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???
