Jonathan McLatchie Caught Plagiarizing During Debate with Yusuf Ismail

Several days ago I published a quick review demonstrating that most of McLatchie’s time was spent reading from the Bible (20 of 30 minutes) during his debate with Br. Yusuf Ismail. Yet of those remaining 10 minutes it has been discovered that he was not reading from his own words, indeed he has copied from an online article by Sam Shamoun entitled, “Jesus Christ – The God of Gods and the Prince of princes” on Answering Islam. This was an unashamed, word for word reading from an online article during what was presumably supposed to be a demonstration of McLatchie’s “apologetics”, apparently plagiarism is now part of his apologetics:

Do honesty, integrity and professionalism no longer matter in the world of Christian apologetics?

and God knows best.

    • Reading an article from someone else during a debate has nothing to do with what you say.
      You pathetic attempts at saying that the Quran copies from other sources has no foundation. If it copied from them then you would recognize plagiarism which is not the case with the Quran.
      This is the case however with the bible like Matthew and Luke copying Mark.
      Furthermore things contained in other sources which are not found in your bible means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to us cus your bible is not the Word of God. End of story.

      Plagiarism means to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own and/or to use this without crediting the source.

      The Quran states that it is nothing new and credits previous revelations as having the same message.

  3. Yet plagiarism is not an issue for you when it’s your Bible borrowing from Canaanite mythology to describe your god as an aged man with white hair!

    Keep running Bad Samaritan!

  4. Could he have had permission from the author or was involved in the original?

    • He definitely was not involved in decade old articles. Even if he had permission, that would not have precluded him from the responsibility of citing his sources and he didn’t do that. In fact, he cited not a single source except for all the Bible quotes he used.
