News reports today include:
Conservative Christian televangelist Pat Robertson told citizens of a Pennsylvania town that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting “intelligent design” and warned them on Thursday not to be surprised if disaster struck.
Florida-based Coral Ridge Ministries (CRM), one of the largest and most active Christian ministries in the U.S. and the world, is working on repair and recovery in the wake of Hurricane Wilma. Though CRM’s facilities sustained some damage, a spokesman says daily operations are slowly returning to normal.
Fort Lauderdale, home to Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Dr. D. James Kennedy’s Center for Reclaiming America, and the broadcast outreaches of Coral Ridge Ministries, was hit hard by Hurricane Wilma. The storm, which roared across South Florida October 24 with sustained winds of more than 100 miles per hour, ripped the roof off Coral Ridge Presbyterian and allowed water to flow into the massive sanctuary. Some of the CRM offices also sustained major damage, including the ministry’s distribution center.
