Barton and His ‘Direct Quotes’

Barton and His ‘Direct Quotes’ December 16, 2012

David Barton has been caught yet again lying to his ignorant followers, telling them that many provisions found in the Constitution are “direct quotes” from the Bible. He did it at the ProFamily Legislators Conference, put on by his Wallbuilders organization.

I could take you through most clauses of the Constitution, but it’s interesting when you look at the Constitution and the clauses, if you know the Bible – and a lot of people don’t; they look at the Constitution and say “oh, that’s cool language.” If you know the Bible, you go “that’s a direct quote out of a Bible verse.”

That’s why so many Bible verses are directly cited in the Constitution. When people tell me the Constitution is a secular document, that tells me they’re biblically illiterate because if you know the Bible, you’ll instantly recognize these verses in Constitutional clauses.

Same old lie. Same ignorant audience.
