The facts on 'historian' David Barton

Posted By on Tue, Apr 19, 2011 at 9:50 AM

Mike Huckabee has said the American people should be "forced at gunpoint" to listen to David Barton, "the single best historian in America today."

Barton has visited Hot Springs to aid the Religious Right's takeover of the levers of local government in the spa.

So it's a timely moment for a report from People for the American Way, debunking — again — Barton's religious proselytizing under the pretext of history.

It's all there — the myth of the Christian nation, biblical capitalism and anti-environmentalism, gay prejudice, cherry picking facts on civil rights.
