Quote of the Day

“Wouldn’t it be interesting to do a study between those that are on welfare and see how much and how often they read the Bible.  You know, if Booker T. Washington is right that Christianity and reading the Bible increases your desires and therefore your ability for hard work; if we take that as an axiom, does that mean that the people who are getting government assistance spend nearly no time in the Bible, therefore have no desire, and therefore no ability for hard work?  I could go a lot of places with this.  I would love to see this proven out in some kind of sociological study, but it makes perfect sense.”

– David Barton, about a supposed connection linking welfare to failure to read the Bible.

Barton sits on the Texas State Board of Education as an alleged “expert” for the state’s social studies curriculum.  That’s like saying Rick Santorum is an expert on birth control.

  1. Am I allowed to say Barton is an idiot? If not please feel free to delete my comment, otherwise; Barton is an idiot.
