Biography

Chris Rodda is the author of Liars For Jesus: The Religious Right's Alternate Version of American History and Debunking David Barton's Jefferson Lies: #2 - Jefferson Founded a Secular University. Since the release of Liars For Jesus in 2006, Chris has been blogging at Talk2Action.org, Huffington Post, and elsewhere about the use of historical revisionism in everything from education to legislation. Chris's blog on Freethoughtblogs.com will eventually accompany a weekly podcast, "This Week in Christian Nationalism," if Chris can ever find the time to launch it. In the meantime, the name of her blog will continue to make no sense. Chris is also the Senior Research Director for the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), but the opinions expressed by her on this blog are her personal opinions, and not necessarily those of MRFF.

Two Years Ago Today, the ‘Least Credible History Book in Print’ was Published

This post is an updated version of my post from this same date last year, which, not surprisingly, was titled “One Year Ago Today, the ‘Least Credible History Book in Print’ was Published.” (I am also once again giving away a free PDF version of one of my books, just like I did last year …

The “Battle of the Billboards” has Begun!

Billboard has a photo of the four presidents on Mount Rushmore, with the text “Air Force Cadets - Are you free to say so help me God” above the picture of Mount Rushmore, and the text “They did” below the photo of Mount Rushmore, and the website of the Restore Military Religious Freedom Coalition at the bottom.

I’ll be updating this later when I get better photos, but here’s the story in a nutshell (accompanied by a crappy photo because it’s the only one I’ve got at the moment). The so-called “Restore Military Religious Freedom Coalition” (a coalition of about two dozen fundamentalist Christian organizations — the FRC, AFA, and a bunch …

The Highly Questionable “Christian Safety Officer”

Photo of Maj. Dowty with caption crossing out Christian fighter pilot and inserting Christian safety officer

In a recent blog post on his “Christian Fighter Pilot” blog, Air Force safety officer Maj. Jonathan C. Dowty (yeah, the Christian “fighter pilot” is actually a safety officer) displayed his crack (as in he must be smoking crack) investigative “skills” in yet another attempt to raise suspicions about the finances of Mikey Weinstein and …

Rep. Fleming: NDAA Religious Freedom Language Not a “Touchdown” — New Talking Points Needed

Back in June, when the House passed its first version of the FY14 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the anti-gay crowd was doing a victory dance over the fact that the House version of the bill included Rep. John Fleming’s (R-LA) so-called “religious freedom” amendment. If passed, the language of the Fleming amendment, the real …
