SBC Fundamentalists Run Broadcasting Arm Into Ground

The Dallas Morning News is reporting that the Southern Baptist Convention is selling its Radio and Television Commission to Charles Stanley's "In Touch Ministries" and exiting the broadcasting business.

This is just the latest example of the gross mismanagement of Southern Baptist Convention agencies by the fundamentalists who took it over in the 1980's.

For more detailed information about the mismanagement of the SBC's North American Mission Board, see Mary Kinney Branson's Spending God's Money: Extravagance and Misuse in the Name of Ministry.

Perhaps they had been counting on federal or state grants under the faith-based initiatives to pay for their operations, and got out-lobbied by more aggressive fundamentalists.
