God-Given RightsSubmitted by Gary Patridge on Mon, 03/29/2010 - 20:25
Could the wording be any more plain? Our founder's got it in the first sentence of the Declaration of Independence: "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them". Not even a Supreme Court Justice can pervert the meaning of that statement. It's an open-acknowledgement that our rights as freemen come from our Creator. Those rights are a gift and they come with a responsibility to at the very minimum acknowledge and attempt to comply with our Creator's laws. Too much to ask- to at least acknowledge the source of our rights?
All the activism in the world will be for naught until we at least attempt to re-engage and abide by the laws handed us by the only one true God. The forces we're fighting are not of this world- and as mere men, we won't defeat them.
The separation clause was never intended to drive God's laws out of government- it was intended to keep government from attempting to usurp and pervert God's laws by way of a state-controlled religion.
DailyPaul has become hostile to those who would recognize that our rights as freemen come not from the whimsical consent of other men, but are derived instead from the benevolent will of our Creator. We ignore this distinction at our peril.
