    Former Florida governor fails to identify any ‘genuine’ conservatives on campaign team. Jeb Bush’s latest effort to court evangelical voters boomeranged when a Christian radio network boss challenged him for hiring two political aides who support same-sex marriage, and the former Florida governor conceded that he couldn’t identify any “genuine” conservatives in his inner circle. The details of Mr. Bush’s private phone call in mid-April with Rich Bott, whose religious radio network of 100 stations stretches from California to Tennessee within potential reach of 51 million listeners, were confirmed to The Washington Times by Mr. Bott and top aides to...

    A former Christian radio host, who admitted to raping an 11-year-old boy, had a rented storage unit where he kept a 'bondage kit' of handcuffs, chains and duct tape, a federal spokesman confirmed to MailOnline today. John Balyo, 35, has been charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct after he confessed last week to having sex with a child. It is claimed that Balyo, from Battle Creek, Michigan, paid a man to arrange a sex session with a minor for him.

    BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) --Bond has been set for a Christian Radio Broadcaster arrested for allegedly paying for sex with a young boy. 35-year-old John Balyo is being held for first degree criminal sexual conduct but isn’t expected to be formally charged until Monday. TV-3 reports that at a bond hearing early Saturday, bail was set at 500-thousand dollars. On Friday, Balyo, of Caledonia, had been put on paid leave by Cornerstone University, the owners of WCSG radio in Grand Rapids, where Balyo had been the morning host of a “Family Friendly” radio show. Saturday, the University released a new statement,...

    “Remember, not every being that occupies the unseen world, the spiritual world, is a good guy, is a good spirit.” Mr. Fisher said interfaith gatherings — specifically those that join Christians with Muslims — should be regarded with alarm, Raw Story reported. “No Christian, in space over which he has authority, should ever willingly allow another spiritual leader to invite the presence of demons into his sanctuary,” he said, Raw Story reported. “This is for the simple reason that if they are invited, they will come. Thus any clergyman, whether an evangelical pastor or the pope himself, compromises the spiritual...

    A Colorado radio host is urging listeners to give up Girl Scout cookies due to what he referred to as the organization's promotion of "lesbianism." Kevin Swanson, a pastor and right-wing activist, said on his "Generations Radio" program, which originates in Elizabeth, Colo., that he doesn't condone purchasing Girl Scout cookies because the organization promotes homosexuality and supports abortion, MSNBC reported Tuesday. "Please, I beg of you, stop buying Girl Scout cookies," Swanson said on Monday's radio broadcast. "I'd say you ought to say no to the Girl Scout cookies," Swanson said. "I don't want to support lesbianism, I don't...

    Any of us who have come to Christ later in life know the factors that led us to Him. The Spirit was tugging at me for a while. C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity started it. Like me, he was once an atheist. Until he could be one no more. “In 1929, I gave in, and admitted that God was God,” wrote Lewis, “perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.” A few committed people of faith did the rest for me, as I witnessed in them the power of the Holy Spirit. It was the power of their...

    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Officials at an Ohio university have ordered radios on campus shuttle buses be locked into one station and volume restricted after a student complained a driver was a playing a "far-right Christian political" channel at high volume. The Blade newspaper reports the policy was suggested by the University of Toledo's manager of transit services and gives drivers only an on/off option. In a memo, the manager, Steven John Wise, describes the selected station as "nonoffensive, work place type music, helpful weather info." Radio volume also is being restricted as a safety measure. The student made the...

On the air and from what I heard, business as usual. But it makes me wonder, is a hoax such as Camping's preaching and promising an actionable offense before the FCC? Imagine the uproar if Clear Channel, Entercom or Cumulus participated in such a "promotion." Yes, CC has thousands of stations and Family Radio has about a hundred. Still, Harold Camping's advisory cost some members of the listening public their...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Harold Camping to Speak Monday on Failed Prediction

    Harold Camping, the Oakland, California-based broadcaster who made a failed prediction about a cataclysmic doomsday said on Sunday he would make a statement on or by Monday night in a "public forum" to explain himself. An IBTimes reporter met him at his home in Alameda, Calif., and said he would explain in the forum tomorrow. When asked about his silence since the prediction, Camping said he needed more time seeing that his major prediction had failed, and wanted to think and recover, calling the event "a big deal." Camping, 89, has not been heard from since Saturday. In 1994, Camping...

    The "hate crimes" bill approved recently by Congress could be a problem for broadcasters -- most importantly, Christian broadcasters -- now that it has been signed into law. President Barack Obama has signed into law a measure that adds to the list of federal hate crimes attacks on people based on their sexual orientation. Congress approved the legislation last week as part of the $680-billion FY 2010 Defense Authorization bill. Appended to the hate crimes amendment was a statement ensuring that a religious leader or any other person cannot be prosecuted on the bases if his or her speech, beliefs,...

    Democrats continually tell America the Fairness Doctrine is dead. But if the threat of the return of government broadcast censorship was truly dead, there would be no need to keep reminding us. The latest reminder that the threat of the Fairness Doctrine survives, or more accurately its intended result – the destruction of conservative and Christian talk radio—is the appointment of Mark Lloyd as the FCC's new Associate General Counsel and Chief Diversity Officer. Prior to his appointment, Lloyd was a Senior Fellow with the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank funded by far-left billionaire George Soros...

    My favorite Christian radio station, KLTY in North Texas, has turned to politics. It has begun to advertise a Conference on Social Justice sponsored by Soujorners and Jim Wallis. Jim Wallis stands behind a facade of christian activism to further the aims of the democrat party and particularly, Barak Obama. I have written KLTY an email: "I am concerned with the advertising that you have been playing for the social justice conference in November. I have found, in the past, that anything that Jim Wallis and Sojourners’ have sponsored have been loose disguises for the furtherance of a progressive (if...

    WASHINGTON (CNS) -- The U.S. bishops' Committee on Communications is backing a July 20 call-in day to support the licensing of more low-power FM stations across the country. The call-ins aren't to radio stations, but to members of the Senate. The Local Community Radio Act of 2009, co-sponsored by Sens. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., and John McCain, R-Ariz., would authorize the Federal Communications Commission to license hundreds of new low-power FM stations. A committee hearing was held in June on the House version of the bill, which has 72 co-sponsors. Archbishop George H. Niederauer of San Francisco, chairman of the bishops'...

    It’s finally on the air! It has taken more than a year of intense prayer, and a meeting between Joshua Fund President Joel C. Rosenberg and the Hon. Nechirvan Barzani, the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), requesting his personal assistance. But by God’s grace, and with the kind assistance of the Prime Minister’s office, the Kurdish government of Iraq in May gave permission for a Christian radio station that The Joshua Fund has helped finance to officially begin broadcast operations. The establishment of such a station owned and operated by Iraqi followers of Jesus Christ is really...

    The president of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is repudiating statements made by a former convention official regarding President Barack Obama and the recent murder of abortionist George Tiller. On a recent webcast of his daily radio talk show, Wiley Drake, former second vice-president of the SBC, called last Sunday's murder of Tiller "an answer to prayer." Then during an interview with Alan Colmes on Fox News Radio, Drake said he was praying the same type of "imprecatory prayer" against the president of the United States. For years, Drake has encouraged the practice of praying words of judgment found throughout...
