Copy-paste job

No wonder this encyclopedia article reads like an ad - it's stitched together from the "Who Are Lutherans For Life?" page:

  • Source: Lutherans For Life has a nation-wide network of state federations, chapters, Life Advocates, and Life Ministry Coordinators.

As a fun note, the last sentence actually tries to change the wording, but in doing so forgets a verb and contains a typo.

Seriously speaking, this is pretty bad, and the article should be deleted for being an obvious ad and for being a straight-up copy-paste job. --Sid 3050 21:15, 23 November 2011 (EST)

I don't think Lutherans For Life will mind.--Jpatt 21:31, 23 November 2011 (EST)
That's cute, but you're still violating the Conservapedia Commandments: "Do not copy from Wikipedia or elsewhere unless it was your original work." Note the complete lack of "unless you think they won't mind".
The guidelines offer you a small chance of salvaging this mess: "You are copying something that someone else wrote, with their explicit permission. This must also be noted on the article or talk page, and the original author should also note, for example on his user page on the original site, that he has provided such permission." Until they give this permission in some place where it can be verified, I'm replacing the copyvio with a stub. --Sid 3050 08:24, 24 November 2011 (EST)
I see you finally took a stand for Conservapedia. Thanks for helping make this encyclopedia the very best it can be. --Jpatt 11:59, 24 November 2011 (EST)
