We have to wonder if any of Dr. Lappenga’s personal reasons impact his theological and ethical training of Dordt students who took his classes? Does the Board of Trustees need to ‘look into any damage he may have taught? In...

Dordt College requires apology from Creation-supporting prof, tight-lipped about LGBTQ promotion

You can view this article from the Dordt Diamond regarding "misuse" of mass email. But note how the Creation-promoting professor was asked to apologize for a Biblical creation conference notice, yet Dordt administration made no apology for the use of the email system to promote LGBTQ interest.

PRI invites Hoekstra, Baart, Dordt board to respond to PRI Challenge

PRI has learned from one of our five board members that Dordt is telling callers concerned about Aaron Baart’s unbiblical promotion of LGBT that Baart is being taken out of context. This matches with what president Erik Hoekstra has said in the past. Hoekstra has claimed Baart is being taken out of context and that Dordt should simply be given the benefit of the doubt. Dordt has not offered...

Dordt Dean of Chapel Baart gives ‘thumbs up’ to same-sex wedding

We have already shown how Dordt dean of chapel Aaron Baart would have Christians be at the very front of the gay pride parade, because this "sounds a lot like Jesus." Dordt president Erik Hoekstra has defended Baart in his advocating for the LGBTQ community, but Hoekstra says Dordt's dean of chapel (Baart) would never affirm same-sex relationships or same-sex activity. Not only have we...
