Southern Baptists Love Bush

WASHINGTON (BP)–President George W. Bush received a Southern Baptist award for his advocacy of religious freedom in a Jan. 29 presentation at the White House.

Richard Land, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, presented the entity’s 2006 John Leland Religious Liberty Award to Bush in the Oval Office. The ERLC gave the award to the president for “courageously defending the right of all people to exercise freely their religious faith,” according to the framed citation.

“I can’t think of another president in my lifetime who has done more to promote religious liberty specifically as a fundamental human right around the world than” Bush, Land told Baptist Press.
