The Declaration of American Values Reflects Basis of America's Greatness

In releasing the Declaration of American Values today, Mathew D. Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of the Liberty University School of Law, stated:

"The
Declaration of American Values reflects the consensus of the shared values that form the basis of America’s greatness. The values affirmed in this Declaration are transgenerational and foundational. They are what make America a great Nation. At this crucial time in history as we celebrate the birth of this revolutionary experiment in self-government, we believe it is necessary to declare the values that unify us and that form the fabric of the United States of America."
On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, which announced the colonies' separation from Great Britain. One of the signers, John Adams, believed that the day would be celebrated as a day for remembrance with "solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty."

It is fitting that we contemplate these shared values on this 232nd anniversary of American independence.
