It’s always good when Christian totalitarians just come right out and tell us what they really want. We’ve always known that David Barton was a theocrat, but in a recent interview he came right out and said it, arguing that the law should make sure that every single aspect of life is line with (his own bizarre interpretation of) the Bible.
On marriage, Barton called for the elimination of no-fault divorce, and afterr repeating his claim that the Sixth Amendment’s guarantee of our right to confront our accusers came directly out of the Bible, Barton said that conservative Christians need to make sure that everything from economics to contracts to employer-employee relations operates according to strictly biblical principles.
Once again citing the importance of Christians wielding total control over the Seven Mountains of culture, Barton demanded that society uphold “a biblical view on computer programing” and fondly recalled how, until the 1960s, Hollywood could not release any film “unless the church approved it.”
“Until we get back into saying, you know, I’ve got to have a biblical view on computer programming, I’ve got to have a biblical view as a business, as a Chamber of Commerce, whatever it is,” Barton said, “if we don’t get that back to where everyone has a common worldview and, based on our documents, that is there is a God, he gives you a certain set of rights, government protects those rights, he gives a fixed moral law that I’m not allowed to alter and then, below that, I can make decisions, until we get back to the common understanding of the nation, we won’t have a stable nation.”
I can’t wait until he tells us which verses from the iron or bronze age tells us “verbatim” what we should think and do about computer programming like he has for the Constitution, can you?
