Our self-proclaimed "Christian" president, when quoting the Declaration of Independence at a campaign rally on Friday, October 22, in Los Angeles, finally (after three unsuccessful attempts) got up the courage to insert the word "Creator" — as in "…endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, when asked why the president did not use the words "endowed by their Creator" in his Monday speech, told reporters: "I can assure you the president believes in the Declaration of Independence."
Obviously what was first reported as "a mistake" on September 20 was deliberate after the third omission of the word "Creator" on October 18. Surely President Obama, who taught constitutional law, understands that "inalienable rights endowed from their Creator" as stated in the Declaration of Independence was so revolutionary a concept that the history of mankind remains forever changed, and he knows the word "Creator" is the key component of that concept.
up until the writing of the Declaration of Independence the rights of citizens were granted by the king. But our Founding Fathers declared that our rights as citizens of this new nation were granted to us from our Creator and that was a totally revolutionary concept. After recalling my 5th grade history, I find it truly astonishing that our president can omit that revolutionary Creator concept three times and then restore it without any official explanation. Where are the Congressional hearings?
For without the word "Creator," one has to ask Obama: From whom are these certain inalienable rights endowed? The government? A king? An emperor? Allah? Buddha? Aqua-Buddha? Congress? Democrats?
