David Barton founded and runs WallBuilders, a Texas outfit that publishes books, DVDs and other materials arguing that church-state separation is a myth and that America was founded to be a “Christian nation.”

Barton’s book The Myth of Separation was criticized for its many errors and quotes attributed to Founding Fathers that could not be confirmed. He subsequently rewrote the tome and issued it under a new title, Original Intent. A former vice chair of the Texas Republican Party, Barton was tapped to review Texas’ social studies standards in 2009 even though he is not a historian – he holds a bachelor’s degree in “Christian Education” from Oral Roberts University – and has no legitimate credentials in this area.
