David Barton appeared on Bryan Fischer‘s American Family Radio yesterday to talk about the “attacks” on his book The Jefferson Lies (and by “attacks,” I mean fact-checking):
They revel in the fact that Barton is the most “dangerous man in America” because he presents a threat to “the agenda of secular fundamentalists on the left.” Then Barton cries “woe is me” about how he had no input into publisher Thomas Nelson’s decision to pull Barton’s book from the shelves:
Barton:… [publisher] Thomas Nelson never asked us for any documentation to refute [Warren] Throckmorton, which really is easy… we’ve started releasing pieces now one at a time, just pointing out how errant he is, how historically errant… so Thomas Nelson capitulated.
They weren’t finished bashing Throckmorton, whose book debunking Barton eventually forced publisher Thomas Nelson to pull Barton’s book from the shelves:
Fischer: [Throckmorton] believed in reparative therapy, for instance, for homosexuals… and it seems like when he changed his mind about that, when he switched sides on the issue of homosexuality, then it was inevitable that in the course of time, he was going to be an enemy of the Truth, basically, in all of its forms.
So… when Throckmorton said gay people can’t just “turn straight” any more than straight people can “turn gay,” Barton and Fischer knew he was trouble. Considering even a lot of evangelical Christians now say you can’t change someone’s sexual orientation, that’s a bold claim.
I love how they’re digging themselves further and further into obsolescence. It won’t be long until there’s just a small handful of Christians who are so rabidly anti-gay that they’ll only have each other to talk to.
If you want to hear two ignorant people talk about how awesome they are to fight back against the secular liberal agenda (a.k.a. “Reality”), watch that video.
