At least he's being honest this time with a few words from me after the Right Wing Watch report.
On yesterday's broadcast of "Wall-builders Live," David Barton and Rick Green were discussing a column by right-wing blogger John Hawkins titled "5 Ways Liberalism Destroys Virtue" and it prompted Barton to lay out a rambling and rather incoherent theory about how hate is a virtue while tolerance is a sin, eventually culminating in the declaration that Christians have got to be "intolerant of liberalism":
I wrote this down recently and I'm thinking about it as a name for a book; if not the name for a book, this is definitely something that we have to at least get in our thinking. So let me throw out the thought that I had here, this is just throwing out the title for a book:When tolerance is a sin and hate is a virtue.
I throw that out because we're getting to the point where tolerance is a bad thing and hate is a good thing. And let me define that: we're told in, I believe it's Proverbs 4:13, it says "the fear of the Lord is to hate evil." Which means that if I'm going to stand for what God stands for, there's some certain things I have to hate: I have to hate evil, I have to hate murder - well no, you can't hate, that's a bad thing ... No, hate is a good thing!
I mean hating Nazis, that's a good thing. And people say "well, you hate their philosophy, you don't hate the people." No, I hate people who want to kill other people and I'm sorry that they're killing others but the guys who were on the Nazi trials at the end, I'm sorry, I just hate what they did. Alright, I love them as a person, yes Jesus died for them, I understand, but I hate certain things.
So we've got to get to the point where tolerance is seen as a sin because we're tolerating a lot stuff that destroys our families, that destroys our own character and we can't tolerate that stuff. We have to get back to the point where hate is a virtue, at least certain kinds of hate. The fear of the Lord is to hate evil and we need to have a hatred of things and get off this fence about having no passion about anything. You know, I tolerate anything, I'm not going to have a passion good or bad, I'm not going to hate anything ... We just can't do that and we've got to get back to that same type of intolerance, that we're going to be intolerant of liberalism. (bold/color by me)
Now my comments. And please share, unlike Mr.Barton I think sharing and caring to be "a good thing" you decide!
Looks like pseudo-historian or blow-hard revisionist history "man of god" whatever you prefer, has joined the "Westboro Baptist Church" of Topeka, KS. His statement that "certain" types of hate should be considered a virtue is the most honest thing that spews out of his mouth. His take on the history of this country and its so-called "Christian Heritage" has more holes and lies than a cow pasture has cow pies.The people in his camp are being lied to, but he is telling the "truth" in how he feels about others. If people really buy into his bile and longing for a Dominionist paradise (seven mountains theory) where his version of the past is truly the way he thinks this country should be "ruled" his version would be a disaster for those with different interpretations of the "all mighty."Listen to this, well I'll say it, LIAR and his dominionists followers at your own peril/downfall. Keep the church in the church, and the government separate, for Zeus' sake! It's all about the money he could make off another book of LIES!!
Thanks for reading.
