Barton: "Anything The Bible Talks About Should Not Be Considered Secular"
As we noted earlier, Jon Stewart and Mike Huckabee had an extended discussion on last night's "The Daily Show" about David Barton and the entire Religious Right agenda to claim that the United States is and always ought to be a Christian nation governed by Biblical principles.
In the third clip, Huckabee claimed that Stewart was "an incredible exaggerator" on this issue, which was rooted in needless fear about their intentions.
Given that much of this discussion was rooted in Huckabee's praise for, and defense of, Barton, I wanted to stress the point that Barton is not simply encouraging Christians to take an active role in politics and the culture, but is rather a Seven Mountains Dominionist who believes that every - every - element of our government and society ought to be structured in accordance with the Bible so that those who hold a "secular viewpoint cannot survive." This includes everything from abolishing the Minimum Wage and Estate Tax to setting our immigration policies, all in accordance with the Bible and all on the grounds that God will hold everyone accountable for how they vote.
And to drive home this point, I put together this video of Barton taken from a 10-part, two-week appearance he made on "Gospel Truth" with Andrew Wommack back in 2009. The entire series just showed up on YouTube and I watched every posted video and pulled out all the sections where Barton asserts that Christians ought to be in control of our society and ought to use the power that comes with this positions in ensure that everything from our tax policies to our building codes should reflect Biblical principles:
