I don't think it was meant to offend-- if this is the preacher I think it
is, there was actually a newspaper article about him last year, when he
stated that he didn't need a radio license, that Jesus wanted him to
preach, so he was going to do so. I remember it because I was scheduled
for a Let's Talk About Radio and I recall commenting on some of the illegal
pirates who hide behind religion. I too agree that we need low-power
stations, but to say that your particular religious belief gives you the
right to take over a place on the dial is problematic, no matter who says
it. I wondered at that point why nobody had shut him down, but I am told
his station is actually popular amongst some of the immigrant population,
so maybe the FCC didn't find it to be a priority to shut him down the way
they stormed Radio Free Allston way back when...
