I don't really care who's paying for it. If a place is going to present itself as a museum and be located among the city's premier historical assets. It should have an obligation to present fact based information. Let thenm build their museum, but they should be held to a reasonable standard of historical accuracy.
For some here to claim I'm bigoted or intolerant for pointing out basic factual inaccuracies is absurd and offensive. Sorry but the Declaration of Independence had a primary author who wasn't even Christian and neither document was heavily influenced by the Bible. This isn't a matter for debate, we have plenty of first hand sources describing what actually influenced them!
Bottom line, I really don't think Washington DC would let an institution pop up by the mall amongst the Smithsonians if they were aiming to spread misinformation. That's the last thing I'll say on the topic.
