David Barton Says It's The Role Of Judges To 'Render Judgment For God'

On the latest episode in his "Foundations of Freedom" series, right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton asserted that the judiciary has lost its way because judges and juries have forgotten that they are to "render judgement for God" and rule according to the Bible.

Barton, who heads a super PAC backing Ted Cruz, and Vanderbilt professor Carol Swain, who serves on the Cruz campaign's "Religious Liberty Advisory Council," were discussing the topic of "the Bible and the judiciary" when Barton declared that people no longer trust the judiciary because "judges themselves have left God out of the picture," which Swain blamed on the fact that judges are being "educated at institutions where they come out as secular humanists, and so there's no fear of God."

"God is a god of justice," Barton said, "and when judges forget that they render judgement for God, you no longer get justice in courts."
