Chris Rodda is awesome.
This installment of my series debunking the American history lies told on Glenn Beck is about a study published in 1984 in The American Political Science Review, and how that study is misrepresented to make it appear that our founding documents were based on the Bible, especially the Book of Deuteronomy.
You’ll have to read the rest here…
I found it interesting that the Federalists (you know, Washington, Adams, etc…) use the bible quite infrequently, but beyond that, once people step back away from their perception of history, one will see that when the bible was used it was used as other forms of literature. Many of the men, especially the leading men, of the Revolution were Enlightened Deists. Why is it so difficult to see and then understand that?
