Worldnetdaily reports on the surreal nature of Southern Baptist leader, Richard Land, lining up to support the expansion of mosques, including the highly controversial one planned at Ground Zero:

“The Anti-Defamation League, responding to the public rejection of the idea of an Islamic mosque near Ground Zero in New York, has assembled an “Interfaith Coalition on Mosques” to offer support for the right to build religious facilities.

The group includes clergy from a multitude of faith traditions, including Executive Director Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.

Land said the purpose for the coalition is clear.

“To help support the First Amendment for all Americans – we have the right to the free exercise of our faith without the interference of the government. For over a hundred years, the Supreme Court has ruled that’s not just the federal government, it’s all government,” Land stated.”
