Free to be shocked

Posted: September 20, 2012 at 3:50 pm

 

Many people in the majority world are so unfamiliar with our Freedom of Expression that they actually see it as a bad thing; something that opens the door to insult, shame, and conflict.

 

It isn’t until people hear something shocking that they might reconsider their assumptions. Just for a moment, imagine what it would be like to hear for the very first time that God loves you! Or even: Love your enemies!

 

Here’s an extract from a listener in the Middle East:

“Your station has changed my life. I used to hate Christians, but you have taught me that we can love one another and live in one country. … Please forgive my hatred.”

 

Radio isn’t just a good way to reach people who live in places of restricted expression. It is crucial.

International shortwave says what local people cannot.
