Land: Fighting Abortion & Gay Marriage is Like MLK Fighting for Racial Justice
Recently, Christian television host John Ankerberg sat down with Janet Parshall, Frank Wright, and Richard Land to "examine the moral issues surrounding the upcoming election," during which Wright, President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Religious Broadcasters, warned that the choice of the next president would determine whether the Bible can be freely preached in America because "there is legislation pending on Capitol Hill today, even as we sit here in your studio, that could so constrain your free speech rights and the rights ultimately of all Americans that the Bible will be something that is referred to only in part because there will be parts of it that are untouchable" out of fear of government persecution:
Land then asserted that Christians would continue to be involved in politics so long as abortion remained legal and efforts to expand marriage equality existed, saying that criticizing the Religious Right for fighting this issues is "like attacking Dr. [Martin Luther] King for making a priority out of racial reconciliation and racial justice":
