Dan Jackson hit with gag order after being too honest at “Is This Thing On?” Q&A

Busted.

SILVER SPRING, Md. — North American Division President Dan Jackson has been formally forbidden from making any public comments on behalf of the church by a formal General Conference gag order.

The silencing comes on the heels of a recent Q&A session with Union College students in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The Q&A titled “Is This Thing On?” was intended to be the first of several unscripted conversations between NAD leaders and Adventist students.

The gag order states that in his answers to questions, Jackson “managed to outdo even his own previous foolhardy candor and is therefore forbidden from being honest with Adventist college kids or anyone else for the foreseeable future.”

Jackson and NAD Executive Secretary G. Alexander Bryant had answered questions submitted through social media and from live audience members.

The responses from the church leaders on questions about sexuality, ordination, racism and other topics were condemned by the gag order for being “actual answers and not at all the kind of bureaucratic, jargon-heavy, question-dodging, biblically shaky and culturally irrelevant drivel that is expected of leaders of their stature.”

    THE MAJORITY OF SDA DO NOT FOLLOW THE JEWISH 4TH COMMANDMENT AS THY PROCLAIM TO, HERE IS THE 4TH AS MOST OF YOU KNOW:
    Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

    9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: (MOST PEOPLE DO NOT WORK 6 DAYS A WEEK, SOME BUMS DONT WORK AT ALL)
    THE 4TH COMMANDMENT TO THE JEWS WAS REALLY 2 LAWS IN 1. WORK 6 DAYS AND REST THE 7TH. BY THE WAY MANY PASTORS WORK 1 DAY (SABBATH) AND REST THE OTHER 6 DAYS). JUST SAYING.

    10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

    11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

    “These persons come to feel secure in their deceptions and, because of His long-suffering, say that the Lord seeth not…. But He will detect their hypocrisy and will open before others those sins which they were so careful to hide.” Testimonies 5, p. 211-212.

  3. Revelation

    One day, anonymous letters were delivered to 10 of the “pillars of the community.” The note read: “Flee! All is known.” By midnight, 8 of them had hastily left town.

  4. Sir Canon Doyle

    The board of deacons once selected an Elder who was known as an upright Christian gentleman, whose word was accepted as his bond and had the highest respect. The deacons dispatched a telegram to this pillar of the church, saying, ‘All is discovered; flee at once!” The elder disappeared that night and has never been seen again.

  5. Simon

    When the female victim of clergy seduction/abuse finally points her finger at the perpetrator, you can bet the “man of the cloth” will call her “filthy,” “schitzo,” “drunk,” or “insane.” That tactic has worked ever since Simon the Pharisee turned on Mary of Magdala. It worked pretty well for Morrie.
