...”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,...”Few, if any, of the documents of the early American period failed to mention God in some way. That is a simple fact. When you hear someone talking about how we need a secular society you might ask them what country they are talking about, it certainly hasn’t been America. That is the witness of history. Deal with it. If you want to change it, then you want to make America something is has never been. You want to remove the force behind a belief in equality, educating the masses, hospitals for the masses, ending slavery, and the civil rights movement. These did not come from secular academia but from the Pulpits of America.
America was created in the midst of a belief in natural law. Natural law is a product of God. The God they knew about was the God of the Bible not the gods of the pagans. Many of the Founding Fathers would not qualify as Christians but they had a firm belief in a God who created the world and was still involved in it. They were not the stereotype of Deists who claim that God was not involved.
When you talk about our foundations, put God right in the middle of it.
