McCain's http://cyberbrethren.com/ has become rather dull lately. He stopped plagiarizing so my detective skills are lying fallow at the moment. He was even linking his plagiarized Roman Catholic material on LutherQuest (sic). That is like Pope Benedict issuing an "apostolic letter" while copying it verbatim from the Book of Concord.
Did he repent and apologize? If so, I missed it.
I will be happy to reprint his apology, if and when it happens. Kintz owes the publishing world an apology too. McCain is listed as working 50 hours a week at Concordia Publishing House and earning a princely salary with more in benefits than many make as a salary. Therefore, McCain represents his employer and church body whenever he steals material from another source and parades it as if he wrote it himself.
Nevertheless, Kintz is worse for tolerating this behavior in a subordinate and doing nothing about it.
Facebook users and bloggers are weary of McCain's nastiness. I can only conclude that he has the blessing of SP Harrison, who makes a great show of his friendship with McCain. Herman Otten knows how precious that friendship and cooperation is - just like Waldo Werning's.

Well, GJ, don't hold your breath. I think that people like the Celebrity Lutheran Blogger eventually discover that they can be perceived to be The Public Fool. There is no reasoning with these persons because they are arrogant. Ibsen had a line on this in one of his plays: "Do you think that the things people make fools of themselves about are any less real and true than the things they behave sensibly about? They are more true: they are the only things that are true.". Henrik Ibsen Candida (1898). Act 1. From Augarde, Tony. "The Oxford Dictionary of Modern Quotations". New York: Oxford University Press, 1991. P. 194 (4)
