MhFM's Brother Michael Dimond Plagiarizing St Alphonsus Liguori

In His sermon on the mount Jesus gave his followers this sound advice:

"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." - St Matthew 7:15

In the very next verse Christ explains how to recognize these perverse self-aggrandized buffoons:

"By their fruits you shall know them." - St Matthew 7:16

Plagiarism is but one of the fruits cultivated by these vainglorious un-holy usurpers of authority we’ve been warned about.

One such example of this breech of ethics points an accusing figure directly at Frederic (a.k.a. Brother Michael) Dimond of MhFM who for the first 13 minutes of his video “Death and the Journey into Hell” utilizes the work of St Alphonsus Liguori without giving him credit.

Listen closely to MhFM’s purported Benedictine Superior detailing "Death and the Journey into Hell", presenting Saint Alphonsus Liguori's work as if it were his own.

[Fair Use Notice: I present the following in an effort to clarify and advance understanding of the religious and social issue raised in the related MhFM video. I believe presenting this information constitutes a “fair use” of any possible copyrighted material as stipulated in section 107 of the US Copyright Law.]

“Preparation for Death; or, Considerations on the Eternal Maxims” (8th edition - 1854) by St Alphonsus can be download a PDF copy of St Alphonsus Liguori work at: https://ia803105.us.archive.org/20/items/preparationforde00ligu/preparationforde00ligu.pdf

Once you have a copy then open it to page 9, start the MhFM's video “Death and the Journey Into Hell (3rd Edition)“ found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvieFJhJFK0 and judge for yourself.

In comparing the PDF text with the video be sure and skip the "Affections and Prayer" sections between each point. You will notice that Brother Michael took a tremendous amount of “artistic liberty” in the plagiarizing of St Liguori’s work.

I believe I’ve presented enough of the audio from the MhFM video and St Liguori’s work to prove that Dimonds are guilty of plagiarism.

All this could have been avoided if Dimond had simply started his video with a disclaimer that stated something like "From St Alphonsus Liguori's work we learn that …” But ethics of that nature do not come easy for a narcissist of the caliber Frederick (a.k.a. Brother Michael) Dimond and his sibling and business partner Robert (a.k.a. Brother Peter) have evolved into over the years.

Your guess is as good as mine as to what feeble excuse these miscreant counterfeit Benedictines will conjure up in an attempt to deflect blame and justify plagiarizing St Liguori’s work.

Surely these brothers know full well that they have intentionally / deceitfully propagated a religious hoax on their base and readership. The first version of the video was published in 2004; which means they’ve had 15+ years to correct this error ... but haven't.

This leads one to ponder how much of their other material are actually plagiarized works? It should also call into question their claims of being latter day prophets and the last “true” catholic religious order in the world.

Yet, none of this should come as a surprise to anyone with a “sound Catholic mind”. The Dimond Brothers were never “sent” out to preach and teach by the bishops of Christ church. There is no "Apostolicity" (holy orders and authority) found within MhFM.

Thus, that leaves only one other alternative; which states that these religious miscreants succumbed to temptation and agreed to serve the “father of lies” (selling their souls), becoming his “Useful Idiots” in exchange for his help in taking control of Joseph Natale’s religious community after Joseph's death.

For years now I have warned the Dimond Brothers and their base that a day of reckoning was approaching due to their open rebellion against the Church and the promotion of heresy and schism on social media. I’d lay odds in favor of that day arriving sooner rather than later ... if it hasn’t already arrived

It is out of charity that I say again … God will not be mocked and he will indeed extract his vengeance out upon them and their followers should they not humble themselves and cease their heretical / recalcitrant activities against Christ one, holy, Catholic and apostolic church.

It's still not too late to repent.
