Land signs off radio show comment (0)

June 14, 2012


Southern Baptists’ top moral-concerns spokesman told listeners June 2 was his final appearance on the weekly call-in show that sparked recent controversy.

The head of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) signed off without fanfare for the last time on the Richard Land Live! weekly radio show that day.

Richard Land, president of ERLC since 1988, didn’t go into detail about the controversy over recent comments about Trayvon Martin and a plagiarism investigation that brought rebuke and a decision to cancel the program by the executive committee of his trustee board.

“Due to a variety of circumstances this will be my last appearance on Richard Land Live!,” Land said in the closing moments of a previously recorded broadcast without the usual listener calls. “I have thoroughly enjoyed my more than decade-long ... conversation with you. I still believe America  ... must have a spiritual revival followed by a spiritual awakening culminating in a spiritual reformation.”
