Crystal Cathedral denies removing founder Robert H. Schuller from board

A Crystal Cathedral spokesman on Monday denied reports that the church’s founder, Robert H. Schuller, has been voted off the board of directors.

“He was not voted off the board,” said spokesman John Charles of the Garden Grove,  church spokesman. “He is still board chairman emeritus.”

However, he will no longer have a vote.

The church released its statement a day after Schuller’s son, Robert Anthony Schuller, said his 84-year-old father had been ousted because he had proposed adding new members to the board.

In Monday’s statement, Charles said the move will free up Schuller’s time for more speaking engagements and a writing project: “He will also continue to speak in the pulpit of the Crystal Cathedral and on the ‘Hour of Power’ and meet with staff in creative and vision-casting meetings.”

Historic precedent here…before Francis of Assis died he was removed from the governing board of the Franciscans. He wasn’t “Franciscan” enough. Church politics is indeed the land of the silly.
