Peter Enns, "Ten Commandments of How Jesus Wants You to Fire a Colleague"

I thought this was quite interesting. Both honest and respectful. 


Enns:
I wanted to follow up a bit on my recent post citing Larry Hurtado’s prophetic denouncement of the increasingly common acts of injustice toward Christian faculty members. 
The following are reasonable parameters to follow when administrations find themselves, for whatever reason, at odds with a colleague, who is also a brother or sister in Christ. 
1. Christian colleges and seminaries have every right to establish theological parameters that are consistent with their mission and understanding of fidelity to the gospel. Academic freedom does not mean “anything goes.”
For the rest, check Enns/Patheos.
