Texas Curriculum Specialist Wants to "Seperate the Institutions, But Not the Influence" of Church and State

Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart interviewed the former vice chairman, David Barton, of the Texas Republican Party and current State Board of Education history and social studies curriculum expert, who is one of the nation's leading advocates for the position that separation of church and state is not what the Founders intended. He is not a historian.

Barton calls what he does "historical reclamation".

"It seems you are rewriting, more than reclaiming history," says Stewart.
