Dispatches from the Creation Wars

David Barton’s Christmas Card

The Nashville Scene has pictures of the Christmas card sent out this year by Wallbuilders, David Barton’s group of Christian nationalists. It’s covered, predictably, with statements like “In God we trust” and “One Nation Under God” and with quotes about Christianity from various obscure founding fathers.

In the name of Gordon Klingenschmitt, Amen.
