Christian Nation Nonsense in Oklahoma Legislature

Christian Nation Nonsense in Oklahoma Legislature March 13, 2012

Pastor Bill Ledbetter of Fairview Baptist Church in Oklahoma served as the weekly chaplain for the Oklahoma legislature recently and gave an impassioned sermon full of lies and falsehoods to that state’s House of Representatives. For example, he completely distorts the now-infamous Lutz study of references made by the Founding Fathers during revolutionary times.

He passes on the fake quote from Patrick Henry about the nation being founded on Christianity. Amusingly, he does this while extolling the godly virtues of the Constitution, which Henry railed against and opposed. Then he spreads some creationist manure around and claims that Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment on New Orleans for sin. It’s like a perfect distillation of Christian right stupid and crazy in one 15 minute sermon.
