Just so you know: when Muslims want every aspect of culture to operate in accordance with their Holy Book, it is Sharia and an attempt to institute theocracy and a threat that must therefore be outlawed.
But when David Barton goes on and on about how the Bible was and must remain the foundation of our nation and says that every aspect of American life needs to operate in accordance with it … that is totally different, so much so that Newt Gingrich can promise him a key role in his presidential campaign:
Some of the challenges we’re facing literally go back to us not having followed Biblical principles; economic principles is a good example, moral principles, the strength of marriage. Sure, marriage is under attack but, my gosh, it’s under attack from Christians. Did you know 87% of Christians got a divorce after they became a Christian? Now, we got to follow the word of God better than that – we can’t just use it as a devotional guide, we have to use it as a guide book for living. And so we’ll strengthen our country by living by the word of God, we strengthen our country by really teaching that and by electing leaders who really understand that. So we’ve got a lot of challenges, but there’s none that the Scriptures won’t be able to handle.
