Richard D. Land: The American Revolution vs the French Revolution

„The French Revolution’s Declaration of the Rights of Man and its assertion of „liberty, equality, and fraternity,” were based purely on the human assertion of this truth, as opposed to the American Revolution’s basis of the „Creator” and natural law. The Americans appealed „to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions” and affirmed their „firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence.”

The American Revolution did not declare its independence from God – the French Revolution did. In fact, the French Revolution consciously attempted to go back to the pre-Christian roots of Greco-Roman civilization. Napoleon declared himself „Emperor,” as in the Roman Empire, not „King.” Some early devotees of the revolution dressed a famous French actor as the goddess of reason, placed her on the altar of Notre Dame Cathedral, and worshipped her.

The Judeo-Christian roots of the American Revolution laid the foundations that recognized and protected human rights instead of sacrificing them to the glory of the totalitarian secular state.”
