Barton: Obama's Decision Allowing Flexibility in Welfare Work Requirements is 'Anti-Biblical'
Today's episode of "WallBuilders Live" was dedicated entirely to perpetuating the right-wing lie that President Obama had "gutted" welfare reform by removing the work requirement; a claim that has repeatedly been shown to be demonstrably false.
But, as we have noted time and time again, the fundamental falsehood of a claim isn't going to stop David Barton from repeating it over and over, which is just what he did today on the program where, for good measure, he also declared that the waivers were "anti-biblical" and further proof that President Obama is hostile to the Bible:
This is serious stuff and not the least of which is on what basis do you have to unilaterally rewrite the welfare law? And by the way, it was on a biblical principle; the Bible says if you don't work, you don't eat and he removed the word requirement. He says "well, you can eat without working."
See, that's another area where I could say he is biblically hostile because the Bible says if you don't work, you don't eat and he says "well, not in this country, we're not going to do that." So not only is it anti-Constitutional, it's anti-biblical and that's a real problem.
