Critics attack President Obama for omission of God in July 4th address

President Obama’s 2015 Fourth of July address to America honored and thanked the men and women of the U.S. armed forces, noting that he invited several hundred of them and their families to the White House’s backyard barbecue.

The President remembered the “founding patriots” who declared America’s independence 239 years ago and proclaimed “that all of us are created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights including the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

What has drawn the ire of the President’s critics is his total omission of the word “God,” including the traditional close – signing off with some form of “May God bless the United States of America.”

Obama ended with: “Thanks, everybody. From my family to yours, have a safe and happy Fourth of July.”

The DNC Delegation in 2012 moved to remove God from their platform and raised many eyebrows and is still criticized by the religious community – more here
