Students, faculty demand Sewanee revoke evangelical Eric Metaxas’ honorary degree

Hundreds of Sewanee faculty, students and alumni have signed on to a letter calling on campus leaders to revoke the honorary degree they gave to popular evangelical author and radio host Eric Metaxas in 2015.

More than 350 students, faculty and alumni of the University of the South, a private, Tennessee-based Episcopal liberal arts institution, have signed the letter-styled petition, arguing that the award should be revoked, citing the best-selling author’s comments regarding LGBTQ issues and the 2020 election results.

Metaxas is a New York Times bestselling author, host of a nationally syndicated radio show, frequent guest speaker, popular Christian apologist, former “Veggie Tales” writer, and senior fellow and lecturer at large for King’s College in New York City, according to his online bio.
