Who does President Barack Obama think he is that he can change the wording of the Declaration of Independence? Again and again he presumes to quote the great Declaration while making a significant change: he omits the word “Creator.”
Americans know that the Declaration of Independence proclaims as a matter of fact that they “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” But when Obama recites this line, he omits the word “Creator.”
Listen carefully to how Obama censors that famous line. Here are his own words: “all men are created equal, that each of us are endowed with certain inalienable rights.” He doesn’t say who endowed us.
Obama has done this so often that it can’t be a slip of the tongue or a glitch of the teleprompter. Changing the words of the Declaration of Independence is part of Obama’s determination to remove everything religious and every mention of God from every aspect of our public life in order to fundamentally transform us from “one nation under God” into one nation under the Federal Government, especially the executive branch, with no higher power recognized.
On this Fourth of July, we should remind ourselves that the great Declaration of Independence is not only the proclamation of our independence and sovereignty, but is also the official affirmation of our belief and faith in God. The Declaration asserts God’s existence as a “self-evident” truth, and states that the purpose of government is to secure our God-given unalienable individual rights.
The Declaration contains five references to God — God as our Creator, God as supreme Lawmaker, God as the Source of all rights, God as the world’s supreme Judge, and God as our Protector.
Shortly before we started hearing fireworks for this year’s Fourth of July, the movie “For Greater Glory” opened in local theaters. It is a compelling dramatization of the Mexican government’s persecution of Christians from 1926 to 1929, a bloody piece of history that has hitherto been ignored by historians and filmmakers.
First off, Phyllis Schlafly, really? I'll get back to her.
Yes, Phyllis Schlafly really! She's doing a great job revealing Obama's war on religious freedom, that is if the religion is Christianity. He is very accommodating to Islam as well as Secular and Atheistic Humanism...the emerging "one world" religion.
This LIE Schlafly propagates that "through speeches and regulations, President Obama is trying to eliminate all public references to religion," is easily proven false. Obama mentions God in every speech he gives, and there has been no regulation by Obama that eliminates "all references to religion." How do we know this? Because most of us have TV, and access to the internet, and there's this thing called video, which records what people say, and practically everything the President says is recorded and/or broadcast live, so we know what Schlafly claims is one big fat lie.
Schlafly is telling the truth which Obama-loving Liberals often find hard to hear. It's true, through speeches and regulations, Obama IS INDEED trying to eliminate all public references to religion (Almighty God).
As far as speeches....
RE: the highlighted. This is you not being truthful. Obama DOES NOT mention God in every speech....and that's exactly Schlafly's point. Obama censored God out of his speech and it's not the first time he did that. Go back to my reply #29 and click on the word "Listen" at the beginning of the paragraph.
The truth that Obama censors God from the Declaration is right there...we know that through "this thing called video, which records what people say".
In 2010, when speaking in Indonesia about our national motto, Obama didn't say the words, "In God we trust" but instead substituted "E Pluribus Unum".
Before giving a speech at Georgetown, he had his advance team drape over any religious symbols that might appear as a backdrop where he was going to speak. Obama made sure the IHS symbol, a monogram of the name Jesus Christ was not in sight.
And then there are Obama's 2011 and 2012 Thanksgiving addresses. George Washington advised Americans to set aside a day of public thanksgiving to God for the great favors He has bestowed on our Nation and the long series of presidents all made mention of God, but not Obama.
As far as regulations...
Without doubt, Obama enthusiasm for abortions and even supporting selective infanticide is the most radical yet.
That would be Obamacare and its implementation of the Health and Human Services mandate forcing Catholic institutions to pay for abortion-producing drugs, contraception and sterilization which is imo, unconstitutional because it abridges Catholic's freedom of speech and interferes with the free exercise of religion.
As he promised in his 2008 campaign, Obama wants to "fundamentally transform" America, and the mandate plays into Obama's war on Religious freedom.
To "fundamentally transform" America from it's Judaic/Christian ethic and standards of morality as depicted by the Ten Commandments, he must violate or ignore the Founding documents.
So it's not surprising that those Christians who "cling to their guns and religion" get in his way.
