Rigid Secularism: Outright Deceit

Another excerpt taken from David Barton’s “Jeffersons Lies“, explains the outright deceit those on the left often use.

Another tactic associated with Rigid Secularism includes outright deception. Consider Ken Davis’ best-selling Don’t Know Much About History. In that work, he reminds readers of Patrick Henry’s famous speech: Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? … I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!  Strikingly, the only phrase missing from the quotation  is Henry’s fervent appeal to God: “Forbid it, Almighty God!”  Similarly, Davis likewise edited the Mayflower Compact so that it reads: We whose names are underwritten … doe by these presents solemnly and mutually in the presence of God, and one of anotherr, covenant and combine our selves togeather into a civil body politick, for our better ordering and perservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by vertue hearof to enacte, constitute, and frame such just and equal lawes, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meete for the generall good of the Colonie, unto which we promise all due submission and obedience … The portion omitted by Davis in the quotation is the Pilgrims’ unequivocal declaration that their work was “undertaken for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.”


In this and many ways, the left is always trying to take God out fo the equation.

The founders never intended for it to be that way.

What is meant by the separation of church and state?

The day after Congress adopted the first amendment, they sent a message to George Washington. They asked him to declare a day of Thanksgiving to God.

Congress wanted to show America’s appreciation for the opportunity to create a new government in peace and tranquility.

The founders did not intend for God to be separate from our official acts. The founders just did not want a national denomination, such as in England.

They did not want an established church, an established church would take away religious liberty.
They did not want an established church that could force people to worship against their will or support it with private tax dollars.
