The Brother Stair Files

    The 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.
