Here’s What John Carpenter of the Christian Post Thinks of Plagiarism
One would think that the eruption of outrage at Driscoll is a refreshing expression of righteous indignation at failures of integrity. One would be wrong. Is having some unknown wordsmith cranking out pages that are then packaged and sold as the work of your favorite celebrity pastor deceitful and wrong? Yes. That deserves outrage. Is incorporating a few sentences of research into what is otherwise your original work really morally depraved lying? Be serious.
Mr Carpenter, ‘a few sentences’? That’s laughable in its ignorance. What we have here is a man willing to dismiss the very serious problem of theft. By a ‘Christian’. Of another Christian’s intellectual property. What we have here in Mr. Carpenter is a person void of understanding.
The Christian Post can do better. It should do better. It must do better.
