In AMERICA'S GODLY HERITAGE, David Barton contends that the United States of America was founded by evangelical Christians as a fundamentally, uniquely Christian nation. Although this is not exactly the slickest production of the year, AMERICA'S GODLY HERITAGE is still perhaps the most important video release in many years.
If you were educated in a public school or state college or university in the last 50 years, it is certain that you were taught that the founders of the United States were atheists, agnostics and deists who opposed the presence of religious principles in government. David Barton blows this nonsense away with AMERICA’S GODLY HERITAGE. David Barton’s thesis is that the United States of America was founded by evangelical Christians as a fundamentally, uniquely Christian nation. He establishes his case first with quotes that reveal clearly the beliefs of the Founders concerning the proper relationship of religion to government, then by tracing the decline of America’s moral climate since the arbitrary separation of Christian principles and government in 1962.
Although this is not exactly the slickest production of the year (David Barton’s delivery is rather stiff, and the lecture-plus-paintings format requires that the facts carry the viewer’s interest rather than action), it is still perhaps the most important video release in many years. AMERICA’S GODLY HERITAGE should be required viewing for Christian Americans, especially school age, who have been so long deprived of the truth about their heritage. AMERICA’S GODLY HERITAGE asserts that the witness of history is clearly on the side of the Christian statesman, and that now more than ever we are called to take back what has been stolen, obscured, and neglected. Thanks to David Barton, the record can be set straight.
