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."...

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 >

Later this month, a Religious Right gathering is scheduled to take place in Texas called "San Antonio in Black, White, and Brown" which, as the name suggests, is aimed at unifying the White, Black, and Hispanic communities in order to establish a "Biblical worldview" in the city: David Barton and Harry Jackson will be among the speakers at this event, sharing the stage with several other figures who played high-profile roles in Gov. Rick Perry's Dominionist-dominated "The Response" prayer rally back in 2011, including Doug Stringer and, more interestingly,... MORE >

Gary Bauer is not happy that AT&T had condemned Russia anti-gay crackdown: "[W]hen I worked in the Reagan White House, I don't recall AT&T or other major corporations condemning the Soviet Union while Jews and political dissenters rotted in Siberian gulags. Sadly, while Ronald Reagan worked to rebuild pride in America and America's standing in the world, many corporate elites were eager to trade and "coexist" with the Soviets. And today most big corporations don't feel a need to condemn Christian persecution and human rights violations. Why does... MORE >
