Warren Throckmorton catches David Barton finding a whole new way to lie to his ignorant and credulous audience, knowing full well they’ll never catch him at it. Take a look at this chart that Barton likes to show during his talks to claim that violent crime has gone up almost 700% since Bible reading was removed from schools.
He begins with 1963, the year Bible reading was taken out. And he ends with…1993, conveniently the year when violent crime rates began to drop steadily for the last 20 years. Turns out there are four kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, statistics and every time David Barton opens his mouth.
