Several reports indicate that the pastor for Hillary Clinton, Rev. Bill Shillady, plagiarized e-mails that he sent to the former Democrat candidate during the presidential election.

Those e-mails were collected to create a volume titled, “Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

CNN first posted an e-mail Shillady had sent to Clinton the day after the election. A portion of that e-mail reads:

For the disciples and Christ’s followers in the first century, Good Friday represented the day that everything fell apart. All was lost. The momentum and hope of a man claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah who was supposed to change everything, had been executed.

Rev. Matthew Deuel noted that the passage seemed to match something he had written in a previous blog post. Tell us what you think:

For the disciples and Christ followers in the first century, Good Friday represented the day that everything fell apart. All was lost. The momentum and hope of a man, claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah who was supposed to change everything, had been executed.

It’s not difficult to see the similarities, but we ran that entry through the Copyspace plagiarism checker, and a 98% plagiarism assessment was attained.

 

Clinton’s image appears on the cover of Shillady’s book and she wrote the forward for her former pastor.

Via Fox News Insider:

Hillary Clinton’s pastor plagiarized the work of another minister in part of his new book, according to reports.

“Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton” is based on emails that Rev. Bill Shillady, of the United Methodist Church, sent to Clinton during her presidential campaign and just after her loss to Donald Trump.

But now it’s been revealed that not all of the writings in the book are Shillady’s own.

Other excerpts are clearly lifted from Duell’s work. For instance, Duell wrote:

Death will be shattered. Hope will be restored. Redemption is coming. But first, we must live through the darkness and seeming hopelessness of Friday.

Shillady’s post-election e-mail states:

Death will be shattered. Hope will be restored. But first, we must live through the darkness and seeming hopelessness of Friday.

Shillady made news recently when he claimed Hillary is looking to become a pastor herself, following her devastating loss to Donald Trump.

Perhaps she could provide her own devotion to the pastor about the perils of stealing. She might want to open that speech up to a wider audience.

Chelsea Clinton was recently slapped with her own lawsuit claiming she plagiarized the idea behind her book, “She Persisted.”
