UPDATED. Obama can’t even SAY "God": at Hispanic speech, deliberately omits "Creator"

Update at bottom.

Friday night Obama spoke to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute in a half-hour speech. When he got to the part about what unites us, you know, the Indians and the Mexicans and the Dutch and British and so on, even after “we didn’t always get along,” what eventually bound us together, what made us all Americans, are ‘faith and fidelity to shared values we all hold so dear…’ and then Obama speaks the first words to the preamble to the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal….. endowed with certain unalienable rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Notice anything missing?

Obama’s version:
“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal….. endowed with certain unalienable rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”.

The American version:
“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.”

When he gets to the part on the teleprompter where it says “Creator,” he pauses for a long time and narrows his eyes, slides his eyes away from the prompter, and continues by omitting Creator, practically spitting out the words in the rest of the sentence. I’m not kidding. A chill wind did blow. See below. Apparently we do not all share the same values, then.

Obama’s glower.

Slide over to to 22:36 in time.

“You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!” (James 2:19)

HT to American Thinker.

UPDATE:

Thinking further about this. Obama should stand by our foundational documents AS WRITTEN, not leaving off words he doesn’t like. Omit “Creator’ today, ‘equal’ tomorrow? Look at how it changes:

Obama hypothetical version:
“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal….. endowed by their Creator with certain rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”.

The American version:
“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.”

Obama hypothetical version:
“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created, endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”.

The American version:
“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.”

Secondly, it spends a drastic message. First, of course is what I as a believer find sacrilegious: omitting the Creator from anything is a bad message to send. But even more, that we can omit words we find distasteful from the foundational documents means we can change them. Today verbally. Tomorrow as written. And if we can omit words we find distasteful we can also add words we find tasteful. And if the Chief Executive can do it, so can governments of all kinds, on down from the Oval Office to the smallest village’s charter.

In today’s society, nothing is absolute. Truth, morals, right, wrong are all relative. Apparently also in our Chief Executive Officer’s mind, are our most basic governmental principles are ripe for the editing. He showed it today. What will tomorrow bring?
