Corban University President Sheldon Nord removes public comment questioning the university’s partnership with Mark Driscoll’s Mars Hill.

It has come to my attention that a comment was removed from the Facebook page of Corban University President Sheldon Nord. I discovered Corban University President Sheldon Nord’s Facebook page after writing this article, Mark Driscoll’s Mars Hill Bellevue Campus to Host University Classes in Fall of 2014. The comment was beneath a post announcing the partnership between Corban University and Mark Driscoll’s Mars Hill Church.
I happened to see the comment and took a screenshot of the page . . . just in case. I contacted the commenter to see if he had removed the comment and he confirmed that he had not.
Being a little sensitive about Free Speech issues, I’m disappointed that a college president would not allow reasonable discourse and respectable debate on a forum which allows comments. To remove negative comments from a public forum shows bad form – especially for a college where critical thinking should be encouraged. This behavior wreaks of “do not question authority.”
Here is the comment, someone at Corban University does not want you to see:
