Neutrality[edit]

This article doesn't discuss any of the controversies in which Dr. Patterson has been involved throughout his career, nor does it discuss the effects of his adminstration on SWBTS such as the precipitous drop in enrollment. Xenophore 21:40, 15 October 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Xenophore (talkcontribs)

This article now seems to be fairly biased against Paige Patterson. Namely, but not exclusively, the fact that one of the sections is titled "Sexual Abuse Problem in the Ministry". A cursory reading of such a title, without completely reading the section, may imply that Patterson himself was involved in a sexual abuse scandal, which is simply not the case and borders on character defamation. The issue is whether or not he properly handled complaints made against an associate of his. The title should be changed in order to reflect the content since the current title is incredibly misleading. A possible alternative could be "Involvement with Darrel Gilyard".

I think the whole section should go - it's not really relevant, and definitely lends undue weight to the article. StAnselm (talk) 23:40, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
I disagree, and would like more discussion before this stuff is deleted. Paul, in Saudi (talk) 00:39, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
I'm happy to discuss it more, but I removed it per WP:BLPREMOVE. Not only do we have the question of relevancy, but it is also unclear that ethicsdaily.com is a reliable source. StAnselm (talk) 01:03, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
Rev Patterson reflexively defended men of the cloth who were accused of sexual offenses at a time when the number of predators in religious vocations was well-known. At a time when the claims of those abused were widely accepted, he was spring-loaded in an "attack the victim" mode. This seems to be important. At the very least, we can see that he does not "get it." Paul, in Saudi (talk) 01:56, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Copyright[edit]

The section on his family seems to be coped directly from the school's website [1], and the website says it's copyrighted. 98.27.7.29 (talk) 02:44, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Sex Abuse Comments[edit]

Deleted this comment as I see we have discussed the redaction. (Still I think it is important.)Paul, in Saudi (talk) 03:47, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
