Glenn Beck on the Declaration of Independence

Yeah; I would mostly like to avoid talking about Glenn Beck generally, and his recent appearance at my alma mater in particular, but I just can’t let this one slide:

For the record, while I’m thankful (to God) for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and the rights the latter provides, I can’t agree that they were in any sense written by God. I can’t even agree with the suggestion that Thomas Jefferson even had the God of the Bible in mind when he physically wrote the Declaration of Independence and referred to “Nature’s God.” And honestly, isn’t this one case where the original author’s intent matters?

Happy Independence Day everybody.
