David Barton Says America Cannot Legalize Abortion Or Homosexuality Because They Violate God's 'Fixed Moral Law'

On the latest installment of his "Foundations of Freedom" series, David Barton echoed the claim put forth by former Rep. Michele Bachmann in an earlier episode when she stated that America can never enact laws that legalize things like abortion or gay marriage because they contradict the moral law established by God.

In the latest episode, Barton and his co-host Rick Green asserted that both homosexuality and abortion violate the "laws of nature," which Barton once again laughably claimed was directly incorporated into the Constitution through the Seventh Amendment. As such, Barton proclaimed, the Constitution explicitly prohibits the government or the people from ever enacting any law that violates God's "fixed moral law." 

"You can't have a majority vote on whether we're going to have liberty or whether we're going to have a right to defend yourself," Barton said. "You can't vote on inalienable rights that come from God. You also can't vote on whether abortion is right or wrong or whether homosexuality is right or wrong; that's a fixed moral law."

  • Michael Savage is not happy about Sarah Palin's endorsement of Donald Trump: "I’m afraid we’re seeing the meltdown now of the campaign where they’re turning to the very same people who destroyed Romney. They’re undermining him from within."
  • The National Organization for Marriage came up $17,850 short in its end of the year fundraising effort.

  • Finally, Rick Green has scored an extremely important endorsement in his bid for the Texas Supreme Court: Ray Comfort.

David Barton's Sidekick Launches Another Bid For A Seat On The Texas Supreme Court

Back in 2010, Rick Green, a former right-wing Texas state legislator turned David Barton's sidekick at WallBuilders, made a run for a seat on the Texas Supreme Court, only to lose in a run-off for the GOP nomination amid worries about his controversial history. Since then, Green has continued to serve as co-host of the daily "WallBuilders Live" radio program alongside Barton, while producing his own Bartonesque presentations on American history

Today, Green announced in an email that he will once again be seeking a seat on the Texas Supreme Court, not because he wants to but because so many people have practically begged him to run:

For months I've been approached by conservative leaders across Texas and asked to consider running for Texas Supreme Court.

Honestly, I wasn't very excited about it at first. I have a fantastic job and my family is loving the opportunity we have to live out the liberty that we are given. My family has been blessed with opportunities to travel across the country and teach Americans about the Constitution and our founding fathers. It doesn't get much better than that.

But as the calls continued, my children started reminding me of the principle I have taught them: that every generation is in desperate need of leaders willing to sacrifice convenience for the sake of liberty.

Today we have a Supreme Court, both nationally and at times in Texas, which has ignored the rule of law, has trampled on marriage and has refused to stand for the very freedom upon which our nation was founded.

The deliberate violation of separation of powers is a threat to the liberty we all cherish. It’s time to put a constitutional watchdog on the Supreme Court.

I am answering the call today with my family by my side, excited about the challenge and opportunity ahead. I NEED your support.

In a video announcing his candidacy, Green says that he does not even want to run for this office but simply must because "several months ago, our Texas Supreme Court handed down a decision that ignored our Texas constitutional definition of marriage." As such, Green says he feels obligated to run in order to replace one of the justices who supported that position:

For the record, the Texas Supreme Court never struck down the state's anti-gay marriage amendment, but did decline to prevent a lesbian couple who have gotten married in Massachusetts from getting divorced in Texas and that seems to the case that so outraged Green that he had no choice but to launch a bid for a seat on the court.

'Love And Sex Are Not Synonymous': The Right's Latest Feeble Effort To Defeat #LoveWins

Anti-gay activists have been reeling ever since the Supreme Court issued its ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide. In response, David Barton and Rick Green interviewed Dr. Everett Piper of Oklahoma Wesleyan University on "WallBuilders Live" today, seeking his advice about how Christians should now go about arguing against gay marriage in the face growing support for marriage equality..

Piper, Green and Barton were all convinced that they have truth and logic on their side when, in reality, their arguments were little more than straw men that are capable of convincing only people who already shared their convictions.

For instance, all three men were all extremely impressed with their argument that sex does not equal love, which is the sort of thing that only works on people who refuse to realize that gay couples can actually love one another.

Piper explained that the best way to combat the "love wins" argument is simply to point out that "sex and love aren't the same thing."

"This isn't about love, it's about sex," he said, "so call a spade a spade. Define your terms. The debate in the culture right now is a debate of what sexual acts is acceptable, it's not a debate about love, so distinguish between the two. There are lots of people I love that I don't have sex with, nor should I have sex with. Love and sex are not synonymous, period!"

Gay sex, of course, was decriminalized over a decade ago, so obviously the marriage movement was not about seeking permission to have sex, but rather about committed couples wanting to express their love and have their families recognized and protected by the law.

But despite the obvious absurdity of Piper's argument, Green was convinced.

"That's good," he cooed. "You're spot-on, brother."

Barton was equally impressed.

"That's a great point. Love and sex are not the same thing," he said. "You don't have sex with everyone you love and because you have sex with someone doesn't mean you love them and so we've given away that argument. Sex equals love? No, it does not. It never has. It doesn't with prostitution ... That's a great point."

The fact that these men cannot even comprehend the possibility that gay couples might be having sex because they are in love does not bode particularly well for their efforts to win the battle against the idea that "love wins."

Barton: Adding A Woman To The $10 Bill Would 'Denigrate' The Treasury Department And Our Entire Economic System

Last month, the Treasury Department announced that a woman would be featured on the $10 bill when it is redesigned in 2020 and David Barton was so outraged that he brought the National Review's Quin Hillyer onto his "WallBuilders Live" radio program today to explain why this decision is so "outrageous and ignorant."

As Hillyer explained, the change is really nothing more than an attempt to "erase our history."

"I think there is something worse afoot," he said. "You combine this with all sort of other things they've done and it looks to me like they literally want to erase our history, especially the respect in which our founding is held. They want to remake this country; in fact, as Obama said, to transform America, and you don't transform America from what it was without trying to erase what it was. And part of the erasure involves making everybody forget what the values were, what the principles were that guided our founding. And so they want to destroy respect for those values and principles and this is part of that mission."

"People really do need to get outraged and stay outraged about this," Hillyer continued, "because this isn't just about a face on a bill, this is about maintaining, preserving, respecting, honoring the history, the good history of the greatest nation ever created on earth."

For his part, Barton claimed that adding a woman to the $10 bill would "denigrate" the Department of Treasury and, by extension, our entire economic system, while Barton's co-host Rick Green declared that such a move would be "bad news for the history of our country."

Creationist Tax-Dodger Kent 'Dr. Dino' Hovind Is A Modern Day Job

Today's "WallBuilders Live" radio program was dedicated entirely to an interview that Rick Green and David Barton recently conducted with Kent Hovind, the right-wing folk hero known as "Dr. Dino" from his days running Dinosaur Adventure Land, a creationist theme park in Florida.

Hovind has spent most of the last decade in prison for "structuring" in an effort to avoid paying federal income tax on the grounds that all of the money generated by his theme park belonged to God. He is currently facing even more legal troubles stemming from his alleged efforts to illegally prevent the government from selling off properties seized from him in the original tax case.

Today's WallBuilders interview was entirely one-sided, as Green and Barton more or less allowed Hovind to tell his side of the story unchallenged as he repeatedly insisted that he had never broken any laws and had never done anything wrong and, at one point, even compared himself to Job.

After Green noted that Hovind has not received much support from the conservative Christian community because many believe Hovind to be nothing more than a tax protestor, Hovind insisted that he was nothing of the sort.

"People who say that about me," Hovind asserted, "are doing the same thing Job's friends did to him. Bildad, Eliphaz, and Zophar, they said 'Job, you had to do something wrong or this wouldn't have happened.' Their whole song and dance for the whole book of Job was 'Job, you had to sin.' Finally, God had to explain it to them in Chapter 42, guys, go tell Job you're sorry. And so maybe that will happen in my case":

  • Gordon Klingenschmitt is now refusing to give interviews to 9 News in Colorado until the station issues a retraction of its coverage of his recent comments, which the station is refusing to do.
  • You are invited to the premier of Rick Green's new television program, "Red, White, Blue, & Green."
  • BarbWire's Gina Miller has penned another typically reasonable column: "Since Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) took office, the militant homosexual movement has made terrible gains for their sordid goals in all areas of our nation, and the homofascists are hell-bent to defend those gains from any real or perceived losses."
  • Peter LaBarbera declares that "Christians and moral-minded citizens have been victimized by a liberal, elitist pro-homosexual orthodoxy that increasingly brooks no dissent."
  • Finally, it really is too bad that Michele Bachmann is no longer in Congress: "With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 300 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German Wings flight - a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks. After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?"

Barton Says The Founding Fathers 'Tied Religion To The Constitution To Give It Strength' Through Oath Requirements

Most of this week's "WallBuilders Live" radio program has consisted of excerpts from the new DVD series "Constitution Alive! A Citizen's Guide to the Constitution" featuring Rick Green and David Barton. On yesterday's program, Barton explained that that the Constitution’s requirement that members of Congress and the president take an oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States" was the Founding Fathers' way of infusing religion into the document since an oath is a "direct appeal to God" to hold lawmakers accountable for their actions and "there is no such thing as a secular oath."

Any oath that is not made to God, Barton said, must instead rely on "the goodness of man and there's not a whole lot in me that says the goodness of man is great. Just look back across the Twentieth Century and the one hundred and fifty million lives that were lost because Stalin wasn't good and Hitler wasn't good and Tojo wasn't good and Pol Pot wasn't good."

The Founders knew this, Barton said, and so they "tied religion to the Constitution to give it strength" through these oath requirements, asserting that any attempt to implement the Constitution without religion is like trying to breathe on the moon.

"You and I, if we go to the moon and breathe there, we'll die," Barton said, "because that's not our atmosphere. And if you take a secular atmosphere to the Constitution, it will die because that's not its atmosphere. It was birthed and created in a religious atmosphere and if you take that air out of the room, it will suffocate. It will die because it's not made that way":

Barton: The Founding Fathers Wanted The Bible Taught In Schools To Prevent Another Inquisition

On today's episode of "WallBuilders Live," David Barton and Rick Green responded to a question from a listener who complained that she was watching a program about extraterrestrials on the History Channel recently in which some professor from Notre Dame University asserted that Thomas Jefferson "hated Christianity and considered it a dangerous religion" that was responsible for atrocities such as the Inquisition.

As if that set-up was not already strange enough, Barton then launched into an explanation that "American Christianity" was nothing like the "European Christianity" that carried out the Inquisition, asserting that, in fact, the Christianity responsible for the Inquisition was not really Christianity at all.

As Barton put it, the Christianity in existence during the Inquisition was one "in which the Bible had no role."

"You had high illiteracy, people did not read, could not read the Bible," he said. "The Bible was not available to them, it was not in their language. Folks who tried to bring the Bible to the common man got themselves killed."

Barton's co-host Rick Green then piped up to declare that "you almost can't call it Christianity; it's really a hijacked religion, it was abuse of power in the name of Christianity."

"That's right," agreed Barton, as he then went on to explain that the Founding Fathers wanted the Bible taught as the foundation of public education in America in order to prevent another Inquisition from ever taking place.

"If you look at the very first public school law passed in America," Barton said, "that act says we just came out of Europe and what they call Christianity over there is full of atrocities. That's not it. We don't want that in America, so in America we're going to make sure that the Bible is the basis of all public schools because if you read the Bible, you won't do those atrocities."

Florida Lawmaker: Make Students Watch Dinesh D'Souza's Movie Because America Owes It To Those Who Died Protecting Freedom

Florida state Senator Alan Hays was the guest on "WallBuilders Lives" today, explaining the need for his legislation that would require every eighth grade student in the state to watch Dinesh D'Souza's ridiculous film "America: Imagine The World Without Her."

As Hays explained to host Rick Green, requiring schools to show this film will help to stimulate an intellectual exchange of ideas among students who otherwise will learn "nothing but a bunch of dogma."

And this is vitally import, he explained, because "over the years, there have been hundreds of thousands of Americans who have given their lives on foreign soil to defend freedom here in America and around the world and we owe it to them to protect that freedom."

"It's our obligation to keep that freedom going," Hays said, "and this movie can play a very important role in that":

David Barton: Obama, Kerry Won't Fight Terrorism Because Of Their Support For Abortion Rights

On today's "WallBuilders Live" radio program, David Barton and Rick Green invited Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert on to discuss America’s role in the Mideast. Barton declared that "terrorism was really on the ropes" before President Obama removed the last U.S. troops from Iraq, but now "terrorism has really rebuilt itself ... [because] this has been an administration that has not done a good job of trying to take terrorists down or take terrorism out."

Barton and co-host Green repeatedly expressed their desire to have someone like Gohmert serving as president instead of President Obama because, they said, Gohmert understands the difference between good and evil, which Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, and the rest of the administration can never grasp because they support abortion rights and gay marriage.

"I don't know why that Louie [Gohmert] would think that John Kerry has any moral equivalency given the position that John Kerry holds on marriage, on homosexuality, on abortion, on religious conscience, on religious expressions," Barton said. "I mean, since he opposes everything that's traditionally moral, why would there be a question of whether he's moral" when it comes to terrorism?

While Barton said that he was being a little facetious, Green replied that he was absolutely correct because "if [Kerry is] so wrong on all these other clear moral issues, how can we expect him to figure this one out."

"If you're wrong on an issue as simple as innocent life, then you have real trouble with guilty life as well," Barton explained. "When you take an unborn child this is innocent life and he doesn't think that that's right and wrong to take the life of an innocent unborn child, then when you see something like Hamas, which is guilty people who are murderers being taken out, he thinks that that's abominable."

"His whole value system is skewed," Barton concluded, "and that's the way so much of this administration has been," which is why it has been wrong on everything from economic policy, social policy, and foreign policy.

"You just can't be a world leader if you don't believe that certain things are right and certain things are wrong":

FL Legislator Says Obama's Election 'Is An Indictment Of Our Educational System In This Country'

Infuriated by the state Department of Education's approval of a textbook that he felt was baised in favor of Islam, Florida state Sen. Alan Hays introduced legislation giving local school districts the power to choose their own textbooks. 

The legislation was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott last month and today Hays was the guest on "WallBuilders Live" to discuss his effort where he declared that the election of President Barack Obama is proof positive that our entire educational system is fundamentally broken.

Obama's election, Hays said, "is an indictment of our educational system in this country," explaining that "it's because our students have not been properly educated that somebody with that kind of resume could even be considered a candidate, much less elected."

"It's an embarrassment to all of us," Hays concluded and host Rick Green completely agreed, saying that Obama's election "shows that we've dumbed down the education system to the point that our people do not now know to measure a candidate against the values upon which a constitutional republic can survive":

Right Wing Leftovers - 5/15/14

Just Days From Failure, Rick Green Finds A Convenient Excuse To Start Over

Last month, we reported that Rick Green, David Barton's right-hand man at WallBuilders, had launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $45,000 to fund a reality television program featuring his family "traveling the nation’s historical sites and teaching about American exceptionalism and our Constitution."

The effort had not been particularly successful as, with just nine days to go, Green had only raised a little over half of the money he needed:

As luck would have it, the Religious Right is currently up-in-arms that Kickstarter had allegedly "censored" a campaign by conservative filmmakers to raise money to produce a movie about Kermit Gosnell, which was all the excuse that Green needed to justify re-launching his effort using a more "family friendly" service called FaithLauncher and starting over, as he announced in an email he sent out today:

Two weeks later, we are more than halfway to our funding goal with plenty of time to reach it. But last night I learned something that made me immediately regret my decision to do business with them and has caused me to kick Kickstarter to the curb.

As you may have seen in the news, successful documentarians Phelim & Ann McAleer (Fracnation, Mine Your Own Business, Not Evil Just Wrong) had their new project rejected by Kickstarter. The Gosnell Movie tells the horrific story of mass murder in Gosnell’s abortion clinic and exposes the media for ignoring the worst mass murderer in U.S. history. But the Kickstarter execs were concerned about offending their community by talking about abortion, despite the fact they have multiple projects about rape, stabbing, and more.

Kickstarter executives most certainly have the right to accept or reject any project they choose. That is the free market at work and I’d fight and die for their right to do so freely.

However, it cuts both ways.

We also have the free market right to choose vendors that support our values. Or at the very least, that do not reject our values. This is not a perfect science and not always possible. Conservatives are often forced to use market-dominated products like Apple or Google, despite the fact their corporate management supports left-wing causes.

But there is no monopoly on crowd funding sites. There are more than twenty options and I even found one that specifically supports faith-based projects, FaithLauncher.

Interestingly, Green's Kickstater page is still operational as of the writing of this post, so we are not quite sure what Green means when he says that he decided "to kick Kickstarter to the curb" other than that it provided him with a convenient excuse to re-launch his fundraising effort which appeared destined to fail to reach its stated goal.

'Red, White, Blue, & Green': A Reality Show For David Barton's Right Hand Man?

Rick Green is a former Texas state representative who became David Barton's right-hand man at WallBuilders after losing his bid for re-election several years ago. In this capacity, Green has served as Barton's co-host on the daily "WallBuilders Live" radio broadcast, where he eagerly agrees with Barton's anti-gay statements, blindly accepts his falsehoods, and even spews some of this own, all while serving as one of Barton's most dogged defenders. A few years ago, Green made his own run for a seat on the Texas Supreme Court and very nearly won despite his controversial history.

Green has long been essentially a poor-man's David Barton, delivering Barton-style "historical" presentations, often with his family, without ever receiving any of Barton's fame or recognition ... but that might be about to change as Green announced on his website today that a Kickstarter campaign has been launched to raise $45,000 to create a pilot for a reality show about Green and his family "traveling the nation’s historical sites and teaching about American exceptionalism and our Constitution":

Have you ever wished you could visit all the wonderful sites of our nation’s founding? Most of us don’t have time or money to do that, but hey, we can dream, right? As long as we’re dreaming, let’s take a captivating storyteller along on the trip who can bring those places to life for us. And then, let’s take away all the travel, hotels, and the high cost. Sounds like a dream vacation, right?

Well, this dream is actually becoming a reality. In fact, it is becoming a reality show, but with true purpose!

Not just any reality show though; this one stars one of my all-time favorite families traveling the nation’s historical sites and teaching about American exceptionalism and our Constitution!

The Green Family is one of the most fun-loving families I know, but they unite fun with purpose as they pursue their shared goal of rekindling the torch of liberty in America. They have been traveling and speaking across the nation for years, and have often wished they could take everyone along to share the inspiring things they’ve experienced.

Through this new video project, they plan to do just that.

When you sit down to watch an episode of Red, White, Blue, and Green you’ll be taking a trip back in time to one of America’s treasured locations rich with inspirational history. You’ll marvel at the scenery and architecture, learn as Rick tells the stories behind those places in his own inimitable style, and laugh as the family experiences the joys and frustrations of living their calling. Plus, you get a sneak peek into the crazy world of a close-knit, baseball-loving family on a mission to restore our nation!

More than anything else, you’ll share the inspiration and hope in the eyes of the Green kids as they relive America’s history, and you’ll be encouraged to take up that torch of liberty anew yourself.

Several networks are interested and we have an opportunity to vote with our dollars to show there are a lot of us out here that would enjoy this kind of programming. Production has already begun on the first few episodes and a director’s cut of the pilot is waiting for your own personal input and critique.

If you will partner with the Greens through their Kickstarter project, they will be able to continue producing at locations like Valley Forge, Independence Hall, the Alamo, Colonial Williamsburg, the site of Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death” speech, and so many other amazing places.
