“We hold these truths to be self-evident, 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.”
From our nation’s founding, we have acknowledged the source of our inalienable rights as men, so eloquently stated by Thomas Jefferson in The Declaration of Independence.
Those rights have been hardwired into each and every person from birth. That simple recognition and affirmation, “by their creator,” was conspicuously absent in the closing remarks of President Obama’s speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on September 15, 2010.
As the President read from the teleprompter, his omission of any mention of The Creator was missed by the media and unremarked upon by those in attendance. But, thanks to the New Media (hat-tip Free Republic), we know the truth. BTW, here is a screenshot of the official transcript (just in case, you understand). And, here’s the video of the speech, FF to 22:40.
