Feder: Napoleon Was a Christian. And Therefore…

Last year, the Worldnetdaily began publishing columns by Bill Federer, who is kind of a poor man’s David Barton. He attempts to show that America really, truly was supposed to be a Christian nation, using the same kind of dishonest techniques that Barton uses.

Barton Finds Two Useless PhDs to Agree With Him

There are few things more important to the Christian right than academic credentials. That’s why so many creationists, like Kent Hovind, call themselves “Dr” by getting worthless PhDs from diploma mills. And it’s why David Barton made such a huge deal over the fact that two people with PhDs have written a book agreeing with him about Jefferson:

Barton Caught in Another Whopper of a Lie

David Barton has added a new trick to his repertoire. In addition to lying about American history and the Constitution, he’s now telling lies about his own personal history. First he lied about being on the Oral Roberts basketball team when he went to school there. Now he’s apparently lying about having been a translator for the Russian gymnastics team. Warren Throckmorton has been tracking down the details. Here’s what Barton claimed on his radio show:

Pennsylvania Pastors Not Concerned About Barton’s Lies

Warren Throckmorton, who teaches at Grove City College in Pennsylvania, notes that the Pennsylvania Pastors Network has invited David Barton to speak at a conference in Lancaster.

Shocking News: Barton Caught Lying Again

If it seems like I do a post like this at least once a week, it’s because I do. More accurately, it’s because David Barton tells a lie at least once a week and Warren Throckmorton usually catches him at it. The latest is his dishonest attempt to defend his claim that the Bible says there will never be an AIDS vaccine. Here’s what Barton had to say:

More Proof Barton Lied About Non-Existent Basketball Career

Warren Throckmorton has found even more proof that David Barton flat out lied about his basketball career at Oral Roberts University. Not only does the university say he was never on the basketball team, the trainer for the team says his very specific description of the team’s workouts isn’t even in the ballpark of reality. To refresh your memory, this is what Barton said:
