The Williamsons and The Gospel Station Endorse Viral Video

WELEETKA, Okla.August 25, 2017 – The award-winning Oklahoma-based group the Williamsons have been affiliated with The Gospel Station radio network based in Ada, Oklahoma for many years. Recently, the network took up a cause when the Americans For the Separation of Church and State took issue with the cross on the roof of a chapel located on the grounds of East Central University in Ada. They demanded that the university remove the cross and remove all religious books as well as the altar from the chapel. The chapel was built in 1957 using private funds and has been open to people of all faiths to use for prayer and reflection.

Randall Christy, president of the network, produced a brief video at the University about the group’s demands. It has been viewed over 6 million times!

The University had already began removing items from the chapel and had planned for a crane to remove the cross. However, because of the great public outcry, due in part to the success of the video, Oklahoma State legislators contacted East Central and asked them to cease with the removal of items at the chapel. The altar and the books have been returned it to the chapel! Oklahoma State Attorney General Michael Hunter has stated that if this misguided organization should proceed with the lawsuit the state of Oklahoma would take the case and defend the right of the cross to remain on the chapel which could very well end at our nation’s Supreme Court.

Donnie of the Williamsons stated, “We are so glad to be a part of The Gospel Station and it’s related ministries such as the World Mission Team with whom we have literally been around the world. This cause is just one of the many reasons why we are honored to help promote this video and stand for the cross!”

Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
