The David Barton controversy


David Barton

David Barton, president of the WallBuilders organization and a frequent guest on Glenn Beck's broadcasts, is one of America's most popular Christian history writers. Liberal critics have long accused Barton of misinterpretations and errors, and readers of the History News Network recently voted a new Barton book, The Jefferson Lies, as the "Least Credible History Book in Print." But now some conservative Christian scholars are publicly questioning Barton's work, too.

Jay W. Richards, senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, and author with James Robison of Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It's Too Late, spoke alongside Barton at Christian conferences as recently as last month. Richards says in recent months he has grown increasingly troubled about Barton's writings, so he asked 10 conservative Christian professors to assess Barton's work. ...

I found a lengthy commentary in "The Blaze," which was interesting anyway, David Barton Responds to ‘Jefferson Lies’ Controversy and Warren Throckmorton | TheBlaze.com

I would add even if the leading Founding Fathers weren't Christian, ones like Benjamin Franklin were very appreciative of the Protestant environment that they were brought up in, and where their Revolution took place. They knew which side their bread was buttered on.

Jefferson was a deist.

The Adames were Unitarian

George Washington was a Free Mason

Who needs to pick 10 conservative experts, though it's fine that they also agree with the "liberal" ones.

I see there is place on this blog for further comments, The U.S. Founding Fathers: Their Religious Beliefs

Wikipedia wrote:
Lambert (2003) has examined the religious affiliations and beliefs of the Founders. Of the 55 delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention, 49 were Protestants, and two were Roman Catholics (D. Carroll, and Fitzsimons). Among the Protestant delegates to the Constitutional Convention, 28 were Church of England (or Episcopalian, after the American Revolutionary War was won), eight were Presbyterians, seven were Congregationalists, two were Lutherans, two were Dutch Reformed, and two were Methodists.
for another non-Barton source, the above Wikipedia article. Founding Fathers.

Naturally affiliation doesn't necessarily mean Christian!

I wonder who picked these "10 conservative Christian professors"?....I have heard Barton speak about men like Jefferson before and unlike much of the media he presents the pros and cons of the man's life.
