God and the Declaration of Independence

According to my Government teacher the last sentence in the last paragraph is proof that our founding fathers were deeply religious... here it is.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

SO i figured i would throw this out to you guys and let you all think about it. To me they were doing a formality and that is all.

So what are anyones thoughts?

Also this is a link to the website that has the entire Declaration of Indepence on it: http://www.pfaw.org/pfaw/general/default.aspx?oid=3280
