My Thoughts on David Barton*

First, I want to say what I am going to post is my opinion nothing else. For those who don't know who David Barton is, he is the Founder and President of the Wallbuilders, he is anti-gay and against religious freedom for those who are not Christian. Here is one of his quotes:
The true historic meaning of “religion” excludes paganism and witchcraft, and thus, does not compel a conclusion that McCollum has state taxpayer standing … paganism and witchcraft were never intended to receive the protections of the Religion Clauses. Thus, in the present case there can be no violation of those clauses … Should this Court conclude that McCollum has taxpayer standing … this Court should at least acknowledge that its conclusion is compelled by Supreme Court precedent, not by history or the intent of the Framers.”

He is a real piece of work, but you know what bothers me the most is that he seems to be the puppet master behind others running in politics. Michael Huckabee- Arkansas Governor is a strong supporter and Kimberly Daniels who is running in Florida is another one, not to mention Michelle Bachmann who is gaining popularity as the Christian Conservative to beat for the chance to be on the ticket to run for President. All of these people and many, many more want to streamline people and life. Who are they to tell us what to believe and who are they to tell people they are damned for being LGBT? I don't care what they do in their bedrooms or what Faith they choose to follow...so why does what the rest of us do matter so much to them? I think David Barton wants to shape the world in his image and deny those who do not agree. Well you know that mold is to confining for me, I want freedom and I want all of us to be accepted for who we are and what be bring to the world. People are People...if you are an awesome person your an awesome person..if your a prick well then your prick...I don't care if you gay or Christian, rich, or Republican...those things mean nothing to me if you are honest, and tolerant and open.  These ideals will not only affect Pagans, but all Faiths and lifestyle backgrounds...Do you want someone telling how to live and how to be? Tolerance is a concept I live by, but don't mistake me for weak, I will not give up my ideals or freedom to fit in some nice and tidy package of wholesome subterfuge.

  1. Well said! And I completely agree with you. There is absolutely too much intolerance in this world and it seems to grow by leaps and bounds on a daily basis.
