God was well recognized in the founding of this nation

This is my response to the two letter writers on April 26.

In Congress July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence second paragraph first sentence: “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.”

The Gettysburg Address by President Abraham Lincoln Nov. 19, 1863, first and last sentences: “Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal . . . It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

The Divine was well recognized in the foundation of this nation and repeated in the Gettysburg Address.

I rest my case.
