GA House Candidate Barry Loudermilk Says No Greater Expert On The U.S. Constitution Than David Barton

Georgia State Senator Barry Loudermilk is running for Congress from Georgia’s 11th congressional district. Today on Twitter he announced that David Barton has endorsed his candidacy.

On Loudermilk’s website, he has this to say about Barton:

There is no greater expert on the U.S. Constitution and the underpinnings of American government, than David Barton

Wow, no greater expert?

In addition to academia in general, scores of Christian professors would disagree with that assessment. As regular readers know, the Family Research Council removed from view a video of Barton on the “underpinnings of American government” due to historical errors.

Loudermilk has a record of supporting the Christian nation thesis and has spoken at least one Christian reconstructionist event in the past and has cited Barton previously.

    . From the Christian Reconstruction link:

    “From the spark of the Great Awakening with George Whitfield…” He is an important figure in the Great Awakening…but Georgia especially has reason to remember him…pushing for, and succeeding at, reinstituting slavery there after it had been abolished. (Of course, reinstituting slavery apparently was also a dream of Rousas John Rushdoony, the founder of the Christian Reconstruction movement. I think he really had an unseemly fantasy about owning slaves, and piercing the ears of his “permanent” slaves to show that they were in a state of permanent submissiveness to him…like women.)

    I take it Loudermilk hasn’t bothered to read the Constitution.
