Thanos,

“Historian” David Barton shows us once again, he doesn’t care about the facts. Should any of us be surprised?

After reading your page Christian America Is an Invention: Big Business, Right-Wing Politics and the Religious Lie That Still Divides Us yesterday, I went over to Amazon to look at the book written by the article’s author. I often read the negative reviews first as knowing who hates a book often tells me more about it than the glowing reviews.

Anyway, it’s relatively new so there were only six reviews, but one of them was a one-star review which I almost fell out of my chair LOL at:

Mr. Kruse is not much of a historian if he can’t even read the founder’s own writings. Instead of focusing on the twentieth century to prove whether or not America is a Christian nation, why not go to it’s origins? Read David Barton… he is a real historian.

I’ve gotta say it gave me hope for our country to see that he got royally pounded in the comments for making that claim.

We should be especially worried given the wide spread acceptance of creationism and the belief that Global Warming is nothing more than an anti capitalist conspiracy designed to bring about socialism.

Facts. They get in the way of good lies. Not enough to lie and distort history, he has to inflate his own ego with absurd claims. Pathetic. He’s like a sensor for stupid. You see him quoted or favored in any capacity, and that’s all folks. Elvis has left the building. Goodnight.

Now that’s hilarious, thanks!

The Lying for Jesus crusade expands into self-aggrandizement. Color me surprised.

If you’ve never read Chris Rodda’s work debunking Barton and other revisionists, you should. liarsforjesus.com
