In an e-mail to WallBuilders supporters today, David Barton calls last week’s elections a victory for “especially for God-fearing conservatives.” Apparently, everybody else is God-hating. Always remember: if you oppose them, they won’t just attack your politics. They will attack your faith.
UPDATE: And now we see a press release in which the Family Research Council says it is trying to gather 1 million Americans to pray for U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, the Republican tea party champion from South Carolina. From Tony Perkins, Family Research Council’s president:
“We want the men and women from both parties to know that an attack on Sen. DeMint is an attack on all conservatives and people of faith.”
Why? Is Sen. DeMint the Messiah? The arrogance would be astonishing if it weren’t so typical.
