First, one Barton shared a video of another Barton saying something utterly ridiculous:
Arni Zachariassen shares a link to a video of Michael Nowak speaking about evolution and Christianity.
And Mason shares how his view on evolution has changed over a decade.
More censorship by religious zealots for Darwinian dogma:
Freedom of speech is highly regarded by some so long as it is enjoyed by the “right” people.
I do not know how to take Barton and Wallbuilders. I’ve seen him on Beck’s show (only watch when I want to get blood pressure up, get a laugh, or self-punish myself). Their re-writting of history is done in a way that I could describe as clandestined. As I watch, I should know better, but he comes across as legitimate. I heard a member of Wallbuilders talk one time,..with a big push to sell their books to people in the audience. I heard the guy (some X-El Cajon Ca elected city official) start talking about how all Blacks should actually be Republicans, since my gosh….they must have forgotten that Lincoln was a Republican. The guy was an idiot. The parties have changed a lot in the years. When I was a kid – in the 50’s-60’s. all Southern Democrates were totally racist. Things change. BTY – I am an independent, but recognize BS when I see it. I would like to know the funding sources for Wallbuilders. I could never find info about it.
