Comment: Huh???

(See in situ)


You don't have to read a word of the Bible to understand the concept that man is born free and with the right to life and the pursuit of his happiness.

To me, that's implied by the fact that we are born at all.

But in the Bible, God gives us dominion over all the beasts of the earth, but tells us over and over to treat each other as WE would like to be treated.

The Golden Rule clearly means the same thing our founders stated about every person having the right to their own life, liberty and destiny because who among us would be happy being born into a lifetime of slavery?

My belief is that God WANTS every person to be happy on earth because I believe that God lives through us here on earth to some extent and wants us as companions in our afterlives for eternity as well.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
