More on the Silencing of Janet Mefferd, the Shamefulness of Tyndale Publishers, and How Mark Driscoll the Plagiarist is Getting Away With It

This is disgusting.

… it seems that Mefferd faced tremendous pressure and criticism from Tyndale House Publishers and Driscoll’s allies, one of whom called for an interview boycott of her show.  One of Mefferd’s producers, Ingrid Schlueter, even resigned in reaction to the criticism.  Schleuter used to work for VCY America’s Crosstalk (whose host is her father, Vic Eliason). But she left in 2011, warning that “the mafia crime families have nothing on ‘Christian ministry.’”

I am absolutely disgusted by Tyndale.  Instead of honestly and properly pulling Driscoll’s plagiarisms they’ve doubled down and are defending his actions AND, evidently, attempting to muzzle anyone who speaks out about it.

Well, Tyndale, muzzle me.  Go ahead, try.  In the meanwhile, I will be urging people who are actual Christians to abstain from purchasing anything you sell and I myself will NEVER, EVER again buy, use, read, or mention anything you produce.

I cannot, I will not, I refuse to aid and abet a company more interested in profits than truth.  ESPECIALLY when that company operates under the esteemed name of one of Christianity’s greatest advocates of truth.  Tyndale House Publishers, your actions vis-a-vis plagiarism disgust me.

The only course of action left to you is an apology to consumers and public repentance for your defense of a plagiarist simply so that you could sell his theologically bankrupt rubbish.

    Why are you jumping to the conclusion that Tyndale is putting pressure on Mefferd and associates? Seems like quite a reach and it certainly hasn’t been substantiated. Tyndale has been a very reputable publisher for decades.

      i am quite certain that right wing watch is on the right track. and tyndale’s past is no guarantee of its actions in the present. obviously.

      Dobber it is obvious that the evidence supporting her case has been wiped from the internet. Where is it and why? If it isn’t Tyndale pressuring her, why are they not supporting her?

    As far as Christians being worse than the Mafia… The Christian “Army” is the only army that not only shoots its wounded, they EAT their wounded. ALIVE!

    Horribly disappointed in tyndale house!! It’s very clear to everyone what they pressured her to do! Plus the fact that they won’t even own up to their own very evident mistakes! Black eye for them, their credibility is shot in my option. I won’t buy another book from them!
