i think he wants to leave it

i think he wants to leave it open for god-believers (who would claim that their rights come from god) and non-god-believers (who would claim that natural rights exist due to rationality, etc).

im pretty sure he personally believes the former, that he himself gets his rights from the god of his choice, yet he isn't naive enough to believe that one must believe in a god in order to "have rights".
