In 1982 this monk and author, penned the quote: The Opposite of Love Is Indifference!
However, I was not rich or famous, or at the time, book published. Thus, like all things that get public recognition, this slogan was published on a web hosting service that went extinct. Then it was re-posted on Geocities
in the mid-nineties, which also went extinct.
With evidence of this, date stamped on a 3.5" floppy disk, I could care less if Elie Wiesel
, or anyone else, read this way back when, then reworded it, or whatever, because it is not a copyrightable quote anyway. I never read anything of his, so it did not come from that direction. The first person to publish a thing, does not mean it originated from them; in fact, that would be rare at best. There is nothing new under the sun!
In fact, it is not even a new idea
: This author, merely a monk of YHVH, got the idea from scripture. Plus, with many books consumed (from the 70's onward) in the Philosophy category, it is likely to have been published in one of them, in some form or another. It is doubtful (before 1986) that Wiesel read from this monk's obscure web-pages; this is because the general notion of it was published well before the first printed bible
, by others globally, post-Christendom.
This page is written in response to those who need to police the Web, arresting anything that they do not agree with. Since I never sought any credit for the quote, and honestly do not care if anyone believes any of this or not, anyone can quote it, and attach another name to it, if that pleases you. Plagiarism of any kind would be equal to lying, which (we) Messianic disciples never do.
As a Messianic disciple, everything ever done or written or published; all of it comes from the Indwelling Holy Spirit, and thus, it is not "owned" by, nor "originated" from this particular Oracle
, and as far as I am concerned, nothing original comes from humans at all! The only origins of Love
