MBC Student Stephen Harris On The Radio

Voice (MBC student newspaper) reporter Stephen Harris was featured in a half-hour interview on the Bob Enyart Live radio program a couple of weeks ago.

Abortion, Voting, and Stirring the Pot

enyart1Mr. Enyart was interviewing Stephen about the story he wrote for The Voice regarding Down Syndrome abortions - unfortunately much of the interview changed focus to items such as moral relativism and the fact that so many Christians voted for President Obama and, by extension, a "pro-abortion" agenda. The interview then went further to imply that most Multnomah Bible College students voted for Obama and therefore are engaged in the same "moral relativism" as other Christians (although, how they can know whether students voted and for whom, is beyond me).

(Note: MUblog is not making a judgement on voting habits of anyone, we are simply reporting the facts of the radio interview.)

Worthy Of Comment

(Full disclosure: since I run MU's public relations functions, I'm a little protective over MU's image in the community.)

I have to admit, I still don't know exactly how I feel about the interview. I am more than a little uncomfortable with the insinuations made regarding the spiritual health of MU and the students who come to learn their Bibles and love their Savior - but it is a fair and logical line of questioning for the interviewer to pursue. I'm just afraid that Bob Enyart ended up erroneously scaring some students and parents away from a college that strongly espouses absolutes of Biblical truth in an otherwise morally relativistic society!

I look forward to your thoughts in the comments section below.

What I do know is that Stephen Harris is a fantastic example of the types of students I'm proud of to have on campus!

The interview was broadcast over AM670 KLTT in Denver, the most powerful Christian radio station in the country (50,000 watts). The station has between 3.5 and 4.5 million listeners daily (plus it streams on the Internet and is on HD radio). The Bob Enyart Live show airs at 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
