    God did not write the Declaration or the Constitution. That's blasphemy. He gave you those things only in so far as anything true or good, belongs to God. However, even then it comes off as hubris to say that America is perfect.

    I did not say God wrote those, and I did not say that America is perfect.

    I also don't buy the nonsense about the Holy Spirit descending upon George Washington as is depicted in some paintings. All of that is hyperpatriotic nonsense.

    Well I don't know about that but I do believe we created the greatest political principles in human history.

    The American Constitution is an excellent document, and showed a lot of progress learned from the French Revolution which inspired your Founding Fathers. The same ideas would eventually, albietly a bit later, penetrate into Europe and Great Britain. USA was a vanguard of this new development.

    True, now I'm wondering why I thought that, I did know that your Founding Fathers drew heavily from french thinkers at the time, especially Montesquieu. Also of course British thinkers like John Lock. I might have gotten it mixed up.

    More from Locke, who grounded rights in the God of the bible. Hence our revolution was grounded in religious principles, theirs wasn't - and we know how that went.
