Writing for World Net Daily, Phylis Schlafly proclaimed that the Declaration of Independence is the nation's great "religious document." She observes,
The Declaration of Independence is the official and unequivocal recognition by the American people of our belief and faith in God. It affirms God's existence as a "self-evident" truth that requires no further discussion, debate or litigation.
The nation created by the great declaration is God's country. The rights it defines are God-given. The actions of its signers are God-inspired.
The Declaration of Independence contains five references to God: God as Creator of all men, God as supreme Lawmaker, God as the Source of all rights, God as the world's supreme Judge, and God as our Patron and Protector.
The Sensuous Curmudgeon calls this "Arithmetic Theology" and notes that:
We went to an online copy of Mein Kampf, by Adolf Hitler. Searching for “God” we found more than five such references in only the first four chapters. The implications of Arithmetical Theology boggle the mind!
Blasting Christian Nationalist tidbids from her keyboard, Schlafly goes on to say,
The message of the Declaration of Independence is under attack from the ACLU and atheists because it refuted the lie about a constitutional mandate for "separation of church and state." Atheists have filed numerous lawsuits in the courts of activist judges to try to eliminate our right to acknowledge God in public places, in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag and in Ten Commandments monuments.
The atheists are trying to change American history, expunge all reference to religion from textbooks and make us a completely secular nation. History proves America was founded by religious men who believed that a divine Creator is basic to good government.
