… 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.
