Metaxas Plagiarized David Barton…

Which makes sense, since both are utterly incompetent ‘historians’.

Even though Eric Metaxas didn’t footnote him, he said on his radio show today that he used David Barton’s work to help him with history for his new book, If You Can Keep It. He lauded Barton’s historical work as helping him understand the Christian foundations of the nation.

This explains a lot, including his smug reaction to actual historians who have exposed the problems in his new book. Barton didn’t spend much time trying to defend errors until his brand was threatened. Now that WorldNetDaily Press has republished his book The Jefferson Lies, Barton accuses his critics, including evangelical scholars, of being liberals.
