Rafael Cruz Regurgitates “Historian” David Barton
Right wing watch recently found something that might be of interest to you. Rafael Cruz, the father of Ted Cruz, has apparently been listening to the American far right’s favorite “historian.” No surprise, really, unfortunately.
Yes David Barton is such a great “historian.” Maybe the real reason that it’s not taught in any of our public schools, is because it’s baseless and only the uneducated believe it. Rafael, if you really want to educate yourself, do yourself a favor, start reading the work of people like Chris Rodda instead, who has successfully debunked Barton on multiple occasions. Like Barton, you are either incredibly ignorant or a liar. Secularism wasn’t something that was just made up by “evil liberals” to suppress Christians. Groups like Americans United For the Separation of Church And Sate, defend our religious liberty, not persecute Christians or suppress Christianity. Also Rafael, like it or not, as Americans, secularism is a part of our county’s history. Our nation was not founded on Christianity or any other religion for that matter, and that’s a good thing.
