Over two hundred years later David Barton appeared in the U.S. Capitol building and tells a story about George Washington that has been proven over and over again to be false. At what point do we call Barton a "deceiver" or a "liar?"
Here is the section from my Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? A Historical Introduction on the famous painting of Washington praying in the snow at Valley Forge.
Actually, Barton could have made a pretty good case that Washington was a "man of prayer" without the Isaac Potts--Valley Forge story, but he once again chose sensationalism over evidence.
Is it time to gather Christian historians together to sign some kind of formal statement condemning Barton's brand of propaganda and hagiography?
