US televangelist loses show after Muslims complain

A Christian televangelist in Florida who harshly criticizes Islam and other religions said Friday that his late-night program is being pulled off the air because of pressure from a Muslim group.


Earlier this month, officials from the Council on American Islamic Relations wrote a letter to the TV station's owners asking for an investigation of the show it broadcasts, ''Live Prayer with Bill Keller.'' In a May 2 broadcast, the televangelist said Islam was a ''1,400-year-old lie from the pits of hell'' and called the Prophet Mohammed a ''murdering pedophile.'' He also called the Quran a ''book of fables and a book of lies.'' (AP)
