Barton Repeats Perhaps His Biggest Lie of All

David Barton lies. A lot. He does it professionally and he does it audaciously. But I would argue that his single biggest lie, which he repeats constantly, is that you'll find "almost verbatim wording in many clauses of the Constitution to passages in the Bible."

Anne Graham Lotz is Confused About History

Billy Graham's daughter Anne Graham Lotz is confused about a lot of things, but let's start with American history.

Barton Lies About Lies About Lies

David Barton, perhaps the only person in America that can give Donald Trump and Kellyanne Conartist a run for their money as liars, is now lying about John Fea, a real evangelical Christian historian who has criticized him strongly.

Meet the American Center for Law and Justice

I have been dealing with the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), Pat Robertson's response to the ACLU, for something like 25 years. The group, led by Jay Sekulow, is astonishingly hypocritical in its support of religious freedom, financially corrupt and dangerously theocratic. … [Read more...]
