During his recent discussion with Mike Jacobs, David Barton made a bizarre assertion that fear that the Religious Right seeks to implement a theocracy in America is "stupidity" because "as long as you have elections, you'll never have a theocracy." Barton asserted that "this far left stuff that says if Christians get involved, they're trying to make a theocracy" is nonsense and is just something that "wackos on the left and secularists and progressives try to use to keep us intimidated, to make us ashamed of our faith and our values."...

After Refusing To Run For Office, David Barton Lectures Everyone Else On The Importance Of Running For Office
SUBMITTED BY: Kyle Mantyla, Tuesday 03/04/2014, 11:42am
Recently, David Barton sat down for a discussion hosted by Mike Jacobs, co-founder of Generals International along with his wife, "respected prophet" Cindy Jacobs, as well as Mark Herr and Mishelle Perkins of the Center for Self Governance. During the course of the program, Barton went on at great length about the need for conservative Christians to run for political office because "everything we call the 'culture war' comes from policies the government has passed because we've lost control of our country." Barton lectured all those who complain about the... MORE >

On today's "WallBuilders Live" radio program, David Barton responded to a question from a listener asking if he thought that President Obama might declare a state of emergency so that he could cancel the 2016 elections and serve a third term in office. Barton said that he didn't think that such a scenario was very likely, but used the question to assert that nobody voiced this sort of concern about Presidents Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush. The fact that people are asking such questions now, Barton said, is a sign that Obama is "lawless." "It's... MORE >

David Barton recently spoke at Victory Family Church in Decatur, Texas where he delivered his standard presentation about how every single aspect of American life and society ought to be governed according to the Bible, and that includes putting an end to things like "gender bender" days at elementary schools because "the Bible says you absolutely cannot do that." "The Bible explicitly condemns cross-dressing," Barton said. "That's not just a cute little thing that happened at school, that's a biblically-addressed issue": MORE >
David Barton Praises Phil Robertson For Making Homosexuality Seem 'Very Repugnant, Which Is What It Should Be'

Last year, David Barton advocated fighting back against the advances that gay rights activists are making by graphically highlighting how "reprehensible and disgusting" homosexuality really is. This was a theme he returned to on today's "WallBuilders Live" broadcast as his son, Tim, was discussing the recent controversy over anti-gay comments made by Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty." Barton praised Robertson for being "quite graphic" in his statement because, in doing so, he made homosexuality seem "very repugnant, which is what it should be,... MORE >
Cruz: Obama Leading 'The Most Hostile To Traditional Marriage Administration This Country Has Ever Seen'

As Brian noted, Sen. Ted Cruz has been making the rounds of Religious Right radio programs lately, promoting his State Marriage Defense Act which would prohibit the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages in states where such marriages are illegal. Yesterday, he appeared on "WallBuilders Live" to explain that such a law is necessary because President Obama is a dictator who is leading an effort to destroy the traditional definition of marriage throughout the nation: One of the really sad trends we've seen in recent years has been a concerted attack on...

One of the most annoying things about David Barton, aside from his incessant tendency to blindside his co-host Rick Green by asking him questions to which he could not possibly be expected to know the answer, is the fact that Barton rarely bothers to cite any source for the answers that he provides (nor for the "facts" that make up his historical presentations, for that matter). We have become convinced that one of the reasons Barton generally does not provide the source of his "facts" is because, if he did, people might actually go and look them up on their own and...

We are starting to suspect that David Barton either owns a time machine or else he simply has a tendency to exaggerate about the amount of work that he does. Last year, Barton was the keynote speaker at the Family Leader's "Celebrate The Family" dinner where he delivered his standard presentation, but one thing caught our attention, which was his standard assertion that he speaks to hundreds of groups every year. In this case, Barton said that he personally "spoke to over 600 different groups" in the last year, which averages out to speaking to a group and a half every... MORE >
