Roman Catholic church only true church, says Vatican

Billy Graham seems to have been a good man. Did he err? Of course. We all err. But I would not want to measure my life against his. I suspect I'd fall short. Fifteen years ago or so I was reading one of those throw-away papers. In Columbus, the main one then was "The Other Paper". There was an article about Jimmy Stewart, who had died not long before. The author trashed him because he supported the first Iraq was and funded searches for the Yeti. This inconsequential writer for a throw-away paper, whose life was not open for inspection as Stewart's was, was trashing a successful actor, war hero, and a man who remained married to his first wife until her death. Maybe there is stuff I don't know about Stewart. But there was nothing in that article that justified trashing a successful, apparently decent man -- other than, perhaps jealously over that success. Oh. And Yetis.  (Yesterday | post #550992)

Repetition does not change that you are a thief, thief. It just means that you are a repetitive thief.  (Yesterday | post #550990)

Incorrect, thief. Now please provide a quality source that requires you to state, "Here are my words," to be a plagiarist. I'll note that the lawyer in this case never claimed such but was sanctioned nevertheless: https://docs.googl e.com/document/d/1 DzP9O2hmoUHcpD7SYK gNsrB7uVlrFf8qB2zE hiT1ev4/edit?pli=1 Thief.  (Yesterday | post #550988)

Incorrect. First, it is not "their" law. It is *our* law. And those factors are not exception to fair use, they are factors in determining fair use. Now apply those factors to my use -- with citation -- of M-W's dictionary. 'Tard.  (Yesterday | post #550981)

Use of common knowledge is not considered plagiarism. And while what experts consider common is not uniform, that's not an issue when someone is using another person's words verbatim.  (Yesterday | post #550979)

Who do you keep quoting, dimwit? It appears to be yourself. But, of course, you are a proven thief, so it could be anyone. But the reality is, if there is a dispute, the courts decide.  (Yesterday | post #550978)

Yes. If you post another persons words under your moniker with no indication that that person rather than you is responsible for those words, you are a plagiarist, and you are passing off that person's words as your own. And that makes you a thief. And you have often done exactly that. And as you well know, my use of Webster's dictionary with proper citations falls under section 107 of the copyright act. It is fair use and Webster's written reliance on that act provides that permission -- in writing, though that is not required. Thief.  (Yesterday | post #550977)

So now you are changing your claim and admitting they are not exceptions. Now apply those "factors " -- the code's term -- to my use, 'Tard.  (Yesterday | post #550970)

So, first, according to you, I was claiming to be a scholar. Now, having been called on that claim, you assert I merely claimed religious scholars exist. Got any other dishonestly you want to come clean about?  (Yesterday | post #550968)

It is so, thief. If you fail to attribute pilfered words from someone else, you are a thief. And I do have permission for fair use under the US copyright law. Repeating you dishonesty does not change that.  (Yesterday | post #550964)

Oh. And since you are responding to my post, "Every time you post someone's words without attribution you are plagiarizing, thief." Please identify where I have done that. A permalink would be great.  (Tuesday | post #550961)

I've never claimed to be a scholar. Please provide a permalink.  (Tuesday | post #550959)
