Ran across this shared on Facebook: Obama Removes God from the Declaration of Independence. (It's on the channel of the American "Family" Association, so if you don't want to give them views, may want to find a different version (there are plenty).)

It only showed up on my feed because my best friend commented on it, so I don't feel like I can comment on a complete stranger's link, but I AM JUST BEYOND WORDS DISGUSTED RIGHT NOW, INTERNET.

1. From what follows, I wouldn't consider what he's saying a direct quote.
2. He's perfectly within his rights, especially given that it's not a direct quote, to a) get to the important part, and b) be more inclusive. (Ever heard of that concept, AFA? Good lord.)
3. OH DEAR SWEET FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER, THE COMMENTS. I went looking for another version of this I could link instead of the AFA version, and the comments I found on one purported all sorts of rumors (the flag pin, the hand-over-heart thing (twice!)....), and just in general are so ragey. Why do I read the comments? I should damn well know better by now.

And Internet, you should know better too. How about some fact-checking and some damn perspective? At this point, I wouldn't even be shocked to learn the video had been edited and the whole thing was a hoax -- sure wouldn't be the first time.
