As a Christian libertarian, I

As a Christian libertarian, I think you need to educate yourself a bit more. There are many libertarians that hold the Natural Laws can be found in God's Word. At the same time, I hold that a true understanding of the world God created will lead to the same conclusions through human reason, although it is a little less direct. The idea is that these rights are derived from our human nature (which was created by God). Some, who are blinded to the truth, reject the existence of God, but this does not change fundamental human nature - anymore than rejecting the law of gravity means you float into space. To put it in a more direct manner, it derives from human reason - which we have because we are created in the image of God - but denying God does not eliminate reason. That would imply that CS Lewis was wrong when he wrote, "A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word 'darkness' on the walls of his cell."
