Couldn't happen to a nicer pseudo-historian

David Barton (Dolt) gets his critically-mauled "Thomas Jefferson was an orthrodox fundamentalist evangelical Christian" book pulled by its publisher.  A shame they didn't do a bit of fact-checking before they published.

The name of Barton's "organization" is WallBuilders. That's its name. WallBuilders. 
 
Yes.  Though they have a justification of the name:

In the Old Testament book of Nehemiah, the nation of Israel rallied together in a grassroots movement to help rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and thus restore stability, safety, and a promising future to that great city. We have chosen this historical concept of "rebuilding the walls" to represent allegorically the call for citizen involvement in rebuilding our nation's foundations. As Psalm 11:3 reminds us, "If the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do?"

Still, irony abounds.
 
I will be interested to see if my ex-friend from college doubles down on recommending Barton to his congregation, or actually admits that Barton's books are garbage.
 
I suspect not.  "Evil secularists and tools of Satan forced them to drop Dr. Barton's book.  Fortunately, he was able to self-publish ..."
