The Republican party, GOP, tea baggers, or whatever brand-name they want to be called, are dangerous to the very core of American values. That much has been figured out by pretty much anybody who isn't affiliated with them, which is an increasing number, by the way. The latest evidence of the collective far right's attack on the entire country comes straight from the mouth of David Barton.
The separation of church and state is an extremely important element of American life that assures every single person in this country has a secular government. A secular government isn't a biased government. It cannot treat you according to Biblical scripture, and it can't govern based on the Quran. Regardless of what religion is "the majority" in this nation, the government is to have absolutely no affiliation on a level that affects the lives of its people.
It seems that republican talking heads and puppet masters have forgotten that important part of the fundamentals of the United States while completely spitting in the faces of the founding fathers. David Barton revealed that the Christian-right essentially want to throw away the United States Constitution.
The video at the bottom of this post shows Barton explaining that Biblical law overrides the law of man and the law of the United States. He declares that the United States Supreme Court should essentially cower to the rules of the Bible.
This Texas bigot is essentially thumping on his Bible like a gorilla pounds on its chest, rabidly arguing against equality for homosexual Americans. As a new era of civil rights is upon the citizens of this country, people like David Barton call out for anger and hatred against a large amount of people who share the same rights to be here as they. Homosexual Americans pay taxes; they go to war and die in battle. They do everything heterosexual people do, and sometimes more, with a strong face-on because it is tough living in a country, fighting for a country and caring about a country that is full of knuckle-draggers that don't respect them like the human beings they are.
David Barton is in cahoots with a lot of big powers in the GOP, and that is what makes his behavior all the more threatening. He is reaching out to those politicians like Rick Santorum, Christine O'Donnell, and those who do not want a better America, but an America reminiscent of the 1950s and prior, and anyone who has read a history book knows what it was like for anyone who wasn't a white Christian male in those days.
