Bryan Fischer: Obama drives car into a godless ditch - time to get the keys back

Bryan Fischer For the third time in just over one month, President Obama has refused to include any mention of the “Creator” in his recitation of the Declaration of Independence.

The Founders believed 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.”

Repeatedly now the president has simply said Americans are endowed with certain rights, but persistently refuses to acknowledge with the Founders that these rights are a gift from God.

He stripped God from our founding document on September 15 when speaking to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. He did it again on September 23 at a fundraiser in New York City. And he did it yet a third time on Monday night at in Rockville, Md. when speaking to Democratic Senate candidate donors.

There are his exact words from Monday night, spoken as he quoted the Declaration: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that each of us endowed with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

This can no longer by any stretch of the imagination be considered unintentional or accidental.

President Obama is deliberately stripping our Christian heritage from us right before our very eyes.

If our rights do not come to us from God, they come to us from government. And what government gives, government can take away. President Obama has taken a long stride on the path that leads to tyranny and ruin.

We face a momentous election in less than two weeks that will shape the future of our nation and perhaps determine whether we will be a nation that honors God or a nation that winds up on the ash heap of history, joining every other nation which has ignored God or kicked him to the curb.

When Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn examined the wasteland that the USSR had become, he said, “Men have forgotten God; that is why all this has happened.”

If we don’t want to experience the fate of communist Russia, it’s poverty, repression, and utter grayness, we need to make some serious changes in the political leadership of our land. The time to start making those changes is November 2.
