Glenn Beck spreading Christian nationalist lies to advance theocratic agenda

It shouldn't come as any surprise, since Beck has teamed up with infamous Christian nationalist liar for Jesus David Barton as part of his cultish sounding plan to create a 100 year map to save America from the "progressive" bogeyman, that Beck peddles fabricated history, but it is still infuriating to witness it in action.

On Friday's program Beck asserted that George Washington claimed, "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."

This is a popular bogus Christian nationalist quote.

The US Library Of Congress has a massive collection of Washington documents that can be searched by word or phrase. Here's the description of that collection:

The complete George Washington Papers collection from the Manuscript Division at the Library of Congress consists of approximately 65,000 documents. This is the largest collection of original Washington documents in the world. Document types in the collection as a whole include correspondence, letterbooks, commonplace books, diaries, journals, financial account books, military records, reports, and notes accumulated by Washington from 1741 through 1799.
A search on the alleged Washington quote, and phrases from within the quote, produces no results.
Here's a favorite George Washington 'quote' of mine: "Glenn Beck is an intellectually dishonest loony toon character who shouldn't be taken seriously by anyone."
