The Brother Stair Files
unfolding sex scandal involving Brother R. G. Stair and the wives and daughters
of his Overcomer Ministry followers rocked the Christian Shortwave medium
throughout most of 2002 and, as this drama continues to play itself out through
2003, listeners will want to stay abreast of the latest developments.
Troubed Times has
reported extensively on this situation, and the links listed here represent
the articles, editorials, and letters that have appeared in our space during
the past year. We have also provided links to the extensive reporting
done locally in South Carolina by the Colleton County Press and
Standard, courtesy of the Net Team website.
As Brother Stair's dirty linen gets a public airing
in the court system, the repercussions for Christian Broadcasting will become
apparent and many questions will be posed. If the litigation and civil
suits that will be forthcoming succeed in establishing liability beyond
the Overcomer Ministry and within the radio medium itself, the resulting
reregulation of the industry could result in a shortwave medium as "religiously
correct" as Christian FM Broadcasting is. Add this page to your bookmarks
