It is clear from our true history that the Bible was the primary source of the "self-evident truths" articulated in the Declaration then codified in the Constitution. This progression, "...brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." as President Lincoln so memorably stated in his Gettysburg Address.
I am convinced that, to paraphrase Abraham Lincoln, "...if government of by and for the people is not to perish from the earth, this nation, under God, must have a new birth of freedom." If that is to happen, remembering from whence our freedoms come will be key.
