Obama censors the Declaration of Independence
Life Site News ^ | 7/4/2012 | Phyllis Schlafly

Posted on 07/05/2012 11:08:50 AM PDT by IbJensen

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.”

Omitting Creator is a clear sign that he does not believe in God. If he doesn't believe in God, then the only reason why he said "The Christian thing to do is to support gay sex" was to manipulate people on purpose. He's a fraud & a liar & a conman. He deserves to be impeached.

His pandering to the homosexual agenda for America is proof that he is a godless wastrel, a phony and a danger to this nation even moreso than the muslim terrorists.

My apologies to conservative “lefties” everywhere!

Of course handed-ness is non-political.

My jab was directed at zer0, that his agenda matches his handedness as per the term “left”,”leftie”, etc... just
a semantic note.

He’s omitting “Creator” because he doesn’t think the American Public is ready for “Allah” just yet.

I think Schlafly is misrepresenting what Calles did in Mexico. He wasn’t going after Christians generally but just after the Catholic Church. I’ve read that some American Protestant churches were fine with what he was doing, thinking that this would give them an opportunity to convert Mexicans to their denominations. Calles was an honored visitor to the White House while Coolidge was President.

Phyllis, you rock even if the video is old.

Did he give speeches this 4th of July and omit them again?

I recall he had done this several times in the past couple of years but since I don’t listen to mindless pedantic palaver I might have missed what he said this year.

I understood what you where saying, I also knew you were crusin for a bruisin, it seems over the years, that even conservatives have been over exposed to leftist sensitivity training.

It is like sarcasm, no matter how obvious, you must use the /s tag, so many just don’t get it.

He’s not only the worst president, he’s no president.

He is a criminal.

He stole some dead guy’s social security number.

He operates under a false name. He was adopted in Indonesia and his name was changed to Barry Soetoro and was never changed back. Therefore, he’s operating on the nation under an alias.

Besides, there is considerable doubt as to whether this fatherless child was born in Hawaii or by the campfire in Kenya.
