On Wednesday, Dwight McKissic sent an apology to SWBTS board Chairman Van McClain that was posted at, a site hosted by Bart Barber, pastor of First Baptist Church of Farmersville.

The letter reads:

“It was not my intent to bring grief to you,” “It was simply to point out the inequities and injustices I am experiencing by being asked to come to trial without specific charges and to have my trusteeship put on the line with no policy or law violations being cited as specifically being applied to an action or inaction on my part.

“That is certainly reminiscent of a hanging without due process. That is what I meant by ‘lynching.’ I was not personally referring to you as a racist. I was simply saying the process again reminds me of a kangaroo court or lynching.”

“Please forgive my offensive remarks and hopefully this explanation will suffice along with the attached article. Again, I want to be clear, it’s the process that reminds me of a lynching, not the personalities involved. I trust that you will forgive me.
