I AM SO SHOCKED!

“Historical Researcher and Author” David Barton recently had a book released by publisher Thomas Nelson.  It is called the Jefferson Lies:Exposing the Myths You’ve Always Believed About Thomas Jefferson.

It appears, and I am totally stunned to find this out…but apparently?  He fibbed more than once in the book.

So Thomas Nelson has recalled it for falsehoods.

Oops.

  1. Oh good grief. Jefferson obviously wasn’t a saint, none of the founding fathers were…but I don’t think that anyone would debate that he wasn’t a genius in any number of ways.

    As a history major, I relish the debunking of myths. But I detest the telling of lies…and worse, deliberately distorting the truth.

    • Oh, Barton was busting “myths” like the idea that Jefferson was any kind of secularist or believed in a separation of state. He thinks Jefferson was great…but pro church in politics.
