THEIST_WATCH Msg : 72 Written : 08/11/94 06:15pm From : ROBIN MURRAY-O'HAIR Status : To : ALL Subj : Pat Robertson Again? Pat Robertson Again? Well, what can we say. His name does keep coming up. It seems that the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) has become "umbrella" for at least ten out-and-out business ventures, with plans for more. One such is a theme park projected to be built in the next several years in either Virginia Beach, or Chesapeake, VA. He is also planning a retirement center. The ministry owns hundreds of undeveloped acres in both cities. Also Robertson has just negotiated an agreement with the Vietnamese government for CBN to start a 28-channel cable system in that county. Why worry about that now? Well, the big question is "Will they all be tax exempt?" Currently he owns a charter airplane company, a travel agency, an Oklahoma radio station, a hotel, and a news service which claims to compete with the Associated Press. Robertson recently purchased the traveling Ice Capades of Dorothy Hamill, who will stay with the show. The Business Coalition for Fair Competition located in Alexandria, Virginia, is moaning that Robertson is bankrolled in all his ventures by the money which continues to pour into his "700 Club." With capitalism, all is fair in love, war, and religion. *********************************************************************** * * * American Atheists website: * * PO Box 140195 FTP: * * Austin, TX 78714-0195 * * Voice: (512) 458-1244 Dial-THE-ATHEIST: * * FAX: (512) 467-9525 (512) 458-5731 * * * * Atheist Viewpoint TV: * * Info on American Atheists:, * * & American Atheist Press include your name and mailing address * * AANEWS -Free subscription: * * and put "info aanews" in message body * * * * This text may be freely downloaded, reprinted, and/other * * otherwise redistributed, provided appropriate point of * * origin credit is given to American Atheists. * * * ***********************************************************************
