digitalcoupleimage

Yesterday, Salon's Tracy Clark-Flory examined mixed orientation marriages as a possible new political statement against same-sex marriage. The article was triggered by the amicus brief filed by a Utah attorney on behalf of some people in mixed orientation marriages. She also interviewed me for the article and I am quoted extensively.While my survey results are still unpublished (I keep getting distracted), the study has helped inform my views on the subject. Some essentially same-sex … [Read more...]

Last weekend, David Barton continued his war on Christian colleges when he told an audience at Faith Baptist Church in Knightdale, NC that 50% of students at Christian universities deny their faith while in college.  Watch:At 1:03 into the clip above, Barton said: I mentioned before that between 60 and 80% of our kids deny their faith at university, you can at least send your kids to a Christian university, cause only 50% of them deny their faith at a Christian university.

Hillsong Spokesman Responds to Petition Asking for Mark Driscoll’s Removal from London Conference

With nearly 700 signers, Natalie Collins' petition asking Hillsong to remove Mark Driscoll from the schedule of Hillsong's London conference has taken off.

The whole point of keeping Mark (and Grace) Driscoll on the conference program is so Brian Houston can interview them about events of the past … [Read more...]

Robert Morris Scrubs Reference to His Doctorate of Literature

RobertMorriswdoctorate

Earlier this month, I pointed out that Robert Morris referred to his honorary degree from his own university (The King's University) as a "doctorate of literature." This sounds like a real earned doctorate but in his case it is not. Morris has not completed any college degree and has acknowledged using ghostwriters to write his books.Since that post, Gateway Church's website has been scrubbed of references to the "doctorate of literature." For instance, here is the previous church bio, … [Read more...]

Lincoln Memorial University Features David Barton

I can't understand why any institution would want to do this to their students.Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, TN is going feature David Barton in their "Upholding the Constitution" series on April 24. Perhaps LMU is one of the Barton 12 (one of a dozen schools that Barton thinks are correct on the Constitution).In his speech, perhaps he can find those Bible verses he says are quoted verbatim in the Constitution. Probably the talk should be called "Rewriting the C … [Read more...]

How David Barton Speaks to 400 Groups per Year

Barton presentations

David Barton frequently claims that he speaks to over 400 groups per year. Once he said he spoke to over 600 different groups per year. Given the number of days in a year and his other activities, this seems like a fantastic claim. After reading a document from his defamation lawsuit, I now think I know how he gets to this number.In 2012, Barton sued two candidates for the Texas Board of Education for defamation, Judy Jennings, and Rebecca Bell-Metereau. The case was settled out of court in … [Read more...]
