Ask Him about the Nazis, David

by TFN

David Barton, head of the Texas-based, Christian-right group WallBuilders, has an interesting guest for his Internet talk show this week. Barton will talk to Brad Dacus, head of the anti-gay Pacific Justice Institute in California. Dacus was a prominent support of Proposition 8, which in 2008 took away the right of gay and lesbian Californians to marry their partners.

So expect a dose of anti-gay extremism on Tuesday’s WallBuilders program. But will Barton ask Dacus whether he still believes that failing to oppose same-sex marriage would be like the failure to stop Adolf Hitler in the 1930s? Maybe Barton has some insight on that question, too, considering that he (Barton) appears to haveĀ spoken before neo-Nazi groups himself in the past.

Once again, why did the Texas State Board of Education put Barton on a panel of so-called “experts” helping revise social studies standards for Texas public school?
