On June 19, 2003 The Anti-Defamation League reported that "The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today condemned as 'outrageous and offensive' the remarks of a Southern Baptist leader who, in calling for renewed attempts to proselytize Jews, compared Judaism to a potentially 'deadly tumor...' In a speech June 16 to the Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship, a gathering of Messianic Jews, Al Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY, pointed to Scripture as mandating Jewish conversion, saying that the act of warning Jews about the danger of their beliefs was 'the ultimate act of Christian love.'"
