Land Leaving Post

The top ethics official for the Southern Baptist Convention is stepping down. Richard Land says he'll retire next year. By that time, he'll have been president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission for 25 years. Land quite his radio show after he make controversial comments about the Trayvon Martin shooting. He said that black leaders were exploiting case for political gain. Ironically, Land was one of the chief architects of a 1995 resolution by Southern Baptists apologizing for their role in supporting slavery and racism.
