Ergun Caner strikes back

Ergun Caner has been attempting for many years to scrub his record of purposeful exaggeration and outright lies. Before being fired by Liberty University, he hired a reputation-cleansing company that created several spammy blogs and commented on others the same engrish mis-spelled posts.

He has recently taken to having a local lawyer and Facebook pal issue DMCA take-downs of videos of his sermons/testimonies as well as those containing (under fair-use) clips of his videos.

The above video is property of the US Government and was publically distributed. It contains Ergun Caner making several false claims about his life to US Marines destined to fight in the Middle East.

A few Christian bloggers took to posting the actual video files on their own personal servers. Ergun in turn, today, filed lawsuits against them.

Keep in mind, most of these videos were not the property of, nor recorded by Ergun Caner. Their copyright belongs to those who recorded them. This blatant misuse of the DMCA and the suing of Christian brothers should clear up anyone's doubts about Caner's reputation.

Please share this post and/or the link to the case so that the evangelical world will see Caner for what he is.

  1. So how come if Caner is so worried about this video, he isn't suing the Marine Corps for distributing it under FOIA?
