ERLC and Richard Land

by Jessica Bryan

ERLC’s Richard Land again discussed (clarified and apologized for) his comments linking health care reform and Nazi principles in response to much criticism.  One critic, Indiana State University Professor Richard Pierard, said:

To evoke images of Hitler or the Holocaust to thwart health-care reform is a brutal insult both to the victims and survivors of that Holocaust. We must proclaim as widely as possible that the term ‘Nazism’ and images of the swastika have nothing to do with the issues at hand. Any such comparisons are false and are intended only to frighten and confuse people.

The group also posted on hate crimes legislation and the new federal policy to not prosecute for using or supplying medical marijuana.
