    I know I’m a little late to the game in commenting on this post. I would suggest that revisionist historians and the mention of God in our founding documents are what enable the fallacy of Judeo-Christian theocracy to survive. Without mention of a deity in the Declaration or the Preamble, there would be but one leg for the argument to stand upon, and little basis upon which “originalists” could credibly base their adoration of the document. As is, and despite a total lack of endorsement of Christianity in specific, the mere mention of God in a secular document written by priviliged White European males of the 18th Century seems to give similarly situated persons of our era the (erroneous) justification to believe that those men were in agreement with modern Fundamentalist thinking.
