Obama Re-Writes Declaration of Independence to Leave Out “Creator”

So let me close by saying this.

Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. To British and French, to Dutch and Spanish, to Mexican — applause — to countless Indian tribes.

We all shared the same land. We didn’t always get along. But over the centuries, what eventually bound us together — what made us all Americans — was not a matter of blood, it wasn’t a matter of birth. It was faith and fidelity to the shared values that we all hold so dear.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

This is one of the closing paragraphs of President Obama’s speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on September 15, 2010.

Caught a clip of this on the radio and I was amazed when he left out “by their Creator” when quoting from the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence.

Here it is in the official White House transcript and you can also see it on YouTubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kd7ZQZxDhjk

I’m surprised this has not created a stir – perhaps lost in the election results new the last few nights.

For reference, here is the actual first sentence of the Preamble:

“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.”
