David Barton’s book The Jefferson Lies has been pulled from the shelves by the publisher. Apparently, and this is the irony, because it’s full of lies.
For those unaware, David Barton is a Christian Evangelical deeply concerned with “Revisionist History”. He maintains the Founding Fathers intended for The United States to be a Christian Nation™, and has been publishing ‘proof’ to back up his claims.
David Barton is not actually a Historian by the way, he has a degree in “Christian Education” from Oral Roberts University and works with the Texas GOP.
I think the most terrifying part about all of this is that the book was a New York Times bestseller.
