  •  He only exists to tell RW what they want to hear. (0+ / 0-)

    His dishonesty is well known.  There is a book on him called "Liar for Jesus"  I did a Spring 2011 diary on him.  I only found one honest quote is his writings, that was from the first Supreme Court Justice John Jay who later became governor of NY and tried to ban Catholics.  Not exactly a suporter of the founders view of religious freedom.  The man is absolutely shameless about his manipulation of text.

    Never promote men who seek after a state-established religion; it is spiritual tyranny--the worst of despotism. It is turnpiking the way to heaven by human law, in order to establish ministerial gates to collect toll. John Leland
