SWBTS trustee Chairman Van McClain responded to Dwight McKissic’s statement on March 6. Here is McClain’s statement in full:

“I am grieved that Rev. McKissic has mischaracterized the meeting the officers have called to discuss Rev. McKissic’s conduct as a trustee.The meetinghas nothing to do with his race or his beliefs or his right to appropriately express his beliefs.”

“As to the issue that Rev. McKissic learned of the meeting with the officers through the media, the letter to him was sent last Friday by certified mail, return receipt requested. The postal service could have delivered it to him on Saturday, but unfortunately did not deliver it to him until Monday afternoon [March 5], according to postal service records.”
