So you still don’t believe the Christian right wants to take over America and rip up the Constitution? Well, David Barton of Wallbuilders has a message for you. In one of his “Building on the American Heritage Series” videos uncovered by Right Wing Watch, Barton says that he doesn’t care if the Supreme Court rules in favor of homosexuality, it’s still illegal because God’s law is the supreme law of the land and supercedes Supreme Court rulings.
Here’s the video:
In other words, if the Bible has a verse that conservatives interpret to be contradictory of Supreme Court rulings, David Barton says the Supreme Court decision is invalid. This is why the Christian right is such a threat to the Constitution and our system of government and why it’s so important that we have separation of church and state in this country. If Barton had his way, Supreme Court decisions that rule in favor of abortion rights, gay rights, and many other rulings would be reversed by Biblical decree. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that the Bible overrules the Supreme Court. Barton’s video is just more proof of how much the Christian Right hates the Constitution and our system of government.
