As we'd reported, Glenn Beck kicked off his "Beck University" online lecture series last night, and the first topic was "Faith 101." We signed up for the $9.95/month "university." Last night's class was subtitled "Black-Robed Regiment," and "Professor" and right-wing historian David Barton talked for half an hour about happier times in American history, when clergy were a welcome and influential part of American politics.

The lecture, which was followed by an interactive Q&A session, had only a short intermission -- cartoon Glenn Beck showed up to give viewers a pop quiz on Barton's class. But don't worry, cartoon Beck assured us. Pop quizzes were never his thing either.

So what did Barton talk about? As Beck said in his introduction, our nation's idea of the separation of church and state is "not what you've been sold."
