Obama omits ‘Creator’ from Declaration rights language again!

He’s done it again! President Obama has removed “Creator” from the language of the Declaration of Independence when citing the rights with which we are endowed — by God, as the Declaration tells us. From the Whitehouse.gov website, the text of the President’s remarks to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on October 18:

As wonderful as the land is here in the United States, as much as we have been blessed by the bounty of this magnificent continent that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific, what makes this place special is not something physical.  It has to do with this idea that was started by 13 colonies that decided to throw off the yoke of an empire, and said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that each of us are endowed with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Update: From GlennBeck.com, Obama omits ‘Creator’ again…

…GLENN: Here’s what you need to understand. There is a difference in the idea of Christianity and how we all practice but not of the salvation and atonement of Jesus Christ. If you are a Christian, Jesus Christ is the savior. Through him your sins are washed away. He has the only power to save. Only Jesus Christ.

PAT: Well, what about collectively? Like if my salvation is tied into your salvation. So

GLENN: I don’t know why you have to do this.

PAT: Say then that’s the only way. If you’re saved, then I can be saved.

GLENN: So it is an affront to Christianity. It is the antithesis, right? The exact opposite of what is preached, or supposed to be preached by Christians. That is the Gospel. Not the social gospel, not, you know, the new social justice that’s the Gospel gospel, period. And if you want to change it, well, then just say “I’m changing it.” But they don’t ever do that. They let it evolve, slowly. Again, evolution. Now, what is the president saying in the speeches? How many times does he have to omit the word “Creator” in our Declaration of Independence? And then brush it off like it’s not important? It is gigantic. [Emphasis CAJ]

PAT: He’s done it at least three times including this one…
