Customer Reviews

David Barton is an excellent writer.
Terry
David Barton does a fantastic job of explaining where the concept of the separation of Church and State came from.
Kurt Smith
Rather than let the facts lead to the conclusion, the conclusion is driving the facts.

*** Please read note FIRST at the bottom of this review ***

I am a big fan of David Barton's work. I think it is obvious for anyone who has read American history honestly (and is not on the ACLU's payroll) that Barton is correct about God's central role in America's founding, and foundation. However (and maybe I am not seeing something correctly) but, Separation of Church & State p.6 has three quotes that Mr. Barton uses that do not seem to match the official "Journal of the Senate" records from the same date referenced in his book for September 3, 1789.

Example #1: Mr. Barton's quote: "Congress shall not make any law establishing any religious denomination." The Journal of the Senate's first version of the amendment states that Congress should not support any "one religious sect or society in preference to others."

Example #2 Mr. Barton's quote: "Congress shall make no law establishing any particular denomination." The Journal of the Senate states" Congress shall not make any law infringing the rights conscience, or establishing any religious sect or society."

It doesn't change his very valid points, but it is very important to me (especially considering what's at stake) that original sources are quoted accurately. If I am wrong in my amateur research please show me I will immediately apologize and change this post. I have included the link to The Journal of the Senate date in question. [...]

*** PLEASE NOTE *** after two years someone was able to show that Mr. Barton was indeed correct in using the quotes he did in this book. Barton's research WAS NOT "off" as I first asserted. I am sorry that I made this mistake, it was an honest one.

David Barton is the authoritative source on Christianity in our government. Visit his website wallbuilders dot com. I use his other book more: "America's Godly Heritage" all the time. The bibliography alone is quite thorough and leads the reader to examine the minutes from the Continental Congress and the First Congress of the United States.

Format: Paperback
Among the many controversial issues in America, one in particular has been discussed and reviewed since this nation was founded. That issue can be defined with the phrase, separation of church and state. For years founding documents have been analyzed and strong opposing views have formed concerning the separation of church and state. As one formulates an opinion of his or her own, one should keep in mind what this phrase was created to mean and the roots it now has today. Modern’s view of separation of church and state prohibits the social benefits influenced by religion, discourages true morality, and distorts the founders intent found in the constitution.
The founding fathers clearly understood the benefit in religion influencing society and wanted to preserve these freedoms. Society is affected by the values it upholds and encourages. One example of how religious influences are excluded in America’s public that in turn causes harmful social habits is sexual relations. After court ruling in the 1960s against public relious influences, teen pregnancies rose above 700%, sexually transmitted diseases increased, and sexual activity in general expanded. (Barton) Proposals were created to teach abstinence in schools yet were shut down due to the arguments that teaching abstinence relates to religion and is contrary to separation of church and state. Instead, schools teach kids to have safe sex. Basically giving young maturing adults the freedom to choose what they do sexually. However, few or none of the consequences are mentioned when discussing the freedoms of sex. Teen pregnancies do have an affect on society, even the economy. Eighty percent of teen mother have resulted to welfare and many end up in poverty.
