James White was interviewed on Iron Sharpens Iron regarding this fiasco with Ergun Caner. I think Dr. White is correct. in what he has done and it is Dr. Caner who could have diffused all of this by just telling the truth. Leaders and Teachers must be held to a high standard. This particular is a great summary of what Dr. White's point of view is at this point and what has happened and why. Dr White did try to give Caner a chance to come clean about his actions with Dr. White not publicly calling him into account.
