The National Black Church Initiative has Ordered Security for Rev.

Anthony Evans in Light of the Shooting at the Family Research

 Council

 

NBCI Expresses its Sincere Sorrow to the Victim that was Shot

 

Washington, D.C.- The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a coalition of 34,000 African American churches spanning 15 denominations and representing 15.7 million African Americans and its board of directors have ordered security for NBCI President Rev. Anthony Evans because of the NBCI stance against same-sex marriage. The shooting underscores the violence that has plagued the same-sex marriage debate.  The security measures are necessary to protect Rev. Evans and the NBCI stance for Christ and against same-sex marriage. 

 

Ms. Debra Coley-Bagley, chair of NBCI's Board of Directors says, "Rev. Evans is a brave Christian clergy who stands on the Word of God, and we would hate for him to be harmed by the forces of evil that support same-sex marriage.  We do, however, commend leaders of the gay community who have denounced the shooting of the staff member at the Family Research Council."

The NATIONAL BLACK CHURCH INITIATIVE SAYS TO GEORGE ZIMMERMAN THAT IT WAS NOT GOD'S WILL TO KILL TRAYVON MARTIN

 God is the author and finisher of life

 

Washington, D.C.- The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) a coalition of 34,000 churches spanning 15 denominations and representing 15.7 million African Americans is stunned and ashamed that in his first interview with Fox News reporter Sean Hannity, George Zimmerman claimed that it was God's will that the tragedy unfold between Trayvon Martin and himself.  This is the type of backwoods theology that blames God for the ignorance of the human condition.  One can never justify taking anyone's life, nor can they justify taking their own life.  God affirms life, He is not in the business of creating human situations whereby an individual takes another individual's life and them blames it on God by saying it was His will.  There are wars and man's inhumanity to man, but this is a direct result of man's disobedience to God's will as opposed to God's will in itself. 

 

God does not need to create a tragedy in order to teach man.  Man creates his own tragedy because of his disobedience to the will of God.  So for Zimmerman to claim that God created that situation for him to take Trayvon's life is utterly ridiculous because it is the opposite of God's will.  If Zimmerman would have followed the heavenly instruction as given by the police dispatcher to not follow Trayvon, then he would be alive today.  So it stands to reason, that this calamity unfolded because Zimmerman created this tragedy by his disobedience.  He failed to heed the warning that God was trying to give him through that police dispatcher-not to follow Trayvon Martin.  It is this kernel truth of why he decided to follow Martin upon which this case will be decided.  So, Zimmerman lied on God when he said it was God's will that this catastrophe occur.

 

Rev. Anthony Evans, President of NBCI says, "This is why the Church and preachers exist-to clear up any mystery concerning the intent and the character of God.  We will not allow anyone whether black, white, Latino, Asian, short, tall, Protestant or Catholic justify their evil intentions by blaming it on God through Christ Jesus as human history unfolds before our eyes."

The National Black Religious Broadcasters Urge Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to Keep the Viewability Rule in Place

 

Rule change will deny our members the right to spread the Gospel

 

Washington, DC - The National Black Religious Broadcasters (NBRB) is a national coalition of over 10,000 black religious broadcasters would like to express our concerns that the expiration of the "viewability" rule could have a serious negative impact on viewers of faith-based programming throughout the country. Much of this programming is viewed on must-carry television stations.

 

We would like to ensure that our content reaches everyone who would like to see it - including those consumers that cannot afford, or are not aware that they need, a new cable box.

 

The Rev. Sheldon Williams, President of NBRB says, "if the FCC changes the viewability rule this would be grossly unfair to black religious broadcasters throughout the country. Therefore, we strongly urge the Federal Communications Commission to extend the rule because many of our 10,000 members will be directly and adversely affected by the in action of the FCC. NBRB believe that by extending the viewability rule it will signal the FCC commitment to small and independent broadcasters. We plan to work hard to make sure that this extension is a reality"

 

As we understand it, the Commission is considering letting the rule that now makes sure must-carry stations be viewable by all cable viewers expire. We fear that this could have a devastating impact on our viewers, because many of them rely on analog cable service. Currently, roughly 22 percent of cable subscribers rely on analog service and many more use analog service on second and third TVs.

 

The end of the viewability rule would allow cable providers to basically cut off must-carry stations from those viewers. In order to access our content, these consumers would be forced to go through the hassle and expense of purchasing and installing a new converter box.   Ending the viewability rule would transfer the burden of complying with these requirements from cable providers to consumers.

 

The end of the rule also will reduce programming diversity. Our broadcasters offer unique faith-based programming targeting often underserved audiences. The stations that carry our programs are generally independent and cannot afford the lost viewership that is likely to result from allowing the current viewability rule to expire.

 

Today broadcast television is also making great strides in offering new opportunities for African-American voices, and now is the wrong time to take a step backward. NBRB members are not asking for a special rule or favor. We believe that cable providers should not have the ability to discriminate against small local broadcast stations that serve audiences who desire faith-based programming.

 

 

About NBRB

 

The National Black Religious Broadcasters (NBRB) is a national coalition of over 10,000 black religious broadcasters throughout the country who utilize broadcast and cable television, the internet and radio to host their ministries and spread the gospel according to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  

 

16Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  

 

19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

 

NBRB truly believes in the Great Commission, the ethics and teachings of Jesus and His commandment over our lives. This verse of scripture is the central cause of our missionary zeal to spread the Good News through broadcast and cable television, radio and internet. We intend to save the world with this powerful gospel.

The National Black Church Initiative Calls on The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to Extend the Viewability Rule

 

If not extended this will harm the church-based broadcasters and limit access

Much of this programming is viewed on must-carry television stations.

 

We would like to ensure that our content reaches everyone who would like to see it - including those consumers that cannot afford, or are not aware that they need, a new cable box.

 

The Rev. Anthony Evans, President of NBCI says, "we strongly believe that it is the job of the FCC to assure that minority church-based broadcasters should receive the same consideration as large cable operators. We strongly urge the Federal Communications Commission to extend the rule because many of our 15.7 million members will be directly and adversely affected by the FCC not extending the viewability rule. We plan to fight for our right to have comprehensive access to all cable systems whether it is analog, digital or hybrid systems. We plan to let our congressional representative know our position. We will use the full force of the Black Church to be heard on this issue."

 

As we understand it, the Commission is considering letting the rule that now makes sure must-carry stations be viewable by all cable viewers expire. We fear that this could have a devastating impact on our viewers, because many of them rely on analog cable service. Currently, roughly 22 percent of cable subscribers rely on analog service and many more use analog service on second and third TVs.

In order to access our content, these consumers would be forced to go through the hassle and expense of purchasing and installing a new converter box.   Ending the viewability rule would transfer the burden of complying with these requirements from cable providers to consumers.

 

Rev. Mark McCleary, Chair of NBCI Minister Alliance is leading an all out effort to notify NBCI members about this possible rule change. "We have notified over11,000 of our churches who plan to make phone calls and write the FCC on this issue. We want to send a clear message to the FCC. Please do not cast us aside in order to cater to big cable businesses over the objection of minority church-based broadcasters. Our tax dollars built and continues to sustain the public airwaves and we deserve just as much access as any other broadcasters regardless of its size and we will fight to be heard."

 

The end of the rule also will reduce programming diversity. Our broadcasters offer unique faith-based programming targeting often underserved audiences. The stations that carry our programs are generally independent and cannot afford the lost viewership that is likely to result from allowing the current viewability rule to expire.

 

Today broadcast television is also making great strides in offering new opportunities for African-American voices, and now is the wrong time to take a step backward. NBCI members are not asking for a special rule or favor. We believe that cable providers should not have the ability to discriminate against small local broadcast stations that serve audiences who desire faith-based programming.

 

To the extent that a cable provider continues to offer some analog programming to its subscribers, we believe they should continue to provide must-carry signals in analog as well.

While our content may not compete with sports or entertainment programming, to the viewers who rely on us, it is no less important. We ask that the Commission carefully consider our viewers as it deliberates on whether to extend this rule.
