The group Americans United for Separation of Church and State has criticized Heritage Academy, a charter school in Arizona, for using Cleon Skousen’s The 5000 Year Leapin a 12th-grade history class. The group said that the book promotes “Christian nation propaganda” as well as claims slavery was beneficial to African Americans.

Beck, who has promoted The 5000 Year Leap, insisted there was nothing wrong with the book. He said he was “doubling down” on his support for it.
