With a Firm Reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence ...

In case you missed the opportunity, be sure to set aside the 5 short minutes it will take to read through the Declaration of Independence this week.  Look for the several references to God.  Count the reasons for breaking w/ Britain.  Count the names and do a wiki-search on your 3 favorite signatures.  Look for the terrifically un-PC phrase "with manly firmness", and more. 
For a bit of context and wit [if a bit snippy], check out Gary North's satirical piece on proposed revisions to the Declaration.
