    A DIY Jefferson’s “The Jefferson Lies” toolkit?

    A David Barton dartboard. I want one for my birthday!

    I’d give him the conscience to reflect on his slaves. Other “men of his time” had figured out slavery is wrong. Oh, but right, he helped found a nation of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich, (especially, at the time, slaveholders).

    I dont see why its ok to throw Darts at Mr.Rogers.

    Also, why is he wearing a cowboy hat and where is his sweater?!

  5. 5

    @4 That is truly an insult to Mr. Rogers.

    I’ll take Mr. Rogers’ brand of Christianity over Barton’s any day.

    It is unbelievable to me what many people are willing to do for some money and some fame. I wouldn’t wish the un-life that Barton leads on anyone.
    At least we know he doesn’t believe in an afterlife – or can hop that the insipid, endless, meaningless afterlife he is stupid enough to pretend to believe in turns out, for him, to be reality.

    So, is someone like DB worse than a simply cynical underling working at Faux news, or advising Mitt on how best to lie to become the pResident who finishes the goals of the Shrub pResidency: to bankrupt the US and institute a one-party state?

    Is it better to do evil unconsciously (but not out of ignorance), semi-consciously (out of self-deception), or consciously (out of short-term, non-life-threatening self-interest)?

    I concur with many sentiments of the 6 replies above. Let us remember April 13 for all 3 great heroic Atheists; Tho Jeff, Hitch & DR Madalyn Eads Murray O’Hair. Christopher Hitchens died LAST YEAR on the 1791 anniversary of Amendment One adopted to our godless US Constitution. Tho Jeff died on the 50th anniversary of his 1776 Declaration dedicated to: ” Nature and Nature’s god.” Madalyn fought tirelessly from 1959 to 1995 to defeat theocracy. Demand from each believer in the public square: “exactly what is a god? Until one such thing as a god is produced present & verifiable for scientists to conclude any god is extant, prayers by rote for all assembled is treason, betraying sanity and our US Constitution.”

    When Barton called his book Jefferson Lies, was he trying to be ironic?

    When he styles himself as an expert on lying about Jefferson I say ‘Pat that man on the back. He certainly is.’

    Well, he did do the same thing to the bible (minus the dartboard).
