Don't get your hopes up too high Will.  Even without this video the
existing evidence is compelling enough for Matanya to apologize. Btw,
he ought to apologize to Sharon for accusing her of subterfuge.  And
why does he need you to get the tape for him?  What is preventing him
from buying it himself?

In the end you will get "an apology" consisting mainly of a rant about
the fact that Parkening has made a public declaration of his Christian
beliefs in the context of music.

My interest in this thread began because I thought that perhaps Ophee
was onto something.  But the more I looked the weaker his case became.
In the end I was appalled that a music publisher would embark on such
an unfounded smear campaign.  It is now plainly evident that Matanya
Ophee is deceitful.
