly for the profs there who have had their reputations soiled by having to work for him. I enjoyed learning from many of them in my days there (1979-1986)."
