GBTV description: On Thursday’s episode of “Glenn Beck”, Glenn invited his friend David Barton, a historian and author, to come onto his show and defend himself from accusations that are coming from a group of academics and theologians. While Barton has frequently come under fire from the left, these attacks are actually coming from people on the right. Glenn and Barton reviewed many of these attacks and accusations, and you can watch the exchanges in the videos below from tonight’s show.
Billy Hallowell has also done extensive coverage on this story for TheBlaze in two articles: Exclusive: Historian David Barton Responds to Critics Amid ‘Jefferson Lies’ Book Controversy; and David Barton vs. His Critics: TheBlaze’s Extensive Analysis of Their Claims & Thomas Jefferson’s Faith.
UPDATE: August 17. Needless to say, I am shocked that Thomas Nelson Publishers has censored the work of David Barton by pulling his recent book, The Jefferson Lies, from bookstores. Several weeks ago I was in my local Barnes & Noble and saw Barton's book but decided not to buy it that day because I was considering getting the audiobook sometime in the future. Now, both choices have been taken from me. But wait... I just ordered the hardback book from David Barton's website. Evidently, you can only get this book from him, now. I specifically ordered it because of the publisher's censorship. This should never have happened in this country! If you want to stand up for free speech, click here to order Barton's book. - Reggie
