    We need to say with the format where the moderator reminds the group he/she needs to raise their hands to be up on the list.

    The Christian Right’s Lies About History

    Joe McCarthy was a good guy. A new and extremely toxic myth is beginning to percolate in on the Christian right: Insisting that Sen. Joseph McCarthy, a paranoid alcoholic who saw communist subversives in every corner, was actually an upstanding guy fighting for God and country.
    The new information from Russian and American espionage archives does not vindicate McCarthy.
    --------------------
    That idea that the Founders Fathers of America were fundamentalist Christians who were quite like the ones we have today.
    David Barton, a revisionist historian, quoted John Adams as having said, “There is no authority, civil or religious — there can be no legitimate government — but what is administered by this Holy Ghost.” The truth is, Adams was summarizing the opinion of his opponents. That wasn't Adams’ view at all. Barton portrays Thomas Jefferson as a “conventional Christian” who wanted a religious government.

      Every bad thing that happens is blamed on God removing his hedge of protection from the U.S. to punish us for turning our back on God in recent decades.

      A popular theory on the right is that the Roman Empire collapsed because growing decadence and liberalism caused people to be too busy screwing to govern, started having a bunch of sex.
      Romans were pretty uptight. The rumors that they turned all perverted and debauched were made up by Christians trying to smear pagan culture. Rome didn’t really fall in the sense the Christian pundits mean, anyway. It was more a gradual decline of centralized power.

      Rick Santorum floated the theory that the French revolutionaries were bad (unlike the American revolutionaries) because they believed that rights and democracy stem from the social contract, instead of being handed down from God.
      In reality, the arguments of French and American revolutionaries are nearly identical, echoing philosophers like John Locke who were trying to construct an ideal of rights and freedoms that is frankly secularist in nature.
