President Obama's Line Item Veto of the Creator

Our President has chosen a new path for our nation, one that should trouble each and every citizen, especially every citizen of faith.

On two separate occasions, President Obama, speaking about the inalienable rights in the Declaration of Independence, has chosen to omit the Creator from the discussion.

In so doing, the President seems to be trying to apply a line item veto on the Declaration of Independence to strike God from the public square.

How far this is from our Founding Fathers, from Jefferson’s statement that “the God who gave us life gave us liberty” to Franklin’s assessment that “God governs in the affairs of men” to Supreme Court Justice John Jay’s contention that as a Christian nation, America should choose Christian rulers. What would the Black Robe Regiment of the Revolution think of such a statement?

How far this is even from 20th century Democrat Presidents such as FDR, who proclaimed America’s entry into World War Two as a “defense of Christian civilization,” praying to Almighty God for his protection on D-Day, to allow the troops to “preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization,” and calling the nation to “a continuance of prayer.”

If there are any who doubt that our President is a Marxist, let them doubt no more. If any doubt his dedication to godlessness, take a look at his face as he reads the teleprompter (loaded with the correct text of the Declaration) and chooses to omit the Creator.

If there are any who doubt the need for spiritual awakening in our nation, look no further than this. Then heed President Roosevelt’s call to prayer for the nation. I hope you will join me in praying for spiritual awakening in our state and our nation before it is too late.
