David Barton, Who Refused To Run For Office, Now Says Refusing To Run For Office Is 'Pure Selfishness'
SUBMITTED BY: Kyle Mantyla, Thursday 03/13/2014, 12:48pm
For the second time in one week, we have now watched David Barton appear on a Religious Right television program where he lectures Christians on the necessity of running for political office as the host mutely sits there and nods in agreement without ever pointing out that, just a few months ago, Barton himself did the very thing he is now saying that Christians must never do. Appearing on "The Difference With Matthew Hagee" yesterday, Barton repeated the Parable of the Thornbush while declaring that a Christian who refuses to run for office when asked to do so by his or her fellow...

The Texas state chapter of David Lane’s extremist American Renewal Project is set to host Sen. Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott, the state attorney general and GOP gubernatorial nominee, at a “Pastors’ Policy Briefing” next month. Cruz has also addressed the group’s chapters in Iowa and South Carolina, two early primary states. Mike Huckabee, who like Cruz has also floated the possibility of running for president in 2016, will also appear at the event. The Texas Freedom Network points out that at a Texas “Pastors’ Policy Briefing” in 2005,... MORE >
Barton Says More Christians Were Killed For Their Faith Last Year Than In The Previous 2000 Years Combined

As we have pointed out before, the key to David Barton's success is the fact that his audiences blindly accept everything he says without question, never bothering to actually verify any claim that he makes. It has gotten so bad that Barton is now basically free to say things that, with even a moment's thought, any person ought to be able to realize cannot possibly be true. But still, nobody ever challenges him and so we end up witnessing exchanges like this one from "WallBuilders Live" today where he boldly declares that more Christians were murdered for their faith...

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

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'
SUBMITTED BY: Kyle Mantyla, Friday 02/21/2014, 2:26pm
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 >
