Georgia State Senator Barry Loudermilk is running for Congress from Georgia’s 11th congressional district. Today on Twitter he announced that David Barton has endorsed his candidacy.
On Loudermilk’s website, he has this to say about Barton:
There is no greater expert on the U.S. Constitution and the underpinnings of American government, than David Barton
Wow, no greater expert?
In addition to academia in general, scores of Christian professors would disagree with that assessment. As regular readers know, the Family Research Council removed from view a video of Barton on the “underpinnings of American government” due to historical errors.
Loudermilk has a record of supporting the Christian nation thesis and has spoken at least one Christian reconstructionist event in the past and has cited Barton previously.
