Richard Land And Jerry Boykin Claim Obama Is God's Judgment On America

On yesterday’s “Washington Watch,” Religious Right leaders Jerry Boykin and Richard Land agreed that President Obama is — in Land’s words — “a judgment of God on the United States.”

Land, a former Southern Baptist Convention official, blamed Obama for the current conflict in Iraq, saying that he lost the Iraq fight just as Americans abandoned the South Vietnamese.

Later in the program, Land reassured a listener who asked if impeaching the president “would start a race war.” Land responded that it wouldn’t because African Americans would realize as a result of the impeachment process that Obama “was doing things that were illegal” and so “ it would not break out into any sustained episodes of violence.”
