LETTER: Obama's omission of God seems intentional

Friday, September 24, 2010 | 11:04 a.m. CDT; updated 5:44 p.m. CDT, Thursday, September 30, 2010

On Sept. 17, President Obama spoke to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.  During his speech, reading from a teleprompter, he quoted from the Declaration of Independence.

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."

President Obama omitted the words "by their Creator" from his speech.  Why?

He was using a teleprompter so it must have been 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 the American founders revered and acknowledge God in so many ways.

The best action Christians can take in response to this is both work and pray for changes in Washington D.C.

Register and vote Nov. 2. We need more men and women who, like our founding fathers, understand that our rights are from God and not from man.
