Constitution is STILL a secular document, says a Christian

NPR has a story out about a Christian man who believes the Constitution is a biblical document, or at least very laced with biblical quotations:
For example, you've been taught the Constitution is a secular document. Not so, says Barton: The Constitution is laced with biblical quotations.

"You look at Article 3, Section 1, the treason clause," he told James Robison on Trinity Broadcast Network. "Direct quote out of the Bible. You look at Article 2, the quote on the president has to be a native born? That is Deuteronomy 17:15, verbatim. I mean, it drives the secularists nuts because the Bible's all over it! Now we as Christians don't tend to recognize that. We think it's a secular document; we've bought into their lies. It's not."
I highly disagree, and I think he's fighting wrong battle.

But I won't say why.

Watch this, read this, thisthis, and then this WHOPPER. There.
