Overview

Debunking David Barton's Jefferson Lies: #2 - Jefferson Founded a Secular University by Chris Rodda

In his book The Jefferson Lies, Christian nationalist pseudo-historian David Barton professes to correct what he claims are seven lies about Thomas Jefferson, in chapters titled:

Lie #1: Thomas Jefferson Fathered Sally Hemings’ Children

Lie #2: Thomas Jefferson Founded a Secular University

Lie #3: Thomas Jefferson Wrote His Own Bible and Edited Out the Things He Didn’t Agree With

Lie #4: Thomas Jefferson Was a Racist Who Opposed Equality for Black Americans

Lie #5: Thomas Jefferson Advocated a Secular Public Square through the Separation of Church and State

Lie #6: Thomas Jefferson Detested the Clergy

Lie #7: Thomas Jefferson Was an Atheist and Not a Christian

It is David Barton, however, who is doing the lying, and not those whom he accuses of being the revisionists. Through a series of seven short books, one devoted to each of Barton’s seven Jefferson lies, the real liar will be revealed, and the real Thomas Jefferson will be preserved.

This volume debunks the many lies and misrepresentations used by Barton in the chapter of his book titled "Lie #2: Thomas Jefferson Founded a Secular University."

Thomas Jefferson, not a Christian? Then why (from the original 1848 version of: The Lives of the Signers, written by B.J.Lossing) would he distinctly say, upon his deathbed, "I resign myself to my God, and my child to my country"? Also, he signed his documents with "In the year of our Lord". David Barton is not the only historian or author to have spoken very highly of this man's goodly moral character.

This author has longstanding personal issues against Christianity. He deliberately swerves his writing off the road leading the reader on a path paved with nothing but the author's ideology and personal animosity towards Christianity. His credibility (if he ever had any) is stretched beyond belief. It would only be polite to call it fiction instead of an out-N-out lie.

Chris Rodda has her own agenda of writing anything that might discredit the reality of the religiosity of American Founders and their conviction that God rules in the lives of nations, that a Day of Judgment awaits everyone, and that their specific construction of our Constitution was based on Judeo/Christian principles. Forget Rodda, just read the Founders - it's all there!!

Excellent takedown of David Barton's appalling attempt to make Thomas Jefferson into a fanatic Christian, just like him. Barton and his followers should be ashamed of themselves.
