Skip to comments.Obama censors the Declaration of Independence

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 doesnt say who endowed us.
Obama has done this so often that it cant be a slip of the tongue or a glitch of the teleprompter. Changing the words of the Declaration of Independence is part of Obamas 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 Gods 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 worlds supreme Judge, and God as our Protector.
Shortly before we started hearing fireworks for this years Fourth of July, the movie For Greater Glory opened in local theaters. It is a compelling dramatization of the Mexican governments persecution of Christians from 1926 to 1929, a bloody piece of history that has hitherto been ignored by historians and filmmakers.
This wasnt in some faraway Muslim country; it was in our next-door neighbor. Its 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.
Mexicos 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 cant happen here. The bloody part may be improbable in the United States, but the contempt for religion here is already evident.
Its 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 dont obey Obamas orders, the penalty is financial death. Its no wonder that Obama campaigned as a messiah in 2008 saying, we are the ones weve 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.
He’ll repent when the Devil does.
To Hell with that little Kenyan turd.
BUT WAIT....Mitt Romney is 10 times worst, more dangerous and a bigger threat, right?
I’m surprised he didn’t do it in Ebonics.
And did he say "inalienable" or "unalienable"?
Hell who knows? I don’t pay any attention anymore, just mouth off.
He is the anti- christ him self!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
Who or what is an Obama?
No. But Mitt is more than half as bad.
I thought Barry and his clown buddy proclaimed it “the white people’s Declaration of Independence”.
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.
Yep. Certainly no better because he will do it under the guise of conservatism. Not the John Roberts was the conservatives we dream.
Deu 32:35 Vengeance is mine, and recompense, for the time when their foot shall slip; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and their doom comes swiftly.’
Yep! Just another one of them “living” documents...
It ain’t him that’s the problem.
It’s the people who elected him and who will vote for him again.
You can't, no matter how hard you try. They take TRUTH and twist it so hard that it boggles a right thinking mind.
Fo shizzle homedawg. Peace.
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???
Frankly, I’m getting tired of the hyperbole aimed at patriots who try to stand up against the leftward drive (not drift) of the establishment Republican party. Your post is a prime example.
GOOD POST! Thanks
Its an anti Islamic/fascist document.
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.
That’s a clown president bro
Spawn of Satan
Oops.. that was supposed to be to Conservative Vermont Vet...
You NE’ers MAY think he is conservative enough.. but he is FAR from it.. and anyone who says they ‘need proof’ have their heard so fare up their arse that they can taste the leather from their tongue of their shoe.
Obama usually does not refer to himself in the third person; totally understandable.
I love liberty and hate Ghettobama with a firey passion.
hey Janet Napolitano, you dyke, FU you too you miserable POS
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!
0bama is but a fly on our apple pie.
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?
at least he’s not a communist
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.
he didn’t omit the word “creator”. he just changed it to the word “me”.
Anyone know what the article is referring to? Which recent speech? I looked on the WH website, and there is nothing like this anywhere in the two remarks he gave/released for the Fourth.
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.
OK, I found it - September 2010 speech... On Youtube back then, and reposed on 15 Jun of this year, which probably confused the original author (Phyllis Schafley).
Antichrist.....he sure got some power from somewhere. All the dems vote the way he tells them to vote and all the republicans are scared to death of him.
That’s a clown list bro.
Massachusetts did not join into the RGGI.
Of course it isn’t a glitch, the obama apologists (ie he is new , getting his footing, bound to make mistakes because he is green to politics (is that racist?) is getting old
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!
did he even read the Declaration today? anyone know?
He's an effin' muzzie, end of story.
So why didn’t he substitute Allah.
Typical of muslims to revise Bibles, texts and what not other people’s histories and identities in order to reflect their own narcissism to the best spot they want to fashion it.
