Finnish TV drops U.S. televangelist's show
HELSINKI, Finland (AP) - The only Christian TV channel in Finland said Thursday it will stop airing shows by American televangelist Pat Robertson because of his call to assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
The channel said its purpose was to spread a Christian message, not indulge in politics.
"It's sad that a leading Christian figure makes these kinds of statements," said the channel's executive, Martti Ojares. "The American style of mixing politics and Christian faith is also foreign to Finnish culture."
On Monday, Robertson called for the assassination of Chavez, saying the U.S. government should "take him out." Robertson apologized Wednesday after saying his comments had been misinterpreted.
The Helsinki-based TV7 began broadcasting in 2003, and has aired Robertson's show, The 700 Club, since then. The channel reaches about 1 million viewers in the country of 5.2 million.
A Colorado Springs christian leader is hitting the road to apologize for comments made by televangelist Pat Robertson.
Monday, Robertson called for the United States to assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. He later apologized.
National Association of Evangelicals President Ted Haggard, from Colorado Springs, is now traveling to meet with a Chavez advisor.
"The purpose of the meeting in Mexico City is to talk about evangelist in the United States and Venezuela....as well as recent economic and political positions of the Chavez administration," says an N.A.E. spokesperson.
Haggard says the meeting Friday will likely lead to a meeting with Chavez himself. Haggard is concerned Robertson's comments could impact missionaries in Central and South America.
