ST PETERSBURG, Fla., Oct. 14 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Bill Keller, leader of the world's largest interactive Christian website for 11 years, Liveprayer.com, has received numerous death threats from Muslims over the years for his stand that Islam is "a false religion, with a false book, and a false prophet."
Keller, who has been in the national and international press recently for opening his "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero" as a response to the proposed mosque by the site of the attacks of 9/11, received a detailed call from a person stating they represent the Islamic Center of Southwest Florida in Ft. Myers. The call explicitly stated that Keller would be killed for his disrespect of "Allah" and the "Islamic religion."
Keller is no stranger to conflict with Islam. In 2007, under pressure from the extremist Muslim group CAIR, Keller's highly rated nightly TV program that ran for 4 1/2 years on a CBS owned station in Tampa, Florida, was cancelled by CBS because he refused to stop telling his viewers that "according to the Bible Islam is a 1400-year-old lie from hell, and that history clearly shows Mohammed was a murdering pedophile who propagated his false religion through hatred, violence, and death."
Keller also has numerous fatwas (sentences of death) issued against him for a video he sent in 2006 to Osama Bin Laden that was played worldwide in which Keller encouraged Bin Laden to "renounce the lies of Islam" and come to faith in Jesus Christ.
