NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Pastor and cultural apologist Voddie Baucham challenged Christian broadcasters at their annual convention on Saturday to not buy into the "gay is the new black" propaganda, but instead to remain committed to defending biblical marriage on the airwaves.
Baucham, who preaches at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, Texas, knew that he would make a lot of people uncomfortable or squirm in their seats by raising the issue of homosexuality at the opening session of the 2011 National Religious Broadcasters.
"When it comes to Christian broadcasters, we are nervous, even afraid to deal with this subject matter," he told NRB attendees at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. more >>

Ninety years ago, the first Christian program – the worship service of Calvary Episcopal Church – went out over the air on KDKA in Pittsburgh. Since that time, Christian broadcasting has flourished in the United States and around the world.
“Not only do I think Christian broadcasting is still relevant and vibrant, I’m increasingly impressed at how the Lord is using every aspect of media technology to get the Gospel to unreachable areas via radio, TV and Internet programs,” said Craig Parshall, senior vice president and general counsel for the National Religious Broadcasters, a trade association based in Manassas, Va.
Today, approximately 2,400 Christian radio stations and around 100 full-power Christian television stations send out the Gospel message via Christian music, preaching and teaching programs, and Christian talk shows. NRB estimates that between 300 and 400 Christian production companies produce programming for radio and TV stations, in addition to thousands of churches that broadcast some content, usually Sunday morning services. more >>
