I don't usually quote wallbuilders, but original sources, but this is a photograph of a naturalization paper to become a citizen, signed by one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
It's interesting besides being a document signed off on by on of the signers, because you will note that it specifically required you to be a believer in the Christian religion.
No, I'm not interested in forcing anyone to be a Christian through government, but what you are missing is the States were *already* Christian.
Also, a point often missed, is Thomas Paine was never a citizen. His Common Sense pamphlet was specifically titled "as written by an Englishman", and he moved back after the war. When he came back over here after being in France - he still wasn't a citizen, and in fact, couldn't vote because of that.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
