ST PETERSBURG, Fla., Sept. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- Bill Keller, leader of the world's largest interactive Christian website for 11 years, Liveprayer.com, has harshly criticized the mainstream press endorsement of the "ground zero victory mosque," while condemning the opening of his new 9-11 Christian at Ground Zero. Keller states, "The mainstream press has been supportive of the memorial being built by Muslims to their greatest military victory in the 1400 years of Islam, 9/11/2001, yet they are condemning our new 9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero."
Keller goes on, "When talking about the mosque, the press labeled anyone who thinks it is not in good taste as 'Islamaphobic,' and 'haters,' yet are now calling me every derogatory name you can think of for opening a Christian Center by ground zero to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ." Keller's "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero" has not only been featured on MSNBC, but far left media sites like Salon.com, The Huffington Post, and the Daily Kos to name a few.
Keller's 9-11 Christian Center will begin holding services this Sunday, September 5th in the ballroom of the New York Marriott by ground zero through the end of the year. They will move into their permanent facility on January 1st.
Keller stated that he sees this as an incredible opportunity to take a stand for Christ within a block of the hallowed ground where the World Trade Center Towers once stood, and give people a place where they can come to pray and find true peace and hope at a time when so many lives are in turmoil.
Keller is no stranger to conflict with Islam. In 2007, under pressure from the extremist Muslim group CAIR, Keller's highly rated nightly TV program that ran for 4 1/2 years on a CBS owned station in Tampa, Florida, was cancelled by CBS because he refused to stop telling his viewers that "according to the Bible Islam is a 1400-year-old lie from hell, and that history clearly shows Mohammed was a murdering pedophile who propagated his false religion through hatred, violence, and death."
Keller also has numerous fatwas (sentences of death) issued against him for a video he sent in 2006 to Osama Bin Laden that was played worldwide in which Keller encouraged Bin Laden to "renounce the lies of Islam" and come to faith in Jesus Christ.
In asking Keller about what he hopes to accomplish with the new 9-11 Christian Center, he said, "If the Muslims can, without conscience, build a mosque to propagate their religion of violence and hate a block away from where their Muslim brothers perpetrated the greatest act of terror on US soil, killing 3,000 innocent souls in the process, we can open a place where people can come to hear the truth of the Bible and learn about the peace, love, and saving grace of Jesus Christ."
