A few months ago David Barton declared that because Starbucks takes liberal positions on things like marriage equality, it’s unbiblical to drink their coffee. Now he says that if you do drink Starbucks, you’re palling around with the “enemies of God” and he’ll punish you for it:

With all the attention paid to Ken Ham’s creation museum over the last few years, it’s easy to forget about the Institute for Creation Research’s museum in Southern California.

Many years ago, when I first started my blog, I had many exchanges with Joe Carter. He then had the blog Evangelical Realism and now works for the Southern Baptist Convention and blogs at The Gospel Coalition. He’s also a former Marine.

Well this is disappointing news to me. Pseudo-historian and professional liar David Barton has decided not to challenge Sen. John Cornyn in the primary. He thinks he can win, mind you, but “the time is just not right for me.” I’m sure God spoke to him personally.

This is just a weird exchange between David Barton and televangelist con man Kenneth Copeland. Barton says that if you put your kids in public schools, God will not bless you or your children. How would you tell if someone is “blessed”? When something good happens to them? Do good things never happen to those …

David Barton is not a historian. He’s also not a climatologist, a seismologist or a meteorologist. But he’s got a simple explanation for earthquakes, hurricanes and extreme weather patterns — it’s all because of abortion, which leads to God’s judgment.

That talk about David Barton being recruited by the Tea Party to mount a primary challenge to Sen. John Cornyn in Texas is not just idle talk. The National Review Online reports that Barton is seriously considering it, but wants to be courted — by the people, of course.

Warren Throckmorton is blogging at Patheos now, which is pretty cool for them. He notes that an effort is now being undertaken to draft David Barton to run for the Senate against Sen.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before (about Ron Paul, David Barton and many others). A far right Republican candidate for public office associates himself with white nationalist groups and speaks to their conferences. This time it’s Chris McDaniel, a Tea Party type challenging Sen.

The Family Leader, a wingnut group in Iowa, is going to “celebrate the family” — that is, they’re going to attack families that include gay people or consider them human beings — by bringing in lying fraud David Barton for a dinner in November. And you’re gonna love how they present him:

Did you know David Barton has a son? I didn’t either. But he’s a chip off the old blockhead and he’s being groomed to take over the family business of spewing lies and stupidity. Filling in for dear ol’ dad on his radio show, Tim Barton had this to say:
