Remove Chuck Phelps From Bob Jones University Board

1,260 Signatures Goal: 5,000

Chuck Phelps was the pastor of Trinity Baptist Church when a 15 year old girl in the congregation was raped. He gave comfort to the rapist, a man who confessed to the pastor that he was the aggressor, made the young girl apologize for her part in getting raped, sent her away with her mother's help to another IFB church in Colorado where she would have her baby and give it up for adoption away from friends and family, and allowed the rapist to remain in the church.

On April 8, 2011, ABC 20/20 did an investigative piece about Tina Anderson's story:http://abcnews.go.com/2020/video/scarred-childhood-13334532

Chuck Phelps had to testify at the trial of Tina Anderson's rapist. There are several news stories available about his testimony:
Pastor: I heard aggressorPastor continues to testify in Willis rape trialVideos from the trial
After trial was over, Chuck Phelps never contacted Tina Anderson to apologize to her. In fact, some witnesses at the trial described his testimony as evasive and defensive.

In spite of his failure to protect a child and make sure a rapist was brought to justice, even allowing the rapist to attend youth activities with his children after Tina Anderson was sent away, Bob Jones University has added him BACK onto their board. He was on the board for a few years and stepped down when he took the presidency at Maranatha Baptist Bible College.

Please add your signature in support of asking Bob Jones University to remove Chuck Phelps from the board. Bob Jones University preaches the need for repentance. Chuck Phelps has not demonstrated repentance for the way he treated Tina Anderson.

    I signed this because I believe Pastors are doubly accountable to God for their decisions.

    Proverbs 24:24-25, Isaiah 1:17, Colossians 2:8. If you believe in justice and the need for true repentance then you will remove Chuck Phelps from your board. I have nothing else to say to you about this.
