“All Men Are (Blank) Equal”

We find it very interesting that President Obama's inaugural address today included the words: "All men are equal." Notice anything missing? Obviously he was quoting the best-known phrase in any of America's political documents, the Declaration of Independence, in which Thomas Jefferson penned these immortal words: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..."

This phrase was so powerful, Abraham Lincoln used it in what is arguably the most well-written speech ever delivered by a US President - the Gettysburg Address. Notice that he used the phrase exactly as it appeared in the Declaration of Independence: "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

Even Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. used the phrase in his most famous and enduring speech: "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.'"

So why, we ask, did President Obama leave out the word "created"? Was it an accidental omission? No, it was deliberate. For a speech as important as an inaugural address, every word is carefully chosen. What this clearly means is that our new head of state believes that God as Creator is an antiquated belief and must be ignored.
