Is the Declaration of Independence Still Relevant?

March 10, 2010 at 12:28 (Video)

Of course it is. The ideals detailed there and in the Constitution are logically and sensibly correct, true, and have demonstrated time and again that when implemented the result is a successful and free country and people. I am disturbed by the ideas of a civil religion that pervade this video, but still decided to post it. I would recommend just ignoring the obvious religious connotations and references to temples in Washington, or the obvious ‘revival’ feel of the vid. The idea of a civil religion is a heresy and should not be condoned. I don’t believe that is what the founders intended, although it may be what Lincoln intended. I do believe though, that these founding documents contain self evident truth, hence the post.

As a side note, if you want ultimate Truth, I would suggest you go to your nearest Orthodox Church. You can find out about that here. And no, I won’t accept comments debating the point. You can read for yourself the primer linked. If you can see it, fine. If you have any questions, you can use the contact page on that site and ask a priest. If you don’t want to see it there is nothing I can do for you.
