Here’s what I want to know. When is somebody from the Left going to stand up and say, like the Right did with Jeremiah Wright, “Hey Mr. Barbour/ Huckabee/ Gingrich — you sat there and listened to this crazed demagogue spouting demonstrable lunacy! Either you agree with every word he said, or you should step up right now and condemn him!”

Not that I’m for that sort of belief-by-association. But in this case, where the drivel is being spouted in an explicitly political context, there’s a wee tad more of a case for asking the audience to state their position on what they have implicitly endorsed. Like, at some debate, will they all be asked if the minimum wage is blasphemous? Right after the questions about climate change, evolution, and birth certificates….

These people see Jesus in a piece of toast and think God is personally involved in the outcome of every detail of their lives while just as easily orchestrating the misery of others. Let that sink in, and it isn’t such a stretch they see sermons in the Declaration of Independence.

It’s mental illness.

Great job Rick Perry giving this moron influence over our children’s education.

Well said. I’m stealing this comment.

“They believed the Bible applied to every single element of life.”

This is really retrograde. Intellectual conservatives like Thomas Albert Howard have been saying for a good while that American institutions were a middle ground between enlightenment secularists and traditionalists. Read this article to see that argument: [Link: www.firstthings.com…]

I’ve also heard conservatives like Matthew Scully of the Heritage Foundation say that the eighteenth century was a time when religious identity by politicians was not as public as it is now. The logical consequence of what David Barton says is that religion would be dictated. If that had ever been the case, there would have been a state church and America would not have the wide collection of faiths that it has now.
