The Rev. Frederick E. Taylor, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Indianapolis, and a former president of the Northern Baptist Convention, criticized the Jews yesterday for “praying only for the interest of their race”. He spoke at the Baptist Bible Missionary conference at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church. He said:
“God wanted the Jewish race to enrich the world, but instead it shut itself in. The Zionist movement will succeed only if it has for its purpose the fulfillment of the original mission of the Jewish people, and I have a suspicion that they are going to fail. They have failed in the past to fulfill their mission. The failure has been tremendous.
