May 5, 2008: Dobson Up for Radio Hall of Fame, Schools and Religious Expression, Scamming Christians, Evangelical and Scientist Unite

May 5th, 2008 · No Comments

James Dobson had been nominated for the Radio Hall of Fame. In Wisconsin, public schools agree to allow religious expression of art. A California man is accused of an investment scam targeting Christians. And an evangelical leader unites with a Nobel laureate scientist. Let’s get on to the links…

Christian leader James Dobson’s broadcast, which is heard daily on more than 3,000 radio stations across North America and also in 27 languages across 160 countries, has been nominated for the National Radio Hall of Fame. Voting is free via a national online balloting between May 1st and July 15th.

A public school district in Wisconsin has agreed to allow religious expression in student artwork to settle a lawsuit.

In Santa Ana, California, Federal authorities arrested a man accused of running an investment scheme that netted more than $25 million by targeting Christian investors nationwide. Up to 80 percent of investors were churchgoing Christians and many joined the program after being approached by fellow worshippers through a referral system, according to court papers.

And finally for today…

A Nobel laureate scientist, Dr. Eric Chivian, and a leader of the evangelical Christian movement, Rev. Richard Cizik, got together for lunch in 2005 and eventually formed the Scientists and Evangelicals Initiative. That initiative strives to unite the their respective communities to help bring an environmental message into the evangelical movement.

Have they been successful? It looks that way. This odd pair of the environmental movement have been listed in Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world!

That wraps it up for today!
