Obama Changes Declaration of Independence to Omit “Creator”
Watch the video to see this blatant disrespect for God and Christians in America
September 22, 2010
On September 17, President Barack Obama spoke to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute 33rd Annual Award Gala. During his speech – reading from a teleprompter – he quoted from the Declaration of Independence. Here is what he said: “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain unalienable rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”1
Obama omitted the words “by their Creator” from his speech. Why? Given the fact that he was using a teleprompter, I can only conclude that this was intentional. Either he, or his speechwriter, did not want to give credit to Almighty God. This kind of action would be in step with modern secular liberalism which is hostile to the Christian faith and hates the historical fact that America’s founders revered and acknowledged God in so many ways that are indisputable, such as these words in the Declaration of Independence: “endowed by their Creator.”
The best action Christians can take in response to this is to both work and pray for changes in Washington, D.C. You can start by getting everyone you know who is eligible to vote to register and vote November 2. We need more men and women who, like our founders, understand that our rights are from God and not from man.
- Here’s what the Declaration of Independence actually says. Obama left out part in brackets: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed [by their Creator] with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” ↩
