Joni Lamb on Daystar’s Joni: “If you don’t like Christianity in America, you shouldn’t live here”

On the Election Day edition of Daystar’s Joni, while guest Kelly Shackelford of the Liberty Institute was mentioning the story about a high school valedictorian from Texas who wanted to say a prayer during her graduation speech, Joni Lamb (the show’s host and also the co-host of Celebration with her husband Marcus) made a quote attacking anyone who didn’t conform to her very narrow worldview by stating that “if you don’t like that America is a [conservative] ‘Christian Nation’, then you shouldn’t live here.”

Also at the table was notorious history revisionist liar David Barton, Benita Arterberry, and Cindy Murdock.

Dear Joni, I have some news to break to you: America has NOT been a “Christian Nation” (except demographically), despite what many people of your ilk like to wish it as such.

Right Wing Watch:

During the discussion, Shackelford mentioned a legal fight that took place in Texas last year over a high-school valedictorian who wanted to say a prayer during her graduation speech.  The student ultimately won the right to do so, which prompted host Joni Lamb to declare it a victory for free speech, saying "that if you live in America and you understand that we are a Christian society then you can’t be offended by things like that or you shouldn’t live here."

Pseudo-historian David Barton visited the Christian television program Celebration on the Daystar Television Network with host Jodi Lamb on Monday to discuss his right-wing, pro-GOP view of American history.

Barton, who says that the Founding Fathers like Ben Franklin opposed Net Neutrality, claims he also knows the views of the Founding Fathers in the debate over whether schools should teach Creationism alongside evolution in public schools. Naturally, Barton says that the Founding Fathers “already had the entire debate on creation and evolution,” and sided with Creationism.

While Founding Fathers like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Patrick Henry were all slaveholders, Barton has created his own theory of the cause of the American Revolution: the Founding Fathers’ desire to reject the British Empire’s endorsement of slavery. 

He concluded his talk by saying “I want to see Christians take over the Democrat Party, I want to see Christians take over the Republican Party, I want to have a fight for who has the more Biblical candidate.” Barton, a proponent of Seven Mountains Dominionismcalled on people “to move the most Godly candidate through” both parties.

Actually, Mr. Barton, we do NOT the Democratic Party hijacked by your radical theocratic ideas. Better yet, I think the Constitution Party’s you’re more natural political party.

Last week, Jim Garlow was on Daystar TV’s “Celebration” program to promote his recent book “Miracles Are For Real,” but before the discussion about his book began, Garlow and hosts Marcus and Joni Lamb spent several minutes talking about President Obama’s statement last week in support of marriage equality.

Garlow weighed in, declaring that religious liberty and “the radical homosexual agenda” were on course for a head-on collision in America because “they cannot both exist in the same nation at the same time.”
