The fallout continues for Pat Robertson because of his dumb statements he has made recently, as pointed out in a Washington Post article. Despite being a longtime member of the Board of Directors for the National Association of Broadcasters he was not reelected recently. Additionally, only 36 people were running for 33 seats! It seems that his colleagues have grown tired of his antics.

As NRB President Frank Wright explained, "I would say that there was broad dismay with some of Pat's comments and a feeling they were not helpful to Christian broadcasters in general, but by no means was there any broad effort in our association to dissociate ourselves with him."

This goes to show why it is important to be careful what we say, because our words come with consequences that could close the door on ministry opportunities.

Thanks to the GetReligion blog for pointing out this story.
