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.

To Swear or Not to Swear: The Founders’ Original Intent for Military Oaths

Six years ago, when I first started working as a researcher for the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), I assumed that the work I’d been doing debunking lies about American history and my research for my new “day job” at MRFF would be two completely separate things — an assumption that couldn’t have been more …

There is a recently-formed coalition of anti-gay Christian organizations calling itself the “Restore Military Religious Freedom Coalition.” The primary mission of this so-called “religious freedom” coalition is to protect the “right” of anti-gay Christians in the military to continue to discriminate against …

Debunking David Barton’s Jefferson Lies (because they still need to be debunked)

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve seen a number of articles about pseudo-historian David Barton’s “comeback.” My first thought upon seeing these articles was “what comeback?” You have to go away to have a comeback, and Barton has never gone away.
