Florida televangelist loses show after Muslims complain

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida: A Christian televangelist in Florida who harshly criticizes Islam and other religions said Friday that his late-night program is being pulled off the air because of pressure from a Muslim group.

Earlier this month, officials from the Council on American Islamic Relations wrote a letter to the TV station's owners asking for an investigation of the show it broadcasts, "Live Prayer with Bill Keller."

In a May 2 broadcast, the televangelist said Islam was a "1,400-year-old lie from the pits of hell" and called the Prophet Mohammed a "murdering pedophile." He also called the Quran a "book of fables and a book of lies."

Council officials asked for equal air time for Florida Muslims to counter Keller's comments, but never got the chance, the St. Petersburg Times reported in its Friday editions.

Station manager Laura Caruso of WTOG, which airs the show, said the decision to end Keller's contract was a programming one, made by station executives and the televangelist.

But after speaking with CBS executives, the Islamic group claimed credit for Keller's demise. His last broadcast will be Aug. 31.

"They really based their decision upon our letter," said Ramzy Kilic, the group's civil rights coordinator. "They really did not know that Bill Keller was involved with this kind of anti-Muslim rhetoric."

Keller said his "Bible-based" message has not changed in the five years the program has aired.

"(CAIR) intimidated the folks in New York, and the folks in New York caved in," Keller said.

Keller said he is starting a new morning TV show on another Tampa Bay area station that will debut Sept. 3.

A telephone message left by The Associated Press at the new station Keller says he will be working at was not immediately returned.

Ahmed Bedier, executive director of the Tampa office of CAIR said the council is weighing its options on what to do regarding Keller's supposed new employment.

"Obviously we have concerns, Bedier said. "He's more of a liability with stations than an asset."

Yeah...It was called the A.C.L."Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....we're not touching that with a ten-foot pole".

You won't hear anything from them...mainly because Anthony D. Romero, who is the Executive Director

of the American Civil Liberties Union, is openly homosexual and (in my opinion) hates anything to do with Christianity. http://www.aclu.org/about/staff/13279res20030205.html

Maybe it was the way he was raised. Makes ya think...

Then again. Mohammed was a kid toucher.

Wasn't CAIR involved in funding terrorist organizations? Why the fuck does any media outlet pay attention to them?

The ACLU has fought for the rights of Christians on many occasions.

They defend everyone's right to free expression. Some of the people they defend are expressing some awful shit, like NAMBLA, but the constitution guarantees their right to speak and the ACLU fights for the constitution.

Good find...

If this is true...I stand corrrrrrrrected.

However, they most likely won't stand up for this preacher because he got let go. They won't stand up for them, because they'd probably fear what some muzzies would do to them.

All in all. Mohammed sucks on my prick. I have a bounty on my head (as most Americans do)...along with my other brothers-in-arms. So fuck 'em, (the extremist Muzzies anyway)
