An epic fail by Harvest Bible Chapel elders and James MacDonald.
In our post on the HBC elder board's infamous video we made the following remark.
I am suspicious that someone might arouse the current elders from their stupor and they will see the error of their ways and the video will disappear, never to be seen again.
We were not let down by the sorriest excuse of "biblical" manhood that we have seen in at least a week or so. (Sarcasm intended).
James MacDonald made the following statement in that video.
And that when the elders speak collectively in agreement, they speak for God to our church.
Apparently, James MacDonald and the HBC Elder Borg Collective hold the copyright on God's words. Yesterday, they used "biblical" legal action aimed at Paul Dohse at Paul's Passing Thoughts link for "copyright infringement."
Harvest Bible Chapel has filed a complaint against PPT with YouTube claiming copyright infringement. The complaint concerns the infamous, and haughty video by James MacDonald and four of his elders. The Elephant’s Debt .com reported on the video here.
The validity of the complaint is very questionable, crippled PPT’s media operations yesterday (and continues to do so), and the information is being forwarded to our attorney. As far as we can ascertain at this time, the video was a public statement/announcement and not covered under copyright laws.
To quote Ted S- TWW reader
Dee & Deb and the TWW community –
That post above may have been easily overlooked because of all the posts on this thread – but if it is true, it represents some truly OUTRAGEOUS and PARANOID conduct on the part of HBC.
This action is an embarrassment for a church which purports to speak for God. They have demonstrated, once and for all, the nonsense that masquerades for "biblical" leadership at HBC. Long live The Elephants Debt and Paul's Passing Thoughts!
PS- To the elders, we do have the transcript, you know. Are those God's words as well? So, are you gonna sic your lawyers on all the reprints of the transcripts?
