Florida Televangelist Loses Christian Program
Live Prayer with Bill Keller has been given the ax after Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wrote a letter earlier this month complaining about the Christian ministry,
CAIR which claims to be an advocate for justice and mutual understanding and defender of civil liberties, was successful at getting television executives to pull the plug on the late night program.
Bill Keller ministering Christianity, spoke harshly about Islam during a May 02 broadcast calling Islam, "...1.400 year old lie from the pits of hell..."
Ramzy Kilic, Civil Rights Coordinator for CAIR, said in an interview with the Associated Press, "...his last broadcast will be on August 31...they (CBS) really based their decision upon our letter."
Bill Keller told AP, "...CAIR intimidated the folks in New York and the folks in New York caved..." Keller said that he will be returning to television on September 3 on a new morning Tampa show.
Ahmed Bedier, Executive Director of the religious intolerant CAIR has said, "...the Council is weighing its options on what to do regarding Keller's supposed new employment..."
