Kirk Cameron vs. Paul Finkelman on Jefferson and Slavery

Although Kirk Cameron cites none of his own research, he refers approvingly to an article by Stephen McDowell (Providence Institute) which is hosted on the Wallbuilders website about the Founders and slavery. McDowell refers to Thomas Jefferson but does not give the whole picture. Historian Paul Finkelman in the NY Times accentuates the negative but reports Jefferson's racist views and his active involvement in owning slaves much more accurately.As we document in Getting Jefferson Right, J … [Read more...]

Here he … [Read more...]

Barton, as is typical, takes an interesting story and misleads his audience. You can read Chris Rodda's more accurate rendering of the situation here. I … [Read more...]

Note to Kirk Cameron: If you don’t want a fight, then don’t start one

I grew up in the Southern Ohio town of Portsmouth, Ohio (BTW, the same place BTB's Jim Burroway called home). In my little town in the 1960s and 70s, group identifications were clear and animosity toward minority groups was in style.

I lived near the river as opposed to the section of town farther from the river and on a higher elevation. I was a river rat, and the others in the more … [Read more...]

This may make it worth the price of admission.Paul Cameron - yes, that Paul Cameron - will be in Cohen's new film, "Bruno", out Friday. From the NY Post, via Fox News:The Post talked to six people involved with the film — including four victims duped into appearing — to get their stories and figure out how, even after the massive success of "Borat," there are still people unfamiliar with Cohen's shtick. One didn't even know he was in the film until The Post phoned.Victim: Dr. Paul Cam … [Read more...]
