Barton's bunk . . .
Notorious pseudo-historian and far-right Christian conservative, David Barton, battles on the historical-revisionism front of the American culture wars. No credentials in history or law. Any hope of credibility is shredded by the fact that "tears-of-a-clown" Glenn Beck wrote the foreword, a detail curiously omitted from the BiblioCommons record despite his name clearly on the cover.
