David Barton, Who Refused To Run For Office, Now Says Refusing To Run For Office Is 'Pure Selfishness'
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 Christians is being selfish.
"If your fellow citizens tell you they want you in office, you don't have a right to say no," Barton said. "That's pure selfishness."
Of course, just four months ago a movement to draft Barton to run for the US Senate in a challenge to Sen. John Cornyn that was championed by none other than Glenn Beck was quashed when Barton declared that running for office was not right for him because his "role is to continue educating, equipping, and inspiring citizens through the work we do at WallBuilders."
Keep in mind that this is literally the exact sort of selfishness that he says Christians cannot display when asked to run for office:
