The Origin of Meredith's Recycled Words

Some readers may recall my post concerning Meredith's recycled words in his booklet, The Ten Commandments, about some African Christians who became atheist as a result of revulsion at the widespread materialism of "western" civilization. Recently I traced the story's ultimate source. That story originated from the November 1960, Plain Truth, p. 9.

Meredith introduced that story giving the appearance that it came "Several years ago". One looking at that booklet's 2004 date would be forgiven for not realizing that this story actually occurred about forty-five years before this booklet was published!
