Land Won't 'Bow to the False God of Political Correctness' Regarding Trayvon Martin Shooting
Earlier this month, Richard Land dedicated his weekly radio program to discussing the Trayvon Martin shooting where he accused "race hustlers" of using the situation to "gin up the black vote" for President Obama.
His remarks, not surprisingly, have been generating some controversy ... but Land is not backing down and has issued a statement to the Baptist Press saying he will "not bow to the false god of political correctness" because "true racial reconciliation means you can criticize black leaders when you believe they have been wrong without being labeled as a racist":
Southern Baptist ethicist Richard Land, who played a key role in the Southern Baptist Convention's 1995 repentance of the "racism of which we have been guilty," has caught media attention over what he views as the infusion of politics into the Trayvon Martin killing.
In comments provided to Baptist Press April 10, Land stood by his radio remarks.
"Some have said that I, by criticizing this rush to judgment, have set back the cause of racial reconciliation. Real racial reconciliation, to which I have been committed for my entire ministry, involves treating people as equals," Land wrote.
"Among other things, it means speaking the truth in love and not being called a racist when you are the bearer of uncomfortable truths. True racial reconciliation means you can criticize black leaders when you believe they have been wrong without being labeled as a racist. True racial reconciliation means that you do not bow to the false god of political correctness," Land wrote.
