This time it’s by Richard Land, President of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.  RightWingWatch picked up on Land’s unfortunate invoking of Nazis to rail against Obama’s desire for health care reform.

President Barack Obama and Democratic leaders of Congress are advocating healthcare reform that will result in rationing of care, making them guilty of the same ideology that fueled the Nazi Holocaust, Richard Land told the Christian Coalition of Florida at a Sept. 26 banquet in Orlando.

“I want to put it to you bluntly. What they are attempting to do in healthcare, particularly in treating the elderly, is not something like what the Nazis did. It is precisely what the Nazis did,” said Land, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.


Land was the keynote speaker for the 20th anniversary “God and Country Banquet” of the Christian Coalition of Florida.


“Let’s remember,” Land added, “the first 10,000 victims of the Holocaust were not Jews, they were mentally handicapped German children who were gassed and burned in ovens because they were considered to have … lives unworthy of life,” citing the Nazi ideology used to rationalize the Holocaust.
