David Barton Doesn’t Understand That The Declaration Of Independence And The Constitution Are Two Very Different Documents

Religious Right pseudo-historian David Barton is back with another mind-bogglingly silly argument that the United States is really an officially Christian nation – even though our Constitution doesn’t say that.

Don’t Spend Spring Break With 'Christian Nation' Propagandist David Barton

Religious Right “Christian nation” advocate and pseudo-historian David Barton has a special offer for teachers: From March 15-17, he’ll be offering a conference at his home base in Aledo, Texas, “designed to equip teachers from both public and private schools with the principles and techniques that were used in early American education and thereafter for decades.”

These Fundamentalists Are Not Going To Tolerate Legal Abortion And Marriage Equality. So There.

I opened up my Washington Post yesterday morning – yes, I still read a paper edition – only to see a full-page ad on page A7 headlined, “DECLARATION OF DEPENDENCE UPON GOD AND HIS HOLY BIBLE.”

“Oh, this ought to be good,” I thought.

Indeed, the ad didn’t disappoint. It stated that people have certain rights given to them by the Creator and among them “is the right to exercise our Christian beliefs as put forth in God’s Holy Bible.”

Desperate Plea: Texas Theocrat Says Voting For Trump Is OK Because God Has ‘A Different Standard’

David Barton, the Religious Right’s favorite phony historian, is trying to sell his base on voting for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. But where most of Barton’s allies have resorted to pumping up Trump by dumping on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Barton acknowledges Trump’s flaws – but says they don’t matter because Trump has been chosen by God to lead the United States.

Barton Bunk: Religious Right ‘Historian’ Claims People Who Criticize Him ‘Hate America’

David Barton is still David Barton, which means the Religious Right’s favorite fake historian is once again distorting facts to suit his own agenda.

Last week, Barton appeared on a right-wing radio program called “The Patriot and The Preacher,” hosted by Mark Anthony – a former tech sector worker with a self-described “passion” for history – and the Rev. Ben Kinchlow – a former co-host on Pat Robertson’s “The 700 Club.”

Ally Of ‘Christian Nation’ Advocate Barton Loses Election To Texas High Court

A crony of Religious Right pseudo-historian David Barton will not be joining the Texas Supreme Court.

Rick Green, a former Texas state representative and “Christian nation” advocate, narrowly lost his bid for the bench in March to state Supreme Court incumbent Paul Green (no relation). Green has sought the seat before.

That Green was very nearly elected to Texas’ highest court is somewhat shocking. The Dallas Morning News noted that he has been described as a “serial abuser of ethics standards.”  

Blustering Barton: Religious Right Pseudo-Historian Claims Tithing Will Make Your Car And Clothes Last Longer

The Religious Right’s favorite wannabe historian is at it again – this time making some rather unusual claims about how tithing to a church will make your car run longer and your clothes more durable.

Barton, the Texas trickster who is famous for tall tales as tremendous as a ten-gallon hat, recently talked to Glenn Beck as part of his “Foundations of Freedom” series. During that chat, Barton opined that giving away 10 percent of your income will lead to some very specific (and very odd) blessings from God.
