Meltdown of the Caner brothers - prominent Arminians in 'pseudo-Evangelicalism'

There has been a total meltdown recently, it seems, of two Arminians — the Caner brothers. Dr. Ergun Mehmet Caner is the president of the Liberty Theological Seminary, a Southern Baptist seminary while his brother Dr. Emir Caner is currently the dean of The College of Southwestern (TCS) on the campus of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Both of them have experienced a total meltdown while trying to prepare a debate with Dr. James R. White of Alpha and Omega Ministries and Dr. Tom Ascol of the Founders Ministry. You can read for yourselves about this meltdown here (1, 2), which demonstrate the utter unwillingness of at least these high-profile Arminians to allow scrutiny of their views according to Scripture but instead just place their Tradition above that of Scripture (just like all other Arminians, btw), practically denying Sola Scriptura in the process. And I agree with James White about his characterization of the Caners as mean-spirited, insolent and egoistic, with no sign of Christ-likeness in their entire behavior. And they are supposed to be spiritual leaders?! Judging by their behavior, I wouldn't even want any of them to teach young children!
