A mysterious U.S.-funded advertising campaign promoting Christian values and “power for living” has caused an uproar here, prompting a ban on its television and radio spots and some self-searching on the part of Germany’s established churches.
Torri Walters, a Manhattan hair stylist, had seen the ads often enough to be intrigued. The 30-sec. TV spots featured celebrities such as Yankee pitcher Andy Pettitte and former Miss America Heather Whitestone McCallum testifying that their most important relationship was with God and praising a book called Power for Living.
It mystifies many that a private group is spending millions in ads to distribute its ‘Power for Living’ book. Some suggest that it’s simply a way to make the world a better place.
