"A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes" -- usually attributed to Mark Twain,
but apparently used by someone else first
In the wake of the recent burst of mainstream media attention being given to pseudo-historian David Barton, and my subsequent announcement that I was making a PDF copy of my book available for free, my mailbox has been flooded with emails from people asking if there was a way to make donations to help finance my work. I've been asked this before from time to time, but up until now have resisted taking donations. I don't know why. David Barton and his fellow Christian nationalists have no problem soliciting donations to support their work of rewriting American History. Why shouldn't I let people help me fight these revisionists?
There are several things I plan on doing in the near future that are going to cost money.
First, there are going to be the expenses involved in getting the second volume of Liars For Jesus out. I've once again decided to self-publish. This is the only way I can retain all rights to my work (just like Barton and the other revisionists do by creating their own publishing companies to self-publish their books). Self-publishing is what allows me the freedom to make long excerpts or whole chapters freely available whenever I want to, give others the freedom to liberally copy my work without having to get permission -- or even to wake up one morning and decide to make a download of my whole damn book available for free, as I just did with Volume 1.
Other upcoming projects include making some higher quality videos that can be distributed on DVD, and doing a regular podcast, which I hope to launch this summer.
