From Witchcraft to Satellites,
Religious Broadcasting Has It

JAMES D. BESSER

Washington Correspondent

T

ethnology, pOlitics and
theories about every-
thing from witchcraft
to satellite transmission came
together at the 46th annual
convention of the National
Religious Broadcasters (NRB)
last week.
And, as usual, a visible part
of the gathering was a unique
perspective on Israel and the
Jewish people. "We worry a
lot about the Jewish people,"
said Tom Hess, a prophecy-
oriented author who was at-
tending a "briefing" for NRB
attendees at the Israeli Em-
bassy. "God's judgment is
coming upon the gentile na-
tions. God will be judging the
nations through Israel."
And Ted Beckett, president
of the Foundation for Israel,
also emphasized the role of
the Jewish state in the Chris-
tian prophecies. "The great-
est story of all time," Beckett
told a crowd that included
Christian broadcasters, pro-
Israel activists and represen-
tatives of the Israeli embassy,
"is that prophecies made
thousands of years ago are
coming true." Beckett cited
such advances as television,
satellites, tanks and atomic
weapons as examples of in-
ventions predicted in Scrip-
ture.
There are some 1,400 radio
outlets and 1,100 emphasiz-
ing Christian programming.
And despite recent well-
publicized scandals, elec-
tronic evangelism is a grow-
ing business. In 1988, almost
1,000 radio stations converted
to a Christian format or were
started from scratch.
So while this form of evan-
gelism is nothing new, the
burgeoning technology has
vastly increased the range of
Christian programming and
transformed its style. Recent
years have seen the emergen-
cy of nationwide networks,
mini-versions of the big-
league broadcast organiza-
tions like NBC. On radio, the
International Broadcast Net-
work, U.S.A. Radio and Inter-
national Media Service all
provide sophisticated satellite
facilities that enable a single
ministry to reach millions of
homes a day. On television,
Pat Robertson's Christian
Broadcasting Network has
set a new standard for
sophistication.
These networks include
traditional evangelical fare —
preachers reading from the
Christian Bible, earnest-

sounding lay people giving
their "testimonies" — but in-
creasingly, the emphasis is on
news and information pro-
grams with a strongly poli-
tical cast, including hourly
news broadcasts that emulate
secular broadcasts in style if
not substance. The popular
nationwide call-in shows offer
a deft blend of theology and
ultra-conservative politics.
Most of the major figures in
this increasingly sophis-
ticated business were at the
NRB gathering.
Doing live remote broad-
casts was Marlin Maddoux, a
Christian newscaster whose
daily nationwide call-in show
is strong on conspiracy
theories and Christian Right
politics.
Last year Maddoux, whose
program is heard on more
than 200 radio outlets, joined
other Christian broadcasters

Dan Quayle: USSR is still an evil
empire.

in waging an intensive battle
against the Civil Rights
Restoration Act, a bill active-
ly supported by most main-
stream Jewish groups. The
result was an unprecedented
barrage of calls that tied up
Capitol switchboards.
Another featured speaker
was Vice President Dan
Quayle, whose speech
hearkened back to the "evil
empire" view of the Soviet
Union that was popular in
the early days of the Reagan
presidency. Quayle suggested
that the Soviet Union's cur-
rent problems are due to its
leaders' "hatred of God."

Jewish groups were also
represented, and the Israeli
government was doing a brisk
business in brochures describ-
ing tours of the Holy Land.
The Committe for Accuracy in
Middle East Reporting
(CAMERA), was distributing
information on the intifada

Oliver North: Denounced U.S.
opening to PLO.

and the Palestine Liberation
Organization.
At a prayer breakfast on
Wednesday, Ambassador
Moshe Arad was scheduled to
appear as a featured guest
along with the ambassador
from South Africa. But Arad
canceled and was replaced by
another Israeli diplomat. At
the breakfast, keynote
speaker former Col. Oliver
North gave a thundering
denunciation of the thaw in
U.S.-Soviet relations.
The prayer breakfast was
coordinated with a blitz of
Capitol Hill visits by groups
like Americans for a Safe
Israel.
Later in the day, the Pro-
phetic News Network, a
Christian organization focus-
ing on Israel's role in the
"Last Days" of the Christian
prophetic scriptures, spon-
sored a briefing at the Israeli
embassy.

The meeting was also at-
tended by a Washington
evangelist who has generated
controversy with his "Focus
on Israel" radio program.
Dale Crowley Jr., scion of a
pioneering family in Chris-
tian radio, used a question
and answer period to object to
an IDF-produced film on
Israel's precarious strategic
situation.
Crowley earned some notor-
iety last year when he
picketed the cornerstone lay-
ing ceremony for the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Mu-
seum. In articles in Christian
publications, Crowley has
called the museum "a shame
and a blot on the beautiful
and glorious monuments of
our nation's Capital," and
referred to "the so-called
holocaust, the extent of which
is in serious question."
