by | Aug 29, 2021

Daniel Darling, spokesman for D.C.-based NRB (National Religious Broadcasters), spoke out about his decision to get the COVID-19 vaccine in an op-ed in USA Today and a segment on MSNBC.  His remarks cost him his job, reports Christianity Today (CT).

Darling was fired from NRB when he refused to sign a statement saying his pro-vaccine messaging amounted to insubordination, a source told CT on his behalf.

In a statement, Darling said he was “sad and disappointed that [his] time at NRB has come to a close.”

According to CT, “Darling joined NRB as its senior vice president of communications in April 2020, after a six-year stint as the vice president for communications at the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC).

“NRB, which calls itself the largest association of Christian communicators, has more than 1,100 members working in Christian radio, TV, and other media.”

According to his website, for six years, Darling served as Vice President for Communications for the ERLC, an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention, America’s largest Protestant denomination. Dan is a bestselling author of several books, including The Original Jesus, The Dignity RevolutionThe Characters of ChristmasThe Characters of Easter and A Way With Words. He is the general editor, along with Trillia Newbell, of a small group study on racial reconciliation, The Church and the Racial Divide and is a contributor to The Worldview Study Bible.

“Dan is an award–winning writer whose work has appeared in numerous publications. He is a regular contributor to USA Today and his work is often featured in Homelife, Christianity Today, and The Gospel Coalition. Dan’s op-eds have appeared in The Washington Post, CNN, Washington Times, Time, Huffington Post, National Review, First Things, and other leading outlets,” states Darling’s website.
