David Barton Confronted

For those of you that are unfamiliar with David Barton, he is the premiere figure for the Religious Right on the issue of redefining America as a "Christian Nation." Barton is the author of several books on the topic and runs a website and radio show that can be seen here.

Over the years, Barton has labored to portray the current mainstream historical community as having an agenda of eradicating any and all traces of God from our history. Simply put, this couldn't be further from the truth. The reality is that it is Barton who has twisted and fabricated history to fit his own ultra-Evangelical Christian agenda in an effort to portray the Founding Fathers as fundamentalist Christians

In the following videos, Chris Rodda debunks many of the historical mistakes made by Mr. Barton over the years. This is long but well worth your time! Enjoy:
