Unauthorized Publication - Light from Light
November 2, 2010 by Rick
Recently, a non-WELS* blogger published, without my permission, a 29 page letter that I wrote to my pastors and church council last year. However, I gave no one permission to publish my letter, neither did I send my letter to anyone other than those to whom it was addressed.
I immediately sent a respectful e-mail to this other blogger asking him to not publish my letter.
Without ever having communicated with me, this blogger has also publicly speculated about the synod officials’ response to my letter.
This sort of behavior is morally wrong and not to be commended in any way. It is also disorderly. (James 3:17-18).
Those who take it upon themselves to publish a year old letter without permission, and who have no information about what has transpired over the last year, behave in an irresponsible manner.
GJ - I wrote to Rick -
"You already distributed your letter widely, and many people shared it with others. I simply gave it a boost.
You would do everyone a favor if you published Englebrecht's response on your own blog. But he swore you to secrecy, because that method favors the bullies.
To the readers - At some point a concerned layman participates in the false doctrine by tolerating it with his presence, excusing it by saying it is his family church, and criticizing anyone who dares to quote him.
Rick - you are dealing with men who have covered up murders and many felonies. They are not going to concern themselves with sound doctrine, which is far more dangerous.
You and the Intrepids (sic) could have spoken up at the district meeting. I know from witnesses that not one of you said a thing. You should be apologizing to all Lutherans on your blog.
*non-WELS. That is funny, probably meant as the ultimate putdown.
