Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Jon Rowe debunks yet another Christian Nation myth in this essay at Positive Liberty. The myth is that George Washington handed out copies of the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut at the Constitutional Convention. Religious right apologist Peter Marshall, who may actually be worse than David Barton, claims that Washington did so “because it was so powerfully done, so rooted in Holy Scripture, in the Word of God, such an effective document, [that] Washington wanted that to be a reference work for the federal Constitution work they were about to get into.” This, of course, is utter nonsense. Read Jon’s post to find out why.
