    America's Great Religious Document

    Tea Parties and other spontaneous groups of activists are bringing a new appreciation of the United States Constitution to grassroots America, so this Fourth of July would be a good occasion to make sure that they also appreciate our other essential founding document, the Declaration of Independence. I urge all to find a copy on the internet (non-computer-capable oldtimers can look for an old world almanac on their bookshelves) and celebrate the holiday by reading the great Declaration.

    The Declaration of Independence is the official and unequivocal recognition by the American people of our belief and faith in God. It affirms God's existence as a "self-evident" truth that requires no further discussion, debate or litigation.

    The nation created by the great Declaration is God's country. The rights it defines are God-given. The actions of its signers are God-inspired.

    The Declaration of Independence contains five references to God: God as Creator of all men, God as supreme Lawmaker, God as the Source of all rights, God as the world's supreme Judge, and God as our Patron and Protector. The Declaration declares that each of us was created; so if we were created, we must have had a Creator and, as the modern discovery of DNA confirms, each of God's creatures is different from every other person who has ever lived or ever will live on this earth.

    The Declaration proclaims that life and liberty are the unalienable gifts of God, natural rights, which no person or government can rightfully take away. It affirms that the purpose of government is to secure our God-given unalienable individual rights.

    For the first time in history, our Declaration reduced government from master to servant. Government was proclaimed to derive its powers only from the consent of the governed.

    Knowledge of our Declaration of Independence should be required of all school children. They should also be taught that many of the 56 men who signed it then paid for their courage with their lives and fortunes, and that's why we are able to enjoy our freedom and independence today.

    It is dishonest for schools to ignore our nation's Judeo-Christian heritage. It is historical fact that our Founding Fathers were men of faith who took their Christian religion seriously, were well-schooled in the Bible, and believed that religion and morality are the foundation of good government.

    Fortunately, the Declaration is not subject to amendment or to whims and biases of supremacist judges who may claim it is a "living" Declaration that can be reinterpreted. It's important for Americans to be on guard against those who don't like our Declaration of Independence or are in denial about what it says.

    The message of the Declaration of Independence is under attack from the ACLU and atheists because it refuted the lie about a constitutional mandate for "separation of church and state." Atheists have filed numerous lawsuits in the courts of activist judges to try to eliminate our right to acknowledge God in public places, in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag and in Ten Commandments monuments.

    The atheists are trying to change American history, expunge all reference to religion from textbooks, and make us a completely secular nation. History proves America was founded by religious men who believed that belief in a divine Creator is basic to good government.

    We get the impression that President Obama is embarrassed not only about references to God, but also by the concept of independence, which asserts our national sovereignty. He's more comfortable bowing to foreign dictators, declarings himself a "citizen of the world" and pledging to "rejoin the World Community, " as he did when speaking to cheering German socialists.

    The globalists and international extremists really don't like our Declaration of Independence. A couple of years ago, then British Prime Minister Gordon Brown came to Harvard to lecture us to ditch our Declaration of Independence and replace it with a "Declaration of Interdependence" and a "New World Order."

    Brown's speech was a classic of impudence and globalist propaganda, using the word interdependence 13 times, globalization 7 times, and global 69 times. Brave Americans rejected Britain's royalists in 1776, and we don't want to reinstate any globalist supervision from Britain, the United Nations, or any UN treaties.

    Brown also peddled the politically correct line that all religions (Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists) have "common values" and "similar ideals." They certainly do not, as a rereading of our Declaration of Independence makes clear.

    One of the legacies of the late Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV) is a federal law that requires all educational institutions receiving federal finds to teach something about the Constitution on Constitution Day, September 17. In the absence of any law about the Fourth of July, it's up to each of us to observe this important 234th anniversary.

    The Constitution of United State is a great document and should be upheld. We have allowed our leaders to misinterpret this document incrementally over the years to further their agenda be it for the children or the elderly or for safety or the poor. Even now our elected leaders take an oath to protect and uphold this document and when they ignore this oath no one cares. If we the people are not going to hold these people accountable shame on us.

    It is because of postings such as this one, this site needs a rule 9.

    9. We have learned from bitter experience that discussions of certain subjects (politics, religion, abortion, sexual orientation, etc) often degenerate quickly. For this reason, we prohibit these subjects in our discussions. We also discourage "caliber wars" and the virtues of "open carry" topic; strongly encouraging you to take these discussions to other forums where these topics are the focus.

    Exclamation God is mentioned here...it is a historical document that changed the world!

    The Unanimous Declaration
    of the Thirteen United States of America

    When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    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. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

    He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

    He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

    He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

    He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

    He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

    He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

    He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

    He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

    He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

    He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

    He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

    He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

    For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

    For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:

    For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

    For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:

    For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:


    For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:

    For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

    For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

    He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

    He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

    He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

    He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

    He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

    In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

    Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

    We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

    Thanks for posting it festus. Unfortunately it like the Constitution and much of early American history is not taught in public schools today. Many if not a majority of young people and a lot of older ones are completely ignorant when it comes to these things.

    What is no longer taught in the PUBLIC schools is a good reason to home-educate the children and adults in our lives. Make sure you have discussions around the supper table about what America was intended to be and how to make it that way again. The Bible tell us we are to be the first teachers of the children and will be held responsible for what we teach the children.

    Great words Kathleen. Unfortunatel the reincarnated King George III and worse, hasn't gotten started good yet on controlling free speech and parental responsiblities to Government Standard yet!

    God's Truth is the only thing that will get us through these days.


    Everybody needs to read some Thomas Paine Common Sense and other works by him as well.

    I figure we have 5 more months to enjoy what we know as the United States of America, after that, the change will be rapid and the taxes will be unbearable. The Word of God, in our hearts, and the faith and guts to live by it, will honor God no matter what takes place here. I am not bowing to any King but the one who took my place on that old rugged cross.

    I agree with you 100%, Bozeman. Like I keep saying, "I may not know what tomorrow holds, but I do know WHO holds tomorrow". When times get tough, we need to constantly remind ourselves that God has a plan and that His ways are perfect. Americans are going to be challenged emotionally, physically, financially -- but most of all spiritually. Stay the course, My Brothers and Sisters-in-Christ. Your reward will be "out of this world".
