Here in the Declaration of Independence is expressed love for God and for the creations of God:

           "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."

    The Declaration of Independence

    IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

          The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

          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. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

        He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the
    public good.

        He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing
    importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be
    obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

        He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of
    people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the
    Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

        He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable,
    and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of
    fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

        He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly
    firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

        He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be
    elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned
    to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time
    exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

        He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that
    purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass
    others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new
    Appropriations of Lands.

        He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws
    for establishing Judiciary powers.

        He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their
    offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

        He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers
    to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

        He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent
    of our legislatures.

        He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil

        He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our
    constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of
    pretended Legislation:

        For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

        For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which
    they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

        For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

        For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

        For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

        For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

        For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province,
    establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as
    to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same
    absolute rule into these Colonies:

        For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering
    fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

        For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with
    power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

        He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and
    waging War against us.

        He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and
    destroyed the lives of our people.

        He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat
    the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of
    Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally
    unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

        He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear
    Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and
    Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

        He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to
    bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose
    known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and

        In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the
    most humble terms:
    Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince
    whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to
    be the ruler of a free people.

        Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have
    warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an
    unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances
    of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice
    and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred
    to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections
    and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of
    consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces
    our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in
    Peace Friends.

        We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General
    Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the
    rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People
    of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are,
    and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved
    from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between
    them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that
    as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude
    Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and
    Things which Independent States may of right do. 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.
