God Given Unalienable Rights

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.

Religion and our government. There are those who think the two have no place together. They get offended with the mention of “GOD” by anyone employed by the government. School teachers are afraid to mention any deity. They take offense to our national motto of “IN GOD WE TRUST.” They are appalled because our pledge to the American Flag mentions “ONE NATION, UNDER GOD.”

Are they also offended
because our founding fathers
believed in a “Creator” that made us free?
