Either President Barack Obama isn't familiar with the words “endowed by their Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence, or he doesn't subscribe to that part of the wording that describes people’s intrinsic rights. At a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee dinner Monday in Rockville, Md., Obama again either misquoted the words of the most famous document in American history or he purposely omitted them, CNS News reports
For reportedly the third time in a month, Obama said that "each of us are endowed with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
The Declaration of Independence, however, actually reads, “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.”
Conservatives contend that Obama's inability to credit God for the rights reflects his belief that, if rights come from the government instead of a creator, the government can take them away, too.
