I tried hard to search for a thread on this topic but could not find one, using both the “search” tool and paging through the “Popular Media” forum for a few months. Apologies if it’s a repeat…
If you go on K-LOVE or Air1’s websites, you will find that the number one item in their “Our Beliefs” page is a little disconcerting:
“1.The Bible to be the inspired, only infallible and authoritative Word of God.”
Sounds harmless enough, but in my Church, the Pope has laid down some infallible teachings on the revelation, and we have some pretty rich Sacred Tradition, too. The phrase “only infallible”, to me, is a clear rejection of the authority of a higher Church, like the Catholic bishops, and of the Sacred Tradition that is so important to us.
Stations like these ask for donations from listeners to keep them on the air. I listen to them often and have taken a lot of good from the music they play. If “the laborer is worthy of his hire,” I should be giving them money. But their anti-authority “beliefs” statements bother me. Is it ok to donate to radio stations like K-LOVE or Air1?
