Liars for Jesus, The Religious Right’s Alternate Version of American History

Welcome to the official MU SASHA blog!

Please join our group on Facebook.
Chris Rodda was so fed up with the religious right’s lies that not only did she write a book in an effort to combat their misinformation, but she also gave it away for free.  She explains in this blog post her decision to do so. It came about after she watched an interview with David Barton on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

After watching the interview online (which you should do as well, it is in three parts) I found out that David Barton seems to have much more influence in education than I would like. Especially because he tries to change history, such as making an almost laughable attempt to explain that while the founding fathers wanted a separation of church and state, they still wanted the church to influence the government, and this also coincides with his wishes.

The best way to protect the education system from deceit  such as this is to keep people informed. Hopefully, it will prevent problems like what we recently saw in Texas, but I doubt it.

You can also still buy the book from amazon if you like it.
