Where Credit is Due

August 14, 2014

The owner of one of the phtographs I “acquired” through Google actually saw the photograph and left a comment on the site.

Here’s the picture I used in talking about starving and abused church members:

Here’s how he is doing now:

And here’s the comment she left on P-P.org

 I was excited to see that you have used my photo in your post. He’s usually used in animal related things (the one that led me to you is a petition for dog-fighting), but I can see why he was used here. He’s actually a fairly famous guy. His story and his photos have been in a few magazines and featured on tons of websites. Someone used the photo, and used you as the photo credit (even though you don’t own the photo and have used it just as they did, likely from a Google search) and thus I came across your page. If you’re interested, his name is Tad. He has nearly 9k fans on Facebook and even has his own charity/foundation.

And here is where you get more pictures of Tad.  You can even ask the owner about contributing to the charity he (Tad) runs.

I love it when a story ends well.  I can only hope the poor creatures trapped in abusive churces end up as well off.
