Obama censors the Declaration of Independence
LifeSite News ^ | July 4, 2012 | PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY

Posted on 07/04/2012 6:08:22 PM PDT by rhema

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.

This wasn’t in some faraway Muslim country; it was in our next-door neighbor. It’s instructive for Americans, who have peacefully enjoyed religious liberty for more than two centuries, to realize the depth of hatred that some people have for religion in general and Christianity in particular.

The movie is a worthy addition to the genre of successful religious films that portray Christian heroes who died for their faith, such as “A Man For All Seasons” (Thomas More), “Becket,” and “The Robe.”

In 1926, the Mexican president, Plutarco Elias Calles, brutally enforced laws to suppress religion. Soldiers on horseback broke into churches, vandalized church property, killed priests, and strung up dead bodies on posts to terrify the people.

Government officials, an elite openly admiring Soviet Communism, were determined to destroy all visible evidences of religion, including the cross and other Christian symbols, the wearing of traditional garments by Catholic priests and nuns, and religious processions. Soldiers could order anyone to repeat “Long live the Federal Government,” with death the punishment for refusal.

Mexico’s Constitution required the schools to be active participants in the battle to secularize the country and suppress religion. The Constitution stated: “Education services should be secular, and, therefore, free of any religious orientation.”

About 90,000 Mexicans died in the fighting that ensued as the Christians, calling themselves Cristeros, resisted bravely. They got little or no help from the Vatican, but eventually, in 2000, Pope John Paul II canonized 25 Cristero saints and martyrs. The U.S. government apparently was interested only in protecting its oil interests.

Our first reaction to the killings in this movie is “of course, this can’t happen here.” The bloody part may be improbable in the United States, but the contempt for religion here is already evident.

It’s not difficult to imagine the hateful words of the Mexican President being repeated in the United States by the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and various atheist litigators who are aggressively pushing supremacist judges to ban the Ten Commandments, our national motto, and crosses from schools and from every public place even when their purpose is to honor servicemen who gave their lives on our behalf.

Through speeches and regulations, President Obama is trying to eliminate all public references to religion, to force religious worship behind closed doors, and to coerce religious institutions into financing drugs and procedures that violate their religious faith. ObamaCare will force Christian hospitals, colleges and schools to pay for abortifacients, contraceptives and sterilizations for their employees.

If they don’t obey Obama’s orders, the penalty is financial death. It’s no wonder that Obama campaigned as a messiah in 2008 saying, “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

Obama is his own god. He has no use for the God of the universe. Unless he repents his eternal state will not be a good one.

What does anyone expect from a FASCIST, Neo-Commie, Scumbag, Isalmic-Jihadist/Muslim Brotherhood-Supporting, POS who HATES America and is doing everything in his power to Harm--if not DESTROY--our Republic?

BUT WAIT....Mitt Romney is 10 times worst, more dangerous and a bigger threat, right?

Obama wants to reset America and he’s doing a fine job. “Reset” is defined as: All power and control to the Godless people of the Government.

Yes, we are doomed.

ANY God-fearing person who votes for 0bama is a true hypocrite and guilty of sacrilege in the eyes of God. 0bama isn’t a Christian. 0bama isn’t a Muslim. Each have their ‘Creator’. 0bama’s an Atheist like the gays he’s in bed with.

You can't, no matter how hard you try. They take TRUTH and twist it so hard that it boggles a right thinking mind.

I love you people who demean, disparage and denigrate Romney and yet NEVER, EVER, can come up with even ONE example whereby whatever Dear Leader does, (such as this despicable conduct) that Mittens has done/said ANYTHING nearly as bad.

You are all blinded by your hatred and it's palpable and your conduct will lead to another 4 years of a B. Huessein Obummer Presidency.

But then again, who knows, perhaps that is what some of you actcually want???

Wouldn't it be nice is someone could turn those famous lib/commie cocktail parties into a scene like something out of a Three Stooges Short?

Let's see John Roberts sell out the Constitution with parties such as that instead of the sacred Liberal/neo Communist affairs he went to.

It's not that Mitts worse, he's just not that much better.

Honestly we don't know if he hates America as much as the Indonesian.

His record shows him to be a Freedom hating Commie, just like Bammy!

Please people, it is so much better to write in Sarah, to not vote, or to even vote for 0bama. We can only have four more years of 0bama, but we could have eight years of Romney. Which would you rather have?

Romney would give us the tie-breaker vote in the Senate with his Veep choice, but whoever he picks - even if it’s Sarah herself - will vote with the Democrats at every opportunity.

Can’t we all agree with Bikkuri that Romney will be just as bad as 0bama?

When I think I cannot find a greater depth of HATRED for Barack Obama, I’m amazed that I find more hatred for this Muslim, Marxist SOB who is occupying the American People’s White House. When I saw the 14 brave, courageous Wounded Warrior’s on Megyn Kelly’s “America Live” today, I was reminded of my visceral, vitriolic hatred for Barack Obama. Lord, please rid our GREAT NATION of this scumbag in November.

Yeah, right. My conduct controls the universe. Cut the hyperbole and remember this is a forum of ideas. I can express anything I want.

Unless you want the SCOTUS to delcare that unconstitutional.

Point: Notice how, at first, the GOP and Romney were all “it’s a penalty” and “we don’t know if we can reverse this, it’s hard” and all of sudden Romney is on CBS walking the statements of HIS people back?

And McConnell has to mea cupla with “You can bet if we are the majority this is our number one priority”.

Trust them? I don’t. Been burned too many times.

We need a strong conservative in the WH and strong conservative leaders in Congress. We are not going to get that in 2012.

every time obama says anything (unless it is an uh uh uh uh um rare moment) is scripted and calculated

how anyone can edit the declaration of independence and have no news reports on it is obscene.-but what else is new?

NO ONE should edit this country’s declaration, no one!
