Wall of confusion - The Washington Times.

"To get religion out of American government, you would have to censor not just this republic's history but its Founding document: "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 ... ." You won't find a clearer or more concise expression of the idea of natural law and natural rights — or a clearer recognition of their Author. Few governments have ever been based on so explicitly religious premises."
