Living Proof Ministries vs. Living Proof Inc. - A Clarification

A correction, an apology, and a developing story : I've withdrawn my story posted here on October 20th due to an inaccuracy : there are apparently two "Living Proof" entities involved in radio broadcasting, and I received an email from a representative of Living Proof Ministries, the nonprofit founded by evangelist Beth Moore, to the effect that Living Proof Ministries and Living Proof Inc. are not legally related entities.

The confusion was somewhat widespread and seems to have originated in an inaccuracy on the WAVM website which identified the competing applicant for the WAVM low power FM broadcast band as the "Living Proof Inc" associated with Beth Moore's "Living Proof" ministry. That was incorrect, and at least two Boston area newspapers also carried stories repeating that inaccurate attribution. My apologies to Beth Moore and Living Proof Ministry for my part in further broadcasting the mistake.

This confusion has proved oddly serendidipitous however, as an exploration into the correct "Living Proof Inc." has revealed a little known and startling avenue by which the Christian right is expanding an ability to bring its message to a wide sector of the American public, even to Massachusetts and on a national scale.

I will be introducing this story, likely in segments, for the upcoming launch of the new Talk to Action website. Stay tuned.

I myself have written an extensive expose of this group in relation to the attempted takeover of this radio station at this link.

Not only is the dominionist broadcaster you mentioned listed but many other dominionist broadcasters are on the same network; Living Proof is also affiliated with Calvary Church International which is the single worst offender in regards to mass hijacking of LPFM licenses (the school in question is an LPFM licensee) for religious "godcasting".

In fact, the mass hijacking of LPFM licenses by dominionist broadcasters is a major problem in that LPFM licenses are being made unavailable to non-dominionist community broadcasters like school systems (the very groups for whom LPFM licenses were originally created for).

The fact that the FCC has at least one hard dominionist as advisory staff (Penny Nance, linked with several dominionist pro-censorship groups) isn't terribly encouraging in this regard, either.

Calvary Church (as a group) is linked with dominionist activity--one of the Calvary Church groups simulcasted on Living Proof Radio is in fact the same group suing University of California because the latter has ruled two major dominionist curricula educationally insufficient. (As for the educational insufficiency, I've done a two-part informal review of A Beka, one of the two curricula packages ruled as unsuitable (and one of the three most commonly used dominionist/Christian Reconstructionist curricula packages used in the US in homeschool and private school programs).) The group has also been linked with coercive religious tactics (similar to many other dominionist groups).

The stew thickens.....

Apparently WAVM was confused concerning the entity which had applied for the WAVM broadcast band - or that was the import of an email I just received. I'll have to look further into this.

This is very interesting. Do keep me posted, so I can post corrections on the Dark Christianity website.

Actually, Sunfell, the corrections here are probably not necessary on Dark Christianity (the major question is in regards to the relationship of Living Proof Ministries to Living Proof Inc.).

The article I've done focused on Living Proof Inc., so we should be good on that. (And yes, Bruce, you're more than welcome to use the article in full or in part.)

I saw the retraction of your incorrect information about Beth Moore's organization, but didn't see a public apology. Did I miss it?
