Evangelist Issues MSNBC Host $100,000 Challenge

Evangelist Bill Keller has issued a $100,000 challenge to MSNBC host Chris Matthews to produce the official Hawaiian long-form birth certificate of President Barack Obama.

"Matthews parades around like he is a journalist, when in fact, all he does each night is act as a press agent for the president and his administration," says Keller, president of Bill Keller Ministries, which owns LivePrayer.com, a place people can go 24/7 for prayer.

"If he was a real journalist, go use the cast resources of Comcast/NBC/General Electric and produce a copy of the official Hawaiian long form birth certificate of President Barack Obama. A woman born the day before the president in Hawaii has produced hers, so the document has to exist if he was really born in Hawaii as he claims. If he can do that, I will be happy to give him $100,000."

Earlier this year, Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie stated that he was going to produce the official long form birth certificate to put an end to the controversy. After several weeks, Abercrombie now says he can't find the document and it may not exist.

Keller contends that if Abercrombie, a staunch supporter of the president and the man who runs Hawaii, can't pick up the phone and call his records department and get a copy of the president's birth certificate, it only adds fuel to the fire if the document ever existed in the first place.

"I am not interested in the Certificate of Live Birth the President has produced, since anyone can get that with a phone call. Also, the newspaper birth announcements came from the ordering of the Certificate of Live Birth," Keller says. "All I, or anyone interested has ever asked, is for the president to produce the same document anyone can produce if they are born in the United States in a day if they needed to. That is an official long form birth certificate showing the name of the hospital he was born in, the attending physician, and all other pertinent information a real birth certificate contains."

Matthews could not immediately be reached for comment. Charisma News will offer a follow up story if Matthews responds.
