GOP Christofacist, Revisionist and Liar David Barton: “Put TheThe Fear Of God In Kids At Public Schools”

“If you want education you better include the fear of God, if you want to be a good scientist you better include the fear of God, if you want to be a good musician—1962, ’63, the U.S. Supreme Court in three decisions said no more fear of God in education, we want education to be secular. All right, that’s a theological issue. How’s that working out? In 1962, ’63, America was number one in the world in literacy, we are now number sixty-five in the world in literacy. We don’t have the fear of the Lord, because guess what, we don’t have knowledge, it goes down.”David Barton

For those of you who don’ t know Barton he’s an evangelical Christian minister, (aka charlatan) and author.  He founded WallBuilders, a Texas-based organization with a goal of exposing the claimed US constitutional separation of church and state as a myth and he’s the darling of christofacist right wing extremist who want to destroy the United States.

He is also a former Co-chair of the Republican Party of Texas  (Are we REALLY shocked?)
