David Barton (born January 28, 1954 in Aledo, Texas) is an evangelical Christian political activist and author. He is the founder of WallBuilders, LLC, a Texas-based organization that promotes unorthodox views about the religious basis of the United States. He has been described as a Christian nationalist and "one of the foremost Christian revisionist historians"; much of his work is devoted to advancing the idea, based upon research that many historians and journalists describe as flawed, that the United States was founded as an explicitly Christian nation and that the assertion that the United States Constitution calls for separation of church and state is a "myth."

  • David Barton (* 1954) ist ein US-amerikanischer evangelikaler Prediger, Autor und politischer Aktivist aus Texas. Das Time Magazin rechnete ihn 2005 zu den 25 einflussreichsten Evangelikalen der USA. Er versteht sich als christlich-revisionistischer „Historiker“ und verfolgt die These, die USA seien von den Gründervätern als „christliche Nation“ begründet worden. Die Trennung von Kirche und Staat sei dagegen nicht im Sinne der Verfassung der Vereinigten Staaten. Barton verbreitet seine Ansichten vor allem durch die 1989 gemeinsam mit seiner Frau Cheryl gegründete Vereinigung „WallBuilders“, über die er Publikationen, Videos, CDs, Poster und verschiedene andere Produkte vertreibt. Er hat im Fahrwasser der amerikanischen Tea-Party-Bewegung viel Zuspruch von Vertretern der politischen Rechten der USA erfahren, etwa von Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, Michele Bachmann oder Glenn Beck.
