FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - One week after being demoted to a ceremonial position, Paige Patterson has now been completely ousted from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

The latest shakeup from the organization was announced late Wednesday night that Patterson has lost even his title of President Emeritus along with all compensation and his on-campus housing.

The trustees met yesterday and voted on Patterson's ouster after they confirmed complaints that he had swept a sexual assault under the rug when he led another Baptist seminary in North Carolina.

Last week, Patterson was removed from his position as President due to complaints from women over his comments about women, abuse and divorce.
