Backstory: “Richard Land, Southern Baptist Hypocrite,” April 8, 2012 — in which the president of the Southern Baptist Convention “Ethics” & Religious Liberty Commission demonstrates how exploiting an issue of national importance to boost conservative voter turnout is good, but exploiting an issue of national importance to boost progressive voter turnout is bad.
Today, Mr. Land demonstrates how stealing somebody else’s words is good… unless you get caught doing it.
The Tennessean sums it up:
…[When Land] recently used his radio show to accuse African-American leaders of exploiting the Trayvon Martin shooting for political gain, Land wasn’t using his own words.
Instead, most were lifted without attribution from a Washington Times article by conservative columnist Jeff Kuhner.
Land apologized Monday after facing allegations of plagiarism from a Baptist blogger.
“I was sloppy,” said Land. “I apologize. And we’re going to move on.”
Hmmmm… nope, let’s not just “move on.” Instead, let’s take a look at the original posts, and congratulate the blogger (“the big daddy weave”) who wrote them, revealing Land’s violation of the Eighth Commandment:
