In 2012, the National Religious Broadcasters Network aired the Institute on the Constitution’s 12 part course on the Constitution. The NRB took some heat over that choice, including the threat of a boycott from a group of pastors in the Cincinnati Ohio area. The same group of pastors threatened a boycott of publisher Thomas Nelson over David Barton’s The Jefferson Lies.
Near the end of the series, the NRB sent a mixed message about the future of the IOTC on the network. I honestly thought the NRB might not rebroadcast the series based on the controversy and the serious errors in the series. However, the twelve-part series is being broadcast currently on Thursday nights at 9am, Session 10 is slated to run this Thursday.
The Cincinnati pastors were unaware that the series was being rebroadcast and, although disappointed, at this late date do not plan any action. Given the errors and theocratic aims of the IOTC, I too am disappointed that NRB’s viewers will be misled. I contacted the NRB representatives a week ago with no reply.
