Comments by Richard Land about the Trayvon Martin killing “have angered many and opened wounds from the past,” the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s executive committee said in a statement released April 18. The ERLC executive committee also registered concern that Land had used sources from other media without proper attribution for some of his comments in his weekly radio call-in show. An ad hoc committee has been formed “to investigate the allegations of plagiarism and recommend appropriate action,” the ERLC executive committee reported in its statement.
