What a curious misunderstanding, here in the comments section.

My comment is that "Faith" and "Cult" often reside at opposite ends of the spectrum, and I am not even talking about faith-based formats.

I am talking about a mind-set.

Are your beliefs about your business dogmatic and air-tight? Or are you comfortable in the unknown?

I posit that the need "to be sure", too often takes you down the path of the former, creating a spurious religion of sorts.

While the willingness to fearlessly "stand in the unknown" actually is act of faith.

The latter, by the way, is where creativity and innovation are born.

I am unconvinced Jeff either read or considered the article. My speculation is: He saw the term "faith-based", jumped to contusions, freaked out and fired off the (above) confusing missive.

What is the sample size? On What does Mr. Robinson base his findings? His derogatory comments surely are not true of K-Love or the Salem Networks? These large Faith radio networks are some of the finest in the country irrespective of being Christian. If he were to make a similar statement about Hispanic radio would it not be considered discriminatory? "Cult like" is a loaded term.
