yeah, but how do you put trust in them to come up with this "message" from God when they were even practicing what they were preaching ... slavery wasn't abolished until mid 1800's and some of the founding fathers had slaves themselves? so its hard to say they actually believed people had the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness ...
