Obviously, Americans ought to have a love for the Constitution (with all its flaws)--a love similar in nature (albeit less in degree) to that a child would have for a parent (with all his flaws), but that doesn't mean that we should call the former love "piety." Calling the latter love "filial piety" is really only acceptable because it's part of a fossilized expression, and even it can be misleading at times.
I sure hope your not the type to say that the constitution is a living, breathing document that we should love.
A la Mark Levine.

I don't think there is a mention or reference of God anywhere in the Constitution.

Where there is no mention of God, there is no hope.
