Obama Again Omits ‘Creator’ When Speaking of ‘Inalienable Rights’ Cited in Declaration of Independence
By Terence P. Jeffrey – CNSNews – Sept 27, 2010

Just seven days after he sparked controversy by omitting the word “Creator” when he closely paraphrased the passage from the Declaration of Independence that says all men “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,” President Barack Obama again omitted the Creator when speaking about the “inalienable rights” that “everybody is endowed with.”
This time the president was speaking at a Sept. 22 fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, and his reference to “inalienable rights” was not as close a paraphrasing of the Declaration as it had been the week before.
“And what was sustaining us was that sense that, that North Star, that sense that, you know what, if we stay true to our values, if we believe that all people are created equal and everybody is endowed with certain inalienable rights and we’re going to make those words live, and we’re going to give everybody opportunity, everybody a ladder into the middle class, every child able to go as far as their dreams will take them–if we stay true to that, then we’re going to be able to maintain the energy and the focus, the fight, the gumption to get stuff done,” Obama said at the DCCC/DSCC event, according to the transcript posted by the White House.
Speaking at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s Annual Awards Gala on Sept. 15, Obama had left out the word “Creator” when otherwise virtually quoting from the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” Obama said at that event, “that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That’s what makes us unique.”
[…] On Fox News on Sept. 20, Bret Baier reported that the White House said the president had made a mistake when he omitted the Creator from his citation of the Declaration of Independence at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute dinner. The “White House,” Baier reported, “said that President Obama went off script and adlibbed when he made that mistake.”
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute dinner, however, was not the first time President Obama has omitted mention of the Creator when speaking of the “inalienable rights” cited in the Declaration of Independence. He has also published official presidential proclamations that take this approach.
On Sept. 17, 2009, for example, Obama issued a “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day” proclamation that mentioned man’s “certain unalienable rights” but not the Creator who endows man with them. This proclamation was issued in both Spanish and English—with neither versions mentioning the Creator.
[…] On Feb. 2, 2009, Obama issued a presidential proclamation for “National African American History Month” that mentioned “certain unalienable rights” Obama said “we all are endowed with” but did not mention the Creator, who, according to the Declaration of Independence, is the grantor of those rights. “The ideals of the Founders became more real and more true for every citizen as African Americans pressed us to realize our full potential as a Nation and to uphold those ideals for all who enter into our borders and embrace the notion that we are all endowed with certain unalienable rights,” Obama proclaimed.

If he believes that we are “endowed” with certain inalienable rights, then he MUST CONCEDE that “thought” is one of them and so is “voice”. Then why, at all, does he stifle our freedom of speech? As far as leaving out my Creator, he is only telling the world that he is definitely not a Christian nor does he have any belief in God. Each time he does this, he does not come out smelling like a rose as he thinks he does, but is waking everyone up to his true self. For those who care…will pull their head out… Read more »

Truthfully, I’m not nearly as annoyed about leaving out the Creator, since this is a repeat, as I am by this drivel: “we’re going to give everybody opportunity, everybody a ladder into the middle class, every child able to go as far as their dreams will take them–if we stay true to that, then we’re going to be able to maintain the energy and the focus, the fight, the gumption to get stuff done.” Leaving the Creator’s name out isn’t nearly as offensive as pretending he is a benevolent ruler, who by some mystical power will do what God failed… Read more »

If you allow me to change the subject? If this is true, it has interesting implications – someone could reseach it further. The Dems are now essentially telling the voters: if you don’t vote for us in November, you may shut down the government because the truth that has been kept as a secret at millions of $s legal cost (spent for about 50 eligibility lawsuits) may surface if the GOP gains majority in the House. WND reports: A key Democrat in Congress is trying to drum up support for his party by warning voters that if the GOP moves… Read more »

You know, Obama has received a lot of criticism about being too arrogant, and now he chooses not to mention “the creator” in a couple of public speeches where he mentions the Declaration of Independence. So, cut the man some slack. He’s just trying to lessen the criticism from the Right by not mentioning himself!

Frankly, I am thoroughly annoyed that he left out the word, “Creator.” It is from the Creator that we receive all of these rights spoken of and that we receive all of our gifts! It is this very mentality of Obama, this deliberate attempt to circumvent gratefulness to God, to circumvent humility towards Our Lord, that characterizes Obama and his administration.
