Hmm, perhaps the fact that he was trailing Sen. John Cornyn 51 to 18 in polling played a role in David Barton's decision not to launch a primary challenge. Scott Lively is outraged that two lesbian students were voted "Queen and Queen" at a high school homecoming: "Frankly I shudder when I think about what is going to be happening with the kids who are now in kindergarten, when they get into high school after many years of this kind of propaganda." Bryan Fischer says Ken Cuccinelli lost his bid for governor "because he didn't defend social... MORE >

After a week of speculation amid effort to recruit David Barton to launch a primary challenge in Texas against Senator John Cornyn, Barton appeared on Glenn Beck's radio program today to announce his decision. After telling Beck that he had done polling and consulted with trusted advisers, Barton announced even though he believes that it would be a winnable race, he has concluded that "the time is just not right for me." But there remains a glimmer of hope, because when Beck asked Barton if he might make a Senate run at some point in the future, Barton said "that's... MORE >

Liberty Counsel is representing parents who are challenging New Jersey's ban on "ex-gay" therapy for minors. The Blaze debunks another right-wing myth, which means it is only a matter of time before Glenn Beck repeats this myth on the air. Teaching yoga in schools is turning students into "religious guinea pigs" who are being subjected to "misguided religious experimentation" by the state. Steve Deace says that if Hillary Clinton runs for president, she'll run a "personality-based campaign and not an issue-based campaign... MORE >

While appearing on "Believer's Voice of Victory," David Barton and host Kenneth Copeland discussed the importance of all Christians homeschooling their children so they are not corrupted by the secular public education system. As Barton explained, God does not approve of any sort of secular education and so how can Christians "expect to put your kids in something God has never blessed" and receive God's blessing. "There is no model whereby God blesses those in secular education," Barton asserted, adding that some Christian students might still... MORE >

David Barton’s dishonest and discredited pseudo-history hasn’t stopped him from becoming a star within the Republican Party. Despite the glaring flaws and political bias found in his work, not to mention the fact that actual conservative Christian scholars are among his most vocal critics, GOP candidates for office consistently seek Barton’s advice, counsel and endorsements. Now, Barton’s WallBuilders deputy and radio show co-host Rick Green has launched a Facebook page to draft Barton run for U.S. Senate against the Republican incumbent John Cornyn. On October 30...

A few weeks ago, Glenn Beck set out on a mission to convince Rep. Louie Gohmert to launch a primary challenge to Sen. John Cornyn; an endeavor that Gohmert was clearly reluctant to undertake. But now Beck has moved on, predicting that Gohmert will remain in the House where he will run for Speaker, which leaves open the position of primary challenger to Cornyn. So who does Beck want to see fill that slot? None other than his best friend David Barton. "Senator David Barton," Beck just kept repeating on his radio program today, unable to keep the elated smile off of his... MORE >

David Barton recently sat down with televangelist Kenneth Copeland for another series of "Believer's Voice of Victory" programs that are apparently supposed to air sometime next week, as lots of the discussion is focused on mobilizing people to vote in the upcoming off-year elections in states like Virginia, New Jersey, and elsewhere. Several of the programs have already been uploaded to YouTube, include one in which Copeland and Barton declare that voting for candidates who support abortion opens the door to a curse upon the nation that results in floods, tornadoes, and...
