This is the fifty-third installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is s a clip taken from a sermon preached by theocrat David Barton.

    I clearly remember being taught about Jesus saying to render unto ceaser what is ceasers and also that to follow him one needed to sell all of their posessions and give the proceeds to the poor or something like that. Doesn’t matter to Barton though, he’s probably about as good of a bible scholar as he is a “historian”. ?

    I don’t think jesus would have given 2 shits about the minimum wage in America in 2016. He thought the world would end in the 1st century.

    But where does jesus suposidly have a whole teaching on the minimum wage?? I must have missed that passage along with the one where jesus says vote republican and guns are great.

    Im searching for words to describe making pronouncements about what God or Jesus wants. It’s arrogant and preposterous. One could feel sorry for such people but I tend to feel personally offended if that dishonest nonsense is directed at me.

    I can’t believe that anyone could STILL take David Barton seriously. He’s been debunked a few times over the years. He even said once,that it was a good thing for the Indians to be wiped out by Europeans because the Indians used torture. Well, in those days, everyone was doing it. That doesn’t make it right. As most people know, the British used those methods,too. Especially for executions.( Tower of London). I wish someone would tell Barton to just put a sock in it !
