Part I The Origin of Liberty
The United States became a nation through a grand self-declaration of independence on July 4, 1776. The American colonialists-turned-revolutionaries fought a valiant and victorious battle against Great Britain to back up the audacious claim made in their Declaration of Independence. In 1788 the Constitution of the United States was ratified. A new nation was born that would stand as the bastion of liberty for centuries to come because of its religious influence.
Ironically, many citizens of this very same nation today writhe at the suggestion that religion is, or could be, responsible for the political innovation of the United States. Moreover, these same individuals consistently seek legal injunctions against those who make even a faint religious overture in connection with anything vaguely resembling a government institution. They do so presumably because their atheistic sensibilities feel threatened. More likely, it is their vile contempt for opposing views compounded by their inability to make coherent arguments against Christian apologists that has caused them to resort to their own religious censorship as a last resort. The irony is the liberty they claim to defend through religious persecution could not exist without the religion they are persecuting the Judeo-Christian religion, specifically.
Perhaps my claim strikes you as bold, unfounded, or if youre a member of the ACLUs Facebook fan page blatantly uninformed. However, my proof would be insultingly obvious to any self-respecting American were it not swept under the rug of revisionist history and political correctness. I suspect there are very few American citizens that have read the Declaration of Independence, but this is my starting point; its no coincidence as this is also the starting point of our great nation.

I chose not to post the entirety of my article here because of its length. Moreover, I dedicated a great deal of time to researching and writing it and prefer to maintain the copyright.
So you’re a blogpimp trolling for hits.
It’s also recommended that if you are copying, pasting and then excerpting an article which you have written yourself, its best to post your entire blog article rather than just a brief excerpt as you posted today.
