Hypocritical Quote of the Day….

 The prize goes to Richard Land, Pastor and president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission:

The faith community needs to be a check against political vitriol in the 2012 election, which two religious leaders say has the potential to be the “ugliest campaign” in decades. Jim Wallis, the progressive CEO of Sojourners, and Richard Land, the conservative head of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, are two religious scholars with opposing political views. But at their joint event at the National Press Club in Washington Wednesday, they agreed on some issues as they discussed and debated faith and the 2012 election.

According to Wallis, while he disagrees with Land on most political issues, they were able to have a civil debate – something Wallis hopes politicians can learn from. …

Land agreed, saying that the faith community in America must lead by example,

“Instead of attacking the person  we deal with issues and we call people when they start straying from that,” Land explained. “We are going to have to be very watchful. I think the temptation for this one to get down and dirty is going to be overwhelming.” 

Ha! This is the same Richard Land who declared that Obama’s healthcare reform effort is exactly the same as what the Nazis did and proclaimed that Ezekiel Emanuel (the President’s chief healthcare advisor) was just like Josef Mengele: 

“I want to put it to you bluntly. What they are attempting to do in healthcare, particularly in treating the elderly, is not something like what the Nazis did. It is precisely what the Nazis did,”

“We are faced with what I call ‘biological bigotry’ and it is every bit as pernicious, every bit as evil, every bit as destructive as the racial and ethnic bigotry that has plagued us in the past,… The Nazis said people should be euthanized when they had lives unworthy of life. … Well, at the very least Dr. Emanuel, [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi, [Sen.] Max Baucus and President Obama are saying that some people have lives less worthy of life”. (2009 –  Christian Coalition, Orlando Florida) 

Thats some example there Mr. Land.

  1. Politics itself is a colossal compromise if you are a believer. And a denominational heirarchy like the SBC is an obscene waste of money, as well as an unbiblical ecclesiastical structure.

    You make an incredible point. I could never vote for a pro-choice candidate (I don’t vote anyway), however the visceral hatred many evangelicals have for President Obama reveals the shallowness of their spiritual life and the utter disdain they have for the gospel.

    • the visceral hatred many evangelicals have for President Obama reveals the shallowness of their spiritual life and the utter disdain they have for the gospel.

      Rick, you’re right. Over the past 3 years i have often pondered upon that possibility that God used the election of Obama as President to reveal what many Christians had hidden away in their hearts.

      It’s been ugly to watch…

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
