Here’s The Scoop … Thin Skin Seems To Be Catching …

THIN SKINNED POLITICIANS… PERHAPS…

Dear Readers…looks like Comm. Silverstone and the Gang did not like the “slippery slope” and spent some time trying to cause a problem…The problem is that most people are decent and do not fall “prey”..(pun intended)…for dirty dealing desperate acts…I appreciate the inquiry from Tara B. and will of course find another photo online…But the time and the act of the “Mc-Furth Gang”… speaks volumes …and of course gives more credence to the content of that post that set them off!…SLIPPERY SLOPE….leads to another Silverstone slip up in it’s aftermath!…

Dear Barbara,

Hello and good morning to you.

I’m writing because someone emailed me about your linking to a graphic off of my blog. I’m guessing he was referring to this post:

http://bcbts.wpengine.com/2009/10/25/heres-the-scoop-slippery-slope-for-silverstone/

This person seemed to assume that the graphic belonged to me and asked if you had permission to use it.

Of course, The Slippery Slope is copyrighted by Peacemaker Ministries, not me. And I believe I consistently refer people to the Peacemaker Ministries’ version of it whenever I refer to it on my blog (and indicate that it is copyrighted too)—at least I hope I do so.

Anyway … I surely don’t mean to tell you what to do with your site, but before I write this other person back about the graphic, I’m wondering if perhaps it might be wise for you to consider giving attribution to Peacemaker Ministries by indicating that it is copyrighted by them and by:

1. Linking to their site: http://www.peacemaker.net/site/c.aqKFLTOBIpH/b.958151/k.5236/The_Slippery_Slope_of_Conflict.htm

2. Adding their copyright language: http://www.peacemaker.net/site/c.aqKFLTOBIpH/b.932025/k.E794/Policy_for_Using_and_Teaching_Copyrighted_Material.htm

Reprinted or adapted from The Peacemaker: A Biblical Guide to Resolving Personal Conflict, Ken Sande (Baker Books, 3d ed., 2003). Peacemaker® Ministries. www.Peacemaker.net.

I’ll wait a few hours before responding to the other email to see what you decide to do.

Hope you have a great day—

Yours sincerely,
Tara B.

Hello, I found the picture by scanning google images ..I can change it …I did not realize it went to a ministry organization. I am sure the person that contacted you was unhappy because it was used on my political blog. I hope you are not bothered or used by them again. Please accept my apology for any time taken. Thank you for contacting me first. I appreciate it.

Barbara Cole
