Why Leftists Hate God And Our Founding Documents

Below I have copied the first part of the Declaration Of Independence. I underlined two passages which make reference to God, Nature or a Creator. My goal here is not to promote religion in any way, nor do I think it was the authors' intent. The reason they reference God, Nature and Creator in the very first lines of the Declaration Of Independence, is to establish "inalienable rights", and to take the authority of bestowing these rights out of man's hands and place it under the care and protection of a far higher authority. By doing this, they are saying, "You are born with these rights, and no man can take them away from you."

While many claim to speak for God, none can provide proof of this which is inherently superior to the claims made by others who make the same assertion. In the end, God through his absence retains his supreme authority above man and we are left to quarrel over the differences in our interpretations and beliefs.The left's beef is not so much with God, it is with the concept of inalienable rights bestowed by God that is causing them trouble. Leftist ideology cannot be morally justified if the individual has rights which are beyond the control of man, specifically leftist-man. The two leading social structures promoted by the left reveal this by their names:
"Communist, ie communal: Shared by all members of a community; for common use" and "Socialist - a theory or system of social organization  that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole". 
While that may sound nice, warm and fuzzy to some, hidden within all of that fuzziness is the necessary fact that the rights of the individual are subverted and subjugated to the collective. You, the individual, have only those rights that do not interfere with the collective. Who decides this? MAN.

But, if your rights are inalienable, and are granted to you by an authority higher than man, there is no moral justification for another man, or collection of men, to take them away from you. Get it? Perhaps our founding fathers predicted the atheist movement of the left, so they threw in Nature to be on the safe side. So, dear God hating lefties, you lose. Unless you can convince everyone there is no Nature, either.

For the rest of you, smile! God is on your side.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
