Religion Prof: The Blog of James F. McGrath
The Blog of Dr. James F. McGrath, Clarence L. Goodwin Chair in New Testament Language and Literature at Butler University, Indianapolis
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.
