Richard Land on Obama/Warren

December 22, 2008

Time Magazine asked Richard Land for his opinion of Obama/Warren; his capsule response is in this Time article.

When I called Richard Land, head of the denomination’s influential Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission and its principal Washington strategist, he agreed with Warren. “Rick is having a summit on AIDS, and Barack Obama has said some compelling things about the issue. I work all the time in coalition with people to the right and left of me, when we’re in agreement on a specific issue. One of the markers of Evangelicals is the ability to walk and chew gum at the same time.”

Land’s extended comments can be found in the last segment of this installment of Richard Land Live. Land essentially says “one does not say ‘No’ to the President when he asks you to give an invocation.”
