To remove our Trust in God, would be to nullify the Divine nature of those rights and soto nullify the rights that allow for this request in the first place. This country was established as anation “Under God”. This country is inextricably tied to the Constitution. First God gave certainrights that, because they were Divine – were unalienable. Then came the Constitution, a documentdesigned to protect those rights from abuse, and finally, from the Constitution, came the UnitedStates of America a Republic that exists as a manifestation of the Constitution.In this country
mandated. The right to deny God is, according tothe constitution which established that right, one that is God given. And it is my deepest beliefthat the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written by divinely inspired men.In many words they carve out and protect the rights of the individual from the whims of men. Ibelieve that a book or a document is divinely inspired if it lives. The Bible was, divinely inspiredbecause it lives. If we remove the parts mandated by the era of the writings, the bulk of theteachings and lessons are eternal and pertain to the development of the eternal spirit within man.Shakespeare was Divinely Inspired; his writings are a reflection of the same spirit that livesoutside of and through the limits of time and season.The Constitution lives and evolves as is required to fulfill its purpose, and that is to guarantee thatcertain rights, those which are God given, cannot be controlled by the wealthy, the powerful, or themajority. It exists to protect the rights of the individual, and of the minority. It does not limitgovernment as much as it limits those who are temporarily governing. A Democratically electedLegislature can be as despotic as dictator. As Thomas Jefferson stated when referring to thecondition of many early democratic state governments, "An
was not thegovernment we fought for . . ." (Notes on the State of Virginia, written in 1781-1782). He alsowrote,
"All the powers of government, legislative, executive, judiciary, result to the legislative body. The concentrating these in the same hands is precisely the definition of despotic government.It will be no alleviation that these powers will be exercised by a plurality of hands, and not by a single one. 173 despots would surely be as oppressive as one. Let those who doubt it turn their eyes on the republic of Venice
."Countries are taken over, governments are replaced through military coup – all this is not possible inthe United States because of our unique form of Republic. Our form of government guaranteesthat regardless of who or what group is in power, the country will remain the same because it is notsubject to the actions of those who are in power; it is subject to the one Constitution which isalways in power. We can amend it, but only so far as it clarifies the spirit of the document but doesnot change it. The foundation of United States of America is the belief that man is of Divine originand through that Divinity he has been endowed, by his Creator with certain unalienable rights.These God given rights and their protection are the sole purpose for the existence of thisparticular nation.
