  • Evangelical Leader Returns To Catholicism

    The president of the Evangelical Theological Society, an association of 4,300 Protestant theologians, resigned this month because he has joined the Roman Catholic Church. The May 5 announcement by Francis J. Beckwith, a tenured associate professor at Baptist-affiliated Baylor University in Waco, Tex., has left colleagues gasping for breath and commentators grasping for analogies. One blogger likened it to Hulk Hogan's defection from the World Wrestling Federation to the rival World Championship Wrestling league.

    The Obama File ^ | 3/4/10 | Beckwith
    The following announcement was on The Obama File this morning: I would like to thank the 7 people who contributed to the support of The Obama File in the last 48 hours. I hate to put that reminder on this site, and I only do it once a month. I have decided to convert The Obama File into a subscription only site because of lack of support. If you don't care, I don't care. I don't know how long it will take, but I am suspending posts until the conversion is complete. I will direct my activities today to returning...

    This is a compilation which was done by a Great Patiot in great detail early on. It is being distorted and erased by the obamanation. I copied it in April, and now can no longer find it online. It is a synophis of what was found out so far on this imposter: for example: Who is Frank Marshall Davis? Frank Marshall Davis was a radical black communist and fed the impressionable Obama a constant diet of Marx and "blackness" all through his high school years. He was introduced to Obama by grandfather Stanley -- they were drinkin' buddies and Stanley...

    Francis Beckwith knows what it's like to be in the middle of controversy. In fact, he thinks he's a magnet for it. Beckwith, who is a philosophy and church-studies professor at Baylor University, triggered a debate when he resigned as president of the Evangelical Theological Society after converting to Catholicism. Now Beckwith happens to be a visiting fellow at the University of Notre Dame, where a new debate is focused on the university's invitation to President Obama to speak at commencement. "My wife says I'm like the Forrest Gump for controversy," he said. "But on campus, more people are concerned...

    Catholics should celebrate when anyone enters the Church. After all, we have it on good authority that the angels in heaven do. But when a prominent Protestant converts, we might not just feel like celebrating; we might feel like doing a victory dance in the end zone.We should fight the urge.Francis Beckwith was president of the Evangelical Theological Society until he quit the post to return to the faith of his childhood. The story of Beckwith’s conversion to Catholicism has much to teach us. The first lesson is this: The human attempt to build a version of Christianity without the...

    The New Liturgical Movement ^ | May 30, 2007 | Jeffrey Tucker
    Bad liturgy drives people away; embracing our heritage draws them back posted by Jeffrey Tucker Francis Beckwith was president of the Evangelical Theological Society, an association of 4,300 Protestant theologians. Now is he among the most famous "reverts" to Catholicism. In this interview, he provides a bracing look at what drove him away in the first place. Looking back, and knowing what I know now, I believe that the Church’s weakness was presenting the renewal movements as something new and not part of the Church’s theological traditions. For someone like me, who was interested in both the spiritual and...

    Until a few weeks ago, Francis Beckwith served as president of the Evangelical Theological Society, an association of 4,300 Protestant theologians. That was until he made the announcement on the Right Reason blog of his return to the Catholic faith of his youth. Beckwith returned to the Church after 32 years as an evangelical. The online “storm” that followed led Beckwith to resign as president of the prestigious society. He serves as associate professor of church-state studies at Baylor University. He spoke recently to Register senior writer Tim Drake from his home in Waco, Texas. It’s been a while...

    Insight Scoop ^ | May 7, 2007 | Carol Olson
    The return of Dr. Francis Beckwith, now the former president of the Evangelical Theological Society, to the Catholic Church, has, understandably, created a bit of a furor among some Evangelicals. I emphasize some because it is clear, in reading the now several dozens of comments left on Dr. Beckwith's post explaining his decision, that many non-Catholics are responding graciously and charitably to the news. It's equally clear that some are not; in fact, quite a few of the remarks are not simply harsh, but are even nasty and churlish. And some are, in my estimation, insulting. Perhaps most surprising to...

    Dr. Francis Beckwith explains his reasons for returning to the Catholic Church. (He was raised Catholic and received the sacraments of initiation as a child and young person).  Most of the post centers on the tussle over ETS matters and leadership, (he has resigned from the presidency) but: There is a conversation in ETS that must take place, a conversation about the relationship between Evangelicalism and what is called the “Great Tradition,” a tradition from which all Christians can trace their spiritual and ecclesiastical paternity.  It is a conversation that I welcome, and it is one in which I hope...

    Dr. Francis Beckwith, the president of the Evangelical Theological Society, has become Catholic. Dr. Beckwith was raised Catholic but became an Evangelical Protestant in youth. After a review of Catholic theology and its basis, however, he has been reconciled with the Church. I recently learned of Dr. Beckwith's intention to pursue reconciliation. Apparently my own humble writings were of use to him in his journey, and he was kind enough to say so. In view of the sensitivity of the situation, however, I of course agreed to refrain from making the matter publicly known. He also was kind enough to...
  • New tenor on tenure: Baylor can’t shake faculty flirtations with secularism

    WORLD ^ | April 15, 2006 | Gene Edward Veith
    The tenure system gives university professors lifetime job security. It is also a way to get rid of professors. Typically, new faculty members are hired for a several-year probationary period. Then they marshal their publications, teaching evaluations, and other accomplishments, and apply for tenure. If they do not get it, they have to leave. So it came as a surprise that Baylor denied tenure to Francis Beckwith, one of its best-known Christian scholars—despite his 11 books, 28 scholarly articles, a raft of teaching awards, and election as president of the Evangelical Theological Society. Baylor's previous president Robert Sloan had put...

    Col. Charles Beckwith, founder of the Delta Force, tells a story about White House planning in April 1980 for the mission to rescue our 53 hostages in Tehran. Beckwith had visited the White House Situation Room to brief President Carter. In the meeting, according to one writer, "Charlie mentioned that his Delta shooters would 'take out' the hostage guards. "Deputy Secretary of State Warren Christopher looked over at Charlie, eyebrows raised. 'Take them out,' Colonel?" Beckwith replied: "Yes, Mister Deputy Secretary. We're going to double-tap 'em. Shoot 'em each in the head — twice." Christopher protested: "Couldn't you just shoot...

    WASHINGTON - It was a quarter-century ago this month, April 24, 1980, that the secret American raid into Iran to rescue 53 hostages from the U.S. Embassy in Tehran collapsed in disaster on a make-shift airstrip in the middle of the Iranian desert. The embarrassingly public failure of the raid, code-named Operation Eagle Claw, was a low-water mark for the Carter administration and for our military as well, still struggling to get back on its feet in the wake of the debacle in Vietnam just five years before. Eight American servicemen died when the raid came apart with the fiery...
