Somehow I doubt Morse's explanation. It's too bad he can say whatever he wants about the administration unchallenged because he has threatened that anyone who risks correcting his "facts" would likely be terminated from their job. Six people parading through the classrooms "later in the day" makes no difference if school is still in session. Students take exams and do educational activities throughout the day. As for taking down the newspaper article.... it wasn't his to remove. Why couldn't he just point it out if he was concerned about it. If he truly was taking it to "give to her" it was likely to further intimidate and try to squelch those who want to get the truth out. This "lawyer" does not represent the school any more than the behavior of the Nazarene District represents the Lord we love.

As a parent I am furious that these people were aloud to come on our campus and traumatize our student and staff the way they did. They could have waited until after school was let out, instead they chose to come when when our children were in class!!! How insensitive!!!! Morse do you have children?? Would you approve of this type of behavior to be displayed in front of your children???? I think not! But you don't care about these kids. All you see are the $$$$$$
And then you brought those people in OUR classrooms to drool over everything we as parents have worked so hard to obtain for OUR children only to drool over everything YOU HOPE to obtain.
And Mr Morse I understand you bullied the two young ladies that work in the front office,(they weigh all of 100lbs) how MANLY of you to pick on those two young ladies, you should be ashamed of your self!!!!! What would your mother think of you had she seen you treating those women that way!!!! Is the Anaheim office paying you extra to terrorize the staff, do you get bonus points for that? You said you RIPPED the article off the school because you wanted to show Mrs. Chiappone, leave her out of this! That poor woman! you have driven her to such illness!! She has been sick all week!!! Do you get bonus points for that too!!!! What do you get for making little kindergardeners cry????? You are making it very hard to continue to pray for soul.

I saw Morse take down the article voliently and storm into the office. It didn't look to me like he was going to be nice about it! I felt bad for the staff in the office! Who does he think he is? He's not a christian man I can tell you that by his actions and words that go to our staff.

I agree with you Pam, he can say whatever he wants but we who hear and witness his actions know the truth. He has to feel a bit uncomforable coming on campus knowing how we all feel about him and what he is doing. I'm glad we are calling him on it by using the paper, taking pictures and asking him questions when we see him.

I will pray for him though.

A disillusioned Upland Nazarene member posted a good idea in response to the article regarding the District breaking procedure. He/she suggested that we contact all the pastors of churches within the Anaheim District, some of which are on the advisory board. Let's do that but don't stop there. The District advisory board seems to be either intimdated or fooled by Doane. We need to reach pastors within that district and BEYOND. There are some very large Nazarene churches in this state. If each person sent their email to multiple churches, all of those in this district and several more in neighboring districts, the buzz will grow. In fact, if all the large Nazarene churches in the country heard the buzz about this continued abuse of power, Doane and his puppets would have more accountability and the General Superintendent would feel a more urgent need to act. What they have done was against their own manual. It is wrong and it should not be tolerated. A man like Morse has no business being employed by a church denomination and Doane should be reprimanded and removed for breach of procedure. The sale of the property should be made null and void. We all got an extra hour last night... use a few minutes to spread the word.

Morse ever heard of the state bar of California?
You should be reported for ethics violations. Ripping down material is not ethical and going into occupied classrooms is not ethical. Scaring people is not ethical. I am sure the admin. did not give you leeway to do all of the above. Here is the phone number of the state bar to report Morse if you saw him doing these things. It is 1-800-843-9053.
Do not let this man get away with intimidation.

Lets get one thing clear. Mr. Morse is not the lawyer for Upland Christian Schools. He is the lawyer and on the legal advisory for the Anaheim District Church of the Nazarene. UCS would never have such a man represent our school.

Morse called within minutes of arriving on campus. Too bad our teaches and staff are so afraid to lose their jobs that they were too afraid to say NO to Morse. All visitors are required to wear a visitor badge to ensure student saftey.....what the heck are we paying for? PROTECT MY CHILD AND tell these people NO! Who is in charge on campus? Hey Morse...give our staff the respect they deserve! Give the parents and students the respect they deserve! I thought you were trying to make this "transition" easy and respectful...when are you going to start???????? Right now I see a bunch of bullies inflicting pain and suffering on our children for no reason.....hmmmm sounds like legal grounds for something???? Keep it up Morse.

Reading through the lines... it sounds like Mr. Morse is going to do something to Mrs. Chiaponne because someone else has an opinion that is not his opinion. She does not deserve any of his rantings and threats. Please contact all Church of the Nazarene members and ask that there be a stop to his unethical behavior. He sounds like a bully and he needs to be called out and stopped. Please do not wash your hands of what is going on at UCS. We need people who have influence with the Anaheim District to be bold and balance the injustices that are happening here. What is happening is not of Love.

Mr Morse who did you notify? You and Mr Doane now continually claim to represent UCS. Maybe you notified yourself. Were you also the administratrion
representitive that you claim to have escorted your group through our campus? Funny that no witnesses or teachers saw that person.

I actually almost fell off my chair laughing at his ridiculous explanation. I'm sure that he thinks some people who read the paper will actually believe it, but it's also to cover his butt because he knew people got pics of him acting badly.

I am also angry that they were on campus when our kids where there, but the truth is, he does not care if we are angry. That much is obvious. I think Morse and Doane enjoy it.

I respectfully ask WCS to please abide by our campus rules as you would expect someone to abide by yours.
WCS parents, please let your administration know that you don't think this is O.K. Please, we ask you to help because you might have a voice!

Though I certainly feel for you and UCS, this campus belongs to the Anaheim district. You pay your tuition for services rendered and received.

I am not sure how much more my wife can take. The stress Morse, Doane and Kratz on putting on the staff is unacceptable! I understand Morse and Kratz had some of the locks changed right in the middle of the day for our children to see. COULD YOU HAVE NOT WAITED FOR A TIME WHEN THE CHILDREN WERE NOT ON CAMPUS?????? I also hear you bullied Lori and Laura at the front desk, VERY, VERY TOUGH OF YOU! You guys are REAL CHRISTIAN MEN, PICK ON SOMEONE YOUR OWN SIZE!!!!!!! Does Anaheim know what you are doing??

Fred, UCS is not a service. This is a ministry. The UCS community invested in the UCS legacy. We were looking forward to having future generations attend. Our hearts and prayers have aligned with UCS and toward its prosperity. Do you really think that if it were not for the wonderful people who sacrificed their time, resources and favor towards the completion of this high school that it really would have happened? Do you really think that Dr. Doane, Jerry Porter and Mr. Morse were an integral part of the success of this project? I think not. They are preying on the vulnerability of UCS and the LOCAL church board hidden in the church's bylaws. I am still waiting to hear their heart for our school. As of yet... it's hard and bitter. Please continue to pray for the Lord to soften them.

UCS Parent:

As I said in my remarks, the Upland Christian School does not belong to the parents, but to the Anaheim district. I never said it was not a ministry, I believe it is. However, speaking from a business standpoint, the campus does not belong to the parents. The parents receive a service for the tuition they pay.

I have not one clue about the people you mentioned. I will pray for God's will to be done. Like I also stated, I feel for you and your kids, because it happened to us when Pomona First Baptist School closed back in 2000.

Today in Children's church our children learned about standing up for what is right. If it were only that simple! We need to keep up the fight because the Bible says that we will have opposition, but God has given us promises that we will win the battles if we are walking in his will. Lets not loose the battle because it's hard! Everything worth anything is! UCS is a beautiful ministry and it should continue! Keep up your noise, they hear us!

Yep, it's a business. They failed to disclose to us when they took our money that this was in the works. This is NOT what we pay for. We pay for a quality Christian education in a safe and peaceful learning environment. Instead we have strangers roaming our campus without checking in, we have very upset children, we have teachers and staff under duress. Do you really think this doesn't have an effect on the educational environment that our children are in?

One of the MANY LIES they have told is that there wouldn't be any changes this school year. IF you rent or lease property, you cannot just enter it whenever you feel like it and do whatever you want. There are protections for tenants and courtesies that apparently no one feels we're entitled to.

Exactly what is your point Fred? Do you feel the need to chime in with these comments because maybe you think we don't have enough inconsiderate and uncompassionate people to deal with?

If so, I just want to say for the record that they are interfering with the education they made sure I signed up for by not telling me what I was getting into - when they knew full well what was coming just weeks into the school year.

This is Sarah Ertel, the daughter of Elizabeth Ertel, the person who wrote the October 21 article referenced here.

My mother would like to request prayers tomorrow, November 3, as certain steps will be taken in defense of the school. Please keep the school and the church in your prayers tomorrow and in the coming weeks.

Thank you.
