Iată şi o altă opinie!Martie 4, 2007
Într-un comunitat de presă de la Associated BAptist Press apare ceea ce spune profesorul Scott Rae:
„Rae, a professor of the philosophy of religion and ethics at Biola University and its seminary, Talbot School of Theology, in La Mirada, Calif., said he has no reason to doubt Negrut’s explanation that the unauthorized copying was an accident.
„I received a letter of apology from Paul, and I had a personal meeting with Paul two or three weeks ago, where he apologized profusely for the mistakes that were made,” Rae told ABP. „He has maintained all along that they were inadvertent, unintentional [mistakes]. He said it was a very regrettable error for which he deeply and fully apologized. And that was good enough for me.”
Este interesant să remarcăm cîteva lucruri în acest comunicat:
1. poziţionarea pe eşichierul politic eclesial a celor doi români amintiţi în articol, dr. Otniel Bunaciu şi dr. Paul Negruţ. Ce înseamnă în acest context „a more moderate school” sau
„He was one of the few Baptists worldwide who supported the Southern Baptist Convention’s withdrawal from the Baptist World Alliance in 2004 – an effort led by Patterson. Negrut is also a leader of the movement to create a conservative worldwide Baptist fellowship. Many observers view it as an alternative to the BWA, which Negrut has accused of liberalism.”
2. izul electoral al articolului. Ne întrebăm ce rost au comentarii de genul
„Negrut is completing his last term as president of the Romanian Baptist Union. An election will be held this year to replace him. The man Negrut has endorsed as his successor is expected to lead the union out of the BWA. He is running against Otiel Bunaciu, president of Bucharest Baptist Theological Seminary, a more moderate school that supports involvement with BWA and the European Baptist Federation.”
3. articolul este împănat şi cu inexactităţi sau greşeli de tipografie. Numele profesorului Otiel (sic!) Bunaciu este greşit, dar şi numărul de studenţi ai universităţii Emanuel (800?). Se pare că fiecare dintre publicaţiile (la acestea se adaugă Informaţia de Vest şi SAntinela) care s-au apucat să îl atace pe prof. Negruţ îşi fac slujba doar pe jumătate, fără a face investigaţii serioase. La sesizarea Santinelei că nu s-a făcut o investigaţie care să respecte deontologia profesiei de jurnalist, nu s-a primit decît un schimb privat de emailuri.
