{*1}  'Excerpts' from USA Founding Documents:

God is clearly included, relied upon & honored by the Founding Fathers... even in Jefferson's draft of the Declaration of Independence. So how now do unsavory persons remove God by deceitfully misrepresenting & 'quoting out of context' the Founding Fathers, especially Jefferson.

 {*4}  The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription

 Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation's most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring monument. 


IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. 

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. 

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.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.


We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

{*5}  The Constitution of the United States:  

A Transcription                                                                            

The Federal Convention convened in the State House (Independence Hall) in Philadelphia on May 14, 1787, to revise the Articles of Confederation. Because the delegations from only two states were at first present, the members adjourned from day to day until a quorum of seven states was obtained on May 25. Through discussion and debate it became clear by mid-June that, rather than amend the existing Articles, the Convention would draft an entirely new frame of government. All through the summer, in closed sessions, the delegates debated, and redrafted the articles of the new Constitution.

Note: The following text is a transcription of the Constitution in its original form.


We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. 


Attest William Jackson Secretary 

Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord*9 one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth In witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names, 

G°. Washington

President and deputy from Virginia

{*6}  The Bill of Rights: A Transcription 

Note: The following text is a transcription of the first ten amendments to the Constitution in their original form. These amendments were ratified December 15, 1791, and form what is known as the "Bill of Rights." 


{*2}  Amendment I 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Note: This clearly states that the government shall generally stay out of church delegation & there is no vise versa clause nor reason to believe it is inferred, for they had already included God in their governmental affairs & documents. Nor does it state, ... free speech ... except religion. Nor does it say, ... shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise thereof except in government, schools or public domains.  

What was intended yet 'not' currently implemented was freedom of religion in a relative biblical Christian context, permitting reasonable doctrinal variance & freedom of speech in a relative biblical moral context.

What has been promoted as 'separation of church & state,' primarily in the last 50 years, being contrived by disreputable persons motivated to degrade the moral character of this great national inheritance, is so out of context with the intent of the Founding Fathers it is absurd. Integrity is only an image to liars !!!

The following documentation substantiates the abovementioned & furthermore, that the 1st amendment by the intention of the Framers was to prevent the government from favoring, promoting, controlling, centralizing or nationalizing any particular Christian denomination over the others; basically avoid social-political-governmental Christian interdenominational conflict of interest, short of renegade pseudo-Christian heresy publicly or legally delinquent:

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”
