Dr. Allan Moseley: “I don’t recall the lady telling me that.”

81882

 

In an article published on June 6, 2018 in the Baptist Standard, which can be read in its entirety here, the following was written:

“Dr. Patterson first learned of the charges that he allegedly did not report a rape at SEBTS during the May 22 board meeting” of Southwestern’s trustees. “Dr. Patterson’s response was that he had no recollection of a rape being reported to him.”

In the interview with Baptist Press, Sharpe said Patterson didn’t “remember a lady reporting a rape” while he was at Southeastern, so he called Allan Moseley, Southeastern’s dean of students in 2003.

“Dr. Moseley said, ‘I don’t recall the lady telling me that.’ And then the lady who became Lively’s accountability partner” said, when she was queried May 22, “‘I don’t ever remember this student telling me that.’”

Sharpe alleged Lively, in 2003, confessed to consensual sexual conduct and “referred to it as a sin on her part.”

In 2 Corinthians 13 the Apostle Paul faced severe criticism from those who challenged his authority to speak charging his accusers with this statement, “you seek a proof of Christ speaking in me”. He made this appeal to his accusers in verse 1, “This will be the third time I am coming to you. ‘By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.’”

Take one more look at the statements of 2 individuals who should have had more information regarding an allegation of rape than Dr. Patterson would have had.

“Dr. Moseley said, ‘I don’t recall the lady telling me that.’ And then the lady who became Lively’s accountability partner” said, when she was queried May 22, “‘I don’t ever remember this student telling me that.’”

“Dr. Patterson’s response was that he had no recollection of a rape being reported to him.”

“By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.”

As a people of the Book, are we not obligated to stand by the words of the Book? If Patterson, Moseley and the accountability partner ALL say the same thing, should that not confirm Patterson’s original statement on May 22? It certainly should put the actions of the Executive Committee of the SWBTS trustees in question.
