Jerry Newcombe promotes the idea that America was founded as a Christian nation and should continue to be a Christian nation. His website is called "Jerry Newcombe: For God and Country." During our conversation in 2012 we had our disagreements, but I appreciated his civility. I even chided the powers-that-be at the Right Wing Watch blog for not presenting a full picture of my interaction with Newcombe.
Newcombe and Mark Beliles of the Providence Foundation have a new book out. It is called Doubting Thomas: The Religious Life and Legacy of Thomas Jefferson. I have not read this book, but if the Amazon description is any indication it sounds like something similar to David Barton's discredited The Jefferson Lies. Perhaps Warren Throckmorton and Michael Coulter should look into this.
But I have read Newcombe's latest post at his website. It is titled, "How Is Participating in a National Call for Revival Service 'Controversial'?" Newcombe starts by defending Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindall's recent prayer rally.
Here is a taste:
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal did something supposedly “controversial.” He called for a national revival.
