David Barton of Wallbuilders to preach to the pastors for smirk (GOP)

Wallbuilders?

http://www.registerguard.com/cgi-bin/printStory.py?name...

The Republican National Committee is bringing a religious conservative lecturer to Eugene on Tuesday for a speech to area pastors about their rights and responsibilities in political activity and Christianity's role in America's founding.

The speaker, David Barton, is the head of a group called Wallbuilders and the second-highest ranking GOP official in President Bush's home state of Texas.

Barton's keynote address at noon Tuesday at Eugene's Willamette Christian Center was scheduled after a staffer with the Republican National Committee contacted Oregon religious leaders to solicit interest in having Barton appear there, said Steve Buss, a member of the Eugene church's ministry staff.

Buss said his church agreed to host Barton after RNC staffer Drew Ryan assured him that the appearance "is not discussing a partisan agenda. It's not promoting any candidate."

LOL

catch this:

"The event has been closed to the news media."

poor Steve Buss was snuckered

1. Tax the fucker
A former philosophy professor (and a Baptist minister!) spent a day in class ripping apart Barton and his acid dream that America was founded as a "Christian" nation (ie theocracy).
