Founding Fathers indeed referred to the Creator

June 6, 2015

Sheila Kennedy [May 18 Taking Issue] asserts that, 150 years after the Pilgrims landed with their “Puritan” ideas, the founding fathers wrote a Constitution which makes no reference to God or divine providence.

She conveniently ignores the Declaration of Independence, generated by some of the same men, which refers to God and the Creator in the opening paragraphs. The declaration specifically says “unalienable rights” come from the Creator. It goes on to say that these rights are “secured” by government, and say that “ … governments are instituted among men … .”
